What to carry as a SAHD

There are a lot of You Tube videos about what to carry if you are a survivalist.  They give you a lot of good ideas although it will make you gain a pound or two:)  Keep in mind this is just what I carry.  I need some time to post all the stuff from my backpack and the van.

  • Small bic lighter – laugh if you want but four year olds go to birthday parties and we go camping.
  • Leatherman Micra – it has scissors (opening freeze pops), tweezeers (splinters), tiny screwdriver (fixing sunglasses), and a nail file (sorry I scratched you buddy)
  • Cell phone
  • Coast V2 Tactical Power Chip Torch LED Flashlight – other than having a ridiculously long name it throws 110 lumens 590 feet, perfect for looking for that stinking doll that is lost in the minivan:)
  • A pen
  • Leatherman Skeletool – pliars (fixing toys), a good blade for a multitool, flathead and phillips head screwdrivers  and a bottle opener.
  • Handkerchief – yes, I wipe snotty noses
  • Money clip
  • Several ponytail holders – to keep my princess looking good:)

Needless to say I wear cargo shorts.  I need to get some cargo pants as I did have one day this winter where it was a bit too chilly to wear shorts (the high was below 30 degrees).  I would like to add one thing to the mix but it will need to wait.  It is the Casio Pathfinder PAW2000.  It has a compass and is solar to mention a few of its features.

Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes.
Oscar Wilde (1854 – 1900)
Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

  1. Hey brother, good post. Just my two cents, I had this watch (Casio Pathfinder PAW2000) for a year and I found the altimeter and barometer were not real accurate. After a year one button broke. I will say I “used it” and had it in a demanding environment. I did move over to the Suunto T6c and have loved it for 3 years no problem.
