My Self Reliance

    #logcabin #bushcraft #offgrid #survival
    One man leaves the city life behind to build a cheap off grid log cabin and homestead in the Canadian wilderness, including a log home, an outdoor kitchen, an outhouse, a woodshed and a sauna bathhouse. Building mostly with hand tools, Shawn James harvests building materials from the forests north of Toronto, Canada and crafts them into functional tools and shelters using traditional woodworking tools and methods. He practices bushcraft and survival skills every day, including fire starting, tree identification and harvesting, wild edible foraging, fishing, hunting, camping in the summer and winter, travelling by canoe and snowshoe, navigation and water collection and purification.
    Continue watching in 2019 as Shawn finishes the sauna, plants a forest garden for fruit and vegetables, builds an underground root cellar, ice house and cheese cave, a timber frame workshop and a remote hunt camp closer to fish and game.

      And after two years later when coming back to city You can clearly see how many idiots living around You. How many people are lost how many of them have smashed brains

      This video is simply amazing. I have a thousand questions for you. Please excuse me if any question may be incomprehensible but here in Italy such a thing might not be possible if not buying an existing chalet. First of all, did you buy the land where you built everything? Is it possible to buy such a large piece of forest in Canada? How did you learn all those wood carving techniques? I saw that you have no electricity, how do you recharge the photographic equipment?

A FELICIDADE NÃO PRECISA DE SER IGUAL AOS OUTROS , CADA UM PROCURA-A ONDE ACHA MELHOR , EU ERA CAPAZ DE ME DAR ASSIM SOZINHO ERA UM POUCO DIFÍCIL , MAS COM O TEMPO PODIA ACOSTUMAR-ME , COM O COMPANHEIRO SEMPRE DE GUARDA É UMA BOA CARABINA , ESTAVA TUDO BEM SENÃO DESSE CERTO PODIA IR LÁ QUANDO QUISER. VIDA BOA É ESTA , SEM BARULHOS , SEM GUERRA SÓ TRANQUILIDADE , NOS PAZ UM BOM COMPANHEIRO SEMPRE FIEL , BOA COMIDA .

      I followed all the videos with passion. As I am French I had to watch with the machine translation and unfortunately it was not possible. I didn't understand why Shawn stopped everything in his project and why he demolished everything? If anyone could give me the reason I thank them in advance. This situation saddened me a lot

    55. Elizeu Rodrigues

      Bom filme, bem montado e bem elaborado, nota-se pela tecnologia pra filmar, câmeras aéreas, de todas as formas e posições difíceis. Não têm como acreditar que não teve ajuda de uma grande equipe. Mas a idéia que tenta nos passar é de uma incrível aventura, apesar de não me enganar nem um pouco, carrinho de roda, plásticos, lonas e placas metálicas já remetem à nossa tecnologia atual e também uma ajudinha pra sobrevivência e facilitação de construção mas mesmo assim é difícil pois usa trabalho manual, precisa de grande conhecimento e realmente é uma incrível paisagem. Mas nada que eu também não conseguiria, já que podemos usar essas mesmas ferramentas... Mas o vídeo é Top.

    56. Drajad Wiryawan

      Make me think of something happened in the next year ... Thank you for the Video

      Inacreditável!!! Sou novo por aqui, mas já ganhou um seguidor fiquei aqui me imaginando neste cenário maravilhoso, você o cão e a exuberante natureza. Gosto muito de acampar está dentro da natureza, aqui no Brasil em especial no meu estado "Minas Gerais" sempre que posso dou uma fugidinha da vida agitada e vou para a floresta cachoeira passar um final de semana, mas o Shawn James passou dois invernos. Muito bacana, genial parabéns pelo belíssimo trabalho. Blessed be !

    91. DirtyHairyBrownAsshole TuckedIntoAnEggSaladSandwich

      What I'd like to know is why Shawn James continued shaving his beard off when he's living alone out in the wilderness in - 25° temperatures! edit: Ah, finally - in March 2019 - he has a beard.
