Survival Bros breaks the new Coast TX100 LED flashlight featuring three (3) colors: red, white, and blue!  We smash it on the concrete, throw it really far, and even run it over with a VW hippie van.  Before it was destroyed in our epic torture test, we did get some use out of it.  The light is lots of fun to play with in the woods, and on the street, yet tactical with the different lighting options.  I prefer to use red light in the dark, primarily so I’m less likely to be seen.  Using red at night helps preserve your optimal vision, as white light is hard on the eyes and takes maybe 15 minutes for you to adjust to.  Blue is excellent for cutting through fog in order to see, and be seen.  

In conclusion, Survival Bros uses the TX100 because it’s durable, light weight, and practical.  Plus, with a scalloped bevel on the end, it’s perfect for self defense.  You could blind an attacker, then punch them with the sharp rim around the LEDs.  The small light sure took a beating.  I figured it would have broken sooner when I was hitting it on the pavement.  But all of Coast’s lights, knives, and lanterns have tested well in our product reviews.  Visit Coast’s website for all the tech specs, and make sure to read their fascinating blog articles too.  http://www.coastportland.com  More gear stress tests soon.  Keep checking back here.  Much appreciated.

BREAKING NEWS!

Two Killer Whales, or orcas have been spotted migrating North near Cannon Beach in Oregon State.  I was enjoying a wet hike from Short Sands Beach at Oswald West State Park out to Cape Falcon when I shot this HD video.  When I climbed to the edge of a dangerous cliff near the water of the Pacific Ocean I saw these 2 beautiful beasts approaching on my left.  I had to get my LG G2 smart phone out to film, but I was torn between looking at the creatures, and the camera screen.  However, I saw plenty of my friends, and got the shot for all of you.  

This was possibly the best experience of my life.  Orcas (and dolphins) are magical creatures, and probably smarter than humans.  I think they wanted to hang out with me.  But one slip, and I would have gone tumbling down the mountain side, and become fresh fish food.  I was only posted up at the location where I spotted these mammals for a few minutes.  After they left, so did I.  I’d seen the best, and it was pouring.  All of my clothes got soaked when I made my way back through the damp plants.  I didn’t mind being cold.  I was amped from seeing my wild buddies do their thing.  It gave me energy for the journey.  Now I don’t ever want to go to a zoo again.  It’s not the same.  Stay wild!

Here’s more RAW footage I posted on my other YouTube channel

Play ball with the Survival Bros mascot Mocha The Puggle.  She is a pug and beagle combo, and contributes often to the blog.  This is HD video of her catching and throwing the mini tennis ball back to me.  She is the best.  Having a pet like a dog around sure boosts moral during tough times.  Doesn’t she look fly in the Seattle Seahawks jersey? It’s big, but she likes her gear baggy.  More fun productions at http://www.cameronmckirdy.com

Survival Bros brings you another great product review in HD video.  The ElliptiGO 11R is excellent for climbing mountains, and can go where any road bike can travel.  I was lucky enough to catch a professional competitor at the RV park to review the outdoor racing elliptical cycle.  Special thanks to the veteran that made time to share his experience with us all.  I’d love to hear what you have to say on this product.  Please comment if you own and ElliptiGO, or why you want one.  At $3,500 for the racing model, I don’t know that I’ll be getting an elliptical cycle, but one can dream.  Personally, I think this would be an excellent full body workout, and perfect for rehabilitation from an injury.  It’s comfortable, smooth, but kind of heavy at 39 pounds.  I will have to schedule a test ride at a dealer near me soon.  Watch out Portland!

Survival Bros gives you a tour of the 1986 Volkswagon Vanagon, and discusses van dwelling.  I use the Coast Products TX100 LED flashlight to show you how dark the windows are now with tint and black vinyl covering them.  Look at the other gear I use and how, including my Kelty Recluse 2.5 insulated sleeping pad.  You have to have some kind of mat to lay on to be comfortable camping.

I’ve been doing a great job of staying clear of local police.  I continue to camp on private property with permission from the owner, or legally at camp grounds.  Plus, by staying at designated rest areas, the cops can’t charge me with overnight camping.  The police have better things to do anyways, like uphold their oath to The Constitution, and keep the peace.  We know law enforcement is big fans of our emergency preparedness blog, so thanks for visiting!  More adventures from the road soon.

 Follow your instincts and win at life!

I love game shows.  I’ve always wanted to host one, or play others on TV.  A new program called Let’s Ask America gave me the chance to claim $50,000.  Using a webcam and Skype I played from my apartment, and represented for my city of Seaside, Oregon.  The episode I starred in aired on my 30th birthday.  It was the best gift ever.  I dominated the competition, and maintained a lead the entire game.  One by one I picked off the challengers.  I attribute all of my success to following my instincts.  I went with my gut.  Even though we were playing before a live studio audience in Hollywood, I kept my cool.  I racked up $6,600 heading into the final question.  I decided to bank $5k, and risk $1,600 which could be doubled.  I guessed the correct answer and screamed in joy.   My total winnings ended up being $8,200!  The crowd went wild, and I ran my mouth.  The host Kevin Pereira asked what I would do with the money and I said, “Well Kev, shout out to William Blake and da Vinci, but I think I’m the greatest artist of all time.  So I’m going to buy some Art supplies, and get my ideas out there.”  The Daily Astorian wrote an article on my victory.  Here’s the two clips the show has uploaded on their YouTube channel.

In this HD video Survival Bros shoots a Glock 19 with a KKM precision barrel, and a 17 round Glock magazine.  Tactical Gypsy was practicing trigger control, and getting in range time.  Good technique huh?  It sure is fun blasting steel targets, but glass bottles are still my favorite.  Please subscribe, like, and comment.  Oh, and participate in this poll to see the results of our question.  Stay tuned.  Thanks for visiting the blog.

This week Survival Bros went hiking in the woods near Cannon Beach, Oregon to kill and eat a bunny.  We saw, but didn’t catch the animal, so we explored the forest near logging roads.  To my shock we stumbled upon a massive survival shelter made from tarps, logs, cordage, and more.  There was even a 4-person tent inside, and the shack had a clean tarp floor.  The place was loaded with camping gear, and everything you’d need to be self-sufficient in the outdoors for a long time.  Watch the HD video to see how it was built, and what’s stored on the site.  Join the Survival Bros community on YouTube, and SUBSCRIBE TODAY!  It’s free of charge.  

 

Best Tarp Shelter in Woods

I’m always challenging myself.  That’s why I decided hiking Saddle Mountain in Oregon on consecutive days would be a hardcore mission.  I camped out a night, took photos, cooked, and rested in the VW Vanagon often.  Besides achieving my goal, and reaching the summit back to back, I also met some cool people.  There’s so many beautiful girls from Portland that make this day hike, it’s ridiculous.  I gave them all a hard time about being tourists.  I’m from Seaside, a local, and don’t look so out of place.  

Take a look at the picture galleries I created for each day.  The wildflowers were exploding, and made the hike much more pleasant.  Plus, they gave me a chance to stop, breath, stretch, and take in their sweetness.  I also spent time creating a video of Humbug Mountain.  It offers a marvelous view point, and is only .2 miles off the main Saddle Mountain trail.  So are you up for the Survival Bros challenge?  Can you hike to the summit twice in two days, or maybe twice in one day?  Somebody will take me up on this.  Let us know.  Good luck!  Tons more soon, only on Survival Bros.
