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 vlogs about getting freebies around town by asking.  This new HD video was filmed at Country Village in Longview, Washington.  You’d be surprised how much free stuff you can acquire by requesting health food samples at local stores in person.  I’m a regular customer, so I can get complementary products in trial sizes, without purchasing a single item.  Plus, I ask nicely, and am very grateful for the edible endowments.  After all, they do call me Cameron Consumption.  I’ve got this survival system down to an Art form.  Thanks for watching.

In these HD #survivalbros videos I source product, or pick stuff, to potentially resell at a profit.  I purchased nearly 27 pounds of Goodwill donations at 99 cents per lb in one day, as seen in the first vlog below.  Watch these guides to learn more about picking, aka hustling.  I chose a diverse range of merchandise, buying everything from purses to Nintendo Wii video games.  I think I scored on my thrifting haul adventure, but you  be the judge.  SUBSCRIBE TO SURVIVAL BROS ON YOUTUBE HERE to join the conversation.  Thanks for watching.

Pro Tips for  Shopping at The Goodwill Outlet Bins:

  1. Wear gloves.  This way you can toss stuff, and protect your hands from sharp objects…
  2. Weigh your cart several times to see where your at, and to preview what you may spend.
  3. Take a chance on an item or two that you know nothing about.  It may prove to be a super find.

More advice coming in blog articles soon…..

Hustling isn’t for lazy people.  You have to think on your feet, and react quickly.  One must follow their heart, and instincts to get money.  Buying and selling the goods you got takes skill too.  Then you have to deliver on your promise to the customer in order to maintain your street cred.  Do you have what it takes to be a hustler?  I made this video to help others get ideas about reselling their thrift shop finds, not to simply to show off my abilities.  But damn I’m good.  No.  Hustling, making a video on it, and articulating ideas in an article is not for the lazy. Good money is earned.  My thoughts are free.  Check out the picked profit breakdown below.

Total Value and Asking price on thrifting haul:

1. Price is Right Wii game + $20

2. Tiger Woods 08 game + $25

3. Baby Einstein DVDs + $20

4. Batman CD Player + $45 (SOLD!)

5. Starbucks Tumbler + $20

6. Lion King Disney Mug + $20

7. Sony Walkman Radio + $40

8. Octopus Ring + $20 = $210

*Spent only $19!

People need physical touch from others.  Babies must have attention, and contact, or they will die.  So LOVE, and CUDDLING, ARE SURVIVAL ISSUES.

After living out of my van in the woods for months while managing a campground and hot spring, I found myself wanting more non-sexual, platonic contact with others.  I sought out more human touch, including cuddling from friends and family, and put in extra snuggle time.  Later I’d visit Samantha Hess at her famous cuddle cafe on:

1015 E Burnside St.
Portland, OR 97214

Cuddle Up To Me is a safe and comfortable place where you can go to feel respected, appreciated, and worthy.  When I first saw Samantha Hess, I was all hopped up on coffee, hadn’t eaten, and had all these big ideas for how I could help her cuddling business.  Well, I eventually chilled out, and opened up to her.  We shared our stories during our consultation. After processing, I wished to cuddle in her fantastic Universe themed space room.  Snuggling Sam was very relaxing.  Focusing on my breath, and the sensations of compassionate touch, it was simple to be now.  Sam guided me into several silly sounding poses like: Mama Bear, Side Pocket, and Lazy Spoon.  Book an appointment with a Certified Cuddler for more details.  Cuddling with no sexual intentions is one experience we should all have regularly.  I felt wonderful for weeks.

Hug?  Ask.  I won’t turn you down. – Cam

Survival Bros challenges you to give TEN HUGS DAILY!  Try getting that many embraces or more, forever.  Let us know how it goes by leaving a comment below.  You’ll be making so many people smile, so don’t be shy.

Further discussion about empathy and attention:

I’ve been on the hunt at local thrift shops for a bargain.  After scouring the Eugene/Springfield, Oregon area I hauled in fresh gear, and saved a wad of money buying items second hand.  However, most of the swag mentioned in this HD video production is new.  I’ve been popping tags.  I hope to use these pieces backpacking, vandwelling, and as essential Every Day Carry items.  

Nike SFB Tan Boots

I found a new pair of Nike Special Field Boots or SFB at St. Vinnie’s.  They retail online for $140 or more, if you can locate your size.  I had hoped they were size 12’s when I spotted them on display.  It was my lucky day, because they were a match for me.  The desert tan kicks had been marked $29.99, but were half off that day.  I got the shoes for $14.99!  I’ve been wanting this exact pair of 8 inch high military style boots.  Here’s the male equivalent of girls wearing Uggs in public.  I get lots of compliments on them.  No I haven’t served, but I train with soldiers.  

Mechanix MPACT gloves

I lost one of my all black Mechanix M-PACT Covert gloves bouncing around town celebrating New Years.  So, now I’m breaking in another pair of work gloves that I had for backup.  I like wearing them while biking, or even driving my Volkswagen Vanagon.  This brightly colored safety wear is men’s size Large.  Newer versions fit even better.  I also like that they dry out quickly in the sun.

Here’s my other videos on thrift store shopping.  I’ve found some treasures, and I look forward to going back into the city to discover what else I can’t live without.  Thanks for supporting the blog.  Visit again shortly.  I have lots of wacky videos in the works.  Have a great Spring Break, and Summer!

Survival Bros gets 26 different free samples in his local Costco shopping center on HD video.  This total number doesn’t reflect when Cam swooped up multiple trial bites of the same item.  You’re allowed to take more than one, as long as it’s on the tray.  All of this complementary grub made a full meal, but he is still hungry.  Cam didn’t even purchase any stuff, and doesn’t have a Costco membership card.  Get access with a Costco Gift Card, then sample up, or buy an inexpensive meal at the food court deli.  

Try going at the end of the day for extra samples.  They are trying to get rid of the products before closing time.  What’s your favorite line from this production?  Leave a comment.  You can also subscribe at the top left to get free articles delivered to your email inbox.  Survival Bros doesn’t Spam, but we do store it just in case.  Mmmmm.  More crazy adventures coming on this blog.  Cheers.

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.
