My Self Reliance

My Self Reliance

3 yıl önce

Another full year in the wilderness living my dream. There is no place I would rather be than in the wilderness, self reliant, thriving in an off grid log cabin and living close to nature. Spring arrived today, and in my mind, it's the beginning of a new year and I reflect on the last 365 days spent building my homestead and creating a safe place for my family and me for times like this. The next 365 days will bring big changes for me and my family as we continue to learn how to and practice becoming more self reliant and put the lessons I have learned over the last three years to use. This year, food security and health are our focus, along with a few building projects that I'll be undertaking alone to make our homestead more self sufficient.
Stay healthy and be kind.

This was amazing. I've struggled with addiction since my early teen years and now at 30 years old, here I am suffering through withdrawal for the literal millionth time yet it never gets any easier. As a young boy my dad was a big outdoorsman and loved taking me and my brother into nature. That's always stuck with me and something like this would be an absolute dream come true yet for years and years I've always been bound to where I am by one thing and that's drugs. Particularly street fentanyl. I've had several very serious close calls with overdose and too many minor ones to count, yet I still can't get away from it. I'd love nothing more than to wake up in a warm and cozy log cabin with a fire going each day, not having to plan my day around making sure I have enough dope each and every day. I haven't taken an actual trip for vacation in many years as I never leave my general area. Watching this video has brought some real peace and comfort to the ridiculous hell I'm experiencing by my own hand and I want to say it was damn beautiful to watch each and every second of it. I felt like I was there with you every step of the way. You remind me so much of my dad, a hardworking man who never asked for a handout or help, always figured things out on his own. I subscribed very quickly

I came across your comment by chance and I want you to know that I’m going to earnestly pray that the chains of your addiction be broken, so you can have a life that you can enjoy instead of one that controls you and bounds you from enjoying the simple things in life. You deserve to be free and I know the one that can help you overcome. Hang in there, it will get better.
@kickinwinghotboi883 4 aylar önce
@Gigi-py6he I sincerely thank you for the kind words and the prayers. Growing up, I was always "against" God and faith in general, but I have several friends and family members who have beaten their addictions through faith and prayer, so that has to mean something. The older I get, the more I begin to believe that maybe my life got so off track was because of my lack of religion and contact with Jesus and God. I've been trying to pray each night, I'm not so good at it and I do sometimes find myself losing hope at times but I push those thoughts to the back of my mind and continue to talk with God. I hope many great things come your way. These days, it's getting harder and harder to find genuinely nice people out there, but you are certainly an exception. Have a blessed day and thank you again

You might have given up everything to build your little cabin in the woods but you have gain what no amount of money can buy.

I am a new subscriber and I've been loving watching your videos lately because they give me the same sense of peace that I feel when I'm out at my cabin. Even though I live in the country there is something completely different that I feel and crave when it comes to actually being out in the middle of nowhere! My family owns 100 acres in south western NY where we hunt and spend many weekends at. In the last few years I've built a tiny cabin with the help of my dad and my grandfather. There is just something about being out in nature and being self reliant that brings this amazing peacefulness that I can't seem to find anywhere else. I love seeing Cali in your videos and I also love the one of you and your daughter camping together. Your cabin came out amazing and I look forward to watching more of your videos! :)

It all looks beautiful & very sturdy. i'm mesmerized by the shear will & of course strength & your skill. How proud you must be knowing you can truly survive without the rat race we've all turned our once peaceful life into. Everything's absolutely wonderful. I hope you remain there and fully enjoy all you've accomplished. I can't imagine leaving it to return to a city. You have created a paradise. May God Bless You. I'll be watching as I'm a new fan! 🇺🇸🙏

I wish you would take a few minutes and introduce your dog, your wife and kids, and explain how all of this has worked for them and you. You believe that fewer words are obviously better however a few words of introduction would go a long way. Thanks a million. Fred in Idaho

Shawn: I am watching this episode on a Saturday morning (3/21/20), and have to save the second half of this wonderful review of the 2019 seasons. I cannot best describe my appreciation for the enormous effort that you put into this presentation. Having been a professional videographer (National Specialty Dog Shows) for over 20 years, I know what this work represents. The color-composition-sounds-music-and capturing those special moments of the year with Cali are OVER THE TOP. The Fall segment starting in September is particularly spectacular. I felt like I was living the experience with you. I'm saving the second half for tomorrow morning over a great cup of coffee to celebrate 2019 with you. THANK YOU, and give Cali a BIG SMOOCH from Mike & Ronnie. GOD BLESS

Just found your channel . I've been watching this video for the last 2+hrs and am so impressed I had to comment. The wilderness views, the music, your day to day work, the gentle dog, is all amazing. I grew up in Appalachia and it reminds me of old timers that lived as you, where I was playing in the hills and creeks, seeing the wildlife. I'm thankful I was blessed in that way. Since I've gotten older (now living in Africa) I realize the secret to life is to live as simply, independently, and peacefully as possible. Thank you good sir, I'm gladly subscribing.

Marc, 4whatever is worth. This has been a major burp, but life will go on. Yes, there will be an economic impact but we will recover. I'm glad we left the big city 🏙 if you haven't done so, perhaps this is something you should seriously consider. Whether ur married or single, cities are no place to be when SHTF. I'm not a prepper but live outside the big city. Use your resources wisely, keep ur head about and simplify ur life. Also, disengage from news outlets for a while. Go to a 🏞 or to a quiet trail and breathe.. ♡

Do something to keep occupied...look for open university courses, for example. Watch videos and learn something you’ve always been curious about. I read a post somewhere from a person living in an apartment building....the residents are cooking large meals and having group meals, getting acquainted. They posted in the lobby area things that they have extra of, and things that are needed. Someone bought a 40lb bag of rice and offered to share. Offer to fix things for neighbors, lead a group to start window gardens using empty jars and cans...sweet potatoes are great for that! Start a compost bin for foods. And connect to your friends and family via Skype or something if you can’t get together.

You are truly a man of the earth and Mother Nature, it was wonderful watching you using the old ways and being one with the earth. All the videos of all those trees and sunsets and the rising sun, truly took my breath away! I could feel the drops of water falling from the leaves, I could smell the autumn breeze and so much more! I felt as if I was truly there! When I seen the trees across the river it reminds me of my trips to Canada. I really needed this, thank you so very much!

Hi Shawn. What can be said over and above all that has been said of a man that has shown the world that there is so much more to life than what most of us go through every day? All I can say is that besides having a great amount of respect and admiration for you, I envy you in more ways than you can imagine. I take my hat off to you and thank you for sharing your life with all of us. You and your beautiful dog have crept into the hearts of so many people let alone mine. I wish I could have shared some of these times with the two of you. What a life! Thank you again for sharing the endless beauty of nature and how we should be living in it. May you go from strength to strength and completely live out your dream. Thank you so much!

I understand what your channel is about now. It’s about peace. It’s about self-reliance. For over a year now I’ve been watching your channel. It’s made me appreciate nature, hard work, solitude, man’s best friend. It’s about capturing the sounds of nature. Crackling of the fire. Chopping wood. The sounds of a river. It’s about appreciating an accomplished project. when I go to bed I put on your videos. And I listen to the sounds. Listening to the loons. The hammering of nails building something. You’re literally changing my life, and I know that sounds weird. Maybe I should say it in a different way. You’re helping me change my life. Thank you.

好棒的建造技術和生存技能,森林獨居生活這部份真令人嚮往。感謝製作影片讓喜愛這種生活的人欣賞。(Great construction technology and survival skills, the part of living alone in the forest is really desirable. Thanks for making videos for those who love this life to enjoy.)

Watching this Is such a pleasure, Shawn. I love your editing, your captures, and the music you chose is really touching and beautiful. You could sell your talents, you know. Especially nowadays, gas money is important.

I don't think this is relatable- but for some reason watching this dude makes me want to play minecraft and do the same thing hes doing, just spawn in a snowy taiga biome and build a log cabin and stuff. That would be so cool. You make awesome vids

Witaj. Postanowiłam napisać w swoim języku, polskim. Dziękuję za każdą chwilę, z którą się dzielisz..to nam ukazuje, że życie to film z jedną różnicą,w życiu to my jesteśmy głównymi bohaterami, ale też scenarzystami, reżyserami,scenografami oraz oświetleniowcami, jednym słowem Jesteśmy rzemieślnikami wszystkiego..

This guy is most definitely switched on. He’ll be one of the few who is ready for the big re set. Nobody will want to be near civilisation when that hits. Preparation is the key my friend, and your well ahead of the game. Stay focused buddy because when 2025 comes you’ll be glad you did.

When they ask me what it means to be rich, I answer: living in an off-grid wooden cabin by the lake, fishing and being self-sufficient. Here is my dream that I could not realize, you sir have made my dream come true, congratulations and thank you.
