My Self Reliance

2 muaj më parë

After months of serious consideration, I have decided to tear down and move on. It's been one of the hardest decisions of my life, but my family and I are convinced it's the right thing to do.

My first comment ever; I'm one of those who's been watching you from the beginning, Shawn. I came across you during a stressful time, and found some solace in watching you work and doing what you do. There's something inexplicably calming about watching someone carefully whittling and carving a simple door handle for the log cabin he built from the ground up all by himself. Truly sorry to hear that neighbors present and future have made it necessary to walk away and start over again. There are over a million and a half of us now who are invested, and quietly cheering for you from all over the world. Keep living your best life; it's an inspiration to us all.

I love watching your adventure, love your homestead and so sorry you had such a difficult time with your neighbor. Wishing you the best life in your new cabin. Iam confused though, I am having a difficult time finding the new build from the old. Can you mark your videos as cabin 1 and cabin 2 or something like that. Thank you for allowing me to live an outdoor experience vicariously through your videos.

Have you thought about innoculating wood with mushrooms? oyster mushrooms even like the cold. I think this might be a good part of sels sustainable nutrition. Out of 1 qubic meter wood you can grow up to 250kg fresh mushrooms over 7 years.

Fascinated! First video and he's tearing it down. What beauty in his cabin, preparing timber, and how sturdy the longhouse was. WHY??! Why is he leaving? Cityots, I've gathered. But why??????

Make sure that this time you check all potential for future access roads and sale of parcels of land that will encroach on yours. May be another goal after your second homestead: an island!

God back to my my main man thought I lost his voyage. So bored with others. You see achievements and the goals of oven making, other buildings such as wood shed outhouse and what was sweet was when the women finally cane to see you. Please help us to watch how you find food not animals but plants and fungus. I love your golden retrievers I had one called White Foot his all four feet white he died and to this day I can’t release my hurt of his death. Seeing your dogs makes me feel he is still with me. I love how you feed you pets. You are a soul that will be reincarnated.

Sir, you are a first class example for me. I am sorry that happened, however the fresh start for a self reliant men should be no trouble, at all. I just hope this new location you chosen is further away from the city (by a lot), since this covid19 thing will likely change some things permanently. I believe the moving countryside phenomenon is not ending soon.

This is the first video I've watched from your channel. Got to say really good content. One thing you said during the explanation irked me a little, why would you unsubscribe because of something like that? surely it would mean there's more interesting content to come with the rebuild? Projects come to completion and starting new ones and moving on to better things is surely more entertaining to watch. Also hope you have better luck with your neighbours in future. Bad neighbours suck!

I have horrible neighbors too so I get it. Wish I could move but id lose alot of money. They and their families and friends have been moving all around my neighborhood, I have them on all sides even in the neighborhood behind me. They have police family and connections who dont help and dont care. They bully me with liud high pitch noises and hack into my debices and tvs. Theyve broken into my house and garage. And on and on..and even mess with my alarm and cameras then they just stoke them.. I could keep going..I haveti tinnitus and headaches and nausea from the weird sound.. And more things..They seem to have many connections including military. The wife would brag that her husband has a very " Large Family" and that they can do whatever they want to anyone including the government and that no one can stop them. I pray they will all get busted and caught red handed and go to jail where they belong. Horrible monsters!

Totally understand your position. I had a cottage near Barrie where factors made staying there unrealistic. Hindsight, it was a good decision. My Self Reliance 2.0 in progress! Opportunity happens yet again. I look forward to the videos. I've been learning a lot. Also curious to know what you will change and why.

Humanity's 3 biggest problems: - Over population - Money - Drugs
upstreamer 16 ditë më parë
The cities might be overpopulated. Today's money is debt. Debt is because FED's monetary system, State and government. All these come from ignorant voters who vote on this corrupt system again and again. Ppl, the voters are ignorant because they can't break free from collectivist mindset programing.

No man is an island. Ultimately humanity is going to invade even the most isolated regions of the planet. You'll move and in a few years planning permission will be given for the construction of new highways and communities. Even if territory looks 'virgin' now it's no guarantee that it will remain that way; State Planning Offices make new decisions every month. Only the moon affords relative isolation but you're going to experience a terrible shortage of trees.

Doing what you're doing is the furthest thing from being a "quitter." Don't let the idiots in the comments discourage you. You're a strong, independent, family-focused man who is doing whatever it takes to keep them safe and secure. You're also doing it because you crave the self-reliance lifestyle. It's all common sense to guys like us but there are many folks who just can't comprehend and probably never will. Fuggedaboutim!
