This week, we have a guest all the way from Berlin, Germany. Ben (@roadsurvivalist) is a photographer, and as his moniker implies, he’s also a survival and bushcraft enthusiast. Read the full story to find out how Ben’s philosophy of preparedness factors into his everyday carry!
Hi, my name is Ben, also known as the RoadSurvivalist on Instagram. I work as a photographer and I'm currently based in Berlin, Germany.
Before I got into everyday carry, I was into survival and bushcraft. It was from those same principles and ethos of preparedness that led me to the realm of everyday carry. Eventually, the idea of having a well-rounded everyday carry became an important part of my overall preparedness, along with my other preparation and outdoor gear.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time and hiking in the great outdoors (which explains my love for bushcraft and survival). I also love traveling, skiing, all things car-related, as well as making beautiful images through my photography.
Favorite EDC Tool:
My most favorite piece? That’s a hard one. If I were pressed, I will say that it's probably my Almknives Victorinox conversion. It's a truly unique piece and it’s irreplaceable.
