I'm planning on a 4000 mile road trip, starting tomorrow. Having at least a slight sense of responsibility, I decide to give the truck a going over. Checked fluids, lights, tire pressure, and made sure that there is a fresh pack of chewing gum in the glove box. The Executive blades got a touch-up, too. I'm feeling ready. I'll try to post to this thread via Taptalk as I go. After overfilling the tires, I used the tip of the nail file tool to reduce the tire pressure to spec. Quite handy. (Image removed from quote.)
Day 12: Exec with a can of Trader Joe's finest!
October 12thThe Executive was on food duty today. Again.For lunch I spread my jam, I'm getting used to the small blade.I couldn't make a picture because my phone was in my backpack.Usually I carry it in my labcoat, but one of the pockets tore.I had some miso soup early in the afternoon. The scissors made short work of the packets. Here is the Executive posing with the miso.(Image removed from quote.)Executive, Ka-Bar Tactical Spork and Miso soupTonight I made dinner and it was the perfect time for a little challenge: peeling and cutting potatoes.(Image removed from quote.)Executive blade trial: peeling potatoesI expected it to fail. But then again, so did I when I cut my croissant a few days ago.The large blade is super sharp and thin. It cuts through the potatoes with very little resistance. Nice clean cuts. The length of the blade can prove a problem, as some potatoes are thicker than the blade length. I also noticed that it's harder to peel the skin of in thin pieces. Other than that it performed very well. One thing to keep in mind is the juices of the potatoes running in the Executive when peeling and cutting. I had to keep an eye on that.(Image removed from quote.)Executive peeling succes!
I did some more turning on my walking stick which I'll cover in more detail here. https://www.edcforums.com/threads/pocket-full-of-kryptonite.130576/page-4#post-2652174.I used the Executive to open the box of rubber tips.(Image removed from quote.)
So much exposure to this challenge has resulted in me succumbing to yet another purchase, a new Executive with white scales...Seller's photo:White Executive - Seller's Photo
Day 13When smartphone doesn't existed, I always edc a little mag lite. But recently , if I needed a light, I used the flash of the smartphone.In the last days I decided to reinsert a light in my edc, because it's more effective. The Executive helped me to open the blister of the my new toy 😀
...Long day of driving. Executive disappeared in the pocket, but didn't get any use. Ended up near Provo Utah.
