Two Years Alone in the Wilderness | Escape the City to Build Off Grid Log Cabin

Two Years Alone in the Wilderness | Escape the City to Build Off Grid Log Cabin

#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.

    Man, you are something else. I don’t know what else to say. One of the most entertaining videos I have ever seen…. with less than 10 words spoken no less!

  7. Pro Coll on November 25, 2021 at 2:37 pm

  15. IdeaBoxful on November 25, 2021 at 2:52 pm

    Isnt it amazing to know, that men and women used to live like this with even lesser tools. It required ingenuity and survival skills. Life would have been hard physically and many modern amenities like medical care etc.. was not available. But it would defenitely be more theraputic to do so for a short period of time nowadays.

  16. Ricardo julio guerrero puente on November 25, 2021 at 2:54 pm

    want and industrious man and video, loved it Sir, you are so talented.

  17. CosinusFi49 on November 25, 2021 at 2:54 pm

    A beautiful story. But why are there so many boards?

  18. demonhalo67 on November 25, 2021 at 2:54 pm

    When I think of Canada I think of log cabins, stoves, one man, and an axe; not so much the hustle and bustle of Toronto. Greetings from UK.

  19. Deaths Door on November 25, 2021 at 2:55 pm

    My backs sore just watchin’ this M’fer.

  20. Michal Dudek on November 25, 2021 at 2:57 pm

  21. Yine Bir Gün on November 25, 2021 at 2:57 pm

  23. Rita Ribeiro Moreira Rodrigues on November 25, 2021 at 2:59 pm

    Eu adoraria morar nesse paraíso, mas não só. E muito bom, na hora que quer comer vai buscar no lago, que fartura

  24. Suzy Ab on November 25, 2021 at 3:00 pm

    Nossa nem uma coberta esse cara coloca pro seu peludo,

  25. Earl Jackson on November 25, 2021 at 3:02 pm

    this is not 2 years alone in the wilderness. Sorry.

  26. Colhoun Clan on November 25, 2021 at 3:03 pm

    Eu amo esses vídeos, é maravilhoso.
    Cada dia é uma surpresa.

  29. Swer νe on November 25, 2021 at 3:05 pm

    i wish it was as easy as just going out and doing this but for the average guy youd most likely be trespassing or on public land and get run off eventually. love the video though just wish it was as somthing i could do

  30. Gildo Soppelsa on November 25, 2021 at 3:05 pm

    Prima di parlare di formazione aspettiamo quando parte la partita 😬😷

  31. Yannick on November 25, 2021 at 3:06 pm

    Love it! learned alot! Now i have a tip for you, use a rope to cut trough the snow on the roofs, it should slide right off.

  32. Nur Lu on November 25, 2021 at 3:07 pm

    👍💯👍💪🐕🧿 🧿

  33. Ellen Levenson on November 25, 2021 at 3:10 pm

    It just doesn’t get better than that. You’ve harnessed what Earth offers us. Amazing strength, endurance, knowledge and skill. Congratulations. You win at life.

  34. Phillip Jameson on November 25, 2021 at 3:13 pm

    Not a single word spoken, and yet the best documentary I’ve ever seen.

  35. Jim.B on November 25, 2021 at 3:14 pm

    This is a guy that snapped. In a good way

  36. trafalgarssn on November 25, 2021 at 3:14 pm

    Admiration from me in the UK. Just subscribed 🙂

  37. Sean Edwards on November 25, 2021 at 3:15 pm

    This was pretty good, but it needs more explosions.

    Attempt to transcend.Proud of you.

  39. Nels Nelson on November 25, 2021 at 3:16 pm

    Sensational . I really wanted to be there. Congratulations !..

  40. k w on November 25, 2021 at 3:16 pm

    Zazdrosze PSU chciałabym być na jego miejscu

  41. Alexander Mueller on November 25, 2021 at 3:22 pm

    A very well done video. Professional! Respect. Nevertheless, allow me to point out one more thing. Wood breaks relatively quickly when it comes into contact with earth. The hut would be much more durable if it were to stand on stones. Just as a little tip from Northern Bavaria – Germany

  42. Jeffrey Eaves on November 25, 2021 at 3:23 pm

    Not buying ot

  43. Suzy Ab on November 25, 2021 at 3:23 pm
