By Cam and “Big Schlink” for you!

Survival Bros tours a disgusting Ford cargo van worth fixing up. Look inside this old vehicle, and comment. Can you believe there’s a rocking horse inside?  We didn’t know, because we didn’t look inside before purchasing this ride.  There’s no glamorizing #vanlife on our YouTube Channel.  Some like it real!  Keep supporting your brothers.

More everyday preparedness videos being uploaded soon to our channel. Please SUBSCRIBE, and SHARE this post with your friends.

Survival Bros takes a huge excavator on a crazy farm ride.  Watch us play with a giant destruction machine. We hit a trailer, smash concrete, play with a bucket, cross a creek, remove a tree, and dig in the garden! Subscribe on YouTube for more fun videos with friends.

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.

What’s your side hustle?

From Cam The Cuddler of CuddleLife.com

Like trading for stuff without using money? Would you like to get rid of some extra junk? Put a “Take One, Leave One” blanket in a public area like I did. Watch the new HD #survivalbros video, then read more about this fun Art project below.

This project was a success! Hundreds of people stopped, and contributed to “The Art Show”. I call it a free trading platform, or an exchange, which I facilitated, and curated. It encouraged beachcombers to give, and consider the value of their trading item. Sure some people took and didn’t leave, or left and didn’t take. A few kids picked up fond objects like pieces of shells, or rocks, and got the toy they wanted. The children would not be denied, and many made multiple trades, which I found amusing.

For the most part, I stayed out of it, and watched the developments from a nearby bench. I straightened it up a few times, and threw away trash. I will say it’s annoying when people leave their business card, and take a cool item, but I didn’t intervene. The Take One, Leave One project had a life of it’s own…

The sweetest moment happened when a kid traded his football for earrings, and quickly gave them to his mother. No hesitation. Then he grabbed a stuffed animal, and got a toy for himself. All in a matter of 30 seconds! Ha. The children making multiple trades cracked me up. They saw no limits to the possible trades. However, some parents wouldn’t even take time to explain this concept, or stop to let their kids even look at the show on the Promenade. They said things like, “I will get you a new toy from the store instead.” Fine. Buy everything then, ya Trendy.

This concept blew minds. People had never seen this before. It got people thinking, which is good. Proving, small ideas in tiny spaces can leave a big, and unexpected impact. However, I have set this up before in a busy area: read Part One HERE!!!

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!

Hanging out at “Surfer’s Parking Lot” near The Cove in Seaside, Oregon. Checking the wave conditions and people watching along the coast.

Chill out on the North Fork of the McKenzie River with #SurvivalBros and Papilio Oregonius butterflies.  This is the official insect of Oregon State.  Filmed near Cougar Hot Spring, in the Willamette National Forest.  SUBSCRIBE NOW ON YOUTUBE FOR MORE!  

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.

Cameron McKirdy did this:

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.
