From Cam!

Watch Survival Bros open packs of Basketball Cards. These are 2018-19 Panini sports cards from WalMart. Each “Hanger” box was $9.98. It was a good investment of money personally, because I happened to get what I wanted, and was prepared to preserve it in protective cases. Plus, I never risk more cash than I can afford to lose. I was happy to score a LeBron, Trae Young Rookie, and a Kevin Durant Jersey insert.

I’ve been collecting baseball and basketball stars since Childhood! I know how to value, and trade this asset class. Comment if you collect.

Showing you gear I used to endure a cold night in Oregon. I forgot my sleeping bag at a friend’s house, so I had to get by with only an emergency, and wool blanket. It was close to 40 degrees outside in the morning when I started the van. I got up by 5 AM, to get my vehicle ready for the road again. You don’t want all of your boxes and tubs dumping over on corners. The struggle is real on Survival Bros.

Cam’s Preparedness Advice: Make sure you have a barrier or two between you and the ground (or metal auto floor). Then wrap up in layers, with an emergency mylar blanket around yourself! Thanks for the invention Astronauts. Also, huddle up with a friend if you can overnight, and keep moving if you get really cold. Well, I survived to fight more today…Next stop, free coffee in town! #urban #scavenging

Cameron McKirdy produced a new #EDC or Everyday Carry video update!  Check out the latest gear Survival Bros uses to stay safe, and be prepared for emergency situations.  Many products have multiple uses.  For example, you could use the headphone wires as cordage to keep something together.  HD video filmed with the new GoPro Hero7 Black camera.  It’s just OK.  The lens fogged up from the body heat coming off of my hand.  I thought this video was ruined, but I’m happy with the post.  Making YouTube videos is tough, but rewarding.

Fake News Challenges Cam The Cuddler:

I recently drove my Mustang to Portland, Oregon to demonstrate my survival tactics to a “reporter” and photographer with Willamette Week.  It’s a tabloid, and I shouldn’t have trusted them to get my story correct.  The nameless reporter didn’t use a voice recorder, and managed to misquote me.  The entire article is snarky, and designed to discredit me. Instead, YouTube views are going through the roof!  

Here’s the “story,” from wweek.com.  I did NOT say the line about killing.  I was saying that there may be violence in the streets a few days after supplies run out, and it got twisted into, “there will be killing for five days.”  That makes no sense.  It was careless reporting, intentionally.  They should give back their Pulitzer prize they won so long ago.  Reporters better watch how they handle me.  Good luck getting an interview now.  You better have some credibility, and be a positive person if you’re gonna approach me for a story.

Watch the latest thrifting haul score below.  This could be my most profitable purchase ever:

I quit my job.  I’ve been working at a GNC, but it’s an unhealthy work environment.  The florescent lighting was unbearably bright and annoying.  The frequency is harmful.  Plus, I was surrounded by a Wi-Fi signal, that I’m sensitive to.  All of us should be aware of our surroundings, and be in an environment that is as natural as possible. 

Once the weather got nice, and the Sun came out, the customers stopped coming in.  They were getting Vitamin D, and fresh air like I should be doing.  So that bothered me.  I don’t want to develop varicose veins from standing or sitting too much either.  Be careful with that my friends.  They sure do recall a bunch of products too!

I’m now selling caches.  Maybe you’ve seen me on VICELAND’s Abandoned Ep. 5 “Nuclear Waste” with skater Rick McCrank.  If you want me to build one for you, just send $75 to me on PayPal here.  You’ll get tons of cool items, and lots of value.  I will include treasure from my adventures, such as amazing thrift store finds and practical everyday items.   Look out for a video about a mystery cache soon.  Here’s a practical cache I put together recently:

The struggle is real.  On a recent road trip to Terwilliger aka Cougar hot spring East of Eugene, I hit a pot hole in the dark and cracked my oil pan.  I have a 1999 Mustang, with a severe leak, so I’m not driving right now.  I’m back on foot patrol, and catching buses, as my survival mountain bike was recently stolen also.  Pray that I can travel again soon, and get it fixed properly on the cheap.  A mechanic wants $650 to do the job, but I have a buddy in mind to help for way less cash.  It may take 6 hours of labor, as the engine needs to be lifted and cradled.  At least this doesn’t appear to be the end of my ride on the black stallion.

Bug Out Bag and Bicycle – Winter Camping Gear Setup

Dear Survival Journal,

I got a way late start.  Was also considering busing to the warming center in Astoria, OR.  That’s smart. 

Hiking 7 miles ain’t.  But I was determined to bog through the uphill swamp: half in the dark.  I got turned around at one point where trees fell over the path.  I also slipped once, but rehearsed in my head what to do.  I threw my 1 gallon water jug, and braced myself.  Yup, I carried a heavy water container from Ave. U to The Hiker Cabins on Tillamook Head.  My shoulders and arms are torn up.  My 110 liter Kelty backpack had to be 70 pounds.  

Plus, I was running on a bum sprained ankle…wore a too tight brace…My left shoulder hurt the most.  It was so tight.  But I had an indica BHO cartridge in my vape pen to finish off.  It was charging in my bag on the hike with a portable power bank charger.  I brought too much stuff.  Like 6 pairs of socks, an umbrella, a dud smoke grenade, and a giant tarp.  It’s 11am – dark at 4:25pm.  So cold.  My hands are numb.

Survival Bros Founder Cam and blogger Kelvin cover essential gear stored in the trunk of a reliable vehicle in case of a disaster.  We both live on the Oregon Coast, and are actively preparing for a tsunami to wipe out our hometown of Seaside, #OR  What do you think this American #prepper has left out?  My YouTube subscribers think he needs more water, a BB gun, and a big fixed blade knife for extra protection.  However, I can tell you, this guy has dug his own well on his family’s property.  So, he meets the one gallon per day, per person quota.  Kelvin also has another backup vehicle that is expertly maintained, and fast – a Dodge Stealth.
