Слава Україні - “Slava Ukrayini”

Brent, a successful American entrepreneur, was living and working in the Ukraine when the Russians invaded in February 2022.
But Brent decided to stay and help where he could, and distribute funds to needy residents, victims and refugees in Kyiv and Ukraine.

Here are his war entries. You can donate here:

Civilian War Kit

My Civilian War Kit:
  • felt insulated waterproof camo boots, 
  • Mad bomber down jacket rolls up into a pocket, 
  • Mad Bomber wool hat, toilet kit, axe for chopping up wood for fires or if needed to open a door to get food and shelter, 
  • a bag of protein bars which weighs too much, water filtration system maybe the most important thing, freeze dried packs of food 2 meals each, 
  • mad bomber sable hat for cold nights sleeping out, 
  • a balaclava, 
  • heavy gloves for biking, 
  • light gloves for biking, 
  • fingerless gloves for shooting/digging a hole to  hide in, 
  • heavy insulated biking pants 
  • two pairs of wool socks, 
  • two underwear, 
  • thick long johns, 
  • a heavy thinsulate lined Aparso jacket from Rudolph in Fuzhou, China. 
  • The Syndicate heavy sweater from a Kyiv brand 
  • and two Craft long-sleeve bike shirts, 
  • one USA nationals triathlon t-shirt,  
  • a book & reading glasses, 
  • a power bank, 
  • a yellow bike jacket by Pearl izumi with press written on the back (we'll see where that gets me), 
  • Russian hunting knife, 
  • 5 lighters, 
  • the Cervello tri bike no helmet.  
  • And luxury... I actually brought a pair of black jeans so I have two pants to choose from for my sartorial Elegance, 
  • a bike repair kit with a pump 
  • and the most important: an SOF signed Ukrainian flag, of course 
  • charging cords, 
  • a computer, 
  • a cell phone, 
  • all my credit cards,  passport, my ID for Ukraine, 
  • some candy bars for kids or when I get tired, 
  • ironically face masks which nobody uses anymore 
  • and very important a Listerine pocketpaks breath freshener. 
Two days ago I scored $6 vinyl 100-percent pure petrochemical boots with fake sheepskin lining. This will be my everyday dress shoes for now.... I love them

Of course All this fits into the small Ironman bag even though I only did half ironmans which apparently makes me half a man but that's still headed in the right direction isn't it?


I brought a very small bag from Kyiv (see above) with just 2 pairs of socks, 2 underwear & the one pair of camo hi-top felt Boots & mostly food and water filter and axe and knife in case I had to sleep out.  

With two pairs of boots I'm clearly living the high life...
