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.

Watch the Gearhart, Oregon Fire Department burning a building down to teach rescuers how to control the flames.  This is where I use to buy knifes and other EDC tools, and made this Altoids Survival Kit clip.  Black and whiteHere’s another video of an RV ablaze on the side of a road coming from Portland.  How does #survivalbros catch all this action?  Follow this blog by entering your email on the top left side of the page.  Thanks.

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!

driving in rain

Water on the road and windshield clearly reduce visibility while driving

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.

Survival Bros finds a used plastic water bottle full of urine in a Safeway parking lot.  Have you guys gone to the bathroom this way?  I’ve never thrown a refilled container out of my vehicle onto the highway.  That’s just wrong.  And littering will cost you.  Peeing on trees is much more fun.  Hug them before you go potty.

Litter weighing five pounds or less is a class C misdemeanor, punishable by a fine up to $500. If between five and 500 pounds, class B misdemeanor punishable by a fine up to $500, imprisonment up to 30 days, or both.

FACT:  It takes 450 years for a plastic bottle to decompose.

Recently I camped in a Walmart parking lot on West 11th in Eugene, Oregon.  In this HD video you’ll get the scoop on what it’s like to do some urban stealth camping in my 1986 Volkswagen Vanagon GL.  It was noisy, and the space is well lit, but in general, I got great rest.  It feels good to be somewhere, and not have to pay for the experience.  This was a fun experiment, and I’d recommend it to any Survival Bros. out there.  Staying at Walmart for free beats dropping hundreds for a night in a hotel.  Would you try this?  Live simple my friends.  More videos about my summer road trip coming soon.  Thanks for visiting my blog!  Peace and love.

Cameron McKirdy from Survival Bros shows you how to gather freebies at a motel.  Embrace hoarding, and be the real prepper you can be.  Not that I’d do it, but I bet you could walk into any hotel and politely ask for another shampoo, soap, and coffee and you’d get hooked up without being questioned about what room you are staying in.  Just saying.  I’ve already put my freebies in Ziploc bags for storage.  Happy prepping.  Please SUBSCRIBE to Survival Bros on YouTube!  Thank you.

Survival Bros drives in dangerous road conditions through Champaign, Illinois.  It was 29 degrees.  First came an inch of snow, then freezing rain, followed by a hail storm.  The worthless rental car, a Kia Soul, was covered in an inch of ice, and struggled to stay on the slippery road!  There were accidents all over the place, but it looks like the worst winter weather is behind us now.  Stay tuned for additional HD videos.  Please enter your email on the top left side of the blog to follow all of our posts.  More intense stuff soon.  Thanks for visiting!  Get prepared.

Another storm devastated the Oregon Coast this week. There was massive flooding on Highway 101 South of Seaside, OR. The road is still closed to vehicles. Only trucks are permitted to cross the high waters. Here’s the latest picture from the ODOT camera.

The heavy rains also caused a small landslide in Astoria, Oregon. Three homes on the hill were evacuated. Plus, the trolley service has been suspended because part of the train tracks washed out along the Columbia river. It will be fixed soon, but I’ve never heard of that happening.

There’s finally a calm in Clatsop County. We’ve had hail, snow, and high winds. Brutal. Be safe out there. This is a reminder to always be prepared. Have a bug out bag in your house and car. Disaster can strike anytime, especially along the Oregon Coast.
