How am I able to be OFF GRID and do YouTube?

  • Am 25 Jul 2021 veröffentlicht
  • I have always wanted to do a "behind the scenes" video, on how I alone make these videos possible. Even though my ambition is to be able to live totally without electricity, it is also to share it and inspire through DEclips (which has been amazing). Therefore I am into solar panels and batteries. I was able to test out EcoFlow's latest cutting edge battery, the DELTA Pro. Which I saw as a perfect opportunity to integrate into this video. This battery can run almost anything at your home. Now I recommend watching the other reviews on DEclips, as mine wasn't even near it's full potential. I just love being able to charge my DEclips gear outdoors fully from the sun, totally off grid.
    This is my first sponsored video. I like when it contributes to the video, to me and to you. I will only do sponsorships that fits into the video and that I think interests you hopefully as much as it does to me.
    ecoflow.com ?aff=150
    This video contains a bit of a preview on my projects and what's to come in the series. You can see me edit the upcoming episode in this video. You will soon see how I have done the roof on the log cabin and later what that hole in the ground is used for.
    The biggest question in this video:
    Who is the new dog and is Alice fine?
    Alice is part of our family and has been with me from time to time, but now she has puppies. I wanted my own 100% of the time dog. To be able to hunt with and go on all of my adventures. So here is "Barr" meaning Spruce Needle in Swedish. He is a German Shorthaired pointer "Vorsteh", bird dog.
    DELTA Pro: $1999-$3599
    DELTA Pro & 400W Solar Panel: $3838-$4798

Progress with the cottage also looks very good, I'm guessing that the hole that must have been hard work will be a cellar for food supplies. I can't wait for the next video! Good luck in the future, good luck! 👍🏻👌🏻❤️🌲🌲

    Excellent video. A tip for you - always keep all cameras on the same frame rate (eg 50p) and edit in the same frame rate. That way you will prevent things like the drone shots having broken motion caused by different frame rate (like 60p or 24p).

  • Alexander Irizarry-Camarillo

    You are quite a remarkable young man. To have accomplished what you have at such a young age is impressive. Now, Erik, do you miss the companionship of others? How about your family, do you keep in contact with them? I just have so many questions...do you plan on writing a book? This would really test my survival skills, and I consider myself to be an introvert? But, to follow you around since building the cabin, I found many times where you could have used another set of eyes, or even help in moving heavy items? Are you close to any neighbors? Do you use a cell phone or a satellite phone? I just really admire your focus and ability to get things done. I wish you the best, be well and stay safe. Alex from LA. Oh yes, I love when your grandfather came on board to help you. For some reason I felt relieved.

    Your dog is so precious and happy. Always attentive. You can tell he loves being with you.
    PS: your range of tools are amazing. The axes especially.

    This episode was kind of a let down for me. I was kinda spoiled by watching your skills. And was hoping for more of that. I’m truly jealous of the life your living there. Enjoy it ALL, it goes by way to fast.

    Great new video! I see that you're using a German Army flecktarn tarp as shelter :D would always recognize that piece of equipment since I've had it too during my 13 years of service. If you have two of these you can connect them and you have a small tent which is nicknamed "Dackelgarage" (Dachshund/sausage/wiener dog garage) in our armed forces.
    I really like your videos, please carry on!

    You are a very talented young man! Fancy ax throwing! And your doggy is adorable. I am jealous of your beautiful cabin, and the woods are so serene. I would love to visit Sweden some day, as that is where my heritage comes from. Thank you for your hard work! Keep pressing on. God bless.

    Not only are you a skilled outdoorsman, you’re also great film make. People don’t realize how much work is put in to create a quality video…editing and all that. But you do it well my friend. Love the dog as well👍

    Thank you for all you do and tricks you show! I am from Princeton, WV USA and we have built our hunting/fishing cabins from logs as well as hand hewn lumber so it is amazing to see this done in a beautiful country as well. I do have two questions, is that new doggie and what breed is it? It is very beautiful and well behaved. :)

    1) l always watch out for the next new episode. Can't wait to see the videos on the tile roof and cellar.
    2) Barr is a gorgeous looking dog. I'm glad to hear Alice had some puppies. Hope she will pop in on some future videos.
    3) Congratulations on your first sponsor. How apropos this product is to your content. I watch Talasbuan (another YT channel about off grid cabin living in the forests of northern Sweden) and will mention Ecoflow in my comment.
    4) Your age throwing skill is amazing.
    5) nstall rain water collecting tanks.
    6) Cut out more trees around your cabin to eliminate any brush fire hazard.
    7) l am a Filipino woman married in Stockholm to a Swede in 1971. Had a summer house in Mariannelund from 1986 to 2016. My husband and l live in Los Angeles where we met in 1969. Totally into anything Swedish, except regret speaking English at home and never got to learn to speak your language. I hear Swedish everyday when my husband calls his sister, etc in Sweden.
    8) Keep up the good work. You are a special young man. Am a big fan from day 1.

    I just watched a previous video of yours, and I thought to myself. "Man, I just cant imagine Erik sitting down at a computer and editing videos and uploading content." BAM! here the video is, showing what I said to myself. DEclips is indeed spying on my thoughts not just my internet history thus making these videos all the more important so I can disappear into the wild and away from google.

    Man that's wonderful, your videos inspired me so much. I living in russia moscow, but thinks very often to leave city and go to the forest. We have very similar nature around and i think i will do my downshift with your inspiration. Thank you

    I am curious about how you got the blocks for your root cellar, as well as the tongue-and-groove floor planks? I was impressed with the accuracy of how you used the various axes to precisely chop & shave the wood. The dog is a nice touch too. Assume you used a drone for the altitude shots?

    I am in America. I live in Missouri. It’s beautiful here. I’ve always dreamed since I was very young of living in a log home. ❤️ what happened to the first little dog? I love seeing dogs around while you work.
    2nd question: how did you learn to use these tools?

    Great video. Barr seems like an awesome companion to share the forest with. Super fun to get a behind-the-scenes vid that showcases how the sausage is made so to speak. Tack för all inspiration, lugn och ro och trivsel dina videos alltid bidrar med till min tillvaro och alla andras gissar jag. KBO as Churchill said!

    Thank you for the insight! Really nice gear, such a compact equipment is certainly handy! However, it made me wonder what do you do for living? What is your profession? The effort you've put into building this amazing retreat of yours must need some serious infrastructure, how do you make it happen? I would love to see or hear more of the details.

    Erik, a very nice lifestyle. congratulations. What I want to learn in particular is, are the axes you throw special made? If not, how are you calculating the rotation of the ax? How would you be if you made a video about it?

    Great video---no music, only nature's 'song' as background. Well, those and the thunk of your axes hitting the tree stump, lol. Somehow, I seem to have missed you putting the tiles on the roof. Looks like I have some searching to do to find that missing episode. Keep up the good work, Erik. It calms my soul to see a young someone keeping old skills alive.

      No, you didn't miss the roofing episode. He says in his post at the top and in the description of this video, that this behind the scenes video is foreshadowing two things: the roof and the hole.
