      Cali is such a good girl, she just loves being with you, no matter where that is. Thank you for sharing your journey with us!

    5. tim krause

      I've just discovered your "off grid" video's and enjoy watching them very much. You go into very interesting detail on "how to do it yourself" projects. I can watch these for hours. Thank you for sharing your "work style" and photo's /video's of "cabin life". Just wonderful!

    6. Sakahex

      Damn dude I am more than a week awake now

    7. MuzzSader

      I clicked on this vid as soon as I saw Cali's name lol. Love her!!

    8. Idalia Torres

      do you have combination of rain and thunder and lake or sea water sound?

    9. John de Jong

      I knew I recognized the campsite you were staying on. I was an interior ranger in APP the past summer, this was one campsite that I just so happened to do some maintenance on

    10. Al Hartford

      Such a smart move cleaning your fish a good distance away from your camp, some people might not know why you did that, but you and I both know that the last thing you would want is a beer or other wild animals coming into your camp after those fish entrails I am so envious of you living your dream. I wish you, your wife and family Long life and happiness!

      一個人出去露營⛺️會不會太無聊、太單調了、怎麼不跟家人一起、跟你出去不怕沒東西吃、你會打獵、釣魚、現在又吃到新鮮的魚、真好 祝你中、晚餐愉快

      سلام الله عليك

    23. Sally in CT

      Love your videos!!! Very calming and Cali is a Super Awesome dog!!! However, there’s a sadness comes over me for you that these most beautiful times and experiences would be better sharing them with your loved one. I wish that for you!!! I’ve been on many a trip alone and my heart always longed for my loved one to see and feel the beauty of what I was experiencing. I know it’s none of my business but my heart hurts knowing you and your wife are at that early retirement stage and you BOTH should be living these things together.

    24. Michael Collins

      This is by far the best video production. Cali Is an absolute Star. Thank you for a video worth watching.

    25. Al Cruze

      It is sitting in a canoe with man's best buddy and myself in my mind enjoying all that beautiful scenery...Thank You !!

    26. Darrell Roeters

      Now that’s a great trip. Nice big bass. See you cleaned the fish away from camp. Tell me you let Cali in the tent with you at night?

    27. Enrique Ojeda

      Muy buen video, hermoso lugar . . . lo disfrute. Saludos desde Santiago de Chile

      Good stuff! I thoroughly enjoyed this video and will probably watch it again. Congratulations for following your heart...for following your dream, my friend!

    33. Jena Emerald

      Isn’t Cali’s whole life a camping trip? Ive never seen such an ideal life for a hunting dog. She only looks sad when you won’t stop working to play fetch

    34. Roberto Hernandez

    37. Iron Man

      Man you are my rest after hard day... love watching, all the best!

    38. Radiogram & Gramophone toons

      There’s that sound again, which bird or animal is that at nighttime ?

    39. Kevin Rennert

      Thank you for allowing me to share in your journey, wherever that may be. Just simply the best of times... God Bless

      Is he allowed to cut those trees because he owns that land or for another reason?

    46. S. Maskell

      Pretty sure Cali was thoroughly dry only in the wake up shot.

    47. Dixie Ten Broeck

      Um, duplicate video footage as in the "Cali's 1st Overnight Canoe Trip" video? That's all right; enough differences that each is very watchable. Just odd.

    48. Joshua White

      i thought after he un tied the bag from the tree, he was going to pull out medusa's head!

      Excelente videos.Hermosos paisajes.Saludos desde Paraguay.

    57. Jeff Nielsen

      The paddle is a canoe handle. Was that a partridge in a pine tree? A nice little camp site. I love to see a dog relax. Mosquitoes? Shawn rolls up a tent like I do. Push the air out the door.

    58. Iris Perez

      Cali should use life jackets too, you never know what might happen in the lake

    59. Raiden Moon

      I watch your videos and literally have a flood of memories. I’ve spent a lot of my life on the lakes of the Canadien shield. Mostly Sask., and Alberta. This amongst all your other videos has become nothing less then art to me. I think I need a Indiana Jones hat and a lot of land..... this has become my goal. God Bless.

    60. Iris Perez

      5:25 it's a beautiful picture, bello lugar... Cali te amo

    61. Robert Ottwell

      She had a great time my logs love to sleep in the tent.

    63. John Laccohee-Joslin

      Hi Sawne, i really like the music about three quarters through i think its both banjo and guitar but really is catchy and soothing. Building the cabin is important but i ghink also these trips away once in a while are good for the soul . Cali really likes the freedom, by the way who snorz? There is one thing that has got me really thinking, that is the build of the canoe you use in this video, it has the look of a birch canoe but clearly is planked, i really would like so details on it as it is nice and sturdy but clearly light as well , just wondered if you had the plans or know where i can get them from as this is just the type i have been looking for. Really lovely spot for camping a whole lake to yourself!! Stay safe, all the best.

    64. Jenny May

      Wish I was there, what beautiful scenery. Love Cali..

    65. Kathy McDowell

      14:35 Nice fish! Definitely a keeper

    66. Joseph Papale

      I thought you gave cali people food. I would always cook for Max. I guess I spoiled him.

    67. Joseph Papale

      Cali is in her glory, I dont think you can find a happier dog.

    68. Joseph Papale

      What a beautiful view what state are you in.

    69. gervasio rossini

      Dont understand why the tent meaning for children?!?! Thumbs up for cali, she such a good girl.

    70. Cheryl Staples

      To have heaven on earth, all to yourself with your best friend....i am PEA GREEN with envy!!!

    71. Isaac Brandewie

      Ain’t nothing like getting away from the hustle and bustle of the cabin to get back to nature in a tent ;)

    72. Ashandy Chegevara

      What bird is singing in the beginning?

    73. Darth Nihilus

      37:10 What's the name of the animal??

    74. Thomas Little

      What type of person would dislike this video? Clearly people who have their notifications on and just hit dislike. This is another example of what is wrong with our society. Maybe get off your computer go for a walk and get out from under your parents wings.

    75. Carol Burns

      Thankful for your channel

    76. George Ramos

      Yo my friend I think that your doing the right thing with your dog as your dog companion and Please accept it as your partner and Please don't let him or her feel like they're not with you during the things that you're doing. But Please don't call me lazy cause I do what I have to do to keep things going the way that will keep me doing for the family ok.

      Takes me back to many trips to Algonquin, often beginning with a run down the Tim River. I'm too old now and have no partner to keep me safe. Watching this brought me along. Skillful videography, thank you so much.

    84. Annie Viera

      Shawn you're a real loner considering your wife's with you now. I would've liked seeing her with you more often and actual communications between the two of you.

    85. Bud Jacobson

      Awesome show beautiful camp site so peaceful

    86. Scott Beisel

      My fiancé and I just got a golden puppy. She’s 10 weeks now. We do a lot of canoe camping. When did you start Cali in the canoe and in the water?

    87. 武田章

      It's Awesome!

    88. J.A.R. Family

      I have zero interest to live like you choose. But man I respect and absolutely love your lifestyle. It's so peaceful. Good for you and your family.


      I am behind on your videos and catching up brings me to this one. I am a youtuber and have been struggling with finding motivation to keep getting out there. I think i forget to enjoy being out in nature and it becomes more of a chore to film and produce content. This video has sparked something in me that I haven't felt for quite a while. Thank you for sharing this and all of the other great work that you do.
