My normal world EDC is:
A Leatherman
Cell phone
Pen
Change
Wallet
Surefire Light
Springfield XD in 45 ACP
and my Benchmade

But being deployed I have all my pro gear and tools of the trade.

I'm in the bedroom right now, and not as well equipped as when I'm up and about. But here goes:

ME: Gerber Diesel multi-tool, Photon MicroLight II, Swedish Match, wallet with cash.

Close By: I have a Go-bag with a basic first-aid kit, 2-pair extra socks, more cash, waterproof container with strike-anywhere matches and dryer lint, lightweight poncho, emergency space blanket, 100' of 550 cord, Gerber campaxe, Garmin GPS, 4GB USB drive (with personal medical data, a collection of informative textfiles), various packets from 2 MRE meals, glucose meter with testing strips and 30day supply of metformin (for diabetes), full set of level5 PCU (soft shell), a parachute flare and a jetboil with extra fuel cannister.

Vehicle: I have a case of MRE's in my trunk, 3 gallons of water, a 3-day pack with extra clothes, socks, more cash, fishing gear, extra CR123A batteries, extra AA batteries, a RS Pro-89 portable scanner, a portable CB radio, a CountyComm shortwave radio (it's not great, but it works and was dirt cheap!) a heavy duty poncho, poncho liner, two medical books, Gorilla Tape duct tape, several chemlights, MS2000 strobe, gloves, beanie cap, several heavy duty trash bags, several ziplock bags.

I'm rating my current stuff as Fair because there is more and more I'm learning that I need to have

Default Size schmize

My Leatherman k503x is tiny, but boy is it a powerhouse. Never leaves my bag, I'd sooner leave the house without cash than without this little guy. Makes me feel totally prepared just knowing it's in there.

Also have a smaller Swiss Army one but I think I've started to grow out of that one...

to LadyBugging, thanks for the honesty. Hope you get that military hummer as well. Sounds like you and your spouse will be just fine. When you go for your weapons (guns) be sure they fit you. Try some out. I love the Baretta model 92 but it does not feel right in my hand. I shoot Sig Sauer weapons because they work for me. ALways buy what works for you not someone else. Have a great day.

the thing that this post did for me was to make me back up and look at my kits. things like my first aid kits needed to be reviewed for dates and deterioration of products. Batteries in my lights haven't been checked in a while. I found some of my hard candles had succumbed to the heat of Texas. One of the things I got from this was I need to take out each kit every three months at the change of the season and be sure it is okay. I should know better. thanks for the wakeup call.

Ok. I'll take a shot at this. Now remember I'm a newbie and I don't understand all the abbreviations y'all are using. I'm assuming BOB means Bug Out Bag and I'm assuming Bug Out means 1st response - to go quickly, kind of thing. I answered fair. Here goes.

It's 6:30 am and I'm home so all of my supplies are with me. Close by and can grab in a hurry, packed and ready to go: 2 tents, blankets, sleeping bags, portable stove, solar shower, packaged water 4 oz. 200 packets, 1 water filtration system, pills to "clean" water, food (MRE's and dried) for 5 for 2 weeks, maps, hand cranked emergency radio/cell phone charger, 2 electricity converters that convert battery power to electricity, medium sized first aid kit, Para Cord (approx. 200 ft.), solar flashlights (2), battery flashlight and battery fan (gotta have in the south), clothes, fire starter (3 different kinds), dryer lint (see I'm learning!), .357 Magnum, 200 bullets, military field guides, generator (though this would be hard to take since it is one of those big ones that holds 25 gallons of gas), 10 gallons of gas in storage cans, $250.00 in cash, various knives, emergency medicine for my diabetic husband, 1 Black and Decker mini power station, 2 big tanks of propane, 5 smaller propane tanks, survival mirror, whistle, 50 light sticks, herb manual, cell phone, cell phone battery chargers - both electric and to use in the port in my car, laptop computer, $50.00 in coins - $20.00 in quarters (though I'm not sure why we're encouraged to have quarters), silver coins and a few other things I can't think of right now. Oh, and my notebook where I keep my notes and all the suggestions I'm learning about.

I hope that makes me fairly ready.

There are several things we are wanting to get in the near future:
land away from the city
more silver coins
more food and seeds
shotgun

Any suggestions?

On my person...I always have my knife. In the lunch box I take into work, I have a complete, mini survival kit:

To this kit I have added iodine tablets, an Opinel knife, some bandaids, and I've put the entire thing in a leather pouch with a belt loop on it. I also have a NOAA weather radio in my office along with a standard AM/FM with battery back up.

In my truck I keep 3 gallons of water, a duffel bag with extra clothes, a warm coat, water proof LaCrosse Snow Pack boots, a coleman stove, a multi-tool axe, a rechargeable MagLite flashlight, food rations, a first aid kit, cold weather gloves (one pair is water proof), a knit cap, a spare pair of prescription glasses, space blanket, Leatherman multi-tool, a complete tool box (sockets, wrenches, pliers, etc.), truck fuses, etc.
