    For the four months I was in Panama, a zip-lock bag to keep my leather wallet in, to keep it from rotting.

    Duct tape and safety wire.

    Our equipment wasn't garbage, but it was mobile.

    My folding Uncle Henry on my belt. It was given to me by my dad during high school, I carried it every day during Desert Shield / Storm. Over the years it has been used to process countless wild animals for the table. A couple of years ago I broke the tip while skinning a deer. I retired it to my safe and now have a Buck 110 that I always carry while hunting.

    Ok,The reason I said that was when I was in the Navy just about every one carried a Case or Buck 110 folder.

    I was Navy between '92 and '94, and a Buck 110 was with me even in civvies. Kept it razor sharp with an oiled hinge.

    The other with-me-all-the-time item I had was my coffee cup. It was a big blue insulated mug that would hold about four cups at a time. From the minute I rolled out of my rack to the time I crawled in it was with me. I was even known for going to the mess hall in my undies to get coffee before anything else. Those were the mornings the followed hard drinking nights.

    Now that's true Navy. It was the same in the late 60's. The coffee made the Navy run!
