Yes, me too! I carry one in my glove box in my Escape. My boys used to call me "Suvivormom". ;)


I always take my Leatherman tool when I camp of fish. It's one of those things with pliers and a knife and screw driver ect... It's gotten me out of a lot of jams even at home. :thumbsup:

In the part of town I live in there is a joke that all you really need to fix anything is bailing wire and grey tape. :thumbsup: :lol:

Love the case AND the tools. I'm a tool person myself - love power tools. Used a nail gun once at a house rehab and wished I had a reason to own one! Of course, I guess I could use one to build my teardroplet!

:thumbsup: :applause: Welcome Kelly! Think I best head up to Newbies again. :oops:

Becca, the last time I used my bailin wire my daughter left her keys in her car. Gratefully she left the window down a bit. We took the antenna off, wrapped the wire around it and got the keys with a hook on it. Worked perfectly! Never forget the bailin wire. :twisted: Oh yeah and my new duck tape is reflective yellow. Still looking for some pink. :lol:

Thanks! And, I think at Michael's and other craft stores you can find all kinds of colors of duct tape (used to make purses and such believe it or not). I might go for the lime green or purple......

Please don't give me more reasons to go buy something else for my camper. I mean, colored duct tape? Now, I guess I am going to have to go drag myself kicking and screaming to Lowe's, Home Depot, Michael's, Cabella's, Bass Pro Shop to look around the whole store to see if they have colored duct tape. I'm only doing it for you ladies so please don't try and talk me out of it. Seriously...don't even try. Oh, and welcome aboard Miss Kelley.

:lol: :thumbsup: Well see! Tell the hubby the wallet is on a diet. He will understand. It's a girl thang. :lol: :twisted:

Now you girls all need a flashing light thing too. Just in case........Oh and in that toolkit you need to put some antibacterial band-aids.
