2 years is a long time in the EDC world, and Bryson's (@motown_edc) carry has changed considerably since being featured in 2019. Bryson is now married, rescued an awesome pup and has graduated with a degree in Parks and Recreation Management. Read on for the full story, and find out how Bryson's daily carry has evolved alongside him and his new adventures.
I am based out of Morganton, North Carolina. Since the last time I was featured, a lot has changed. I have rescued an awesome pup, gotten married, and am now a homeowner.
I currently work at Lake James State Park doing general utility work and maintain invasive species. I just recent finished college with a degree in Parks and Recreation Management. I changed my major from Recreational Therapy to Parks and Recreation Management as I do better working with my hands than I do my words.
I first got into EDC through watching Taylor Martin from BestDamnEDC on YouTube. I followed him through his DIY days of making key organizers to where he is at now. I like to have gear that is super versatile in everyday tasks, which helps guide my purchasing of new gear.
My hobbies consist of fishing, disc golf, and many other outdoor activities with my wife and dog. When my wife is at work and I am off, I like to hang out with my dog and play video games, though, here recently, I have been spending my extra time working on our house.
Favorite EDC tool:
Out of everything in my EDC, my favorite item is my wedding ring. One, I am honored to be married to such and amazing woman and still do not understand how I became so fortunate to call her my wife, and two, my wife put a lot of thought into finding something that truly fits me so well.
What's on my gear radar:
Up next on my radar would probably be some more slip joint knives/traditional knives to add to the collection. Another thing I would really like to add to my EDC is a Surefire EDCL1-T flashlight as I work outdoors at night quite often and a good flashlight is always nice to have.
