#offgrid #logcabin #friends
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.

If you purchased it with a credit card there is often insurance through card company. Worth checking out. Sorry to here about the theft. It’s such an awful feeling. Best wishes.

Step 1. Go to Google Step 2. Search this keyword: 123moviesdaily Step 3. Enjoy! My Camera Was STOLEN (wallet too)! | A Visit from an Old Friend And, you'll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It's the only good fight there is.

Lol if they did take everything from your truck, you would certainly be experiencing some "self" reliance.

Ive had my truck broke into also. Thank the good Lord my wallet wasn't in it. They only took the strereo and cd's and such. Still makes me angry and if I'd have caught them, it wouldn't be pretty.

Over $10k Canadian in personal items stolen. Not sure about Ontario, but that's a felony in the USA.

Shawn, The loss of property you worked hard to earn is the worst feeling in the world. You think "what gives you the right to steal something I worked hard for?" Not to mention that feeling of being violated. Search for your items on Ebay, Marketplace and Craiglist, the police will also do that for you. Best of luck and keep living the dream!

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..

@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 bundles..by the way! It helps with mosquitoes!

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.
