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

Attention my fellow¬†Survival Bros: Check our my new vehicle for car camping! ¬†The old 2.1 Liter Volkswagen Vanagon has been sold to a hippie. ¬†This 1994 Chevrolet G-20 van cost $2,000, and has 136,000 miles on it. ¬†I’m hopeful that the Chevy will be much more reliable than the 1986 VW bus I lived in for nearly 2.5 years! ¬†I must have had AAA tow my last ride 13 times to a mechanic or home.

#SurvivalBros is creating a new video series on vandwelling in this RV. ¬†You’re gonna want to see every episode of my travels. ¬†I’m bursting with information, and tips to share about living on the road. ¬†Share this vlog and blog post with friends into #vandwelling ¬† Subscribe today on YouTube HERE!

Chill out on the North Fork of the McKenzie River with #SurvivalBros and Papilio Oregonius butterflies.  This is the official insect of Oregon State.  Filmed near Cougar Hot Spring, in the Willamette National Forest.  SUBSCRIBE NOW ON YOUTUBE FOR MORE!  

What a spectacular day this was by the water. ¬†The sun scorched my naked body. ¬†It burned getting into the 106 degree water later that evening at Terwilliger Hot Springs. ¬†I did dive headfirst into the crystal clear river. ¬†Exhilarating. ¬†However, do you have any idea how hard it is to hold your junk with one¬†hand? ¬†Just saying, it wasn’t staying put. ¬†Thankfully through the power of editing, the family jewels remained in safe keeping. ¬†

I ventured to this sacred spot two weeks earlier, and saw the same collection of butterflies! ¬†I counted 40. ¬†I’m amazed they were still there when I returned. ¬†My friends are posted up hard in heaven. ¬†They danced around me as I paid my respects. ¬†This area produces insanely large moths too, like this one I spotted heading into a shower last summer.

In these HD #survivalbros videos I source product, or pick stuff, to potentially resell at a profit.  I purchased nearly 27 pounds of Goodwill donations at 99 cents per lb in one day, as seen in the first vlog below.  Watch these guides to learn more about picking, aka hustling.  I chose a diverse range of merchandise, buying everything from purses to Nintendo Wii video games.  I think I scored on my thrifting haul adventure, but you  be the judge.  SUBSCRIBE TO SURVIVAL BROS ON YOUTUBE HERE to join the conversation.  Thanks for watching.

Cam found Minion Goggles at The Bins in Portland, Oregon

Pro Tips for  Shopping at The Goodwill Outlet Bins:

  1. Wear gloves. ¬†This way you can toss stuff, and protect your hands from sharp objects…
  2. Weigh your cart several times to see where your at, and to preview what you may spend.
  3. Take a chance on an item or two that you know nothing about.  It may prove to be a super find.

More advice coming in blog articles soon…..

Hustling isn’t for lazy people. ¬†You have to think on your feet, and react quickly. ¬†One must follow their heart, and instincts to get money. ¬†Buying and selling the goods you got takes skill too. ¬†Then you have to deliver on your promise to the customer in order to maintain your street cred. ¬†Do you have what it takes to be a hustler? ¬†I made this video to help others get ideas about reselling¬†their thrift shop finds,¬†not to simply to show off my abilities. ¬†But damn I’m good. ¬†No. ¬†Hustling, making a video on it, and articulating ideas in an article is not for the lazy. Good money is earned. ¬†My thoughts are free. ¬†Check out the picked profit breakdown below.

Total Value and Asking price on thrifting haul:

1. Price is Right Wii game + $20

2. Tiger Woods 08 game + $25

3. Baby Einstein DVDs + $20

4. Batman CD Player + $45 (SOLD!)

5. Starbucks Tumbler + $20

6. Lion King Disney Mug + $20

7. Sony Walkman Radio + $40

8. Octopus Ring + $20 = $210

*Spent only $19!

This week I did something wild! ¬†I pushed my limits, and enjoyed eight zip lines on the Oregon Coast in Warrenton. ¬†I’d never attempted anything like this adventure. ¬†It got my heart rate up, and made me scream to the top of my lungs.

Watch me zip down the fastest line there called Huckleberry on The Survival Bros YouTube Channel

What it’s like to jump from the top of the tower on an Extreme Zip Swing or Zwing with a 20 foot rope attached to the cable!

See my Bigfoot Sighting on Zip Line Over Water with Camera Drag

Enjoy a gallery of my photographs from my trip to High Life Adventures:

My tour group of eight people took around three hours to complete the course. ¬†We had two local, and friendly guides. ¬†They communicated with small radios attached to their harness. ¬†One guide would go first, then use a rope to gently bring them to a controlled stop. ¬†The female went last, and was responsible for securing us properly. ¬†You don’t have to walk much in between the routes. ¬†In fact, they have a 4×4 vehicle if you want to use it, or get spooked and need a ride back to the parking lot early.

Jumping from the observation tower is intense. ¬†There are three different lines from that point, on two levels. ¬†SPOILER ALERTS: You get a cookie and a juice box halfway through the tour, plus spring water. ¬†Soon they will have a wood stove operational for the brutal winter months, and a wind turbine on top. ¬†Also, be on the lookout for Sasquatch. ¬†I just saved you a heart attack, and/or a lawsuit. ¬†I threw a legit left jab to the face of the masked man, and nearly delivered a swift leg kick before realizing I wasn’t in danger. ¬†Fortunately, when he sneaks up, you’re still locked to the zip line, and can’t fully attack! ¬†

I would highly recommend going on this zip line tour. ¬†It costs $99, and you can also try THE ZWING, their extreme zip swing. ¬†I did, and got a high-visibility rubber bracelet as a souvenir. ¬†The add-on is $29 more, but worth it, if you can keep down your cookie. ¬†I was attached to a longer, 20-foot rope, and jumped off the side of the tower instead of from the middle like most of the group. ¬†So I flew 40 feet across, and then dropped towards the lake, on the 1200′ long cable. ¬†I screamed like Bigfoot, and was¬†definitely¬†the loudest in¬†the group. ¬†I look¬†forward¬†to zip lining again soon, and possibly filming even more. ¬†Honestly, this would be a hard hobby to master. ¬†The easiest way to stay facing forward is to hold your line towards the top of the connection. ¬†

Cameron McKirdy from Survival Bros shows you how to gather freebies at a motel. ¬†Embrace hoarding, and be the real prepper you can be. ¬†Not that I’d do it, but I bet you could walk into any hotel and¬†politely¬†ask for another¬†shampoo, soap, and coffee and you’d get hooked up without being questioned about what room you are staying in. ¬†Just saying. ¬†I’ve already put my freebies in Ziploc bags for storage. ¬†Happy prepping. ¬†Please SUBSCRIBE to Survival Bros on YouTube! ¬†Thank you.
