A Year in the Wilderness | Off Grid and Self Reliant in a Log Cabin

My Self Reliance

6 млн көрүүлөр1 717

    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.

        You have the way of life that I always wanted to have. I admire your intelligence and your strength. I would move to a place like that without even thinking about it and without regretting the decision, despite the winter weather, which many people fear. Today is January 19, 2021 and I have woken up watching this video, without even wondering how long until it ends. For the first time I have felt close to my dream through someone else's dream. Congratulations! Without a doubt, you are an extraordinary person. I live in Las Vegas, Nevada, which is the complete opposite of where you live. Sincere greetings and all my respect and admiration for you. M. Crowe

        This is my dream too, but unfortunately I will not able too. I'm a woman and not very strong one...

      3. Henroozle Feierman

        Came back at the wrong time 😂

      4. eSKAone

        Not self-reliant or off grid, but definitely a cool way of life♥️

      5. eSKAone

        Electricity, gas. This is not self-reliant.

    2. Lynette Ann Hughes

      Could you please make a video of the tools that are used from making fires to chopping and building. Thank you for your time, enjoying every moment.

    3. Luiz Felipe Euflausino dos Santos

      the content is very good, really interesting, but some native trees should not be cut that way it is more interesting to cut pines, but in general the theme is cool.

    4. Jimmi Pagliero

      Old norms is now a dream for most.

    9. Sky Ferra

      this is the dude you rely on to save the campers in horror movies but then gets killed in the next scene

    10. Mercedes Crowe

      Everything in this video is extraordinary.

    11. Mercedes Crowe

      That is the way of life I always wish I had! Away from the bustle of the city and surrounded by nature. I admire the intelligence and strength of this man.

    12. Fernando Neto

      Sou brasileiro e confesso que deu uma enorme vontade de viver como esse amigo. Principalmente por estarmos vivendo num mundo tão desumano e chato.

    13. Michael Thornton

      My God this makes me want to live off the land and build my own home so badly. Men especially these days I think are out of their true element.

    14. Michael Thornton

      So do you ever come across black bears or any other type there? Or do they mostly stay away from you and the noise you make? Personal protection? I see no guns... Do you only fish?

    15. JIM RICK

      HEY...ANY CHANCE I COULD JOIN YOU ON YOUR NEXT ADVENTURE.....???? I AM 82 AND HEALTHY BUT SUFFOCATING IN MY PRESENT SURROUNDINGS...SERIOUSLY....

    16. Sky Ferra

      tools are all a man needs

    17. Mike Osmond

      I'm enjoying these tremendously and I have such envy but in the nicest way possible. I think time takes on a whole new dimension in the wilderness and I enjoy the carefully measured pace at which any of the activities take place. Peace for the soul!

    18. Adrien Pinard

      Just now realizing that he built this place in anticipation of Covid. That must have been nice.

    21. Yeti8it

      What a GOOD pooch

    22. Bradford Thompson

      As a filmmaker, I understand what it takes to film a simple walk through the woods. Especially if you're doing it yourself.

    23. Bdoodee

      Where in Ontario is this? I’ve been from moose factory to Kenora and I’ve never seen hills and valleys like this anywhere in our province!

    24. Bdoodee

      Even the pooch is happier out there in nature. I don’t think there’s a single shot where her tail isn’t wagging.

    25. Omega Woomy

      Its like the book call of the wild

    31. Greenfreak

    32. Andrew Smith

      He just doesn't stop building shit, kind of neat though, he'll have a village soon. Satisfying to watch, but not that fun, I built a log shed for my mower and what a pain.

    33. KmOM ILF

    41. eSKAone

    42. eSKAone

      He built all his clothes and tools himself, also his house and everything in it.

    43. Zahid Nawaz

      just wondering why the wooden poles used in the extension of the hut were partially burnt before erecting them into the ground. Is it to prevent them from insect infestation.

    44. Iago Gomes

      Was he eating Snow in the begining?

    45. Justice Carter

      I wish I could do that

    46. Bilenecmi ünlü

      First of all, I recommend people who live in urban life all over the world to watch this video, it explains very well that self-sufficiency is a life away from technology only with return. They play with the health of people by producing, the only important issue for them is money. I had the opportunity to watch this video, thank you very much.

    47. Roger P

      I have been an avid watcher of both your channels for quite a while,just wondering if you had built in any type of "make-up-air" ducting in your original cabin to maintain a consistent quality and healthy oxygen level in the cabin?
