I run this blog for fun. I fell in love with the outdoors when I was really little, so blogging about gear, nature, everyday carry, and survival skills helps me maintain and share my passion with those who peruse this page.
Being a student is my day job. I am currently a senior at the University of South Carolina pursuing majors in Business Management and Marketing, and minors in Public Relations and Advertising. I am a part of a really great church (Midtown Fellowship Downtown) here in sunny Columbia, SC. I play drums in our worship team and help lead a small group of college guys. I work as a river guide at a local outfitter some weekends, which is always a blast.
This explains why Real EDC suffers from lapses in postings from time to time. Anytime exam week rolls around or I am over-encumbered with other obligations, this blog tends to hit the back burner.
Anyways, I hope that you find this helpful. I would love if I could do this for a living, but as for now I will enjoy it as a hobby.
