Recently The Police terrorized my hometown of Seaside, Oregon (article) by setting off the emergency warning system.  This spread #fakenews to citizens, proclaiming that a tsunami wave would hit the city in four hours. It was a false alarm. (KGW Video)

This was similar to the incorrect incoming ballistic missile alert issued in Hawaii, which had everyone panicking and taking precautions…Parents were putting children in storm drains.

These two major mistakes prove there is no authority on anything, and officials don’t exist. Public figures care less about you, and your safety than you do. It’s a paycheck for them. So make your own survival kits.

How can you trust the government when they can’t even get it right when there’s no disaster? Officials won’t be there for you during an emergency. You need your own training, plan, team, and gear to adapt and overcome. Hawaiians had no idea what was really happening for 38 excruciating minutes. They were led to believe they were all about to die, and there was nothing they could do about it. No tips. Just threats.

People are pushing the wrong buttons alright. Buttons they don’t have the training to use properly, or the desire to carefully watch over. Heads should roll in these public offices. But they will blame funding, and take more money from you instead. You can’t rely on the government for anything but failures, without accountability.

ios 7 fail

Breaking news!  iOS 7 Software update fails to install.  Just another reminder not to depend on technology. It’s probably due to heavy demand on their servers. Maybe it will work later today.  Survival Bros will keep you updated.  We’ve tried to install the software 7 times now, with no success.  Luckily the sun is shining, and it’s going to be a wonderful day regardless.  Thanks for visiting the blog.

Update:  Just when it looked like my iPhone 4S was about to update with the new software displaying “verifying update”, my phone turned off.  I figured that was a good thing, and I’d reboot, and get all the new benefits of the system.  But NO!  When I turned my cell back on, it was the same old, boring version.  Now it seems frozen, with a picture telling me to plug the device in so it can connect to iTunes.  I did that, and it’s not doing a damn thing.

Plus, this blog post was going viral, but now it’s nowhere to be found by Google search.  I smell a conspiracy.  It was on the top of the results page when you typed in iOS 7 update failure.  Clearly, Survival Bros is being prevented from sharing real news.  Now I don’t have a phone, because it’s still screwed up and paralyzed!  Damn you Apple.

Wow…So I plugged my phone into the computer and launched iTunes.  Then I clicked on the device, and a warning popped up reading, “iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.  You must restore this iPhone before it can be used with iTunes.”  How the hell are you supposed to restore it?  It’s still frozen like a caveman.  I bet ya I lost a ton of data, including contacts, and notes.  This is the worst case scenario.  I can’t believe it.  Luckily I backed up all my photos and videos earlier today.  Still.  Welcome to Hell iPhone users.  I pay $140 a month for this shit?  Unforgivable.   I should have stayed with a Droid I guess.   

I started the process of restoring my phone, but Apple said it would be reverted back to the old version and not iOS 7.  Meaning I lose all my data, and still don’t get he new operating system.  I wish I would have waited for others to discover this issue before I tried updating, but I never had issues in the past.  At the moment I’m downloading the newest version of iTunes.  Maybe then I can get iOS 7 installed correctly, but I doubt it.  And I’m still boned because restoring the system means going back to the factory settings.  I’m in a pickle, and I don’t like them on anything.

Now “Errors occurred while installing the (iTunes) updates.”  I guess I have no choice but to reinstall iOS version 6.1.4 so I can at least use my phone again, and see the damage.  Then maybe I can get an update fixing the bugs.  Arghh.

Please like, comment, and share this blog post so that others don’t endure the same pain and personal anguish.  Good luck Apple fans.

After trying to restore my iPhone, I just ran into another problem.  iTunes is saying, “There was a problem downloading the software for the iPhone.  An unknown error occurred (9006).”  All I can do is try again later.  Not like I need a phone or anything.  Now I feel like a caveman.  

After updating my iTunes software once again, I hit “restore iPhone.”  It seemed to be updating, and the iPhone restarted.  However, now I’m having problems activating my 4S with iOS 7.  It wants me to join my wifi network, but once I type in the correct password, it still won’t connect.  It won’t connect using my cellular network either.  I’m stuck again, as Apple “Could Not Activate iPhone.”  This is bullshit.  I thought they beta tested this.  I still don’t have a working phone.  I’ve been trying to update the system for 3 hours now with no luck at all.  More soon.

20130918-163440.jpgiOS 7 is finally up and running on my cell.  I lost all my contacts and data, because I was forced to restore my iPhone.  Lame.   I got this odd notification too.  Now I’m downloading all the apps I had.  That was a long 6 hour ordeal.  #AppleFail

Saddle Mt Summit Photo

Ready or not, my chubby puggle Mocha was going hiking with me.  I took the pug/beagle combo to the top.  She made the summit by herself, but it was a struggle.  It was a sweltering 80 plus degrees out.  My poor dog hasn’t been training hard lately.  Her exercise routine consists of going from the couch to food and back.  But Mocha and I have hiked, so I knew the 5-year-old mutt still had it.  I remember the first time I let her off the leash on a trail.  She was running back and forth, up and down it.  The puggle was so excited to be out of the apartment.  I couldn’t contain her.  Once she even fell off a cliff as the bank eroded and I had to quickly swing her up by the leash and collar to save her.  Mocha is much fatter now, but we are working on it.

Mocha The Puggle

When we got to Saddle Mountain State Natural Area her nose was working overtime.  There were lots of people hitting the trail, and camping.  I brought water, and gave the puggle breaks.  I made her sit, and she would lay in the shade when she could.  The hike is 5 miles round trip,  but the elevation change is brutal. It’s 1603 feet to be exact, with the top at 3283 feet. Mainly I was concerned about her paws bleeding.  There is lots of metal fencing on the ground to contain the loose rocks, and I didn’t know if that would bother her.  On the way up I kept Moc on the leash, 1 because there’s cliffs, and 2 because lots of people were coming down the trail with dogs.  I wanted to protect her.  However, on the way down I decided it would be better to let her follow me off leash.  She didn’t want to walk on the trail because the gravel was hurting her.  So she waddled along side the main path, and didn’t hurt anything.  Plus, it was getting late, and we were basically the last down.

Mocha Survival Puggle

On the way we checked out a geocache hidden on a side trail.  I’ve found it before, but I wanted to see all the new stuff inside, and sign the log book again.  Not many people locate it each year.  I traded in a emergency paracord bracelet for a CD with clues to another cache.  I’m getting into geocaching because it’s something fun to do while hiking, or when you’re just out and about.  There’s more than 2 million geocaches planted around the world.  This hobby also forces me to analyze and use maps too.  I filmed Mocha and I checking out what was inside the ammo box this time.

After a few solid hours of hiking, Mocha, my cameraman, and I reached the peak.  We all sat down and took in the majestic views of the North Coast.  You can see the whole coastline, from Seaside well into Washington State.  Poor Mocha was beat.  She was gasping for air, and I was a little worried about her.  We had just enough water left to quench her thirst, but more would have been nice.  Usually there is a spring about halfway up that I feel is safe to drink from.  My dog did lap up the puddle there, but I wasn’t getting on all fours.  In the end, Mocha killed it.  I was so proud of her.  I kept her motivated with words of encouragement, smacking her butt, and tossing turkey jerky in her mouth.  On the way back I told Moc we were going back to the car and home for ice cubes (her fav).  My legs were jello, and Mocha was walking funny, but we accomplished the mission.  Next time we will be even stronger, and smarter about it.  

Cam and MochaMocha knew we were going to the top.  If you want to rock a paracord bracelet for emergency preparedness made by Survival Bros, send $8 to cameronmckirdy@hotmail.com via PayPal.  Thanks and best wishes from us both.

It’s my pleasure to bring to you, the GSI Outdoors Pinnacle Dualist.  This is a brilliant cooking solution for ultralight backpacking.  It gets high marks with Survival Bros, and my puggle featured in the HD video review above.

I think you’ll like this cookware system because it has all the bases covered.  It comes loaded with two telescoping foons, two 20 ounce insulated bowls with lids, two 20 ounce mugs, and a large hard anodized aluminum pot including a lid with a built in strainer.  This is perfect for cooking pasta, and even works as a spout for pouring liquids like hot tea.  The orange and blue foons match their bowls, but I like them because they are deep, so I can take big bites.  They are dishwasher safe too, like the rest of the Pinnacle Dualist.  Also, the entire package is BPA-free, so you aren’t absorbing harmful chemicals.

When I first got the Dualist a few months back, I was stoked that the bowls were insulated.  The last thing I want is my precious food to go cold right after I prepare it.  Plus, the bowls have “Sip-it” lids.  GSI Outdoors must have been thinking about messy eaters like me.  With the lids locked down, I’m less likely to spill scorching soup on my chest.  Another sly feature is the rubberized pot handle.  It folds, and either locks into place as a long handle, or on top of the bowls, keeping everything secure in the pot.

The stuff sack is also a wash basin.  I couldn’t believe it either.  It’s one more container that could come in handy for collecting water out of the creek, or washing your hands before supper.  The cookware system looks as good as it functions.  It’s orange and black.  I like having a high-visibility handle for cooking in low light.  And when you’re done, the Pinnacle Dualist is an easy clean.  It uses non-stick Teflon with Radiance technology.  So there’s no scrubbing.  Heat spots aren’t an issue either, allowing for quicker, and more even cooking.

The Pinnacle Dualist retails for $64.95.  If you are looking for an ultralight cooking solution ideal for two people, this could be for you.  I like the price, but truly appreciate the thought that went into this American design.  It’s all only 21.6 ounces, and the pot holds 1.8 liters.  The dimensions are 5.90″ x 6.40″ x 5.90″.  The Dualist offers bang for your buck.  This product gets the Survival Bros seal of approval.  Please comment, like, and share.  Thanks.
