The Fiber Optic Cable Guy Who Carries No Light: Everyday Carry Pocket Dump of the Day


You know the people that come out work on fiber optic cables?  Including the ones that come out and fix things when idiots cut fiber optic cables in their personal “hold my beer and watch this” moments (usually with heavy equipment)?  Well, I think Russell‘s that guy.  And he sends his EDC “Every Day Fiber Optic Field Carry” via Everyday Carry.

He writes, between working on those darn cables:

I spend 75% of my day outside, from publicly crowded spaces to remote back country towers and windmills. Wherever Fiber Optic service is required. I keep a simple load out with an emphasis on being able to cut, pry, bend and manipulate a variety of things both on the the ground and in the air. I believe in protecting myself and others around me if I can and rely on a Sig P365 to do so.

Good choice in guns, Russell.

But my gosh:  You’re in all sorts of places from holes to windmills to probably crawlspaces and other odd-ball places and you don’t carry a frickin’ flashlight?  C’mon.  This isn’t the MagLite era, my brother.

Congrats on the year of sobriety.  Really.  Good deal.
