They got my channels and pages all shutdown. It is so unfair. Sending you loads of light and positive intention. What I have learned from challenges, is that it always elevates us. Stay strong...

  • Envy is a nasty thing. In life, some people become so jealous that they have to try and wreck it for you. You're fine until you do something. Then people become so envious that they hate you. It's not your fault, rather, it's a deficit in their character. Sorry you're experiencing this.

You never know which of your neighbours will be a SELLOUT ! Having a youtube channel sometimes comes with a heavy price. Thank You for your videos that inspired many. Going off grid is not encouraged by these tyrants at power let's not forget that. May God bless you for your next endeavour and the rest of your journey. Cheers 🙏

  • im sure youre not perfect yourself, and you put yourself online with millions of views/ 250k+ subs, and you make tons of money from it, and its a career. you basically broadcast your life for years, and include your family, then act offended that someone would take it personally. or look at you or your family in any way you don't deem acceptable, TBH the real reason you are doing it is to try to capture lightning in a bottle again by repeating the process, but won't happen.

  • All due respect I like the videos you got mad skills but with that being said this reason why you're moving that's just a little fishy to me it's probably because you built the cabin on government land or maybe someone else's land was someone who just purchased the land the only reason why you be dismantling that cabin you don't want to be discovered and now someone's moving in and you don't want to be discovered so that's why you're dismantling it and now that you went viral on KGworld you got the means to buy your own property where you're building your new cabin on I mean it only makes sense obviously you didn't do by yourself you got your camera guy too and you skip out a lot of the construction which is all good because I'm just looking at what you did here as inspiration except I wouldn't use that same scenario story like the reason why you moving out of there I wouldn't even bring that up anyways good luck to you

  • Hey Shawn, thank you for your consistency and energy giving all your heart in such a character in this life changing goal. The hour long cinematic videos you upload are awesome, it is inspiring and deeply moving, just by watching nature, it is in some kind meditative and what i have seen unique so thank you for that, too. Another thing is, that i just saw this announcement, and was not happy to see you shocked like that, my first idea is to talk to these people personally what solves most of the horrific actions of any kind, maybe you did a video about that, but didn't find it yet so i dare to ask about it here. You are a fine man by the looks and actions you take, so maybe a good choice is to listen to there horror to resolve it. Even if it will not, the "try" is that counts and you survived out there, so you will survive this, too and could even do them something good and yourself of course by establishing some kind of understanding with these people. I live in an apartment, which are not very quiet sometimes and my neighbor had the idea to drink and party very often during the night till 6 am i tried to talk to him when i wanted to sleep but he was drunk all the time, so it doesn't helped, it just made it worse, he turned the music even more up in waves so it was impossible to sleep, the ground and bed were shaking. At the day time I went to work and if I was ringing at his door to talk to him he wasn't there, after half a year of sleep dprivation, tries and sleepless nights I went to him again finally managed to meet, the person it was a bear of a man that opened the door, he was shaking, he couldn't even remember that we talked in the nights, so I asked him what he was doing and what the party's are about, he explained so much, he had need to talk to someone it seemed like and he was relieved that someone actually asked him something about him personally and how he was doing, that he took so much care that i didn't hear of him again and even gave me his phone number so i could call him if something happened, today we are not the closest friends but from now and than if his window is open and he is cooking something that smells good we write a message that the food smells amazing, and he is so happy about it you could tell, cause of his answers. So what looked like being violent, was actually a cry for attention and with transcending, understanding and acknowledging that something wonderful is created what made it better for me and for this person. Would be nice to hear about how it works out anyway, good luck and thanks to you sharing this struggle, what doesn't seem to easy to shape in words and even sharing it.

  • The clue is in the name of your other channel - resilience. Making a decision like that is an example of resilience, and other human strengths like strategic leadership. Qualities I’m sure created your country, self-selecting themselves to thrive where others might perish. Good luck, although I reckon you’ll make your own. Please continue to inspire.

These kind of people have no values, moral compass and the like. They even don't believe in heaven and hell. All they are excited about is to make other people's lives miserable. So pathetic!

When they don’t know something, they have to find out, when they find out, they aren’t content or it’s not enough - so they turn into twisted stalkers, wasting their own time chasing a man just who is making the most of his!

  • I'm sorry to hear about this for you and your family, Shawn. I lived in Northern Wisconsin for 10 years on a rare open 15-acre site that was part of a small farm. After years of work on the house, and barn, a young guy and his friends with Jeeps and searchlights harassed me for years. I didn't know them but every weekend at night they would drive fast all over my fields shining for deer and throwing spotlights in my windows. I was living there alone in the middle of nowhere. I have a glimmer of an idea about how you feel. But, as you said, you are excited about the future and we have to leave the comeuppance to these nervy people to karma.

On the one hand, you have good people who want to build something, who want to take care of each other, and who have high standard values. On the other hand there is those, whom you might call demons in human disguise, for lack of a better word, and who seem beyond any redemption. It's so weird.

    • There are in fact many similarities to what is happening in the world and the Revelation/Apokalypse and regardless of skin color and other statistics it appears to be people are really taking sides either for good or for bad. Society is just all out wrong about so many things. We have been living WITH nature for hundreds of thousands of years and only recently AGAINST it in all our behavior and patterns. Some indulge in this „new“ and dangerous lifestyle while others wake up to our roots...

  • You can choose where you live, but not your neighbors. Sounds like your neighbors are trying to drive you out; I'm glad the cops are wise to their dirty tricks. But the die is cast and if you stayed, there would just be more to come. And that impairs your property value: the developed road close-by and loud neighbors may not be something a prospective buyer wants.

I like the Hells Angels idea, below, but I'm sure you don't want to ruin anything for your nice neighbor. I've been talking about this with my better half--just how far DOES one have to go to get away from others? How much land DO you need to be left alone? It shouldn't be this hard. You seem like a pleasant, down to Earth, reasonable man. I hope your new place is safe and happy for you, your wife, and your daughter, and that it's even better than the place you're leaving. I hope your un-neighborly neighbors regret what they did. Good luck in your new place. Hope to someday have (distant) neighbors as nice as you. God bless your venture!
