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.

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!

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.

Survival Bros smashes the screen of a cellphone with a new COAST Products F611 Tactical Field blade. ¬†It was total destruction! ¬†The carbide tip can also muscle through regular glass,¬†Plexiglas, and plastic. ¬†It’s a¬†sturdy¬†knife, and I usually have it handy at the bottom of my backpack, just in case. ¬†The F611 is a solid¬†tool for camping, because it can help you process wood for a fire, or even when creating an emergency shelter. ¬†You’ll like working with it, and it’s¬†guaranteed¬†by COAST.

A budget survival knife worth considering

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. ¬†
