Van Dwelling Chevy Astro Setup with Items Listed on HD Video

By Cameron McKirdy

See what car living is like for a gypsy travelling on the road in HD video.  I think he has a great gear setup for van dwelling.  I’m jealous of his sink, with a clever gravity fed water system, harnessing an inexpensive solar shower.  Plus, his lighting setup works, and didn’t cost much, thanks to a trip to Dollar Tree.  You can’t tell Hugh is in there either, since it’s a cargo van without side rear windows.  The dark exterior paint color blend into the darkness, making him more stealth.  I like what he has done to insulate the metal sides with cardboard and aluminum tape.  Hugh knows the cardboard is organic material, and will eventually decompose, but it’s easy to replace with fresh insulation later.  Even the interior wall panels are stuffed with recycled shopping bags for added warmth.  We list all of the car camping items for you to spark your imagination, but is there anything you’d add to the recreational vehicle?  More van dwelling videos on the way.  Stay tuned to Survival Bros.  

FOX 12 Good Day Oregon – Professional Eaters

By Cameron McKirdy

Watch my brother Andrew McKirdy and I display our professional eating techniques on LIVE TV!  This “On The Go with Joe” segment was produced by KPTV Fox 12 for Good Day Oregon.  We were promoting the BBQ and Brewfest “Smokin’ at The Ocean” which featured The World Rib Eating Championship held my Major League Eating in Lincoln City at Chinook Winds Casino.   

We had a blast representing for our city Seaside, Oregon.  This was shown across the state, and Southwest Washington.  We had to wake up around 4 A.M. to get camera ready.  Mainly, I just had to put pink gel in my mohawk.  It looked like a rib, and I thought it would bring me great fortune in the eating contest.  I ended up putting down nearly 4 pounds of succulent rib meat in 12 minutes, beating Andrew by a narrow margin respectively.  I entered this Championship 3 times.  I was paid $100 to do this interview, and another radio show on 1190 KEX.  Plus, I scored a free hotel suite for a few nights, and a handful of buffet passes.  I was ranked #45 on Earth in competitive eating.  Keep that in mind next time you invite me over to your house.  I will eat all your food, and tell you it was about to go bad.  More soon.  Thanks for visiting my absurd blog.
