This article is in conjunction with my earlier post “Arm Yourself NOW, White People!” and will cover some basics of survival gear for urbanites and suburbanites. Please make note that your particular situation will be different, so you will need to think for yourself and make your own decisions.
I certainly hope you’ve bought yourselves a rifle (or shotgun) and sidearm by now. Not only that, you also have to be prepared individually with items that you might need, should your local situation devolve and you have to move fast. What I mean is that you must have things to survive on a day-to-day basis, without having to depend on a traitorous, lying government in any way.
Whether you’ve figured it out or not, we are at war already. Or more accurately: A silent war against White people has been ongoing for some time now — a Marxist Cultural/PC war designed to subvert all White nations from within, right along with killing us in contrived shooting wars against ourselves and manufactured enemies. The sooner you realize this sorry fact the better, for when the real SHTF, all sorts of bad things will start happening fast. If you continue to cling to the multicult brainwashing of these people, then victimhood and slavery will be you and your children’s eventual fate.
The following is to help you formulate plans if you need to leave the area where you now live. Chances are, you will be staying in your own neck of the woods or, if you are lucky enough, have a relative or friend out in the country. You may also have to relocate to a more White-friendly area close-by and need to bring something to the table. You should first do whatever you can so you will not have to carry a ton of stuff on your back to survive.
But think about it here: A person really doesn’t need much to live — just food, water and shelter. You don’t need DVDs, the X-box, make-up, a feathered pillow, 60″ Plasma TV or any TV, hair-curlers, pajamas, dress shoes or snappy ties. That kind of thing is all BS, anyways.
Besides outfitting yourselves with this kind of stuff, make sure you have at least 30 days of food and water on hand at your house. Go with 90 days, if at all possible. Store food that will not go bad if the power goes out. Get a gas or solar powered generator, if you can afford one. You really should have something of the kind going on anyways, just for natural disasters, so don’t think it’s not important otherwise.
You should also be prepared for a quick getaway, no matter what you end-up doing. This goes for everybody, not just bank robbers.
Clothing: Let’s not worry about making fashion statements, okay? You may decide right off the bat not to dress in all camouflage or some kind of Ninja all-black, since that might make you stand out like a sore thumb within your particular community. You also may not want to be singled out by someone eyeing you with binoculars from afar.
But it’s entirely up to you on how far you and your local group take things. Of course, when it’s real obvious what’s going down, everyone will break-out the assault rifles, cammies and web gear.
Give yourselves as much leeway and flexibility. You can have a mix of options with a set of back-up clothing kept ready in your pack. Use one of those Space-saver travel bags (Bed, Bath & Beyond), where you can squeeze out all the air to make smaller and waterproof.
Try to make that clothing as rugged, comfortable and waterproof possible. Think layering too. You may have to take things off to lose heat or put things on to stay warm. Let’s say you already have the kind of clothing you want, but it’s not water-proof. Simple, just get a spray can of Scotch Guard. Do your backback, too.
Now, you can go on-line to someplace like Brigade Quartermaster, Ranger Joe’s, Cabela’s, or Bass Proshops and quickly find much of this kind of thing, or put it together on your own. Military and Hiking gear is designed for such things, so you can quickly take care of matters without having to jury-rig what you find around the house. But if you can’t spend a lot, you should be able to put together a pretty good set-up at home. You can also find things in regular old stores if you just use some intelligence. For instance: You can get a reasonable car first-aid kit at an auto parts or drug store (you may want to add a few things to it).
Have some good lace-up hiking boots and break them in well. I personally prefer boots with Vibram soles, since they once did a good job getting me out of some trouble during a snowstorm in the back country. High-quality, thick socks are just as important. Buy two pair, because you always want to keep your feet as dry as you can. They do have socks especially made, like neoprene or Gortex. Gortex anything is always great (but expensive).
You need something often called a “Go-bag,” or “Bug-out” bag. This is a carry-all with what you need to survive and still be FAST and on your feet. Now, you really ought to make this a “Go-backpack.” The reason being is that you can wear it and have both hands free (to carry a rifle or whatever). Try walking a long distance while shlepping a bag in your hands and you’ll see what I mean.
And no, I’m NOT talking about a giant back-pack for extended-type hiking trips into the great wild. Those 7000 cubic inch jobbies will make you want to fill it up and will feel like a ton very soon. Try hiking 10 miles into some national forest with 2 weeks worth of grub and you’ll know what I mean.
Trust me: The lighter you can go, the better. People, this is not a recreation trip where comfort is high on the list. And forget about the fantasy of hiding out in the wild forever — it’s just not feasible for 99.9% of people out there.
You should be able to get all this under 40lbs, easy. Plan on sharing certain things among your party to help spread the load (like the cooker and radio). Try to go much less than 40lbs, even 30lbs, expecially if you’re on the light side. People have fit useful survival items into a Altoid tin. Find the point where you can still move relatively quickly with it on. If you can’t ride a bike or run, then it’s way too big!
Remember, the littlest things quickly add-up in weight. Some people actually cut away the smallest unnecessary stuff like labels and extra straps. Also, be careful when looking at an outdoor catalog — you may go crazy and add all sorts of stuff that just look cool to have.
What you want is what they call a three-day pack, something in the neighborhood of 1200 to 2400 cubic inches and stores less than 30 or 40 lbs of stuff. If you are light-framed or a slim woman, go closer to 1200 cubic inches. Remember, this pack will contain only what you need in an extreme emergency. Keep in mind, bullets weigh a lot.
Some things to consider having: First-aid kit, dehydrated food for 3 days (backpack food like Mountain House), Beef Jerky and energy bars, 50 round box of pistol ammo, a complete change of clothes and socks, basic toiletries (toothbrush and paste, small bar of soap, wash cloth, deodorant, sanitary wipes, backpacker’s toilet paper), any medicines you require, thick wool blanket, bivy bag (a very small sleeping bag that will cover you in the field, emergency blanket (that silver looking thing), water purifying tablets or high-end hiking filter (about $60), flashlight (with spare batteries), chemlights, radio (shortwave, wind-up powered, if possible), 2-way radio for communication with the members of your party (extra batteries or rechargeables*), small field binoculars, field pocket knife (back-up for your combat knife), small cooking pot, Tommy cooker (a little fold-up platform) with two boxes of trioxane fuel, fork and spoon, 2 cigarette lighters, waterproof matches, 2 survival candles, 2 superglue tubes, a small roll of duck tape, zip-lock and garbage bags (get black ones), field compass, rubber bands and twist ties, pepper spray, notepad and pen, wire-cutter/pliers or Leatherman Multitool, 100 feet of strong survival cord, emergency smoke hood (about $70) kept in accessible side pocket (or full-on gas mask with spare container). 1 paperback book of something entertaining to read (mine is “The Journals of Lewis and Clark,” but you could go with a survival manual, the Bible or anything that will occupy your brain).
You could also get one of those emergency survival kits in a box, like the Ark III (3 lbs), that has food, packaged water and first aid for 3 days and will take care of much of what you really need right off the bat.
Keeping yourself clean and warm is the most important thing for your morale. You could supplement or replace the soap with sanitary wipes, like the “Travel-bath” 9″x9″ pre-moistened wash cloths. Merely brushing your teeth will make you feel better in the field.
You can wrap yourself up in the bivy bag (they compress down to nothing) and big wool blanket to stay warm and dry. Note, that a full-on sleeping bag is not on the list, the other stuff is much smaller and will work fine unless it’s very cold. Have a hat or woolen watch cap, too.
If you want a sleeping bag, look for one that compresses way, way down. You can add a bivy tent or waterproof tarp if you have to stay outdoors. For some comfort, you could also add a Thermorest brand inflatable pad which deflates and folds up very small.
You can also add some long-john underwear or light-weight silk to stay warm. Check out Cabelas or Bass Proshop’s hunting gear for warm clothing. Right around now, you need to start thinking about the cold. A warm, waterproof parka would be good. They have 3-part versions giving you lot of laying options — I saw one at the Costco the other day that cost $45 and available in olive green or brown. Naturally, they are many military styles in camo, like the ECWS Gortex breathable version (expensive).
Write down everything you got, look it over, try it on for size, think about it and make any changes as you see fit.
Your Main Cache
Outdoor tents, your main food and principal ammo cache; extra cooking gear can all go into large duffel bags or transport footlockers which can be quickly loaded into your car or pick-up. Here, you can have a lot more without having to worry about humping it all. Try to have some organization going on here and don’t just throw everything together.
Now comes a bit more of the tricky part: Weaponry. I sincerely hope it doesn’t come down to it, but it well might. Let’s put it this way: Should the government bring down the whole Police State business, then it’s time for all of us to fight back in anyway we can. If you band together with your neighbors (and you should), you can present a more effective force to combat whatever comes.
Also, things could easily devolve (or be instigated) into a race war, at the very least, and you should be prepared for that, too. This will be covered more in my next post on initial steps to take, local politics and group strategies.
If you carry a pistol, you can get a holster that can be stuffed inside your pants, say in the small of your back, or in a fanny pack should you want to go the stealth route and wish to conceal it. Or wear it openly on in a thigh-type holster. You can also get military “web-gear” which is like suspenders and belt with ammo pouches for your AR-15 or AK-47 magazines and many other kinds of attachments (see photo above).
For instance: You could have 3 loaded clips of AR-15 ammo in pouches on your chest, plus 100 rounds of extra ammo in your Go-backpack. Your sidearm would have a clip in the handle along with two spare clips on your belt and 50 rounds in your pack. Shotgunners should have 20 rounds easily accessable and another 30-50 rounds in your pack.
Check the military catalogues, or go on-line; again, don’t go crazy and keep it simple. Most of what you really need shouldn’t cost you more than three hundred. A military style gas mask will set you back $100, but you could probably get by without one (let’s hope). Much of the rest of this stuff may be in the house right now. Especially if you are a camper.
Get up with your neighbors and family. Just be honest, tell them current events have the earmarks of going south in a hurry (they do) and you want to know if they are ready for the possibility. Most of your racially-awakened neighbors will have already seen the handwriting on the wall. I have one friend who not only has all this kind of thing, but some high-end communications gear too.
If your nearest neighbors are reasonably equipped and ready, you can be a nucleus to even more once the SHTF. If someone blows it all off, don’t let it get to you. Don’t bother wasting your breath with do-nothing sheep. Those types quickly turn into victims or dead-weight, anyways.
You can feel confidence that you have taken the necessary steps that very well may end-up being the smartest thing you’ve ever done in your life, regardless of politics, etc. You will have the peace of mind that you’ve prepared for the worse, but hope for the best. That’s always good to do.

* Power is a topic all by itself. Batteries work better than a hand-crank but are heavy and you run out eventually. Rechargebles are nice, provided you can get to a source of electricity (get an inverter for your car). My advice would be a crank shortwave radio/flashlight combo for backup and have rechargebles for your 2-way radios and a bag of regular C or D batteries for your main flashlight. I like the Maglite C size, but you could go with the big 3 D-cell battery version and have yourself a handy “Negro-knocker.” You could also go with a battery-free flashlight like that pictured on the right.
