Dear Journal,

Ahhhh….I’m resting in the Mustang.  I drove all Summer.  Circling the Pacific Northwest.  Treasure hunting.  Of course I found some.  Here’s my Summer recap and news update.

My home State of Oregon has been burning.  Roads closed, blocked off by Federal Forest Patrol.  Ash fallen.  Simultaneously, the solar eclipse brought cold, darkness, and silence.  It looked like the end of the world here.  Plus, The Authorities of Everything decided to ban fire.  So creating light, warmth, drinkable water, and cooking food is prohibited.  Camp on their terms.  Others really do know what’s best for me…On top of natural disasters, and galactic phenomenon, economic collapse is underway, with Bitcoin and crytocurrency prices skyrocketing.  Trust in traditional markets and pundits eroding.  And Hollywood is dying, being sold to Chinese companies.  Tinseltown Has Fallen

Meanwhile, The Internet, aka Google, continues to censor real information in live time, and hack Patriots.  For example: YouTube has been deleting comments, views, and likes from my videos.  Subscribe to Survival Bros while you still can.  Also, my laptop was being hacked mid upload while posting a video about the blatant censorship of real news.  I had to sell my computer thanks to Google trolls.  Now I switch devices monthly.  More precaucions against Big Brother will be taken.  This is an informaion war.  Are you in it?  Don’t say you do not have anything to hide.  This is a freedom and privacy issue.  Don’t stand by, fight for your rights so humanity has some in the future.  Another tactic Google uses is to bury New Media, so truth doesn’t appear in their curated trending section, and won’t be placed in the biased “News Carousel” either.  Or “Gulag”, I mean Google, will put videos in “restricted mode” or private so it’s not monetized, and difficult to find and watch.  You have to pay to play.  You’re being censored, and managed too!  Aware?  Twitter and Facebook are guilty as well.  It’s almost time to stop using these social media platforms in exchange for decentralized applications that promote free speech, your fundamental human right.

FACT: The Survival Bros Twitter account was attacked by The Russians.  Twitter emailed me about the login attempt…Maybe they want Uranium.  I don’t have any! And I don’t know of anybody with the stuff either.  Quit asking. #Russia

So what else have I, Cam The Cuddler been busy doing?  Soo much.  I worked off the rent balance for my storage units by helping the manager paint rotten boards, and cleaning gutters.  It didn’t take more that two hours to earn a few hundred bucks of credit, but something terrible happened in the process.  White paint drifted, and dotted my black car.  It wasn’t far away, and the guy with the paint sprayer gun didn’t get close enough to the surface of the wood.  Now I get to buff out the 1999 Survival Bros Mustang.  Speaking of Bettie, she’s running on a spare donut tire.  And I was trying not to attract cops.  I need a full set of tires, which will cost me around $400!  Plus, the front breaks are squealing, and a belt sqeeking.  Time to hustle.  U

Bummers like this maintenance bill can sting, so travelers must boost moral.  Adventure music helps uplift the spirit.  I bought a Back to The Future cassette for the Ford.  I got it at a garage sale for 25 cents.  Movie soundtracks are a blast driving to!  Of course I like meeting buddies, catching up, and playing games with them.  Poker anyone?  Another: Cop Trainer 2, is a classic video game shooter that keeps me sharp.  Blasting killer robots is a realistic and stimulating simulation at the arcade.

Scoring free samples around town is also amusing.  I hit Costco, hotels for free coffee, and gift shops along the coast to try cheeses, dips, and sauces, (not to mention beer and wine tastings).  Dipping complimentary pretzels gets stale, but once I did try a Grimm Reaper jelly with a date.  She couldn’t handle the heat!!!  We ran to a Gelato store where she demanded free samples.  Four little spoons later, life goes on for gypsies.

I’m riding solo once again.  No girlfriends.  No dog.   Just my racing mind, in a fast car; trying to stay grounded.  I’ve been doing a good job taking care of myself.  I needed alone time after this last relationship.  My company now is mainly comedians on podcasts I download.  However, I visit grandma frequently at a home, and tell the captive captivated old farts my adventures.  Nobody knows how I do it.  Living with little money, and no place to call Home.  I just make it happen, and continue to raise my RPMs.  Granny and I watched Mr. Bean.  She stockpiles extra mandarin oranges in her room from dinner.

Shoutout: I’m so grateful to my fans.  Almost daily now, people write me and tell me they saw me on VICELAND’s Abandonded episode 5 “Nuclear Waste”.  I love hearing about the impact I’ve had on their life.  Many were inspired to travel, or try the #vanlife out.  Others kindly shared that they made a survival kit because they saw me do it.  Go, and prep my friends.  I love you all.  Keep me in your hearts, and on your browser.  I have so much to share.  I’d like to hear from you directly.  Email me here: camthecuddler@gmail.com  I don’t use a phone anymore.  I’m sure I’ve missed texts from friends.  But I’m here to find.  Hugs.

Bug Out Bag and Bicycle – Winter Camping Gear Setup

Dear Survival Journal,

I got a way late start.  Was also considering busing to the warming center in Astoria, OR.  That’s smart. 

Hiking 7 miles ain’t.  But I was determined to bog through the uphill swamp: half in the dark.  I got turned around at one point where trees fell over the path.  I also slipped once, but rehearsed in my head what to do.  I threw my 1 gallon water jug, and braced myself.  Yup, I carried a heavy water container from Ave. U to The Hiker Cabins on Tillamook Head.  My shoulders and arms are torn up.  My 110 liter Kelty backpack had to be 70 pounds.  

Plus, I was running on a bum sprained ankle…wore a too tight brace…My left shoulder hurt the most.  It was so tight.  But I had an indica BHO cartridge in my vape pen to finish off.  It was charging in my bag on the hike with a portable power bank charger.  I brought too much stuff.  Like 6 pairs of socks, an umbrella, a dud smoke grenade, and a giant tarp.  It’s 11am – dark at 4:25pm.  So cold.  My hands are numb.

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.  

Share this video with other preppers, like, comment, and SUBSCRIBE on YouTube. Thanks.

car camping food listCar camping is one of my favorite blog topics.  I hope you find it interesting too.  Here’s a checklist of my top foods to store in your vehicle.  Many items instantly turn into grub by adding hot water.  I got ideas for the perfect van dwelling foods by watching YouTube videos of Thru Hikers packing for their long distance trips.  Search for Pacific Crest Trail aka PCT, or Appalachian Trail Backpackers online.

Ziplock bags are a trusted way to keep organized.  You can even write on the outside with a permanent pen to label things.  Plus, plastic sacks maintain some protection from water, rats, an other elements.  Let me know if you have any questions about my setup.  Add several gallons of distilled and spring water (not pictured), and I’m ready to go off the grid for weeks.  I’m stocked up on:

  • Honey with ginseng, bee pollen, and royal jelly
  • Drinks: water, aloe water, coconut beverages, teas, fruit juices
  • Soups in cans to heat and serve, and powdered packets
  • Protein Powder, plus various green powders (wheat grass)
  • Pasta Sides, and Dishes like Top Ramen
  • Dehydrated Food such as Mountain House Freeze Dried Meals (Apple Crisp is my favorite)
  • Fruit: Fresh Produce like apples and bananas, also fruit strips, bottles, and cans
  • Nuts and Seeds like Almond and Hemp
  • Granola Bars, and Oatmeal 
  • Instant Coffee, instant milk
  • Condiments: Packets of butter, salsa, pepper, salt, raw sugar, mayonnaise, ketchup, and everything else Free and Holy
  • Canned meats: Flavored tuna, Spam, Chicken Salad with crackers

What’s good? The Survival Bros Community is growing! People are sharing on our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/SurvivalBros and subscribing to Survival Bros on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/user/survivalbros My friends and I have big plans for the website.

Survival Bros is pleased to announce a new geocaching service on the site. We are currently preparing caches to hide all over the world! There will be special treasure for the first time finder. We won’t make the clues, or locations easy. You may need hiking boots. It’s going to be great. More soon.

If you live on the Oregon Coast, there will be a mushroom hunting foray at Fort Stevens in Warrenton OR this Sunday. Here’s what their website says: Fort Stevens Mysterious Mushrooms
Oct 20, 2012 at Fort Stevens State Park. 1 p.m. Meet at Picnic Shelter A at Coffenbury Lake for a program on wild mushrooms followed by a hike to hunt for fungi.

The weather outside is nasty. It’s time to mix up training routines. Personally, I’ve been doing less biking and hiking, and more indoor activities. I will be doing more body weight exercises, swimming, and lifting weights at the gym. It’s time to run too. Good luck challenging your body.

To be honest, now feels like the time to bulk up for colder months. I’ve been consuming every calorie possible. My peeps and I don’t mess around when it comes to food. After all, I am a pro eater. Look at this collection of dank eats I devoured.

Finally, here’s a preppers quote to consider, “two is one, one is none.” That means, your tools will get lost, or fail. It’s best to have two of what you need. Look around your house and see what you really use. Get that pantry tight with essentials. That’s all for now. Best wishes. – Cam
