    What other films have you watched of Wilderness Survival?

    Netflix, Youtube whatever Thanks?
    The Wilderness for myself has always been a place, I can escape to and discover my stronger self. A true builder of self-confidence and skills, I never knew we're possible within me to achieve. A tough taskmaster breakdown my self-limits and barriers. I have overcome and found my inner self, leaving behind only the old skin, blood, and sweat, having won a newer stronger self. The Wilderness shows me a better reflection of myself.

    I have watched the OP video and it's good but prefer cabin builds and such from a low cost perspective. It's not hard if you have the cash.

    There is youtuber that built a offgrid cabin for 300 bucks and did it while working a full time job. It's not as fancy or dramatic so it won't get the exposure some others do. But doing it without much money or time or resources is awesome.


    Here some other good videos, I have no links but with google it's a click away

    The Happy People, a year in the taiga

    snowshoes and solitude by Les Stroud

    Dick Proenneke One mans wilderness

    The cree hunters of Missittissi that is a nfb production
    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    The videos made by Shawn James building his log cabin and all the subsequent videos he has made regarding living alone and surviving out in the Canadian back country in Ontario, are outstanding. James is a highly skilled craftsman, an excellent video maker and editor, and outdoorsman.

    His videos are very interesting. I've watched perhaps 25 of them and have not been bored yet.

    FWIW.

    Sorry for bumping an old thread but, the best videos about living alone are the Alone In The Wilderness Series about Dick Proenneke. He went to Alaska and built a cabin. He didn't carry an axe, he carried an axe head, fell a tree with it, then used the head to make a handle.. His videos are full of stories as simple as that.

    You can sometimes catch the videos on the Discovery Channels and other channels as well. Look for Alone In The Wilderness.
