Cabin life....

Near my cabin.. True story..

And this place is under construction...

Уклонение Выживания Аляска / 逃避生存,阿拉斯加

"In the future I see - you're stalking prey through a damp shallow forests that was once Main Street USA. You creep around the ruins of a collapsing Mega Mall on your stalk. You'll wear canvas & Buck Skin leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. Your rucksack and webbing are handmade, and your weapon is from an Army that no longer exists and echos of a technology long past and forgotten. You'll scale the ruins of a dilapidated concrete Parking Garage with rope you made yourself. And when you look down, you'll see Men guarding their Tribe as others sun dry strips of wild salmon on racks at the basketball court of some abandoned school yard. Rejoice-You survived the Great Purge and its exhale"

Here on my page I will try to  guide the visitors through a general overview of my preparations for the coming collapse as I see fit for one man. I will stick to my Escape & Evasion plans and related topics that I think would be helpful or of general interest to the visitors as a whole. This is not about 'show and tell' to boast to the world about all my capabilities, kit, supplies, number of shelters or where, shooting skills, gear/gun stores, or anything i see as critical about my over-all effectiveness and safety. In fact I will be seriously cutting back on what I show in future updates and posts, thus denying the poachers and trolls of their desired sustenance. This will be simply a tailored overview with much editing done to preserve functional integrity/ Personal/Private Security. Also I'm NOT a word-smith, so beware.. haha.

 I will use lessons of the old schools, and lessons of new, that are relevant bits and pieces that I can employ into my current state of planning, and in the execution of various tasks to show examples of what I'm doing. I have continued to commit myself to this over plan for over a decade, or more without fail. I have a decade of experiences in the Alaska wilds and even more else where in the US and from many trips to Europe .

For me Its all about the plan and committing to it- PERIOD. I call this over all plan "The Spider-Web" strategy in Ft. Wilderness. My name for the wilderness of Alaska is "Ft Wilderness" because it truly is an impenetrable fortress. My SPIDER WEB strategy will endure and ensure that I have an honest chance to make it through the collapse, whether its from foreign Invasion or any event that causes catastrophic social unrest to the point civil disobedience and chaos causes things to shut down. The key being that it removes me from the equation of destruction at the- ground 0 event- . At my current state of preparations and readiness I could disappear in moments if the hammer dropped now. In the last few years all my experiences here in Alaska have really come together to make this plan possible through maturation..

Despite my vast experiences I'm still learning and adding to my over all strategy and tactics. This will never end. In latter half of 2016 I basically vanished from most of my internet dwellings and re-prioritized my habits simply to focus on the plan and putting it together. This included a radical up step in physical training and body conditioning. 2017 and 2018 were catastrophic low points in my life too and I simply went away for the most part, but I'm back now.

This is NOT an offensive plan. I'm not a Guerilla or Insurgent though a lot of what i do is based on the UW model. It's a plan to escape and evade and thus -survive and thrive- in the wilderness of Alaska, and on the outskirts of towns and cities when the hammer drops. The goal is to simply to escape the chaos and evade the threats by retreating to the wilderness where there's a network of pre-constructed shelters and survival pods stocked with non-perishable supplies waiting to be used.  Its a simple plan to remain mobile and remain alive until the 'Great Purge' has exhaled and thinned out the chaos, thus a new social equilibrium has been created that will give me a chance to make further planning..

There's really nothing fancy about this plan. Keeping it simple makes it smooth, flowing and applicable for my personal situation. However putting it together is another story though. The terrain, climate, weather, and distances required is uncompromisingly destructive and dangerous. That's 100% unavoidable and has proved to be thoroughly punishing, physically/mentally demanding and very time consuming. But that's life in the big wilderness. Whats more is the harder I work at it now, the less I'll have to work at it later if/when the plan is put into real use.


 I run this web page and YouTube Channel simply for the sake of motivating others or spreading some encouragement and inspiration.  Its proved very effective in this manner and I have seen the tide change in terms of how ppl see things unfolding for themselves.. I get constant posts and emails to that effect. Plus it gives me shit to do with my down time in the house. I'm not running this page to teach or instruct anyone but I welcome mature questions and discussion, or the  opportunity to help someone where I can here and there. This page is 100% free from profit or gains with its existence. I do what I do and what I want. Im beholden to no advertisers or sponsors to push bullshit to you. Please understand I do NOT argue or "debate" topics I put out. Malcontents or folks with questionable attitudes or motivations will simply be removed & banned for life. So if you've come here to play internet game, you'll waste your time. I have a 0 tolerance policy.

This is a plan for a civilian- by a civilian- to survive the initial crushing slaughter of the collapse and to live and plan for another day. I'm one man and I'm not suffering from any Dunning-Kruger complex. I'm just a man that realized long ago that the math is against me in every way possible. It's against me in terms of OPFOR, distance, time, supplies, temperature, calories vs energy, and so on. However by preparing shelters, scouting endless routes and planting realistic supply pods I have put myself ahead of this game and reduced the deficits that will work against me. This E&E plan works best for me in my current situation. That's not open to debate or discussion. Do as you wish for you, I will do the same for myself.

This E&E plan will not be accomplished with some demented fantasy of living like a feral wild-man running through the forest  living like a caveman. Early man died at a very early age because they existed like that. Surviving till their mid 20s was considered elderly.. Equally It will not be accomplished by gearing up like I raided REI and looking like you're heading out for a hiking camping trip neither. E&E is NOT CAMPING, nor is it BUSH-CRAFT.  Whats more is that I'm not a Gun Fighter neither, so loads of burdensome ammo and ridiculous amounts of body-armor will not be found on me just because some fantasy novel or instructor says Ill need it. I do what I do here because I know how it is here and when hammer drops you'll know what I'm talking about because no matter where you are you'll be living in the wilds just like me. My Alaska wilds will probably be relatively safer then most places, I suspect.

I'm an Evader, or Escape & Evasion Survivalist living in Alaska.. This is a creature of my own design, born out of the necessity of the situation and how I see a collapse unfolding for me. Its taken nearly 20 years to get where I am. i think Ive learned a thing or two along the way. I don't "bug out". That's the most idiotic term ever invented and it screams trendy conformity thinking from inside the boxed inter-web echo chamber. Sadly bugs have a very finite life span and are easily killed. I don't do other trendy alphabet talk or post on my page using military acronyms to sound high-speed-low-drag..That's not for me or what I'm about. I roam and plan outside the box of the social con-struct  and the woefully unproven social trends the internet community perpetuates as truth.

PLEASE remember this page is not about Bushcraft, camping, backpacking, hiking or packing the pantry/ home preparation survival before you communicate anything on this page. This is not a hobby or weekend activity. It's a way of life. S.A.S Survivalist and Picture Posing Kitchen Commandos, please dwell elsewhere, you're just going to piss us both off..(SAS: Saturday and Sunday Survivalist) This is definitely not about idiot Zombie Survival either. Also if you're a FILTHY Intellectual Poacher of Ideas to take back to your own site or Youtube, please seek life elsewhere. There is nothing more despicable and loathsome then a poacher .

Whats more is it has NOTHING to do with S.E.R.E or the military/soldiering. Please get that through your head now. My page and its perspective is about ESCAPE AND EVASION SURVIVAL-NOT MILITARY LIFE-!! This plan has nothing to do with the military acronym S.E.R.E. or what military S.E.R.E is about. That's a plan for missing service personnel to survive for a relatively short duration with the expectation of either capture or rescue. While both topics do share some related content and tasks, however, overall they differ greatly. My plan is much more in depth and of a much larger scale. Simply put its apples and oranges when compared. S.E.R.E. is more active fleeing while my E&E plan is more deliberate, passive and pre-planned. If I'm on the run under such a hard routine things have gone horribly wrong and Its probably my fault. If I become a prisoner of any post collapse OPFOR I will probably just be killed outright and have my kit plundered. Its that simple. Prisoners take up resources, so in a Post Collapse World a person like me would be a liability and an unwanted drain on someones resources. Ill probably just be killed outright..

"The Wild is no place for gentle folk who can neither fight nor fend for themselves.”

The objective of staying alive and not ending up as a grease stain on the forest floor will be accomplished by serious forethought, thorough planning, continuous training, continuous evaluations, 4 season scouts, being truthful with myself, who I am, about how I deal with this situation (truthful about my abilities and inabilities) and ABOVE ALL constant physical conditioning that will all together offer me deliverance to success and ultimate victory over defeat and not becoming dead in the forest.


When Im out here in the wilds alone, this is what most will feel when the hammer drops. There is nothing to depend on BUT YOU. There is no voice in the back of my mind telling me this is fake and I enjoy no mental relief valve that translates into an easy out if things go bad or I decide I have had enough. When preparing this caper In the Alaskan wilderness I truly am ALONE. Not like the pretenders on the network Tv shows who get checked in on and have a rescue chopper and relief staff waiting at the push of a button or with a simple sat-phone call, They peddle commercialized lies/fantasy for profit.  95% of the time there is no hope anyone will even find me, let alone know I'm even in trouble.  I'm actually really ALONE. Every time I go out I conduct a balancing act of skill, wits, experience and making decisions that will keep me alive and bring me home.

Whats more is that I'm not pretending to be a teacher, instructor or an expert that has never seen a real survival situation. That's not what my page is about. I'm not here to sell you bravado or false claims to feed my ego. I don't need anyone. This is a simple no bull-shit page, PERIOD.  Alaska is a dangerous place. People disappear here all the time. Something like 20 people disappeared in and around my area in the last few years. 2 or 3 of them simply parked their car to go for a short walk and were never seen again, and bear attacks and fatalities are on the rise.

  I have seen quite a few real survival situations in my life, most here in Alaska in the wilderness over the past 10 years. I'm always faced with something at some level regardless whether its mortal danger with beasts or just a hairy situation on a narrow mountain goat trail that i'd rather not be on. Ive seen much here. Ive been attacked by a full bore 600lbs Grizzly that I killed with my Ak74, and recently Ive had endless encounters with asshole bear, Ive had an epic fail at -30F in an ice cave, I been charged by countless moose, fell through ice, chased by a Lynx, Ive had a chopper rescue out there in Talkeetna and Ive had dangerous hypothermia quite a few times. Ive visited the ER for so many things-so many times that I simply cannot remember them all. Most of my suffering came to me early on when I arrived in Alaska when i thought I knew it all.. It was years of learning through sobering failure and it still continues to various degrees to this day. Most was simply from my inexperience, a general overall lack of real knowledge and me missing details that led to larger issues. These day my biggest issues are bear who are growing in population do the warming climate in my area of Alaska. Adversity and experience are THE BEST TEACHERS.


Ive looked into the abyss and payed my dues by putting in the time ALONE to learn/earn the lessons and respect that's required. Believe me when I tell you that once you've seen REAL- FOR YOUR LIFE- SURVIVAL you'll never want to see it again and you will see through the illusions projected by social media, charlatan teacher/instructors, YouTube E-begging Gangsters, Tv shows and internet forums with all their brilliantly epic amounts of bulls-shit. Most of the bull-shit put out in those places simply doesn't exist in real survival-Nor in Alaska. I will never put out anything I have not done or tried myself for real and at very great length. Once you look into the face of the cold indifference of a real life and death situation you'll do what ever it takes to never get into that situation again, I can promise you that. Now experiences like that are looked back on as a gift, I draw from them. For all the good and bad taken from them I consider every situation a gift of earned clarity and understanding that the ignorant, mislead, misguided and protected will never understand.

However regardless of my vast experiences I know I'm not teacher nor am I an expert. I'm simply experienced. Few people have any business, or RIGHT, teaching or boasting a rank such as being an "expert" or "instructor/teacher " but somehow vast legions of "experts" and "instructors" can be found by the unsuspecting and naive with as little effort as a simple internet search and happening upon the swarm of charismatic charlatans out there. Its become a filthy sickness of entitlement for so many to assign themselves such proud ranks they have not earned. Its  irresponsible and its dangerous to those who know no  better.

 I'm of the opinion "experts" simply do not exist. I am a survivalist of my own accord. Ive earned that title, and its not a rank. Whats more is that I'm not here to amaze or entertain you. If you want to be entertained please go elsewhere for your daily drama fix. Real wilderness preparation and training is hard work and pretty boring. Its not about the latest and greatest shit being pushed by people simply to make money off other people fears. People need to get use to that idea. Its not a Tv show, a celebrity "expert" talking head or fancy YT channels with mesmerizing graphics and fast talkers telling you what you need to buy. Real survival will definitely never be found in emotional politics, fantasy Post Apocalyptic books, dramatic movies or religious posturing, its simply not withstanding when reality walks onto the scene.


This page and my activities have NOTHING to do with MILITIA, III%'ers, FREEFOR, Oath Keepers, Max Velocity Tactical, AC (Armed Citizenry), NORSSK, Alaska "Bear-men", ALASKA WATCHMEN, FRONTIERSMAN, Alaska Militia/Alaska Watchman, Anchorage, Wasilla. or Palmer Militia or any other person or organization on EARTH. Whats more is I cannot be held responsible for links to this page in regards to where they are placed around the net. I also harbor no religious, racial or political  aspirations or agendas with my activities. I'm 100% pro-me surviving and nothing more. I have never offered and never will offer fidelity to any group or individual in regards to this page and what I'm doing-or in any capacity.. I also deal in dis-information in varying degrees and at the appropriate times for the inevitable prying personalities that are often attracted to my pages and who think they have a right to my personal business or my survival preparations.

Common misconceptions about Alaska.

It occurs to me that most people are suffering from some seriously misguided perspectives about the real Alaska. I didn't even understand the real Alaska when I set out to come here so many years ago. Some for the good and some for the bad. I had no idea about freedom of carrying a firearm, nor did I know about the lack of sales tax in most places or the lack of a state income tax. I was also pleasantly surprised about the state PFD check that is issued each year.

Most of the questions I get are based on what people see on reality Tv. Back when I arrived here there were not many shows about Alaska-Oh, and yes BIGFOOT. I just didn't know so I formed my own perspectives, like most folks, and they were mostly wrong.  Yes Alaska is vast and seemingly endless in its wilderness but regardless of this vastness there are loads of rules and regulations that vary from area to area and from season to season. One cannot simply come up here to hunt and fish as they wish, when they wish and where they wish. There are specific areas set aside and that's where you hunt or fish and you have to pay a lot to do it. They are ALWAYS loads of ppl at these places and its seemingly very chaotic to me and I want no part of it. This is so the law can keep an eye on people by congressing them all into one area during the hunting and fishing seasons. And this is not a bad thing because from what Ive seen people up here really take nature for granted and abuse it endlessly. Id hate to see what would happen w/o these rules and regulations. I observe and respect these policies and work around them as best I can without breaking any laws. Trapping too is also mostly out of the question for the regular guy. Most areas you can do this are very far away from me and the areas you can do it change season to season. It just outruns me.
,
In about 99% of the wilderness in my area you cannot even have a camp fire or cut living trees/vegetation. I must drive over 50-80 miles north to get to an area where I can have a fire, hunt, build shelters, or use private land. 6-8 month out of the year the weather and timing of other life obligations prohibit this. I do what I can, as I can, and where I can within the bounds of the law. It seems most laws are designed to discourage training activities with confusing language and it works in this way in regards to what one can and cannot do in survival training.


Never Quit Fighting....

My Politics..Because some will inevitably pry...

Its pretty simple- other then my woman, Im a loner by human experience teaching me its best to be, and by my nature. However humans are social creatures and interaction is unavoidable. I suffer no emotional delusions of implied favor or disdain towards anyone i meet when it comes to measuring their humanity. All things regarding  race, color or creed are to me as human as having skin, thus are never an accurate measure of a mans spirit and true nature.. I have truly learned media programs us to think these things are the measure of a person. For I do not measure but rather assume from a base level that someone is of good will and nature when I meet them, then I go from there to observe their nature as they display it. Ill natured ppl will easily tell on themselves if you know what to look for. I can read a person like a book. Everyone gets respect and good nature from me in life, no matter who you are, until its time to not have good will towards them. However humans of our society are deceptive and infectious creatures I just assume limit my exposure to.



I follow the Old Norse ways, and I do it in my own way. I don't care what kinda shit i catch for it or from who. Its part of who I am. I'm from NORSE–GAELIC (Scandinavian/Scottish) decent. Just because you are of European decent DOES NOT MAKE ME YOUR FRIEND, COMRADE AT ARMS, OR BROTHER.   However, I see nothing wrong with being proud of ones heritage and ancestral tribes as long as one isn't putting themselves above anyone else with delusions of grandeur. I do not see a point in hating others. People are people and do people things. Suffice to say I detest hate and those who bring it. I do not go around claiming to be "VIKING" like all these ridiculous Facebook and forum fan-boys who have never been one foot in a boat, let alone raided much more then their refrigerator. At best I'm a simple wandering Tribesman. I'm imperfect and broken but I try with all my will to live by the 9 Nobles. Some of you so called "Heathens" out there would do well to simply read the 9 Nobles more often to really understand it. Alas the TV show like Viking and other demented contemporary perversion have polluted the old ways. Most "Heathens" I have met are a disgrace to the 9.


I do not post current political drama on my page. Its all lies meant to infect and change a persons behavior through a campaign of deception and fear mongering. I am not right, and I'm definitely not left. Nor am I in between parties. I prefer the laws of nature and the wilderness over man.


Come to my page with good nature and you'll receive the same.. Its that simple.














This is my woman, my Wife. She is of the Yupiks here in Alaska. She's a true woman of the north. This woman and Mother Nature are where the politics in my life starts and stops. She is my tribe and "The Tribe Must Survive"...
