Let me start by saying Happy Holidays! I wish you the best, and hope you give more than you get. Having said that, my fam was in town for Thanksgiving, and Black Friday shopping/trampling. Before my Dad and I set out to hike near Mount St. Helens, they invited me into their hotel for a free deluxe continental breakfast. The feast was on.
The hotel had waffles to make, yogurt, fruit, hash browns, juice, coffee, cereal, eggs, sausage, everything! I can’t say I’ve ever sneaked into a hotel for a free breakfast (before this), but I would if I was hungry. However, when I am a legit guest I do take goodies for the road. Trust me, my pockets get filled with honey packets, peanut butter, whatever. My brother use to creep into fine hotels in Eugene about twice a month to get his fill before class. Andrew blogged about it here on Survival Bros. It’s funny. But I’m not advising you to steal, just sharing a survival tactic for if you’re about to die and need food energy.
You can see in the HD video above I loaded up on the complementary grub, and took it back to their room. I scarfed it, and sipped dank coffee. Then I scoured for other freebies like shampoo, soap, packaged coffee, plus sugars, creamers, straws, napkins, and a new roll of toilet paper. It’s not much, but it will help me get through another day. Being a scavenger is key to survival. Work on that skill just in case. Please visit here regularly. I will be blogging about my 10 mile Mt. St. Helens hike soon. Take care of yourself, and each other. And question authority!
