I've always wanted to ask this. Have you ever actually used your whistle to call for help, or something? Or is it more of a "in case the building ever collapses, I can still signal someone without yelling my throat raw" sort of thing?

Curious. Also my Fox 40 Rescue Howler should be arriving soon.

I carry my storm whistle just in case. BTW, I also have a Fox 40 whistle. I have since replaced my Sangean DT 200V with an analog pocket radio from Panasonic, click http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-RF-P50-Pocket-Radio-Silver/dp/B00004T1XE/sr=1-1/qid=1169168135/ref=sr_1_1/102-8460196-2316122?ie=UTF8&s=electronics
to view. The Panasonic lasts longer on batteries and has a much cleaner sound. These little pocket radios, I also have the Sony version, make cheap backup emergency radios.

That Panasonic looks like our Grundig! But even as small as it is, I've never thought of EDCing a radio...

The Panasonic pocket radio is a very slick design. I often pull this little gem out when I'm at Starbucks or waiting for my car at the dealer, or walking the mall or lake. I grew up overseas, so radio is my prefered source of information, meaning NPR or community radio. Checkout the Sony pocket radio, click http://www.amazon.com/Sony-ICF-S10MK2-Pocket-Radio-Silver/dp/B00020S7XK/ref=pd_rhf_p_7/102-8460196-2316122 to view. I own both radios.

I decided I needed a bag a little bigger (and wider) than a Cafe bag, so I
ordered an Imago bag...it suits me better and is as flexible as duct tape.

I may soon need a 12 step program, anybody know the number of the
Betty Ford Clinic?
