've always been interested in what tools other people carry, what works for them. I'm always asking for reading lists too. I thought I'd share what it is that I keep on me all the time, with rare exception. Please feel free to tag me in your #EDC (Every Day Carry) on twitter @PDerrickS. Links are affiliated, to Amazon, if you want to buy something like what I'm using.

With this set up I can meet most of my needs and life's challenges. I preach, publish, and write. My work is largely done from my Bible (not pictured, an hacked Anchor Classic Note in KJV) or my laptop (old Toshiba Portege 705-35R). But this is what I carry on my person.
