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.

You're a better man than me Shawn. 10 grand is a huge loss. I really hope that you do get some money back. Your videos really help me out. I've been having a very hard time relaxing my mind. Your channel has really helped me out with that. I hope that you do read this sometime. I've learned a ton from watching. Thank you👍🏻🙂

In this day we are not safe, I can remember leaving back doors open and not even worrying about it and no one came in, now we must always lock up everything including car. Am sorry you had to go through all of this. The people who stole will not profit in the end! Just always lock up well. Alarms and cameras are the best ideas.

I am trying to recover from a vile theft. Someone...from my neighbours, stole a lot of my stuff I had ,tools,many personal things. I am heartbroke,I got sick literally. I cannot replace them ,and I am so dissgusted. I know that there were neighbours because they took their time going through my things,they came more than once...and I live in a forest,in the mountains,in a village. I live here for allmost 30years,and the villagers hate us all,and they behave badly towards all of us who bought land here. It's my country and I'm not going to accept that behaviour but still....I'd move in a deep forest,far from this kind of people.

One more quick comment, I love your video's, thank you so much for sharing. Also, I love the retriever, such a pretty dog. And one hell of a good dog for a family pet. I had one years ago and she was such a great pup, always so happy and lovable, seems to be good company as you build your projects!!!

Shawn, I'm so sorry for your loss. Liars and thieves are the lowest. I hope you can get your things back, or at least get some kind of reimbursement. That was a hard hit to take. As stated earlier in the comments, nice to get away from all the people like this and live in the solidarity that you seem to enjoy so much, as well all do watching you carve your way into that goal.

Being at the cabin has relaxed your guard. I can see that happening. No burglars or thieves in the woods. Humans. Sorry that happened to you. It's really the pits replacing all your ID's, canceling credit cards etc.

Unfortunately, after dealing with thieves, you have to deal with more thieves (insurance companies). I hope things improve for you. 👍🏻

Why on earth would you leave your wallet and other valuables in your car? Did you at least have them covered up? We are way ahead of you in the city! Leaving good stuff lying around is just asking for it.

Like my boxing coach used to tell me "Son always keep your guard up" I didn't realize that at the time as a young man but that also implied to real life not just in the ring.

That’s disgraceful! I hope the insurance company pay out for all your losses. I can see you are emotional! You work so hard, and don’t deserve that. You need to hide your stuff better in the truck if you leave it in there! So sorry dude.

Sometimes it seems as if there is incessant talk about human rights but there is little talk about the right not to be robbed.

Hi Shawn. Dang, that way sucks. I'm so sorry that happened. My boss (who is super cool) had his truck broken into, and they stole his golf clubs. I don't understand that mentality. I really don't. I'm glad you're able to keep such a positive attitude. Pardon my French, but I'm sitting here all pissed off, now. On a lighter note, I really love your channel! I've been subscribed for a couple of years, now. Please keep doing what you're doing. Cali rocks! :) :) :)

Theft shpuld be held to a high form of punishment. Considering what the affect is.

Thieves in God’s Country? Wait a minute, God’s Country has no gates. And I might add; thieves are everywhere bc they know that good people work hard for what valuables they will have. Bum feeling without a doubt. It happened to my cousin: 3 cameras & additional equipment. Myself as well. A thick gold chain w/ an awesome gold medallion [$10,000]. If one ever goes to Barcelona, be extremely careful. Pick pocket Pros. It happened to my brother in Italy. Wallet & quite a bit of $$. Bummer.
