Basic Necessities on the Road
A basic backpack
1. A change of clothes An extra pair of pants, socks, underwear, shirt, etc. This way you can wash out your clothes in a sink with some Ivory and put on your extra pair of clean clothes. Rooftops are nice places to dry clothes.
2. Soap Ivory soap is cheap and you can use it on yourself, your clothes, your dishes, to shave, and any other sanitation needs. Ivory is an all purpose soap.
3. Way to access the internet You can use Google voice to call any numbers in the US for free right now. Lots of organizing is taking place online with people that you can trust. Just remember, big brother is watching electronics.
4. A calendar, a contact book, a pen, and paper To keep track of everything. Make sure to have backup copies in case police confiscate it. Only write down public knowledge.
5. A mess kit Cooking on the road is important. Activists got to eat. A stainless steel bottle for drinks, a fork/spoon/knife/can opener is good for cooking with, plus a stainless steel mess bowl that you can eat/cook out of.
6. Clean water This is really important, especially if you are camping so that you don't get sick. You can get iodine tablets or a SteriPen which you can usually find online or in camping sections. http://www.cdc.gov/healthywater/drinking/travel/
7. Prepaid card You can get these with cash. If the police confiscate it, you have the pin number and can get your money back. It is also a very good way to avoid using your legal name and keeping track of receipts. You can use these online to pay for things like a credit card.
8. Get a hard copy of The Complete Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook
9. A flashlight. The kind without batteries either powered by solar power or cranking flashlights are good.
10. A lighter, match, or iron/flink to start a fire on cold nights when camping. Please add if you have any info.
