MAY IN ALASKA
Back in 1991 I was stationed at Clear AFS, Alaska with the USAF. We had a weekly courier run from our little radar site to Fairbanks. On one trip in May, we were about half way there when it started to snow very hard. The wipers on our government truck weren't working and it was very hard to see. There weren't any tools in the truck, but I was able to use my Original Leatherman, which I'm still carrying by the way, to tighten up the nut holding the wiper blade. We were able to safely continue the trip with wipers working. That Leatherman tool, camped on my fatigue belt, came in handy for quite a few years, but the Alaskan blizzard was probably the coolest use I ever made of it.
The tool that spawned it all. Our original Pocket Survival Tool® would set records for years to come.
