Hey Friend, 

It’s me.  Cam (The Cuddler).  I hope this blog post finds you well.   You won’t believe all of the Survival Bros News this month…Here’s stories from my travels, and camping.

First off, I trust you got through the 4th of July with all of your fingers.   I lit off a ton of fireworks.   All totally legal…I watched Seaside’s show from Gearhart, Oregon.  We had limited visibility will all of the smoke.  Everybody was lighting things on fire.  #USA  I couch surfed that night at a friend’s house.  I enjoy seeing how others live, and sharing what I have with them.

Next topic – Being a Professional Cuddler.   I’ve had much positive interest in my platonic touch service.   I provide cuddling sessions across America for donations.  I operate on a sliding scale of $25-$80 per hour, plus travel.  I’m open to trades as well.  My clients are caring, and brave for reaching out to me.  You can contact me at camthecuddler@gmail.com, or by adding “professionalcuddler” on Skype.  I offer free consultations online, in person, or over the phone.  Let’s snuggle.  I also read to people, and walk with them for companionship.   I love you all, and my work.  Thanks for the support.

Here’s the funny “FEE HUGS” t-shirt I made.  Send me $20 on PayPal with your size and I will make a version of my choice for you.  I’ve been designing handmade clothing for years.   

I just gave a stranger a ride home for $5.  She was a mysterious, and spiritual being with guidance to give.  The woman lead me into brief meditation with this card as a happiness blessing.  Say the manta out loud.  Practice it.  http://www.sgi-usa.org

Ouch!!!!  I broke my foot!  I found myself tenting on rocks, and while sleeping on my belly, I kicked the ground and broke at least one bone in my toe.   It’s been hurting for weeks.   It even formed a deep blister, long after the impact.  #SurvivalBros opened the infected wound with a sewing needle, and squeezed out the chunky, oozing puss with fingernails.   Hand sanitizer was put on it, and the injury is looking and feeling better.  Thank God for his weed.  Passed, instead of passing out.

Happy thought: I’ve been cooking food several times daily on an open campfire.  It’s the best eat’n.  I have devoured pounds of potatoes, carrots, onions, turnips, and meats with cheeses while camping in the #PNW

Scavenging —–>  I like to trade with people.   Ideas, trinkets, nuggets, etc.  However, finding treasure on my own is fun too.  Today I’m camping, and I enjoy browsing campsites after guests leave.  I found free firewood (still burning to start my own flame), and a new hatchet.  I had just traded the same people a football I found in a bush for 2 beers…I asked for a small amount of coffee in exchange, but they only spoke French and returned from their tent with cold booze.  My other neighbors hooked up free weed for three days.  Blueberry Cookies, and Gorilla Glue.  We gifted each other items randomly, like tea, a decorative tin, kids game, a glow stick, dry shampoo, water and beyond.  Say hi to your fellow tenters.  #goodpeople   

Excuse me while I list a locked iPhone on eBay for parts.  I got it at a charity thrift store, hoping it was unlocked and use able for an extra video camera.  No luck, but I did find another camera half off at Goodwill.  It’s a Canon , and is worth $100.  The battery died so I to have to track down a wall charger online.  I will get an extra battery at the same time. 

Collecting bottle cans – Survival Bros made a Mission of it recently and hunted down the redeemable limit of 144, a few times.   Making $20 with two people working the bottle return robot.  These 10 cent recycleables have provided extra gas money for traveling.  One can = one mile down the road in my Ford Mustang.  This frees me up to drive around more to thrift and resell clothing in town.  I made $70 one day this week flipping old clothing, much of which was free to me.  Example: My buddy moved and left me a green Pendleton Men’s jacket.  I sold it for cash (vs more in trade) to Buffalo Exchange for a third of the price they will ask, being $65.

Somebody took a dump in the hottub at the resort.   Thankfully I pay attention to my surroundings.  This isn’t the first time I’ve encountered poop swirling in a spa.  The sauna is out of order too, so I’ve been down by the river hunting crawfish to fry up on the campfire.  Look at the BBQ bacon ends I ate.

I’ve been making Survival Bros Emergency Preparedness Caches to store, and sell.   I can customize them to fit almost any budget.  Want one?  A stash of extras can be huge in a pinch.  Trust me.  New videos coming.  Seen this YouTube classic yet?  It’s of a basic cache, to give you ideas.  Join us on YouTube.  We have 6,665 Subscribers to our channel.

cam-hugs-rickCam with Rick McCrank – host of VICELAND’S Abandoned in Astoria, Oregon

Coming to a screen near you on Friday 10/7/2016 at 8PM, Oregonian Cameron McKirdy appears on VICELAND’s “Abandoned.”  It’s a new travel documentary type show featuring deserted places.  I guided the VICE TV crew around our area, and shared my story.  Producers from British Columbia, Canada filmed the host, Professional Skateboarder Rick McCrank and I discussing preparations for a nuclear disaster, and a tsunami.  VICE and I took my Volkswagon van for a ride along the ocean in Long Beach, Washington looking for shelter, plus debris from the 2011 Japanese tsunami.  Over two days we built emergency preparedness kits with ammo boxes to bury in the ground along escape routes, like I have shown on my YouTube Channel called Survival Bros.  We scavenged free health food samples from A Gypsy’s Whimsy, and purchased essential gear items to cache at more stores located in Astoria and Seaside, OR.  The #survival kit I helped McCrank build should help him endure a disaster if he keeps it close by.  I always have my emergency Go-Bag with me.

ON AIR you should see me (Cam The Cuddler) hugging people and chatting about my life as a certified professional cuddler.  Check out CuddleLife.com for more information and to read my FAQs.  I offer a platonic touch service, and I’m open to trades and donations.  Typically I get one dollar per minute to care for people.  I believe cuddling is therapeutic, and a fun and safe way to get the positive human touch we all need to survive.

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.

Hug?  Ask.  I won’t turn you down. – Cam

Survival Bros challenges you to give TEN HUGS DAILY!  Try getting that many embraces or more, forever.  Let us know how it goes by leaving a comment below.  You’ll be making so many people smile, so don’t be shy.
