Cameron McKirdy with Rick McCrank creating Abandoned Ep. 5 on VICELAND
Look out for Oregonian Cameron McKirdy on VICELAND’s “Abandoned” episode #5 called Nuclear Waste. It’s a new travel documentary type show featuring deserted places. I guided the VICE TV crew around our area, and shared my story. Producers from British Columbia, Canada filmed the host, Professional Skateboarder Rick McCrank and I discussing preparations for a nuclear disaster, and a tsunami. VICE and I took my Volkswagon van for a ride along the ocean in Long Beach, Washington looking for shelter, plus debris from the 2011 Japanese tsunami.
Over two days we built emergency preparedness kits with ammo boxes to bury in the ground along escape routes, like I have shown on my YouTube Channel called Survival Bros. We scavenged free health food samples from A Gypsy’s Whimsy, and purchased essential gear items to cache at more stores located in Astoria and Seaside, OR. The #survival kit I helped McCrank build should help him endure a disaster if he keeps it close by. I always have my emergency Go-Bag with me. ON AIR you should see me (Cam The Cuddler) hugging people and chatting about my life as a certified professional cuddler. Check out CuddleLife.com for more information and to read my FAQs. I offer a platonic touch service, and I’m open to trades and donations. Typically I get one dollar per minute to care for people. I believe cuddling is therapeutic, and a fun and safe way to get the positive human touch we all need to survive.
He’s creepy, scary, and unreal…Have you seen this invisible guy in OR state?! Follow him on Instagram for more free fun. In this YouTube video I goof off and record an apparitional artist working on The Promenade in Seaside, Oregon for cash! I love watching street performers hustle people. I bet he made $100 hour. Supporting creative actors like this sure beats wasting dollars at all of the tourist traps.
Do you like going to this popular vacation destination along the beach? I’d love to hear about your travels.
Thanks for visiting my blog! More unreal video productions coming soon, so stay tuned…

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.
As you can see in this HD video, nobody beats up gear like me. I took the new Kershaw Secret Agent knife to the beach, and put it through a rigorous torture test. I sliced, and stabbed ocean debris washed ashore in Long Beach, Washington.
Flashing the tool with the protective sheath on!
Model Number 4007, the Secret Agent isn’t flashy. It’s functional. The spear point blade has a black-oxide coating for protection against corrosion. Additionally, the surface is non-reflective. So it won’t catch light, or be easy to see. Both sides come sharpened, making it easy to puncture nearly any material. The Secret Agent handled rope, plastic, aluminum, fiberglass, and even a dead jellyfish! After the beating, it was still sharp, and the tip showed little wear. Of course, knives don’t like sand, so I plan to sharpen it for the first time, or I can send it back to the KAI warehouse to get it cleaned up for free. I’ve stopped by Kershaw headquarters in Tualatin, Oregon (South of Portland) before for a hassle free repair, which took less than an hour.
This knife is a favorite in my collection because it’s lightweight at only 3 ounces. The ergonomic handle is glass-filled nylon. It’s well balanced. Fitting securely in my palm, without being too wide. Plus, with a rubberized, textured grip, it’s not going to slip out of my hand. You can wear it on a lanyard, or strapped to your leg. Blade length is perfect, and no joke at 4.4 inches long. The black sheath is quality, with a wide, tight clip. At under $40, the Kershaw Secret Agent knife may be the best value in the industry. Don’t forget Kershaw Knives’ products are backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty against manufacturing defects. Bottom line: The Secret Agent belongs in your Every Day Carry knife rotation. It’s Survival Bros tested and approved. For more HD videos, SUBSCRIBE TO OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL. Thank you.

Survival Bros sleeps in a 1986 Volkswagen Vanagon GL, down by the Columbia River for free. There’s a row of RV parking near the Safeway gas station in Astoria, OR. It’s an ideal place for travelers to crash without having to drop big bucks on a hotel. This location is something for car campers to consider when visiting Clatsop County. There’s not many spots where you can camp overnight within city limits, since being homeless is a (victimless) crime. Find out if the Army of sea lions drove me crazy from all the noise.

The colors! Witness a double rainbow going into the Pacific Ocean. Filmed in HD on the Prom near 12th Ave. in Seaside, Oregon. I had to chase down these spectacular rainbows in my VW van, and record this silly video for you. This is one of my favorite spots in down to hang out, and people watch.

Survival Bros followers know I’ve been on the road all summer in my 1986 Volkswagen Vanagon GL. It’s ran strong for months straight. I will do a big summer review blog soon, but here’s a van update shot recently on my travels around the Pacific Northwest. Scope out the rest area known as Dismal Nitch. This Washington State Park is a historic location, because The Lewis and Clark Expedition ran into trouble here, and were pinned against the rocks for six grueling days. Harsh winds, and brutal rain pounded The Corps. of Discovery along the mighty Columbia River over 200 years ago.
My overnight stay was much more pleasurable. I was sheltered in my VW bus, protected from the elements. I took advantage of the facilities by dumping my trash, washing my hands and teeth, and cooking on a covered picnic table in grass. Dismal Nitch in WA also features a trail, informative maps, plus plaques about Lewis and Clark. As mentioned in my HD video, you can stay parked for up to 8 hours, but overnight camping, and tenting are not allowed. So keep a low profile, and pick up after yourself. This is an excellent destination for car campers, and travelers on a budget, or just wanting to get away from the static of the city.
I’ve spent the night in my vehicle here maybe six times this summer, and each trip has been a positive experience, and memorable. So it’s Survival Bros tested, and approved. Visit, because it’s probably the only rest area you’ll ever want to take a picture at. Snap a selfie, and post it on Facebook, because I also got great cell phone reception out there. The view of Astoria, and the bountiful river is astonishing, and extremely relaxing. The only cons are lots of lighting in the parking lot, possibly affecting sleepers negatively. The road noise is also noticeable, but luckily the highway is not heavily used. Thanks for supporting my blog! Feel free to comment, like, and share on social networks. Peace and love from the road less traveled.
