Cameron McKirdy from Survival Bros gives you a tour of his vehicle, and explains why he uses the gear he has.  Living in a van allows him to be more free, and not answer to a Boss.  He can nap, or go thrifting when he wants to.  It’s a challenging lifestyle, but vandwelling can be done, if you’re creative, and easy-going.  #vanlife

Would you live in a van? You get to travel more, and save some money. Going places may help you meet new people, and get different perspectives.  Don’t be afraid to chat, and share with strangers.  Subscribe on YouTube, and follow us on Twitter! More posts soon.  Thanks for stopping by our blog.

Survival Bros CEO Cameron McKirdy breaks a low quality stainless steal knife with his bare hands!  Watch the stress testing.  It didn’t last long, because we knew it would fail right away.  Made in China tools are usually garbage, and this video proves it.  Don’t use cheap knives, you will hurt yourself.  Find the gear right for you, and get an #EDC rotation going to test everything out.  Buy American!  #usa

Screenshot from the video.  My RPM gauge is the only instrument that works in the VW Vanagon!  I can’t figure out how to reset the clock either.  Plus, the odometer and speedometer are broken, so I go the the GPS unit for more information on my drive sometimes.  The van needs some love.  My heater fan went out last summer, but will require taking off the dash.

Survival Bros Tips for driving in rain:

  1.  Turn your lights on
  2.  Obey traffic laws
  3.  Allow extra time and distance between yourself and other cars
  4.  Have good windshield wiper blades and/or Rain-X the front
  5. Take your time (go slower), plus let people in (merge), and people to cross the road
  6. Avoid distractions like filming, texting while driving, and singing to music in your car

Please try NOT to soaking pedestrians with enormous puddles near sidewalks!

A survivalist and cancer fighter answers my questions about his unique ride.  This electric trike gets 240 miles per gallon of gas.  Talk about frugality and wellness wrapped in one man’s mission to live!  The cyclist is always moving his legs, and getting a workout while going down the road.  He had this tricycle loaded with groceries, and clean laundry.  It could easily haul over 100 pounds of gear.  What do you think of this survival mobile?  More on the #survivalbros YouTube Channel.  Subscribe today to watch all the HD video adventures for free online.  Thanks for the support.

#SurvivalBros swaps fake dollar bills for a more authentic, and traditional unit of exchange (silver) in this HD video production.  Please like, comment, and share this #movie  For more content, take a minute to SUBSCRIBE to the Survival Bros YouTube Channel if you have an account!  Thanks.

You just saw proof that you can still get real silver for silver certificates.  The Government really should honor these novelty items.  But no.  You may only have Federal Reserve Notes.  Thanks!  

After consulting with expert buyers/sellers in my community, the consensus is that paper silver certificates don’t go for more than $2-$5, unless you get a particular year, which I don’t know anything about yet.

But why stockpile silver versus other goods to trade potentially?  Because paying for storage sucks, and I’m condensing my wealth to a smaller physical size.  And silver in undervalued at this time, in my mind.  So I can get more in trade later.

Yeah, but Walmart doesn’t take silver bullion!  Not yet.  And if you have silver coins you can simply take them to the coin shop in your hood to get cash to purchase Chinese garbage and GMOs.  

Well, that dollar with The Rock on it isn’t worth a dollar, so you ripped them off, and you’re a jerk.  Hmmm….I think it’s still redeemable.  And Dwayne Johnson may as well be on our money since it’s so funny.  Audit The Fed.

 Take a second to leave a comment on this blog post, if you’d be so kind.  What do you stockpile just in case, if anything?  Cheers.
