Cameron McKirdy on Movie Set

I’ve been sick for 7 Days with Norovirus!  #norovirus  Did you get me sick?  Ain’t nothing stopping this one.  I had stomach cramps, and more.  I took digestive enzymes with ginger and garlic root, hoping to feel better.  That was a good start to my slow recovery, but on a budget you know I had to swing some other things.  So I hit Dollar Tree for Alka-Seltzer Plus.  Between herbs, probiotics, root powders, enzymes, and other various free samples from health food stores…I have finally healed from this illness!  How do I know?  Solid poops.  Victory has never smelled so regular.

Tips: Stay stockpiled on Medicine you use.  You’ll want everything from Anti-Diarrheal to fever reducing Aspirin.  Research Chinese Herbology for natural remedies.  Combine traditional cures, with modern formulas.  Also, eat solid foods like crackers to help settle your stomach, and absorb stomach acid.  Follow these Survival Bros Tips for a speedy recovery.  Of course, go to a hospital and see your Doctor if you have health insurance coverage.  People die every year from this Virus, and there isn’t a vaccine to save you.  Prevent illness by reducing stress, getting Vitamin D through the Sun or supplementation, and resting up.  Finally, drink plenty of water, and consume electrolytes.  This will help with muscles aches and dehydration, which is another symptom of Norovirus infection.  Best wishes from Survival Bros.

Mutating Norovirus in Cameron’s Belly!!!

Out of nowhere, my VW Bus is struggling to start.  Everything electrical flickers.  The radio cuts out.  The engine sputters.  Plus, the battery and OXS (oxygen sensor) light came on.  I called Avery’s Air-Cooled in Kelso, WA and they helped me diagnose the problem over the phone.  We figured the issue was a faulty voltage regulator.  Mechanics Jason and Kelly had a $40 Bosch part, and installed the unit for only $29.  But before I got fixed up and back on the road, I was parked on the shoulder of Highway 101, waiting for Classic Towing to get me to another state – Washington.  Thank God for AAA.  I’m on the Premier towing package.  Nothing but the best for my baby.  Funny that I broke down on the way to the repair shop.

Avery’s Air-Cooled always hooks me up, and keeps my bill low.  And if you have a Volkswagen, chances are they will have the part you need in stock.  Call them to order something at (360) 425-1119  Here’s their website too!   http://www.averysaircooled.com/  I will have to shoot some HD video there soon.  They have tow truck loads of vintage bugs, buses, and beyond.  And if you hang out long enough, you’ll get to see a traveling Art Show as the graffiti passes on the nearby train tracks.

Today I met up with an old friend interested in trading pocket knifes, for my antique wooden chest. I’ve been packing this cool, big box around for years, but felt like swapping it out for smaller items I can potentially trade or sell later.

I got this ornate chest in Tigard, OR at a St. Vincent De Pauls for $40 or so. I was going to restore it, but liked the rough, vintage look, and couldn’t bring myself to refinish the wood. I never cleaned the tin exterior either. It made a great shoe box for awhile, but I had my eye on a stash of Swiss Army knives my buddy acquired from an estate sale. We are both hustlers, so I felt like meeting to get some deals going.

I picked these 18 multitools out of my friend’s collection. I will end up putting a few in small emergency caches to be buried. Some will be gifts, and others I will use for odd jobs. A couple have lights built in too. It felt good to trade for items that won’t be a burden to move. I’m always traveling, so bulk is bad. I will do more deals with this contact, and the possibilities are endless with online networking. Don’t miss out. Be social.
