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.  

Jake The Alligator Man at Marsh’s Free Museum in Long Beach Washington

Filmed by Cameron McKirdy for FUN!

Look at the freaky half-man, half-reptile oddity…..Jake The Alligator Man on display in HD video.  Filmed in Long Beach, Washington at Marsh’s Free Museum.  It’s a wonderful tourist trap.  I viewed all of the oddities, and purchased some incense.  Don’t forget to visit them, and ask for your free sea shell.  It’s a gift for showing up.  Please subscribe to this blog by entering your email address, like the post for a brother, and comment if you’re a friend of Jake.  Do you think HE’S real?  Could he be the missing link, or a crazy hoax for the tabloid newspapers?

Safeway Parking Lot Car Camping Experience in Astoria Oregon

By Cameron McKirdy

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.  More van dwelling videos, and tips on our emergency preparedness blog http://www.survivalbros.com

Double Rainbow in Seaside Oregon at The Beach HD Video 2014

By Cameron McKirdy

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.  For more adventures, car camping videos, and product reviews visit http://www.survivalbros.com

Oregon Coast Elk Herd on Gearhart Oregon Beach 2014 HD

By Cameron McKirdy – Survival Bros. Founder

I saw this amazing elk herd when I drove to Del Rey Beach in Gearhart, Oregon.  I parked my Volkswagen Vanagon in the lot, grabbed my HD camera, and snuck up on them all.  I came from the beach, and quietly walked through tall grass from behind to get the shot.  I hope you enjoy my footage.  This is raw news produced for our alternative news community – Survival Bros.  It’s not everyday Mother Nature allows us to see beauty on Earth like this.  Experience it.  Peace and love.
