I promised a friend that I'd post a pic of my day/day hike pack and since I'm repacking tonight for a family hike tomorrow, here it is. It's almost EDC. I carry it when I'm more than a short walk back to my jeep, and also on day hikes. This is also the pack I carry on day outtings with my Scouts. It stays in the Jeep when I'm not carrying it, so in that sense, with me every day, and would use it as a GHB if I needed to.
I'm always looking for ways to improve it, so your suggestions are most welcomed!http://i1105.photobucket.com/albums/h35 ... 195309.jpg

Y'all helped me out when I bought a Condor Pocket Organizor a few weeks ago. After playing with it for a while, it's found a home in my Jeep. I've also been playing with a gifted bathroom/make-up bag that's been collecting dust. That one lives in my day hiking kit, that I edc when I'm more than a short walk to the Jeep. Neither is really a survival kit exactly, but a supplimentary kits that kind of wrangles a bunch of little things.
Thought I'd share a pic of both:http://i1105.photobucket.com/albums/h35 ... 0649-1.jpg
This is a Condor Pocket Organizer. It can easily be thrown into this day pack or my BOB.
