Feral Living

With persecutions of our people becoming so virulent and widespread, there may come a time when you will be moved on endlessly. It's imperative that you know how to look after yourself, because the methodology is to traumatize you incrementally into catatonic states of disociation, inflicting suffering via voiding you from being able to look after yourself. Learn to live next to nature, and nature will heal as your ancestors arrive to console and walk with you.


There are many reasons why people live feral, but for the majority, living feral means being chased down into displacement. Harassment can be religious, financial, marital, work, etc. Whilst benefit is attained from seclusion, within reverence of prevail elements of nature, I don't believe that balancing precariously on the edge of civilization for years on end is a choice anybody would consensually make without being displaced by the disposition of entrenched circumstance.

“People dwell in the wilderness for two - three days, maximum a week or two, those who live feral for years have or are encountering some serious societal problems; they are usually white and male. Be humane towards them, they have probably been put through more dispairity than you'll know.”

Below is knowledge gained from my experience of living feral, I've not included everything I know, but I have included that which would have saved me a lot of trouble to have known. Living outside is about preserving common sense, about wrapping yourself up warm, so you don't make mistakes from poor judgements, arising from being cold, tired and more than often hungry. Danger arises from so many situations, and places; hindsight gain from other people's stories prevents needless suffering.


Well-being is physical, mental and spiritual. Recite self-preservation to advert becoming susceptible to false charity (vinegar sponge tactics), be mindful of the opened fist of egalitarian socialism that'll attempt to slap you inconsolable from trust.

“Are you poor and needy… have you lived too well… want some open fist socialism… false charity slap you inconsolable from trust… whilst interloping… disinheriting and collectivising to interlope you're every sanctity?”.

Keep away from soup kitchens, day centres, handouts etc, you don't want to be receiving their offers of humble pie unless facing a life and death situation. Living with odour is nothing to suffering filth they spitefully yearn to subject you to.

Bad health will force you indoors and at worst will incur other / additional problems. It is really important you look after yourself, independence is paramount. Whilst being ill will get you sympathy, it will attract all the wrong people and could land you into a destructive hand to mouth relationship. It is really important to you keep up appearance, and eneavour to meet and interact with people "on the level".


I spent years acquiring good equipment from bad, so skip disappointment and read some advice, this could save you a lot of bother when personalizing this check list to meet your requirements. Common sense is required when purchasing items from the list below, for example, you don't want a day / night glow fluorescent tent if you are wild camping. I'd rather have a white tent in a snowy, icy region and display an orange silk flag should I want to be found.

It's important not to haul overbearing kit.
A spare pair of clean clothes is essential.

Try not to cut corners by going to cheap camping shops such as Trespass and Mountain Warehouse. This "outdoor" clothing appears the same, but more than often has poor heat retention and will soak up huge amounts of water rather than repel. I recommend local specialist mountain / camping shops that are not chain stores rather than Cotswold, Go Outdoors, Blacks and Millets. If, like me, you are walking over 60,000 steps a day you'll need hard wearing kit that will not fail when you most need it to work for you.

Today, within most camping and hiking shops, there is something for every eventuality. There is so much camping equipment that is really unnecessary, an easy life is not what the great outdoors is about and if you think this way, sooner or later the elements will get the better of you. To be tough and hardy when embracing fortitude, I roamed the United Kingdom for years with only a blanket! Keep your equipment safe, do not turn your back on your bag unless you are sure you are alone; your life will be harder if you loose or if your equipment stolen.


A bothy is a basic shelter, usually left unlocked and available for anyone to use free of charge. Bothies are found in remote mountainous areas of Scotland, Northern England, Ulster and Wales. They are particularly common in the Scottish Highlands, but related buildings can be found around the world (for example, in the Nordic countries there are wilderness huts).

Nant Syddion Bothy, Wales. Bothy was erie and profoundly creepy, I arrived at sunset, entering I found ten Steven King horror books on the window shelf, the building creaked as the wood burner fired up, paranoia came from unsettled edging of defined moment. In 1856 the Hughes family, lived there, and on February 17th they had quadruplets but two of the babies Margaret and Catherine died on the day they were born, then Elizabeth died on the 21st and Isaac died on the 22nd. If that was not tragic enough on March 1st their 5-year-old son Hugh died, on the 6th the father Isaac died and then on the 10th 3-year-old Hannah the last child died. The cause of their death is not recorded, but it has been suggested it was due to a smallpox epidemic.

Some local folks in the Highlands view bothies as houses of sin, bothies on the Isle of Lewis and other places have previously been torn down, dismantled brick by brick for being used as illegal drinking dens. Sometimes, it is best not to make it known to locals that you are using them.

Bothies have a common sense approach to conduct:

Most bothies are ruined buildings which have been restored to a basic standard, providing a windproof and watertight shelter. They vary in size from little more than a large box up to two-storey cottages. They usually have designated sleeping areas, which commonly are either an upstairs room or a raised platform, thus allowing one to keep clear of cold air and draughts at floor height. Most have a fireplace and are near a natural source of water. A spade may be provided to bury waste. Because they are freely available to all, the continued existence of bothies relies on users helping look after them.

Here is a list of bothies and where to find them, I don't believe the list to be complete. I heard there are one or two secret bothies from unsubstantiated rumour that are not disclosed to the public.

Bothies I have visited, some on two or three different ocasssions.

From my own experiences of bothies (I stayed in many both in England, Wales and Scotland, on multiple occasions) most people who use them are loners who enjoy extremities of solitude. Groups also use them, from men wanting to have a lad's night, to medics wishing to get away from the sterile environment of hospitals. Bothy users can and often do appreciate being out and about in the wildness for a variety of different reasons. Some are drug users using the remoteness of bothies to party illegally, others arrive with noisy motocross vehicles. For example: some people enjoy dominating and subordinating nature, whilst others are humbled and take sanctuary from being in awe of it.

Examine your own predicament and expectations, rationalize your approach when walking into an occupied bothy, observe reception and align demeanour accordingly.

Bothy users are normally sharing, although they can be condescending, especially if you have arrived ill equip. Most bothy users, both male and female, from my own experience have been respectful of gender. Nobody, unless it is a dire emergency (freezing to death) should be resting beside you on a platform, when floor space is available, first come, first served is a common rule acknowledged by most, if you arrived first and are settled in, they should move around you when settling in to accommodating themselves. Self-centred groups of bothy users arriving to party will view your want of solitude as a hindrance, sit fast in your space, you have every right to be there.

Achnanclach, by Loch Loyal, near Tongue, Sutherland, North Highlands, Scotland said no to the "spaceport". It is good to keep your senses roused when in remote environments. I often visited bothies accompanied by a bottle of single malt whiskey, and Gaelic folk music played through a battery powered Bluetooth speaker, having me own wee Cèilidh!
I stayed for one day and two nights, this bothy did not have a bad vibe other than creepy old metal framed beds into the other room, but the isolation outside spooked me.

Bothies are typically dedicated to their previous inhabitants, some information maybe displayed about this. There are no religious or ethnic stipulations on the use of bothies; historically, tired and weary souls have been the most welcomed.

Be mindful about previous activity both inside and surrounding the bothy. For example bothy users going to the toilet, most will go out with a spade, and usually not far from the building to dig and bury their excrement. Do not draw water from this area, flowing or not, always use the rule of leaving the vicinity to draw water from upstream, not just for drinking but also to wash cooking utensils etc; you don't want to be coming in contact with Hepatitis A/B and C isn't it? Not to mention Ecoli, and all the other aliment's sewage carries. I've arrived in bothies to find plastic bottles of pysh everywhere, and even excrement sprayed up the walls (Wainhope Bothy, Kielder).

Strabeg, Creag na Faoilinn, west of An Lean-Charn, North Highlands, Scotland. Accessing and departing from this bothy demanded I wade my way up to my waist through a freezing cold, fast flowing river, infirm ground sunk me to my knees at times, swallowing my boots into icey mud. Accessing bothies can be challenging, often involving burn jumping etc.
Strabeg, from the North and the river I had to cross twice, once during the night, the other in the morning. The river flowed fast and was deeper than it appeared, tempreture was not that cold because water was flowing but when I got onto the otherside I soon began to freeze up, so drying quickly was essential to avoid frost bite.

Burning fence posts is a common complaint against bothy users, I've never heard of a complaint of poaching, but that does not mean this does not happen! At Callater Stable bothy there was no wood burner, being so close to Braemar creeping mist from the loch pierced coldness into bone.

The majority of bothies are maintained by the Mountain Bothy Association, they make regular visits to these bothies to renovate and check on the upkeep, ensuring there is a standard of quality to the bare minium comfort a bothy provides. Police visit bothies looking for escaped criminals or missing people, bothies usually have an allocated police officer who will deal with any problems of legality that may very rarely be incurred from staying inside a bothy. Estate mangers will typically leave the bothies alone, unless they suspect you being detrimental to the estate, or if there is estate activities involving conservation of wildlife happening.

Ryvoan Bothy, Cairngorms, East Highlands, Scotland. This bothy was situated yards away from the popular walker's route of the Ryvoan Way, my stay until after dark was frequently disturbed by walkers wanting to have a look inside. The bothy seemed to be themed around the poetry of a previous occupant, and had a British railway mirror hanging on the wall, which I thought odd.

A local police office stationed around and about the Galloway forest once told me he'd been called out to a rave party consisting of more than two thousand revellers! I once arrived at Tunskeen Bothy to find an off duty paramedic tripped off his head on LSD.

You should always have an alternative in mind when planning to stay at a bothy, most bothies have surrounding areas where you can safely pitch a tent for the night. People come and go from bothies all the time, if you cannot access a bothy one night, the next you might be able to, also sometimes there is another bothy within walking distance. I think everybody feels vulnerable when staying at a bothy, but if you feel unsafe, leaving the bothy is almost always the best option, especially if the social situation continues to deteriorate without any sense of amicable resolve. Some bothies suffer from fuel scarcity, I recommend bringing charcoal, rather than coal, as it is much lighter to carry!

Allt Sheicheachan Bothy, Cairngorms, East Highlands, Scotland. This bothy was a seven-mile trek from Blair Atholl, through the grounds of Blair Castle, ascending North West following a wide established footpath. The burner, when stoked up, did little to penetrate the cold, the bothy had one ground floor room and an attic accessible from another door outside.

Whilst our ancestors were most definitely racist, in every sense, there are malevolent spirits trapped inside bothies. At Horton Green I was visited by a malevolent spirit of a wife beater, who disliked my presence enough to rattle whatever he could, against the calmness of the weather during the night. Other bothies can be sweetness and light, such as an old school converted into a bothy near Loch Loyal, up near Tongue, Sutherland.

The extent of isolation, the remoteness of bothies, can play tricks upon the mind. I've heard of a woman being so detached by the angst of society that she starved to death inside a bothy, fringe mentalities, disaffected by life, do exist in and about these places. I myself have experienced delusion from such isolation as the brain makes stuff up to compensate from lack of stimulation, insanity dwells upon the wild fringes of civilization.

Hutchinson's Memorial hut is a welcoming sight located at the base of Scotland's second-highest mountain, Ben MacDui. The isolation is intense in this area during the winter months, and hard core ramblers I have seen here at this time of year are visibly shaken by it. There is a legend of a grey man that follows ramblers to the summit of Mac Dui, although I've never seen him.

Psychotic, "look twice, three times" episodes have been a significant occurrence whilst isolated to extremity. Innocent movements of nature can often cause disturbance, especially if you are hypervigilance about your safety, both inside and outside the bothy. Take comfort foods with you, and light a candle rather than an electric lamp / torch, remember to both nurture and rekindle your soul.

Invermallie Bothy next to Loch Arkaig, to access this you'll walk past the lifeless and somewhat spooky clan house of Cameron; but might enjoy some beautiful waterfalls along the way. I was joined on my walk there by a guy working with the MBA. The bothy was busy, five members occupied my room, and another six in the other room; however they left me with a large bag of coal!

Although bothies can be squalid and idiot ridden, and at the best of times, cold, sparse and empty, they provided me with basic shelter far away from anti-White abuses I endured for almost over a decade. The far reaches were mostly influence free whenever bothy users came.

Inside Invermallie Bothy. Bothies can be warm, friendly and civil places; it is important to enjoy yourself whilst staying in them. I recommend staying no longer than three days in a bothy at anyone time, weather permitting.

Once they place you upon the altar of multiculturalism they'll endeavour to see you sacrificed worthless, estranged from every worth your ancestors struggled for you to inherit, you'll be demonized, alienated and dispossessed from every sanctity you've ever known. It is imperative that you attempt reconnection with your ancestral spirit through extremity endured by them, raised into successive generations, reached out, at length unto us.

Wild Camping


Camping on open land, regardless of ownership, is legal in a few countries, including Sweden and Scotland. In Sweden, a right of public access – allowing outdoor recreational activity on privately held wilderness – is enshrined in the constitution. In Scotland, people may camp on most unenclosed land, whether state- or privately owned. There is however a 'leave-no-trace' policy and a common-law outdoor-access code.


The British country is safe, there are no dangerous animals, whilst venomous spiders and one species of snake will make you ill, they are generally not life-threatening, however, other people, as innocent as they appear have the potential to kill you.

Wild camping, my tent pitched at Scorhill Stone Circle, Dartmoor.

The most important aspect of wild camping is for people not to know you are or have been wild camping. This mostly for safety, if psychopaths know you've been there once, they be waiting to ill fate you upon your return. You could also be preyed upon by predators, who could want just to spook your night, or worse rob, rape or murder you. So it is imperative that we leave locations as how we found them, not just for our personal safety, but for the sake of the environment.

Do not pitch near places frequented by people, or within locations known for wild camping, if you notice a previous "dirty" wild camp be mindful this could expose you to danger, you could be blamed for it.

Never tell anybody you are wild camping other than those close to you who should know about your safety. When you're isolated and alone, it's easy to over talk, maybe be overly friendly, especially in sociable places such as pubs, etc, where they maybe predators that will exploit your situation (hot shower, washing clothes, bed etc), if they offer after a few drinks the danger will rise tenfold, but your awareness will be diminished. Publicans have status, but as with taxi drivers they are informants, be mindful sharing information with them.

Remember when you are asleep you could not be more vulnerable, by placing yourself alone, out in the open you are trusting your surroundings, so make them safe by preserving privacy. If you are keeping an online blog about your travels, life, always publish entries 3-7 days after the events you're writing about. Be mindful about being predictable, for example if you are walking the Ridgeway, you'll want to publish the journey all at once to avoid predators being able to predict where you are going to be.

Don't buddy up with other people, ramblers, walkers, etc, especially if they initially approach you from a different direction to where you are heading. Stalkers don't just follow from behind, they also follow from being in front. They may be wanting to walk with you for an opportunity to steal your kit, or worst abuse you, people have assorts of reasons for being alone. Be not too worried about seeing car headlights, although you might feel exposed the driver will be focusing on what's ahead within the road, rather than searching into the distance for something or somebody they won't know is there, chances are they would not be interested in you anyway.


You must likely be thinking about pitching every evening at dusk. During these hours, shadow and silhouette are more evident, and through the night under a visible full moon. Peoples perceptions are heightened during the night, most people could be shocked by becoming aware of your presence, their mind is likely to race, imagining assorts of possibilities, chances are they could be more frightened than you, as through experience you'll probably know the outdoor environment better than them.

If you are pitching a tent in a woodland, come at least fifty yards away from the footpath. Think perimeter, using brambles, bracken, hawthorn trees to protect you, it is always best to find a protected area than to create one. Don't be spooked out by noises, you are taking sanctity in nature, living with, as with nature, if you are harmonizing with your environment animals that are not a threat will accept your presence as relevant. Don't be frightened of undergrowth, but always be mindfully aware of wherever you step.

I really enjoy a good open fire, when I am cold and tired I find the heat replenishing, but I recommend not lighting an open fire unless survival depends on it. Most of the time a fire such as this will act as a beacon, people will know where you are for miles around unless you are covered by dense woodland, I'd avoid it. Even if you are elevated above sight, people can still make out a glow, remembering shadow and silhouette. If you do have an open fire, use dry wood, you don't want to be creating lots of smoke.

Be safe and remain unseen, think Shadow and Silhouette / Camoflarge and Concealment.

It is much better to dig a fire pit if the ground is not too hard, failing that clear fallen leaves back, disperse ash (cold) and recover the area before you go. If the water table is height, place rocks in the groundwater and light your fire on top of that. Only burn wood that you plan to use, burn't wood will reveal that you have been there; this is not an absolute priority, but something to bear in mind. Burn all used toilet roll rather than bury it, leave no rubbish behind and brush or slide tracks when leaving the location.

If you are found nine times out of ten, you'll be rung into the police. If officers come be responsive and civil, don't try to hide or pause for time in your tent, unzip your tent wide. Let them know how long you are staying in the area, most likely 1-2 days, and you intend to pitch down and move your presence at dawn; they will not usually ask you to move if it is already dark, and you are reasonably safe. It is always best not to talk too much, just tell them what they need to know, keep answers vague about where you have been / where you are going, authorities have the worst capability for committing most horrendous abuses, because they are shielded with positions of trust.

If you are found, evaluate your situation, it's much better to speak with who find you, if approached it is best to assess them as a potential threat but not advisable to follow or approach them as strangers; stay on the side of minding your own business. If you believe yourself to be at risk, it is much better to pack up and pitch somewhere else rather than readying defence for a possible attack; get a good sleep at a different locality rather than no sleep where you are; once you are triggered, hypervigilance will elaborate the smallest disturbance as an unsubstantiated provocation.



Bivouac (French deriving from an 18th-century Swiss German usage of Beiwacht, bei by, Wacht watch or patrol) refers to a shelter constructed of natural materials like a structure of branches to form a frame, which is then covered with leaves, ferns, and similar material for waterproofing and duff (leaf litter) for insulation.

Bivouac, I stumbled upon this walking through a copse in Dartmoor.

Single-sided designs allow easy access and allow the heat of a fire into the shelters, while full roofed designs have much better heat retention. As a general rule, the roof should be at least a foot thick and opaque to block sunlight. These shelters, simple as they are, take time to erect, so used if you plan to stay a few days.

A bivouac sack is a smaller type of bivouac shelter. Generally it is a portable, lightweight, waterproof shelter, and an alternative to larger bivouac shelters. The main benefit of a bivouac sack shelter is speed of setup and ability to use in a tiny space, as compared to tent-like shelters. A bivouac sack is therefore a common choice for those camping in tight areas.

Long Distance Footpaths

If like me, you have suffered endlessly walking around urban areas due to anxiety why not take it to the countryside, and see, venture into beautiful places, embrace a healing ascetic that has for thousands of years been revered by our ancient ancestors.

Sunset over the River Severn Estuary from Leckhampton Hillfort, Cotswold Way, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, UK. I lived in Monpellier area of Cheltenham in 1994, walked my dog around Lechampton Hillfort regularly. Historically the area was quarried for limestone, thereafter unprofitable lime kilns and a dram way was errected.

National footpaths I have walked, all of them in segments, not consequently.

I have so far (at the time of writing this) walked Offa's Dyke Path, North and South Downs Way, Cotswold Way, Pennine Way and The Ridgeway as well as various sections of England's Coastal Path including, Devon, Cornwall, Yorkshire, Dorset, Norfolk and Pembrokeshire. I have probably walked upon sections of most long distance paths, such as the Southern Uplands Way, but rarely completely these paths from start to finish, for example I completed the Ridgeway footpath in three segments.

I lived in Llanstadwell during 2017 and explored Pembrokeshire coastline, including Shrumbles Head, Pembrokeshire

“When I became displaced on the streets of London, trauma induced anxieties prevailed, endlessly walking me through every depravity in every district within the city. Until one day I though why do this? Why not use this kinetic energy to see and explore beautiful places; reconnect with the spirit of ancestors that dwells about the awe-inspiring aesthetic of our homeland.”.

There are collections of hills and successions of mountains to climb, such as the legendary Caer Idris, Snowdonia in Wales. The absolutely beautiful Cheviots along Scotland's borders, and in England the Malvern hills, the Black Mountains and the Lake and Peak Districts as well as Dartmoor and the Yorkshire dales. Our homeland is truly beautiful, in every defined natural aspect, from the round rolling feminine hillsides, to the craggy edge of the masculine mountain edge, here, this, the land is us. Sole of foot to soul of people; steadfast.

“Have no time nor day for those not even will to walk part of the way, never to stay means never to be, to see as we have always been seen, to see, endless projection returned unto the bold, brave face of thee.”.

From these adventures of utter loneliness, I came to believe in myself, as the land, in the formation of who I am. It is those who refuse to walk, live and exist with us, to walk, in part along our life journey who sacrifice themselves, not us, because our land knows every one of us, through legacy, succession after succession, placed and displaced, we've always been here, generation after generation of our regeneration.


Between 2016 and 2020 I climbed many mountains both in England, Wales and in Scotland. A sense of accomplishment is essential to well-being, especially when facing all-out disinheritance; because you just need to remind yourself that your inherent worth is always with you through honouring your ancestors that bestowed that worth to pass on to your people, through nurturing succession. Because this is stolen from us, we can turn to natures embrace within ascetic of our ancestral homeland.

Descending Ben Macdui from the east is a truly awesome experience.

Never lie down and die, especially if you are being cast out as an opportunity mule, by haters who believe you should be fleeced hapless until you are disinherited worthless, deprived of every sanctity but refuse to scratch at nothing to plead for anything.


It's not always about how high you can climb up a mountain, hill sides can be nurturing, the subtle curvature of a long slope can be nurturing, there is a time for gentleness in life and for me, hillside walking has that. The Malvern Hills (Grid ref Lat/ Long: 52.1226°N 2.3432°W) are made from some of the oldest rock in England (around 680 million years old) and extend some 8 miles (13 km) through two West Midlands counties Worcestershire and Herefordshire as well as northern Gloucestershire in the southwest. The highest point of the hills is the Worcestershire Beacon at 425 m (1,394 ft) above sea level.

The Malverns hold significance for me as I walked these hills with my father as a child. More recently, at least forty years later I arrived at the Malverns and commenced my ramble north from Midsummer hill on the dawn of Summer Solistice 2019. At the summit of Midsummer hill there is a public shetler that gives some basic shelter from the rain, and there is also a cave located a mile or two to the north. I was stalked relentlessly, disturbing me, I cannot explain what it is like to have such sanctities raped, and it was the memory of my deceased father (died of brain cancer in 2013) they disturbed the most. But the panoramic view of the sunrise rising from the East was awesome expanse.

North of Hadrian's Wall and the Tyne Valley, the land rises to form the Cheviot Hills (Grid ref Lat/ Long: 55.478°N 2.152°W), which extend into Scotland and could probably be considered part of either the Southern Uplands or the northern Pennines. They are included in Northumberland National Park, along with Kielder Water and the Kielder Forest. These hills are beautiful with aesthetic that touches my heart in some many ways, I have few photos surviving, and the ones that exist don't really do the hillside justice.

The Quantock Hills (Grid ref Lat/ Long: 51°08′39″N 3°13′59″W) west of Bridgwater in Somerset, England, consist of heathland, oak woodlands, ancient parklands and agricultural land. They were England's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, designated in 1956. The Quantock Hills west of Bridgwater in Somerset, England, consist of heathland, oak woodlands, ancient parklands and agricultural land. They were England's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, designated in 1956. The hills run from the Vale of Taunton Deane in the south, for about 15 miles (24 km) to the north-west, ending at Kilve and West Quantoxhead on the coast of the Bristol Channel.


These places are heavily scrutinized by socialism because they are places with much to do of our ancestors, so although risky, are beneficial places to visit, but know you are being observed. This is one of the places disinheriting cranks will decimate you to prevent you from rekindling your ancestral spirit.

Dial 911: “Hell O, yesUHA, every freedom our ancestors strived and died for was betrayed”. Rhayader, Wales 2017

Most people believe curators are there to watch over exhibits, but this is true only in part. They also oversee how you react to exhibits or artefacts, to witness if you make any connection with them. You could be cursed by a visit which could have tribulations launched against you, bearing in mind I have never known a visit materialize any good fortune.

The least risky museums are those same ones located to a town or village, national park you may visit. Museums to avoid are the Tate Britain, National Portrait Gallery and the British Museum (where Karl Marx written his manifesto, compiled from the wrongful goings-on in the workhouses, and the artificial scarcity that created them.).
