Im a time traveler that can travel to other dimensions. In this one, im in the old west and the world is ending. But i have wifi. Recently i started wondering what in creation one would grab in the civil war era to 1880s if the SHTF? I was picturing mason jars of water, surplus knapsacks, bear traps, tents and spare boots. Not sure if this should go in History or here, so i guess here is best bet. Any bushmen out there, throw in your opinions. Feel free to quote marston from reddead.

I guess a good utility knife, the Bowie or the Arkansis toothpick would be period.
Tinderbox, canteen, compass, and a shit-ton of pemmican. Blanket, rifle, a fucking horse because fuck walking. Fishing rod.

I'm an Aussie, so, cork hat, billy can, tea, and flour for damper roll.

For sure extra boots/shoes. The "combat boots" back then where lighter weight, but dug into your feet like bitch because they were both the exact(no left or right) same but they have better grip and were maybe easier in the summer. Then riding boots/gaiters because horse. And winter.

They had canteens so no need for the Mason Jar. Definitely thirding the spare boots. Also a vest, a jacket, and an overcoat. Not too much tent so much as a canvass tarpaulin and some wool blankets. Maybe a basic Winchester repeating rifle and a good six shooter as well as seconding the Arkansas toothpick. Maybe a medium sized pan you could use for frying as well as boiling and roasting food and a short enough handle to eat easily with and a ceramic covered tin cup, maybe a fork and spoon. Spare shirts both long and short sleeved and an extra pair of trousers and you're set for years. All you need outside of that is the will to make money and the ability to not get caught and you're set for life.

Yes tarp and boots, but definitely mason jars, if not for water, than to can things to keep for longer. Probs some gunpowder too.

>cork hat
I had to know what this looked like. Is this picture a real one? Or have people taken a huge pseudoracial peanutty dump all over the whole concept?

Thats what wiki says but it seems like it would be less annoying to just let the bugs have thier rough sex on your eyes and lips
