Cameron McKirdy here. I had to update the WordPress Blog with new media! Check out the vintage bikes I scored at Goodwill, and from a garage sale in Oregon. I paid $12.99 for the old women’s Univega, and just $20 cash for the rare Giant Yukon. That’s a nice ride. It was stored by an old man, so it’s mint. However, I need to replace the Shimano brake pads. The rubber is hard and old now. That will set me back around $50, but it’s worth it. I don’t like the hard seat either. Plus, the aluminum kickstand broke on the Maiden Voyage. I didn’t find any.

Cam had fun fitting this bike in his car
Just needed one new tube!

Check out Trinity Bikes in Redmond, Oregon. We recommend them to Friends! + Insta

This is UNISEX! I’d hit the trail with them.

More updates soon on these cycling projects. I will be putting racks on them, lights, and possibly handlebars. Thanks for coming back to…SURVIVAL BROOOOOOS!!!!! #cycling #oregon #giantbikes

Somebody peel this off already!

Out of nowhere, my VW Bus is struggling to start.  Everything electrical flickers.  The radio cuts out.  The engine sputters.  Plus, the battery and OXS (oxygen sensor) light came on.  I called Avery’s Air-Cooled in Kelso, WA and they helped me diagnose the problem over the phone.  We figured the issue was a faulty voltage regulator.  Mechanics Jason and Kelly had a $40 Bosch part, and installed the unit for only $29.  But before I got fixed up and back on the road, I was parked on the shoulder of Highway 101, waiting for Classic Towing to get me to another state – Washington.  Thank God for AAA.  I’m on the Premier towing package.  Nothing but the best for my baby.  Funny that I broke down on the way to the repair shop.

Avery’s Air-Cooled always hooks me up, and keeps my bill low.  And if you have a Volkswagen, chances are they will have the part you need in stock.  Call them to order something at (360) 425-1119  Here’s their website too!   http://www.averysaircooled.com/  I will have to shoot some HD video there soon.  They have tow truck loads of vintage bugs, buses, and beyond.  And if you hang out long enough, you’ll get to see a traveling Art Show as the graffiti passes on the nearby train tracks.

Here’s an HD video production I created filming graffiti on trains in Longview, Washington.  Visit Cam’s other YouTube Channel and SUBSCRIBE!
