    Some of you might not know what EDC is, hopefully some of you do. Its basically what you carry on your person, or even in your truck or lunchbox to make your day easier, or carried "just in case". I have my phone, wallet, car keys, and in my lunch I keep some band-aids, hand sanitizer, and a small book I read at lunch sometimes. I also have assorted pills, asprin, motrin, etc. Sometimes I will carry some antibacterial wipes to wipe down the steering wheel, hand rail, etc. Anyone care to share?

    A lawn chair I keep in my truck so at lunch I sit in it, read the paper and enjoy the California climate:happy2:

    Wallet, lunch, bottle of generic aspirin, and when it doesn't disappear, box tape. Hand sanitizer is weak.

    Dam Tooner, a stun gun???? I knew your route was hazardous, but its that bad? Have you ever had to use it? You should bid off that route first chance you get. I knew you were tough, just didn't know you were that tough. Hope you never have to use it.

    Small radio, cell phone, sandwich bag with dog biscuits, 2 bottles of water.

    In the summer heat I’ll bring a large cooler with 10-12 bottles of water on ice.

    I live on route so anything I need is close by.

    Having locked my keys in the back of the truck way too many times, I carry a spare bulk head door key in my pocket. That, cigs/lighter and my wallet are all I carry on me while working.
