Life revolves around where you poop.  And with few public restrooms, you’re forced into Civilization.  Go outside like a real human.  We challenge you to urinate, and defecate in nature responsibly.  

Hate on getting free stuff.  Makes sense.  You’re afraid to ask for what you want, and would rather pay to live at all costs.

The Universe provides food.  God’s grace is our self-sufficiency. #clamming #clams #oregon

Whip it out, and let it go!  Peeing on things is so much fun.

Cam lived in a few vans for over six years.  He knows all the tricks to survive #vanlife in the Pacific Northwest.

McKirdy managed Heaven.  He worked at Cougar Hot Spring for months while managing a campground.  You wouldn’t believe the stories in his Journal…COMING SOON to a the SB Blog.

Survival Bros tours a disgusting Ford cargo van worth fixing up. Look inside this old vehicle, and comment. Can you believe there’s a rocking horse inside?  We didn’t know, because we didn’t look inside before purchasing this ride.  There’s no glamorizing #vanlife on our YouTube Channel.  Some like it real!  Keep supporting your brothers.

More everyday preparedness videos being uploaded soon to our channel. Please SUBSCRIBE, and SHARE this post with your friends.

Ford E-150 Cargo Van

By Cam

Cameron McKirdy from Survival Bros gives you a tour of his vehicle, and explains why he uses the gear he has.  Living in a van allows him to be more free, and not answer to a Boss.  He can nap, or go thrifting when he wants to.  It’s a challenging lifestyle, but vandwelling can be done, if you’re creative, and easy-going.  #vanlife

Would you live in a van? You get to travel more, and save some money. Going places may help you meet new people, and get different perspectives.  Don’t be afraid to chat, and share with strangers.  Subscribe on YouTube, and follow us on Twitter! More posts soon.  Thanks for stopping by our blog.

Survival Bros combs The Woods, and identifies King Bolete, or Porcini Mushrooms in Oregon!  Hunted in the Clatsop County forest near the Pacific Ocean.  Cameron foraged, dried, and ate them for a meal off the land.  Dried fungi will last a very long time in your kit. Please share this Survival Bros video, and SUBSCRIBE on YouTube.  Many more Adventures coming Summer 2019…

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.

Hey Friend, 

It’s me.  Cam (The Cuddler).  I hope this blog post finds you well.   You won’t believe all of the Survival Bros News this month…Here’s stories from my travels, and camping.

First off, I trust you got through the 4th of July with all of your fingers.   I lit off a ton of fireworks.   All totally legal…I watched Seaside’s show from Gearhart, Oregon.  We had limited visibility will all of the smoke.  Everybody was lighting things on fire.  #USA  I couch surfed that night at a friend’s house.  I enjoy seeing how others live, and sharing what I have with them.

Next topic – Being a Professional Cuddler.   I’ve had much positive interest in my platonic touch service.   I provide cuddling sessions across America for donations.  I operate on a sliding scale of $25-$80 per hour, plus travel.  I’m open to trades as well.  My clients are caring, and brave for reaching out to me.  You can contact me at camthecuddler@gmail.com, or by adding “professionalcuddler” on Skype.  I offer free consultations online, in person, or over the phone.  Let’s snuggle.  I also read to people, and walk with them for companionship.   I love you all, and my work.  Thanks for the support.

Here’s the funny “FEE HUGS” t-shirt I made.  Send me $20 on PayPal with your size and I will make a version of my choice for you.  I’ve been designing handmade clothing for years.   

I just gave a stranger a ride home for $5.  She was a mysterious, and spiritual being with guidance to give.  The woman lead me into brief meditation with this card as a happiness blessing.  Say the manta out loud.  Practice it.  http://www.sgi-usa.org

Ouch!!!!  I broke my foot!  I found myself tenting on rocks, and while sleeping on my belly, I kicked the ground and broke at least one bone in my toe.   It’s been hurting for weeks.   It even formed a deep blister, long after the impact.  #SurvivalBros opened the infected wound with a sewing needle, and squeezed out the chunky, oozing puss with fingernails.   Hand sanitizer was put on it, and the injury is looking and feeling better.  Thank God for his weed.  Passed, instead of passing out.

Happy thought: I’ve been cooking food several times daily on an open campfire.  It’s the best eat’n.  I have devoured pounds of potatoes, carrots, onions, turnips, and meats with cheeses while camping in the #PNW

Scavenging —–>  I like to trade with people.   Ideas, trinkets, nuggets, etc.  However, finding treasure on my own is fun too.  Today I’m camping, and I enjoy browsing campsites after guests leave.  I found free firewood (still burning to start my own flame), and a new hatchet.  I had just traded the same people a football I found in a bush for 2 beers…I asked for a small amount of coffee in exchange, but they only spoke French and returned from their tent with cold booze.  My other neighbors hooked up free weed for three days.  Blueberry Cookies, and Gorilla Glue.  We gifted each other items randomly, like tea, a decorative tin, kids game, a glow stick, dry shampoo, water and beyond.  Say hi to your fellow tenters.  #goodpeople   

Excuse me while I list a locked iPhone on eBay for parts.  I got it at a charity thrift store, hoping it was unlocked and use able for an extra video camera.  No luck, but I did find another camera half off at Goodwill.  It’s a Canon , and is worth $100.  The battery died so I to have to track down a wall charger online.  I will get an extra battery at the same time. 

Collecting bottle cans – Survival Bros made a Mission of it recently and hunted down the redeemable limit of 144, a few times.   Making $20 with two people working the bottle return robot.  These 10 cent recycleables have provided extra gas money for traveling.  One can = one mile down the road in my Ford Mustang.  This frees me up to drive around more to thrift and resell clothing in town.  I made $70 one day this week flipping old clothing, much of which was free to me.  Example: My buddy moved and left me a green Pendleton Men’s jacket.  I sold it for cash (vs more in trade) to Buffalo Exchange for a third of the price they will ask, being $65.

Somebody took a dump in the hottub at the resort.   Thankfully I pay attention to my surroundings.  This isn’t the first time I’ve encountered poop swirling in a spa.  The sauna is out of order too, so I’ve been down by the river hunting crawfish to fry up on the campfire.  Look at the BBQ bacon ends I ate.

I’ve been making Survival Bros Emergency Preparedness Caches to store, and sell.   I can customize them to fit almost any budget.  Want one?  A stash of extras can be huge in a pinch.  Trust me.  New videos coming.  Seen this YouTube classic yet?  It’s of a basic cache, to give you ideas.  Join us on YouTube.  We have 6,665 Subscribers to our channel.

Hey Friends,

Cam coming at you from the beach in Oregon.  #Seaside  I’m so glad you’re here to share with me.  Thanks for all the thoughtful comments, and please remember to SUBSCRIBE ON YOUTUBE TO #SURVIVALBROS  Watch our 300+ videos at no cost.  We now have 6,399 subscribers, and growing.  Thanks for participating.  I love this community of #backpackers #healers #preppers #activists #nolabels 

It’s been a wild ride these past few years.  If you’ve been following my HD videos, I was #vandwelling for 2.5 years in my Volkswagen Vanagon.  I put many miles on her, riding the nugget from hot spring to couches, and cabins.  It’s a lifestyle I would go back to, but my survival situation has changed.

I bought a new van!  And it broke down.  Costing me a fortune.  Then I was on foot, and in a tent.  Winter hit.  I had challenges, and the weather was nasty.  It was the worst I’ve ever seen it in the #PNW  Now I have a place to stay, a fast car, a part-time job, and an office to make more videos and #Art.  I am very #blessed and grateful.  

So here we are.  Standing strong in the chaos.  Better prepared.  

What do I want to do next?  Stay tuned.

Watch and learn how to get a free home, vehicle, or abandoned trailer like this one I found.  It was left on a back road in Oregon.  If someone doesn’t claim it by the posted time on the public notice, then it will be towed and impounded.  To get a free house, etc. just call the Sheriff and tell the police it’s yours now, and you will be taking responsibility of ownership.  

I could put this on a friend’s property, or pay only $35 per month to store it locally.  Decisions…Decisions…and here I am blogging about it.

Would you take a ditched trailer like this project?  How fun would it be to make it how you wanted?  Subscribe to #survivalbros on YouTube, and enter your email on the top left side of the homepage of http://www.SurvivalBros.com  #Hugs
