Watch and learn how to get a free home, vehicle, or abandoned trailer like this one I found.  It was left on a back road in Oregon.  If someone doesn’t claim it by the posted time on the public notice, then it will be towed and impounded.  To get a free house, etc. just call the Sheriff and tell the police it’s yours now, and you will be taking responsibility of ownership.  

I could put this on a friend’s property, or pay only $35 per month to store it locally.  Decisions…Decisions…and here I am blogging about it.

Would you take a ditched trailer like this project?  How fun would it be to make it how you wanted?  Subscribe to #survivalbros on YouTube, and enter your email on the top left side of the homepage of http://www.SurvivalBros.com  #Hugs

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 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.

The Portland Expo Center is hosting the 38th annual Pacific Northwest Sportsman’s show from February 6 – 10, 2013.  I went on opening day.  It was $8 to park, and another $12 for admission.  I made the trip worthwhile, checking out every booth and demonstration.

This show has something for every adventurer.  There’s boating, rving, and fishing exhibits, to name a few.  So if you’re looking for gear, or ideas on where to travel, this is for you.  I was impressed with the high amount of outfitters around.  There’s a guide for everything under the sun.  Most were for hunting trips, but I saw whitewater rafting experts offering their services too.  I liked talking up the small, mom and pop vendors with interesting, lesser known products.  My favorite item I found is called Squat Strap (www.squatmonkey.com).  It’s a strap that wraps around a tree, or rock to help support you while you go poop.  Brilliant.  Now I can read a business book outside, while doing my business.  I had to get a strap to test.  More on that soon. 

I also talked to a local inventor named Andy Gorman.  He developed the Retractable Tool Tether, so you stop dropping things (www.retractabletooltether.com).  I picked up a few of these to review also.  I’ll put one on my jacket, and one on my EDC backpack.  Maybe I will stop losing things.  Doubtful.

There was lots to peruse, and stuff to sample.  I tasted storable foods, oils, jams, meats, and energy drinks.  Skoal was giving away cans of chew, put I passed.  The Expo was serving beer as well.  And at one booth you could try panning for gold, or buy a small nugget.  Fun, but I will be panning outside.  I shopped knives too, and picked up product catalogs to browse later.   If you like the outdoors better than the indoors, visit this show before it’s gone.   

truck

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.
