I love meeting new friends at Terwilliger aka Cougar Hot Spring in Oregon.  It’s located in the Willamette National Forest, East of Eugene near the McKenzie River.  The cost is $6 for one day pass, or $60 annually per person.  You’ll take a moderate walk 1/2 a mile in from the parking lot, before getting to the meditative area.  Accommodations include a covered changing area, and two outdoor restrooms.  Keep in mind this is a day use area only.  You could face a fat fine if you’re not in the parking lot when darkness falls.

Along the creek skirting the blue pools, you can pull clay from Earth.  People paw the hillside.  Digging.  Nude (clothing optional).  We pass the clay globs around, and apply the potter’s mask to our face and body.  Working the raw material into pores, letting it dry on skin.  This pulls the toxins out.  Wash off in the scorching, lithium-blessed waters.   Exfoliated to your essence.

I was gifted tree resin fit for a King today.  Pictured is a fat handful of Frankincense and Myrrh gum bled from a plant.  My buddy Gypsy Hugh got the aromatic harvest burning on a hot hookah charcoal.  Next, we place the purifying fragrance in my 1986 Volkswagen Vanagon.  The pleasant odor filled my bus with smoke, and the scent should linger for days.  It smells like incense, only more pure, and natural to me.  It was a kind gesture to hot box my vehicle like that, and very appropriate on Christmas Day.  Enjoy the pictures below.  I’d never seen these hardened resins in person, called tears.

Cameron McKirdy of Survival Bros gets naked, and films the Terwilliger Hot Springs near Cougar Reservoir in Oregon by Blue River.  Check out the four natural pools, and the wooden structures.  The top pool is now under construction.  The natural cave, which was a sauna, and the source of the hot springs is being remodeled by experts.  They want it to remain as natural looking as possible.  Word on the street is that the first pool will reopen as soon as it’s safe, and stable.

skin ointment“It rubs the lotion on its skin.  It does this whenever it is told.” – The Silence of the Lambs

Following my recent bike accident, I’ve used a few ointments to heal my skin, and relieve minor aches and pains.  Mostly I’m trying to minimize scaring.  I have enough, and bright pink isn’t a good color on me.

I’m covered in purple and green bruises.  For sore muscles I’m using Tiger Balm Red Extra Strength.  This pain relieving ointment really does work, so I don’t need to take any pills.  It helps my muscles relax, so I can go about my business.  Plus, the potent menthol smell is soothing.  A little dab of this stuff goes a long way.  Try it out.

To heal my road rash and cuts I’m using Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil Skin Ointment.  I got it from my local health food store for $7.99.  It’s a good buy because it is blended with natural oils enriched with Vitamin E, and Lavender Oil.  I love this product.  It is fragrance/dye free too.  This product stays on my skin, and prevents my sexy scabs from falling off early.  Tea Tree oil heals dry, chapped skin quickly.

Finally, I’ve been using organic 100% Hawaiian Moon Aloe.  You can use this cream topically for many things, from sore muscles, to chapped lips.  Aloe Vera is a miracle worker.  It hydrates deep into skin.  According to their website, “natural Aloe Vera contains six antiseptic agents that fight infection;  three analgesics to reduce pain and at least three anti-inflammatory agents.”  I also drink Aloe Vera juice, and water regularly to help with digestion. 

These three products are dynamic.  See what they can do for you.  Thanks for visiting Survival Bros.  Your likes, comments, and shares are greatly appreciated.  It helps build this emergency preparedness community.  Peace.
