US Forest Service Photo of Terwilliger Fire

Welcome to #Survival #Bros. Unfortunately, I have sad news to share with you about Oregon’s latest forest fires. Visit this blog daily for updates on this PNW emergency. Here’s what you need to know:

Cougar Hot Spring is closed for the rest of 2018. It may not open to the public for a year or two. A careless man started the fire there near the trail. 20 people or so escaped the flames. Noboby was hurt then, but later in the week a firefighter was struck by a car while crossing the road in the town of Rainbow, OR.

Here’s #news clips from sources including KEZI in Eugene:

Personal Note: As many readers may know, I lived in these woods. Over the course of four months I managed Cougar Crossing Campground, and worked at Terwilliger Hot Spring. It was paradise. I soaked in the pools alone at sunrise for weeks. Naked. Coffee. It was my home. And now the forest won’t ever be the same. I wish I was there when the fire started. I would have thrown myself on it. I’m grieving. Much of earth is experiencing environmental traumas. Please pray for Our Land, and the people sacrificing to protect her.

Respect FIRE! 🔥

Recently The Police terrorized my hometown of Seaside, Oregon (article) by setting off the emergency warning system.  This spread #fakenews to citizens, proclaiming that a tsunami wave would hit the city in four hours. It was a false alarm. (KGW Video)

This was similar to the incorrect incoming ballistic missile alert issued in Hawaii, which had everyone panicking and taking precautions…Parents were putting children in storm drains.

These two major mistakes prove there is no authority on anything, and officials don’t exist. Public figures care less about you, and your safety than you do. It’s a paycheck for them. So make your own survival kits.

How can you trust the government when they can’t even get it right when there’s no disaster? Officials won’t be there for you during an emergency. You need your own training, plan, team, and gear to adapt and overcome. Hawaiians had no idea what was really happening for 38 excruciating minutes. They were led to believe they were all about to die, and there was nothing they could do about it. No tips. Just threats.

People are pushing the wrong buttons alright. Buttons they don’t have the training to use properly, or the desire to carefully watch over. Heads should roll in these public offices. But they will blame funding, and take more money from you instead. You can’t rely on the government for anything but failures, without accountability.

I am a bell ringer.  Salvation Army claims they are, “doing the most good.”  That may be true.  The donations collected stay in the community where they were raised.  This helps the less fortunate, so for example, senior citizens can get the prescription pills they need.  More hungry are feed too, and shelter may be provided for the homeless.

I volunteered for a seven hour bell ringing session.  It was a true experience, unlike anything I’ve ever done.  At first, I thought hearing the bell clamor would be torture, but I didn’t even use my headphones for music, or earplugs to drown out the noise.  I thought it would be rude, and maybe I’d miss something that someone said.  I received hundreds of bright season’s greetings from Wal-Mart shoppers.  People smiled, told me to stay warm, and mostly to have a Merry Christmas.  I also had guests ask me to look after their bikes while they shopped, keep an eye on where their friend parked the car, and magically recall the location of the person they came in with.  It was funny though, and I got to do some people watching.  Looking into people’s shopping carts is like glimpsing into their homes.  I felt like a Peeping Tom, but it passed the time.  Most people were there to buy massive amounts of toilet paper, cat litter, or cat toys.  I’m not one to judge, but it was wild to see all the people wearing Mossy Oak (or real tree) camouflage clothing.  It was like half the shoppers just got done duck hunting.  The other half wore pajamas, slippers, or hideous Christmas sweaters, like they were trying to be a joke.  God bless them.

Seriously though, being a bell ringer was one of the most spiritually rewarding opportunities I’ve ever taken.  My favorite moments were seeing all the children excited to give.  They took a minute or two to figure out how to make the dollars fit into the pot’s slot, but they were so happy, and most skipped away holding their parent’s hand.  My bell was fascinating too.  I let one girl ring it, the others stared at me like I was a dinosaur.  I won’t forget all the people that took a moment, and the change from their pocket, and trusted it would go to a person who needed it more.  I saw a few $20’s go in, but maybe a gold coin slipped in there.  I will be back in front of a store today.  Please help others this holiday season, and volunteer in your community in 2014.  Bring peace to Earth.

The first nasty storm of the season is underway on the Oregon Coast.  The wind is bending trees, and flooding is a possibility.  I’m surprised the power is still on.  Seaside, OR is expected to have gusts up to 80 miles per hour!  Have a survival kit together, and an emergency plan for your family.  Here’s a checklist of supplies to gather just in case of a disaster.

– Water (A gallon per person per day for a minimum of 3 days.)

– Fuel AKA gas for cooking, and dry wood for fire

– Food (Stores could close for days without electricity.  Don’t buy perishable goods that need to be refrigerated.  Think fruit.)

– Candles

– Flashlights and headlamps with fresh batteries

– Blankets

– Shelter (It’s probably a good idea to stay inside, so you don’t get wet and sick.)

– Emergency Weather Radio

– Toys for kids, and treats for pets, because they will be scared in a super storm

– First Aid

– Gas (Fill up your vehicle in case there’s a rush for fuel, and you can’t get some later.)

– Books (Maybe ones on emergency planning.  We don’t want you to lose your mind without TV.)

– Whistle to signal for help

– Multi-tool and Wrench to turn off water, etc.

– Moist wipes, and garbage bags for sanitation and personal hygiene

– Local maps

– Manual Can Opener

– Generator and/or solar charger for electrical devices

– Cash/Silver/Barter Items

– Rain Gear/Warm clothes

– Prescription Medications

– Lighter and waterproof matches

– Paper and Pen for notes, and more checklists

– Communications: Cell Phones with chargers, and two-way radios

With all or most of these things you should be good to go, and ready for a super storm bringing flooding.  If you can think of any other handy items, please leave your suggestions in the comment section.  Thanks, and wish us Oregonians good luck this weekend.  It’s
going to be a wild one.  Peace and love from Survival Bros.

There’s no flooding on Highway 101 right now, but high tide isn’t until this evening.
