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.

That makes me sick after watching, a look after Steven whom loves Ur channel ,Yep is a big dent on the wallet , Steven is disabled and said he would love to be out their and just to walk would be a dream ,a guess what he is , that it is expensive, at least not a attack from bear and survive but with legs useless, how would u cope with that, ? Walking in the water small things like that, but why steal when u do give so much bk to people,ratings say it all, ! The main thing is STAY ALIVE!! SICKIN THAT U CANT EVEN LEAVE THE EQUIPMENT AT UR CABIN THAT SENDS US THE VIDEOS, my respect, by misses j.air on behalf of Stevie ,all the way from Scotland,bless yi..

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! 🙈❤️❣️❤️

@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.

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

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!

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.)

I feel sorry your equipment was stolen. I hope recoup some of the money through your vehicle insurance. Here’s one project you don’t want to film: dig a hole squared out to make a cellar box fit in it with landscaping rocks 5” high at the bottom with small tubes under the rocks to divert the water away then an open top steel box with no other holes is fitted into the hole. This will house your expensive equipment wrapped in a professional water tight bag. For the cover lid use same method as your roof and leaves branches to conceal. Then mount the camera nearby but in all honesty you should have a simple cart sled your retriever can pull to and from the cabin and vehicle.

I know how you feel Shawn, my husband and I were on Vacation and on our way home on the last night at a hotel our back passengers window was broken in and things taken, gifts and souvenirs we bought along the way, we had hidden under a blanket in the SUV, and they took 3 bags of dirty clothes... so weird, I am lucky I took my nice camera in the hotel with me... I wish you luck, we are dealing with insurance now too.. our SUV is almost repaired, we arent getting reimbursed for the stolen items because that falls under home owners insurance, and our deductible is too high... love your videos..and Cali..

That is great news, I'm so happy to hear that. One item that was taken of mine was a ceramic bowl I made with my mom and sisters at a pottery has a very special memory tied to it..and now its gone... but I cant change these things that happen, all we can do is be safer, and protect ourselves better...have a great weekend

Sorry to hear that. Our deductible is high too but the insurance company has agreed to reimburse us if we purchase exactly the same equipment so it's worth it.

Sad to hear Your Wallet and equipment was Stolen CCP CREDIT CARD PROTECTION offers a real good insurance and free copy service for all stolen licenses, cards and permits . All around the planet they provide You with certified copies of all You registered documents there. Got that same "fun" on vacation. And Y o u my very special friend if You read that who stole Shawn's gear, camera wallet and stuff ..may God bless You upon my prayer with hot, painfully Rheumatism in Your hands stealing from a righteous fair and friendly man! Amen. So *better* return his goods quick a f! ! !👌 May be dark window tinting foil an a dark blanket cast over all Your goods you carry on Your backset could help to prevent "opportunities to steal" 😉 Great shots of those bears @17:00 even timelapse and those great Moose too. Amazing to watch!

It's funny that for the most part, friends that I used to be brothers with, who I haven't seen for over 10+ years come back into my life and with a few of them, it's like we're two different people in how we've grown, or not grown, over the years, to the point of not really being compatible anymore.

I live in a small village and if you don't lock it up, store it out of sight it gets stolen. Had a neighbour cut down two curly willow trees of mine, on my property, because she "wanted" the branches. Thieves are beyond low, hope the insurance company comes thru.

This is hear say. Insurance will cover things in your vehicle if it's locked. If left unlocked it's not covered. Like I said this is just hear say. Hope it's wrong buddy.

Amazing people, who's "job" is thieving, are able to sleep. Insurance should pay, of course, and perhaps the next camera will be just as enjoyable for you. I think I'd watch even if you used a phone like me lol. So wonderful to reconnect with lost friends. Blessings ~

Catch the thief. Take him to the deep woods. Handcuff him around the tree and hang a side of smoked bacon over the thief.

I am sure you hv heard comments galore on your theft experience, and I am sorry to hear about it. I just want to comment on the beauty you captured added onto the vid of your friend from years ago that visited you. This was extraordinary of the bears and bird life. That was SO amazing! I can understand your love of the wilds and woods because of your apparent deep love for nature in its purest form. Thank you for sharing.🙏❤️
