For new-commers to the Truth who may not have heard of the terms prepping and preppers before, it refers to making preparations for when the shtf. When the money markets crash and retailers completely collapse and supplies become desperately short. The plan of the NWO. The final and ultimate crash. I know this is doom n gloom talk; but we have to be realists. This is the ultimate plan of International Jewry – order out of chaos.
However I have mixed feelings about prepping. A part of me most definitely recommends we ought to be prepared. This is mature, practical and just using logic. And to an extent, it’s something that cultures have done for generations. Preparing for harsh winters, or for poor harvests.
But then there is another part of me that thinks are we just passively accepting their plans(?) Are we just adapting to the shit conditions they are bestowing upon us(?) It this just not gearing up for Plan B(?) And is this a wrong mindset(?) Are we putting too much energy into adjusting to their planned bedlam; and wouldn’t we be better off redirecting all that energy towards Plan A. That being that we stop this madness in its tracks NOW. We simply do not accept their organised chaos.
When I look around the internet at the hundreds of links to prepping sites. Especially in America. I can’t help thinking to myself – what an awful lot of energy. Time, resources, skills, and almost genius with regards to some people’s levels of adaptability. I think what a waste. I think it’s almost sad. Because had we collectively put all this combined energy together to fight the root cause of why we have this problem in the first place – we wouldn’t need to do any prepping in the first place.
But that’s just it – we don’t work together; unlike IJ. We have little foresight, we are too focusing on the numeral problems, problems, problems to look up and ahead at the root cause. All we needed to do is STOP, take a reflective breather and focus all our attention and energy on the root cause.
Now having said all of that, knowing that we Gentiles are not going to unite en masse to stop IJ in its tracks ……….here’s my wee suggestion as far as low key prepping items. Hand tools. These are often overlooked in prepping sites. But they are essential items and a big investment for their relative outlay ……if purchased second hand.
Often when I’m walking around second hand market stalls, I see some old-fashioned tools. I know for sure that these are going to have great value down the line. When we don’t have access to easily available power. I’m sure they are being increasingly used now, even before the crash. This list I’ve made below are only examples, as this list could go on and on. But it’ll give you an idea on some of the key hand tools which could be used in a survival/off grid situation.
Essentially you’re looking for a tool kit which would have been used in the 1930-50s. Quality steel with made-to-last mechanisms. Even if you get some of these key tools, it will be better than none. You could begin to buy a couple of items each week in second hand stores; and before you know it, you’ll have a reasonable prepping hand tool kit for times of emergency.
For those of you who feel you are not practical and fear using tools. Then perhaps you could do a basic 6 week evening course/adult education course. These courses won’t teach you to be competent, but will teach you the basic principles of how to use tools and the safety aspects. Also it is essential you learn how to sharpen tools, because this keeps them safer and easier to use (because you are not exerting unnecessary pressure). Then you just have to have a go. Watch lots of youtube videos on basic exercises. Practice on small DIY projects and slowly build up your confidence.
Hand tool kit
- old panel saws (both crosscut and rip) which can be sharpened
- triangular saw file and tooth set to sharpen saws. Try to learn how to sharpen a saw. You can’t sharpen the modern throwaway saws, but the older saws (Diston and Sanvik) you can. Once you have the hang of it, you can whiz through the teeth both sides in 15 minutes and you’ll have a brand new saw each time. This is vital when supplies have run out.
- hand braces and a set of auger bits to go with it. If you buy second hand auger bits, make sure they have sufficient ears (cutting edges) left on them.
- thin sharpening file to file the ears of the auger bits.
- wheel brace and several sets of good quality drill bits.
- chisels – set of 5/6 varying sizes. Best to get bevelled-edge chisels.
- sharpening stone/s. Different grades – course and fine. Perhaps get a diamond stone/s and an oil stone/s.
- oil for the oil stone.
- senior (large) hacksaw with many quality spare blades.
- wooden mallet.
- claw hammer.
- squares – including adjustable square.
- tape measures – several.
- builder’s string lines.
- spirit levels – small boat level and longer level.
- metal files – flat and half round; even a rat-tailed file.
- basic bricklaying/stonemasonry kit: trowel, hawk, club hammer, cold chisel, bucket/s, etc.
- bench vice for wood and metal.
- duct tape wrapped around some item – approx’ 400 mms
- bradawl and even gimlet.
- G-cramps; maybe even a set of quality sash cramps.
- stanley knife/s and plenty of spare blades.
- adjustable spanners or/and ratchet set.
- bolt croppers (as was used by those Muslim terrorists to highjack the planes on 9/11) 😉
- bow saw for cutting large timber (logs for the fire) with lots of quality spare blades.
- wood rasps (most underrated tool).
- tenon saws (old types which can be sharpened) need to get a suitable sharpening file for tenon saws.
- coping saw/s with lots of spare blades.
- sand paper – various grades (40 – 120).
- various wood planes – block plane – jack plane – smoothing plane and several quality spare blades.
- crowbar/s – small and large.
- pliers – thick and thin nosed.
- nail punches – one for pins and one for larger nails.
- (adjustable bevel)
- axes and sharpening stone especially for axes
- gas torch for jointing copper pipes – with spare gas, flux, etc.
- chalk line and spare chalk.
- screw drivers – (Pozi heads and flat headed) of various sizes, especially with long shanks for leverage. Maybe a ‘yankee’ screwdriver.
- spare parts for these tools – i.e. grub screws for the wood planes, etc
- mechanical tools – for repairs to vehicles/machinery.
Of course power tools could be used if one has access to a generator. But ultimately this will be reliant on some form of fuel. Also power tools and generators are not as mobil as a box/bag of basic hand tools.
Basic building materials
- various fixings – variety of screws, variety of nails, variety of bolts, brackets, plates, plastic rawl plugs, pins, etc.
- maybe variety of adhesives (watch for curing dates)
- various lengths of timbers: 4×2, 2×2, 2×1
- plastic cladding
- roof tiles – lots of
- cable ties
- jubile clips (hose pipe clips)
- reels of wire
- sand and cement (store cement indoors and be mindful of curing dates)
- exact size spare sheets of glass for your windows. Or perspex sheets. ready cut to immediately reinstall. [remember your local glazing shop will not be around, or sold out and unable to order glass in such times]
- door hinges with screws
- spray oil/silicone
- lead rolls
- large tarpauline
- various lengths of metal bars/tubing.
- chains and quality padlocks.
- spare locks – mortice and barrel locks
- spare plastic quick fit pipe joints
- glazing beads pre cut to size for your window
- plywood sheeting
Although this is not on the theme of hand tools; I would definitely invest in a decent off road bicycle, with plenty of spare parts (chains, tyres, bolts, etc). Perhaps consider a tricycle with a carriage area; or trailer to carry supplies (fuel, survival kit, etc) around. The ‘extra wheel‘ is a good off road trailer (carries 70 litres – made in Poland. See link below).
Also a decent fishing and trapping kit. And learn how to use your kits (even if you are a veggie/vegan).
I would also put a basic bug out bag together (if you are single and relatively fit). Have a look at survival kits and choose one to suit yourself and your environment. Essentially covering: fire starting, water filtration/purification, basic shelter and food sourcing.
You could invest in a watertight storage barrel (the ones canoeists/kayakers use) and stash a basic survival kit in your nearest forest or waste land (in the ground), this could be used in an emergency situation where you are unable to get to your home. You will need to decide if you will need an urban kit or a wilderness kit. But here are some suggested items which you can add or eliminate to suit your needs:
Essential items (absolute minimum)
- 20-30 litre rucksack or hip bag to carry stuff, in case you have to be mobile
- Carbon steel, full shaft, fixed blade knife, in a sheath
- Small diamond sharpening stone – medium grade
- Fire starting kit (all-weather matches and magnesium fire starter), along with a fire-enhancing kit (materials which will assist a fire – bicycle inner tube, fire lighters, etc)
- First aid kit and emergency medication, containing lots of plasters and a pair of tweezers. Plus pain killers and anti-inflammatory tablets.
- Water filtration and purification: filtration bag, tablets, or water straw
- Foldable water carrying container/s (min 2 litres)
- Basic fishing and trapping kit
- Basher/tarp with ground sheet and with tie ropes
- Waterproof paper, pens and pencil
- Emergency food packs and energy bars
- List of telephone numbers and addresses to contact for emergencies (written in code)
- Woollen hat – black/green/brown
- Head torch and spare batteries (possibly with additional green bulb option)
- Quality compass and map/s
- The SaberCut wire saw
- Marino woolen socks
- Basic sowing kit: two needles, tough thread, a few buttons and safety pins
- Spare mini keyring torches (say two)
- Cable ties – various sizes
- Lightweight breathable waterproof jacket – camouflage or dark colours (black/green/brown). Can act as ground mat at night.
- Metal container/s to boil water and cook food. Plus a fork/spoon
Important additional items
- If possible have two knifes: one as your main premier knife (4-1/2″ blade) in a sheath and a cheaper Mora knife as a back up. Both fixed blade, full shaft and carbon steel. Do not even bother with lock knifes, nor stainless steel blades. Your knife is probably your most important item on your list, so make no compromises in quality. Only get the best for your main stash kit, or home bug out bag.
- Foil hypothermia blanket
- Water purification bottle – with spare filters
- Basic bedding – sleeping matt and a survival blanket or lightweight compact sleeping bag (stored in airtight bags)
- Spare cash and/or silver coins
- Spare pair of glasses (esp’ if you are short sighted)
- Means of self defence
- Spare mobile phone. Get an old-fashioned type phone, with low tracking capabilities. Top it up with credit and have a wind up/solar charger (even though there could be a good possibility the grid may be down, plus it could track you down if you want to keep a low profile). Do not use your usual sim card. Do not have any telephone numbers stored in the phone.
- Quality multitool (Gerber or Leatherman)
- Tea tree oil for disinfectant
- Adhesives for repairs to footwear, tools, etc (superglue or two part solutions)
- Multivitamin and mineral tablets
- Basic hygiene kit: soap, luffa towel, shampoo
- Spare top/s, underwear, thermal underwear (stored in air tight bags). Avoid cotton, best use marino wool as maintains temperature even when damp. Possibly camouflage coloured tops, or dark/green/brown.
- Camouflage face paint kit
- small axe and round sharpening stone
- Bahco laplander folding saw
- Clothes washing powder
- More advanced fishing kit
- More advanced water treatment device
- More bedding comfort – full sleeping bag and self inflating mattress.
- Larger sized tarpaulin or small tent
- Spices, herbs, vegetable cubes to enhance food flavours
- Wet wipes (best natural/non chemical)
- Gatorade powder – to hydrate. Can buy in some grocery stores.
- Foraging book and/or a general survival book (in airtight bags)
- Sling shot and plenty of spare pellets (hunting, or even for self defence)
Better to regret having this stuff and not using it, than to not have it when you desperately need it.
I know somebody who has several stash kits in various parts of their county. These kits are only basic kits. Not necessarily with expensive items. And only covering the bare minimum to provide: fire, shelter, water and food [see ‘Essential items’ list]. Then they have their main stash kit which is closer to home, which contains more expensive/quality items and a more extensive range of kit.
Most importantly, learn how to use these survival items. So much so, you could use them confidently in times of physical and emotional stress. Perhaps do a few basic survival courses. Having these skills will massively reduce the fear factor in an emergency. It may be the difference in giving up or surviving.
Invest in a foraging book. Whenever you go out for a walk in the country, bring it and try and source a new wild food each time you’re out. Collecting free food is a useful and enjoyable skill to know, even now before the eventual crash.
However, I still maintain all of this prepping is temporary. The food, the equipment, the scurrying away in the wilderness. How long can we really last with our bug-out-bags? And where is there to run where we will not be tracked down by high tech drones? And would we want to survive in a collapsed society where we’re constantly on the run from government agents and bandits. Imagine the paranoia.
We would be far better off putting all our effort into Plan A now…….to stop this beast in its tracks. We need to pool all our energies into the root cause which is creating this end time scenario, and not focus our entire energy on prepping and passively accepting being in survival mode.
Plan B or Plan A?
