Is that a challenge? I've been using one daily for years ... the Swiss flag one.
Yup.  :cheers:
I’ve added some bits to the rules, the one at the bottom of the list and the parts in square brackets, to try and make them clearer. It’s still a bit of a mess though, I hope they’re understandable!
Ok, this challenge is about carrying a pen, instead of a multitool or knife, for 30 days.  :D


Ok, just joking regarding that. That would be too hardcore and .  :facepalm:
Serious:
I will carry only one pen for 30 days. I can only use one pen for 30 days.
Thats it.  :ahhh

Five Six Rules:
  • Carry and use only one Pen.
  • Don't lose it.
  • Don't touch [use] any other ink [or whatever type you are doing the challenge with] based writing implements.
  • Admit if I use a graphite or wax [or ink, if not doing the challenge with an ink pen] based writing implement during the challenge(Pencils and Crayons).
  • If my Pen runs dry, I can put in a new refill. But I cannot swap pens. (This probably means keeping the refill nearby)
  • Extra, added 16/09/18: if your job/school/hobby/etc requires the use of other writing implements, that’s ok, challenge-wise, but you have to tell us.

At this time, the reward is only personal satisfaction!
The challenge will start on the 14th of April, UTC time, and end 30 days later.

The Pen I will use!
(Image removed from quote.)
Matte Black(pretty sure its not BO) Bullet pen with clip and Blue fine refill.
Not much to say about it, except that its pretty?  :think:
There are other pens :ahhh ... are you certain?

First challenge is to use the same all the time, that would mean I have to start carrying a pen again. Second challenge would of course be not loosing that one.

Mine, at work:

Mine, at work:
Nice pen.  :tu: I’m not sure what you mean in your first sentence ?

And yeah, using just one writing implement as much as possible for the duration of the challenge is the idea.
And obviously you should try not to lose it, like with your multitools.  :tu:

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

Dominos? That’s the game where you connect together dominos with the same number of dots end-to-end?

That would be the one...I still can’t believe she killed me twice. We play up to 100 and I can get 99 points and she will come back and win.

Its an outdoor/hiking shirt from a Swiss Brand (Mammut), and it's our national uniform (men and women, any color). They are really expensive but of excellent quality. We wear it whenever we are not working, but especially while travelling and mountaineering. We also use them to recognize each other abroad as we are few (you would be surprised how well that works).

Thanks for the information. I will be checking it out shortly. I am always out hiking/outdoors or riding my mountain bike.  :like:

The price isn’t really that bad. They are treated and the short sleeve is at $69.00 which I have seen higher prices on shirts that will not survive the outdoor environment. But the item that caught my attention was the Chamuera mid hiking and trekking shoes. Those look nice.

Most Swiss shoe: Scarpa Mojito (another Swiss outdoor brand), everyone here has a pair and I mean everyone .

Hummmm...naw...looks more like a running shoe, and the color would be way to wrong for me. I’m more into the brown to blend in, a natural look.

I wear a pair of ordinary Nikes for hiking. I should wear something better (what, I don’t know yet), but I will never go back to traditional hiking boots.  :twak:

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

I have been wearing hiking boots since the early 80’s when I was in the Rockies. I have been wearing them since. Then for work, it was everyday. So it has become second nature to me to wear them.
