I used to carry a good lockback, but I kept losing it, now I keep it in my truck. I guess you could say that its part of my EDC, but I dont actually carry it, so I group it in with the vehicle BOB. Knife on the Gerber gets the job done just fine.
Also, I forgot to add to my above list, I carry a pipe, tobacco, and pipe cleaners with me. Not sure how that would really help in a survival setting however.

I don't "carry" all of that type of stuff. Too much to be hauling around. And probably wouldn't be appropriate in most buildings I would think. But in my truck on the other hand, is were all of my stuff is stored. Any other weapons besides the knife OP?

Just a thought for you NR.
I really don't have anywhere at the moment when I can leave a cache of goodies for myself. I have always thought If I have to bug out maybe to bury a supply of goods in the garden or have a dog out space to allow this to happen. Maybe something you could return too at a later date ?
