Default Really good U-tube off-grid channel

I watched 11 of his "making a cabin from scratch videos". The guy goes into full detail. Seems like a really great person as well. Locked and loaded!

have you seen "Alone in the Wilderness" I believe that is what it was called. this guy went to Alaska and built his home up there and it is now a monument. I watched a couple a years ago in VA. I was impressed on how this guy built his cabin.

I want to say it was in the 50's or 60's time frame.
it was Dick Proenneke. this guy was an amazing craftsman.

I did see the previews posted online. Have not purchased the series.

The site I posted above goes into more detail. He covers equipment, land management, tree trimming so larger trees survive, ram pump building, water tower construction etc.

I haven't purchased them either but what I saw was amazing. you have to admit the man was a great craftsman in his own right.

I wasn't trying to threadjack but the title of your thread reminded me of him.

Awesome, thanks for the post.

Hoping to buy a plot of land somewhere near Sagle, ID and build a small cabin myself.

Careful, there are a group of thieves driving around stealing small cabins. The link I posted had his cabin stolen.

WTF?! Why the hell would someone do that? I'll watch the video, maybe I'll find out.

But in any case, I hope that wouldn't happen to me. My plan (when I actually make the move) is to live on-site in a wall tent as I build my cabin. I would hope that no one would have the audacity to steal as I live on-site.

Thanks! Just subscribed, any other youtube channel suggestions? I've recently gotten into checking out the channel content on youtube, I never realized how much stuff was on there!
