    #offgrid #logcabin #friends
    Someone broke into my truck and stole my expensive camera and wallet. After dealing with restoring my identity with new cards to replace everything in my wallet, an old friend and his wife visit me at my log cabin, bearing gifts. I've been spending more time away from my off grid homestead than normal, and I explain why and how that caused the theft of my camera gear. Gone is a Canon 1DX, Manfrotto tripod, Oakley sunglasses and more.

      Hate a thief with a passion. Not a good person.


      SOOO Very sorry to hear you got your valuables stolen... that's a shame!! * I pray that God will prick the conscience of the thief as each day passes... and he she or they will bring them ALL back to you... in Jesus name. Shawn you have a heck of a LOT of talents and capabilities... ha... I guess that's why you call yourself SELF RELIANT.. HA!! 😁 * Keep your chin up and may God keep you and your family out there in the wilderness. 🙄😁🤔 You do such GREAT WORK ! 🙄

      If you purchased it with a credit card there is often insurance through card company. Worth checking out. Sorry to here about the theft. It’s such an awful feeling. Best wishes.

      Where can I get your hat!?!?

    17. Ron Williams

      Sorry that crap happened hope he gets caught or struck by lightning

    18. Jay Dixon

      Lol if they did take everything from your truck, you would certainly be experiencing some "self" reliance.

      1. Jay Dixon

        Ive had my truck broke into also. Thank the good Lord my wallet wasn't in it. They only took the strereo and cd's and such. Still makes me angry and if I'd have caught them, it wouldn't be pretty.

      2. Jay Dixon

        sorry I wasn't making fun or anything, just trying to lighten it a bit.

    19. Tiffany Harvey

      I hate that bad people stole from you but your positive attitude is highly encouraging. ❤

    20. Anarchy Fox

      Man I hates thieves they gets my sjambok beating if I catches em 🐾🐺👍💢

    21. Odee Dillon

      Over $10k Canadian in personal items stolen. Not sure about Ontario, but that's a felony in the USA.

    22. David Stepeck

      Shawn, The loss of property you worked hard to earn is the worst feeling in the world. You think "what gives you the right to steal something I worked hard for?" Not to mention that feeling of being violated. Search for your items on Ebay, Marketplace and Craiglist, the police will also do that for you. Best of luck and keep living the dream!

    23. newyork usa

      sorry to hear that, Camera&wallet i wish i can help you,,,

    24. Sean Wert

      A fat rendering video would be cool Shawn. Just to see how YOU do it and what you do with it. Sorry to hear about your equipment. Love your videos and really appreciate what you do. Keep it up man!

      Don't apologize for making the wonderful Alaska videos! Videos of that quality are always a joy to watch. A little variety also helps keep you channel very interesting. Thanks and keep up the excellent work! Sorry to hear about the scummy thieves!

    30. The Raven

      Dont set up cameras.Set up traps!

    31. Level3-RC

      Big lesson learned. This is a lesson you should have already learned at a much younger age. My car stays clean and nothing showing.

    44. Richard Apt

      How did you get so close to these animals. The grizzly mother and her cubs footage is exceptional.

    45. K.N.V.B

    51. Lettie’s Life

      UGH! I’m so sorry your personal stuff was stolen! Even tho they say a liar is worse than a thief...I think I’d rather be lied to 😣 Your editing is so beautiful! Cabin is amazing. I have a cabin in the woods, too. Life at its finest is spent best in the woods 🙌🏼 Loads of Love, Light & Insurance coverage! 🙈❤️❣️❤️

      Geçmiş olsun dostum

    54. Sam Ba

      With the cost of ammo increasing no warning shots will be given. is the sign you need.

    55. Colleen Garcia

      what do you call those big horn animals ?

    56. E H

      Thank you for this video! I loved seeing the animals just living their lives in their natural habitat. So simple, so beautiful, so overwhelming.

    57. Jenny Kirchner

      The wildlife footage - priceless, thank you!

    58. Jenny Kirchner

      Onwards and upwards. So excited to hear you and your wife's future plans at the cabin. Awesum

      Well you don’t need no friends like that, sorry sometimes friends let you down and we never understand why, Jenni

    61. Vaskedama

      @MY Self Reliance I am wondering about how you went about sourcing your property. I ask because I have an interest to start moving in the same direction as your self. Not to the same degree, but at least get something going.

    62. h34p

      always hide a gps tracker in your camera-backpack. easy to do, costs pretty much nothing and make everything easier.

    63. Carter Adams

      Oh man I’m so sorry. Had a camera snatched a couple months ago, it’s a terrible feeling. Hope you’re able to recoup some of the costs and are doing alright.

    64. pamula wallace

      Sorry to hear about your loss a real bummer!!!

    65. Robert Davies


    66. simon freeman

      Sad to think someone would steal form lifes nice folk, but unfortunately thieves do not discriminate. Otherwise good to see your back at cabin, and great pics as usual.

    67. angielou123

      Karma always pays back.

    68. Gail Forest

      That's a sick feeling when you're victimized. So sorry.. Hope the insurance will replace it... So bright side, Your getting a new camera, and maybe a new lock box to store the good stuff in.. I dream of camera equipment like yours. I can imagine the anger when you found the break in. Sorry Shawn.. Love your videos of Alaska and everything else you share with us. I need some sage the way! It helps with mosquitoes!

    69. mnm I stand for my flag

      No matter the country , thieves should be subjected to capital punishment . PERIOD!!!

    70. nationwyde1

      I thought you were going to tell us a humorous story about wildlife dragging off your gear. But so sorry to know it was a human that did it! Apparently, they must have needed it more! (We say that to feel better.)
