People need physical touch from others.  Babies must have attention, and contact, or they will die.  So LOVE, and CUDDLING, ARE SURVIVAL ISSUES.

After living out of my van in the woods for months while managing a campground and hot spring, I found myself wanting more non-sexual, platonic contact with others.  I sought out more human touch, including cuddling from friends and family, and put in extra snuggle time.  Later I’d visit Samantha Hess at her famous cuddle cafe on:

1015 E Burnside St.
Portland, OR 97214

Cuddle Up To Me is a safe and comfortable place where you can go to feel respected, appreciated, and worthy.  When I first saw Samantha Hess, I was all hopped up on coffee, hadn’t eaten, and had all these big ideas for how I could help her cuddling business.  Well, I eventually chilled out, and opened up to her.  We shared our stories during our consultation. After processing, I wished to cuddle in her fantastic Universe themed space room.  Snuggling Sam was very relaxing.  Focusing on my breath, and the sensations of compassionate touch, it was simple to be now.  Sam guided me into several silly sounding poses like: Mama Bear, Side Pocket, and Lazy Spoon.  Book an appointment with a Certified Cuddler for more details.  Cuddling with no sexual intentions is one experience we should all have regularly.  I felt wonderful for weeks.

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!

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.

I hit the road for work. A new friend took me in. This is a couch surfing tale.

20120922-140533.jpg
That was the scene this morning! We got down. My bro cooked potatoes with bacon fat, and served eggs just how I like them. I added sour cream, a cheese blend, and extra smoky chipotle powder. I’m sure he threw in other secret ingredients, but I didn’t dare ask what. At the table, his 3-year-old daughter lectured us on how friends share.

My host family has been very good to me. I had my pick of the couch, recliner, or air mattress. I went La-Z-Boy, and slept like a baby. That was until my alarm rang 3 hours earlier than I like for work. Then I had trouble when I started changing into my nice work clothes. After putting on my black jeans I realized I actually grabbed my Moms. They were restricting. That’s the first time I’ve had on girl clothes. I had to go casual and borrow a jacket. Smooth. Next time I will be more careful after doing laundry at my family’s house.

It’s awesome having friends I can count on when I need a place to crash. They offered. Why not? When couch surfing, it’s always a good idea to bring something to the table. I brought a small gift of thanks. I also meant to bring my hosts edible chanterelle mushrooms, but I left them at a buddy’s house and told him to keep em.

You can learn a lot from new people. Especially when they are transplants. We just have to find common ground. Happy couch surfing!!!

UPDATE: I’ve been doing more couch surfing. I recently traveled for a job, and worked as a tour guide for a cruise ship that came into The Port of Astoria. I took a bus load of tourists down the Oregon Coast to Cannon Beach and Seaside. I showed them the best spots for candy, like elephant ears, carmel apples, and salt water taffy. I had to take them to Norma’s in Seaside for their world famous clam chowder. I told them it goes well with beer from Fort George called Vortex IPA. Anyways, that was one of my odd jobs recently.

Tonight I’m filming Mixed Martial Arts fights at the Astoria Fairgrounds. Many of my friends will be battling in the cage. I love filming events like this. It’s going to be nuts. And it’s a full moon, so anything can happen.

Right now I’m at a friends getting ready to go. He is fueling us up with an epic breakfast spread. Mac is making two types of pancakes! Potato pancakes with green onions to go with chorizo and sour cream, and maple bacon cakes with bits infused into the batter. He also stirred up a maple syrup with butter and peanut butter. I can hear the sizzling now! My belly is so empty. I will post a picture of the complete feast here.

Entrepreneurs make money. They create $ out of nothing. They add value. They produce. This is the Survival Bros guide to hustling. It’s all about having multiple streams of income. Like a boss.

Even if you have a job, you can create rivers of cash that flow into your arms. You just have to be creative. True players have lots of ways of making money. One trick is making money off your hobbies. For example, if you like dogs, breed them. Put an ad in the paper, and get the word out about what you are offering the world.

When you’re not pimping pups, work on another way to make money easily, such as online. Set up an eBay store, or account on Etsy. Get your credibility up, and people will trust you enough to buy from you. Online is where it’s at. You don’t need a physical store, and you can sell to people across the globe 24 hours a day.

Another way to make money is through investments. Look at buying previous metals like silver, stocks, or something else interesting. Understand trends, research the markets, and soon you will be stacking dough. Start small at first. Buy that one thing that will pay you tomorrow. I learned about trends selling baseball cards as a kid. I invested in athletes that were young, and full of potential. Then I protected their sports cards, and held on long term to make a profit.

There’s infinite ways to make money. Most importantly, build your brand. Don’t waste your life being an employee, when you were meant to be the boss. Trust yourself, and get after it. Get money, and make it work for you. Be a hustler.
