This week I did something wild!  I pushed my limits, and enjoyed eight zip lines on the Oregon Coast in Warrenton.  I’d never attempted anything like this adventure.  It got my heart rate up, and made me scream to the top of my lungs.

Watch me zip down the fastest line there called Huckleberry on The Survival Bros YouTube Channel

What it’s like to jump from the top of the tower on an Extreme Zip Swing or Zwing with a 20 foot rope attached to the cable!

Enjoy a gallery of my photographs from my trip to High Life Adventures:

My tour group of eight people took around three hours to complete the course.  We had two local, and friendly guides.  They communicated with small radios attached to their harness.  One guide would go first, then use a rope to gently bring them to a controlled stop.  The female went last, and was responsible for securing us properly.  You don’t have to walk much in between the routes.  In fact, they have a 4×4 vehicle if you want to use it, or get spooked and need a ride back to the parking lot early.

Jumping from the observation tower is intense.  There are three different lines from that point, on two levels.  SPOILER ALERTS: You get a cookie and a juice box halfway through the tour, plus spring water.  Soon they will have a wood stove operational for the brutal winter months, and a wind turbine on top.  Also, be on the lookout for Sasquatch.  I just saved you a heart attack, and/or a lawsuit.  I threw a legit left jab to the face of the masked man, and nearly delivered a swift leg kick before realizing I wasn’t in danger.  Fortunately, when he sneaks up, you’re still locked to the zip line, and can’t fully attack!  

I would highly recommend going on this zip line tour.  It costs $99, and you can also try THE ZWING, their extreme zip swing.  I did, and got a high-visibility rubber bracelet as a souvenir.  The add-on is $29 more, but worth it, if you can keep down your cookie.  I was attached to a longer, 20-foot rope, and jumped off the side of the tower instead of from the middle like most of the group.  So I flew 40 feet across, and then dropped towards the lake, on the 1200′ long cable.  I screamed like Bigfoot, and was definitely the loudest in the group.  I look forward to zip lining again soon, and possibly filming even more.  Honestly, this would be a hard hobby to master.  The easiest way to stay facing forward is to hold your line towards the top of the connection.

 Mitsubishi Fuso FG 140 4×4 truck spotted in Seaside, Oregon!  This emergency preparedness rig has an ideal setup for extreme mobile living, and protection from undead zombies among us.  Would you car camp in this monster?  It looks comfortable, and well designed.  It may be bigger than I’d want for bugging out, and I don’t know about the color, but it’s an excellent truck platform to work from.  The Fuso just needs a snorkel if it’s going to spend the winter on the Oregon Coast.  I didn’t see a camera system installed either for extra security.

This beast looks like a completely custom job, made to be multi-purpose.  There’s few places it couldn’t go on Earth.  I’d love to hear what you have to say about this setup in the comment section, or on our YouTube channel.  I’m sure this vehicle will be on the road for a long time, baring an unforeseen marauders, or natural disasters, etc.  Please SUBSCRIBE to Survival Bros by entering your email on the top left side of the screen!  Stay tuned for more emergency preparedness news, because you can’t know what’s around the corner.

I finally juiced again. This is organic carrots, red apple, cucumber, celery, and broccoli! I’m sipping it right now. The juice is sweet. Not bad at all. And loaded with electric energy. My body is grateful. This one cost maybe $6 to make. Not bad considering how much it made. I will have plenty for later. Happy juicing.

I had too much coffee, and acidic foods today, so I was suffering from heartburn. I was out of calcium rich Tums, so I tried Pepto Bismol, but that didn’t help. Drinking extra spring water didn’t do much for relief either. So I reached for a natural remedy, Dr. Bragg’s organic apple cider vinegar mixed with water. I was able to burp big time, which helped. Next I drank more water with a couple spoonfuls of pure baking soda. That was the trick. I felt better almost instantly, and had to share this info. I hope that works for you.

I’m starting the new year, 2013, with a healthy total body cleanse. I began today with a raw juice drink. My Jack LaLanne Power Juicer muscled through garlic, ginger, organic celery, green apples, carrots, lemon, limes, and cucumber.

Right now I am six feet tall, and 225 pounds. I’d like to drop down to around 200 lbs, or less. I was 185 in high school. I will be eating some organic vegetable soups, salads, fruit, nuts, seeds, and juicing. Plus, I really like the raw whey, and vegan protein supplements I have, so I will be making mad smoothies with that goodness. I’ll be drinking hemp, almond, coconut, soy, and 7 grain milk too. I also love aloe water with the chunks, and coconut water.

I plan on training hard immediately. I’m going to be speed walking hills, playing basketball, mountain biking, doing yoga, weightlifting, and running. I will also be using my foam roller for massage and more. I plan on taking vitamins too, with gallons of natural spring water. Stay tuned. This is a live blog. It’s on. I can’t wait to feel, and look better. Good luck!

Day two: I was a liquidarian today. I didn’t chew anything. In the AM my diet consisted of cranberry/goji juice, 2 Odwalla Monster protein drinks, and coconut water. Later I had coffee, which I will be weening myself off of. It got the bowels moving. In the afternoon I made another green juice, with mostly cucumbers. Finally, I sipped kombucha. I consumed spring water throughout the day, and enjoyed hemp milk too. I felt lighter, and leaner today. It’s nice cutting out most of the dairy. I feel like dairy makes me bloated. I plan on pounding more liquids tomorrow, and maybe raw cashews, and salad. Life is good. I will weigh myself again in the morning.

Day 3: I’m doing all liquids again today, minus a mushy banana. Maybe I will eat a fruity Larabar and seeds tomorrow for fiber. However, the juice I got at the health food store did have added fiber. Today I started with kombucha tea, and had a little espresso. I’ve guzzled various natural juices without high fructose corn syrup. And I picked up an aloe water, and organic apple cider vinegar. That’s it, besides more cold water. I feel fine. I have a little less energy today, because I don’t have food energy, or excessive amounts of caffeine in my system. When detoxing it’s important to get lots of rest and relaxation, in my opinion. Do what’s right for you.

OK, I used a fork tonight. Mom made veggie stir fry, and you don’t turn that down. She’s on her own cleanse now. Mom wrote a blog for Survival Bros on going gluten free, and food allergies. Coming soon!

Survival Bros has been doing some hardcore juicing. I recently fired up the Jack Lalanne Power Juicer, and extracted raw, fresh juice from the fruit and vegetables pictured below. My new favorite drink is carrot juice, mixed with frozen mangos, and orange juice (top right). I whipped that up in my Ninja blender. I drank so much. I’m making raw juice popsicles soon. I will post a picture. Peace.

Survival Bros juices! And we love it. If you haven’t had fresh, raw, fruit and veggie juice, then you’re are missing out. In this blog, SB shows you the power of juicing. If you want, make a drink, then read on. I’m sipping a cucumber, carrot, celery blend as I write.

I got the Jack Lalanne Power Juicer two years back. Since then, every time I need more energy, I look to juicing. Sure caffeine and other stimulants can give you a boost, but fresh juice is different. It gives me energy, and mental clarity. It’s electric, and alive. I feel better immediately after drinking a large glass. Sometimes I pound 72 ounces for a complete meal. Try mixing protein, wheat grass, or maca powder in for even more power! Play around with mixing supplements and juice.

If you’ve never juiced before, don’t be scared. You probably won’t have to hangout near the bathroom either, like some people think. Juicing is a natural, and easy way to detox, and even super hydrate. I typically juice before setting out on a long adventure. Coconut water is another excellent hydrator.

Freshly extracted juice is best consumed within 24 hours, but it’s OK if refrigerated up to three days in a sealed container. Hippies like us at Survival Bros also love that it hasn’t been pasteurized. Heat destroys bacteria, molds, and unwanted micro-organisms that MIGHT be hiding in the juice, but all those raw vitamins, minerals, and enzymes are likely lost too. Think for yourself. I’ve never heard of anybody getting hurt juicing.

Juice is healing. Go on a three day juice feast and tell me you don’t look and feel better. Juicing gives you vitality. The more you juice, the more you glow. Your skin will look better, and people will notice. No we aren’t selling juicers, but we do want you to be healthy. If you can’t afford a new juicer, then regularly visit a shop or health food store that serves fresh juice. You can also buy a manual, citrus juicer for under $10. Next to practicing yoga, juicing is probably the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. You won’t regret investing in a juicer. There are plenty of books on the topic too, so don’t be intimidated to start your practice. The documentary, “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” by Joe Cross is worth watching also.

Another juice I really enjoy is simply: beets, lemon, ginger, and green apples! Let’s hear your juicing journey. Comment here or leave a recipe for others. Best wishes from the bunker.
