Survival Bros Founder Cam and blogger Kelvin cover essential gear stored in the trunk of a reliable vehicle in case of a disaster.  We both live on the Oregon Coast, and are actively preparing for a tsunami to wipe out our hometown of Seaside, #OR  What do you think this American #prepper has left out?  My YouTube subscribers think he needs more water, a BB gun, and a big fixed blade knife for extra protection.  However, I can tell you, this guy has dug his own well on his family’s property.  So, he meets the one gallon per day, per person quota.  Kelvin also has another backup vehicle that is expertly maintained, and fast – a Dodge Stealth.

Survival Bros shows you exactly how to get FREE CLOTHING IN LIFE!  Click on the HD YouTube video above for the exact mission details.  All you have to do is visit your local painting supply company store, and request a complimentary painter’s shirt or even a hoodie.  Every painter needs a shirt, preferably one with sleeves to protect themselves from paint over spray, and drips.  Trust me, I’ve painted houses and after pulling globs of latex out of my chest hair, a barrier of soft, breathable protection is a must.

It’s simple: Request swag (politely), get gear.  Try this method of acquiring, and comment on the blog post here if you have any luck.  It’s worked every time for me when I need fresh clothes to wear, and there’s more than one paint shop to pick from.  

I got another free shirt, this time from Rodda Paint in McMinnville, Oregon by asking…

More proof you can do this too.

This week I got up early and drove the Volkswagen Vanagon out to the legendary Goodwill Outlet near the Portland International Airport, or PDX.  I slept nearby, for free, in the Shari’s Resturant parking lot.  As a hustler, I knew I had to get to Goodwill before the place opens up at 8 AM.  I had my smartphone on me, charged, to scan barcodes, and research items online.  I used the eBay, and Amazon applications for quick access to information.

It was a feeding frenzy inside.  No time to shoot video when you’re trying to make money.  Goodwill charges only $1.67 per pound for most anything, besides CDs, DVDs, and stuff in the display case, as far as I know.  At the end, you roll your shopping cart onto a scale, like weighing your vehicle at a garbage dump.  You’ll see my thrifting haul in the HD Survival Bros video below.  I had to dig threw a bunch of trash to find anything acceptable for potential reselling, and keeping.  You will get your hands dirty.  Try to avoid piss blankets, and scan everything with your eyes to make less work for yourself.  My strategies netted me a Phillips Norelco electric razor, Wii video game, Levis flannel shirt, wall charger, scarf, two GPS units by Garmin and Magellen, fanny back for ultralight backpacking, and a Nike Max Air backpack.  I think I did excellent considering I spent just $7.44.

Play ball with the Survival Bros mascot Mocha The Puggle.  She is a pug and beagle combo, and contributes often to the blog.  This is HD video of her catching and throwing the mini tennis ball back to me.  She is the best.  Having a pet like a dog around sure boosts moral during tough times.  Doesn’t she look fly in the Seattle Seahawks jersey? It’s big, but she likes her gear baggy.  More fun productions at http://www.cameronmckirdy.com

Horns are hot in PDX right now! That’s what I heard from a friend, so when I saw a pair at a pawn shop in my hood, I snagged them. This post is about trading for goodies, and trying to hustle at clothing resale shops in Portland, OR.

First, let me tell you about these horns. I wanted them, so I tried to find something I didn’t want, of some value, to swap at the pawn shop. I traded a motorcycle jacket, iPod shuffle, and $20 for the pointy pair. Once acquired, I drove to Portlandia to make a deal. My homie had athletic shorts for me, and desperately wanted a set of horns to accent her fashionable pad. She loved them, mounting them on her wall above the couch. I bet they stay there collecting dust until she can find something better to trade for. That’s her business. I was pumped on the gear I got, and am wearing as I blog now. It was a fun, and solid trade for all.

I also mobbed to a few clothing resale shops where you can buy, sell, and trade. The Red Light Clothing Exchange on Hawthorne Blvd was full of wacky, tacky, junk. Apparently my clothing was too good to accept. They want crap, not new threads. I should have brought in my ripped, and stained stuff instead, and thrown it in the mud before. And I’m not one to judge, but their use of a B.O. air freshener wasn’t appreciated. The lady evaluating my clothing was a snob. She looked it all over quickly, and threw it back at me, saying “these aren’t for us.” That was it. No have a nice day. She walked away. I guess kindness isn’t trendy over there. Next.

Finally, I tried my luck with Buffalo Exchange on W Burnside St. I’ve dealt with them in the past, and sold some Nike Oregon Duck gear for a little. They had better looking women, and clothing there. I perused. They offered me $15 in trade, or $10 and some change cash for three shirts. I took the money and ran. I knew I wouldn’t get offered much at these resale places, but I thought it would be interesting to try. A learning experience for sure. I’m better off donating old clothes, or selling it online, so I don’t have to waste time and $. Nothing sucks more than paying $5 for parking every spot you go to in Portland. You should never have to pay to park. But I’m an idealist.
