Moving into the Woods Alone

We’re Moving Into an Off-Grid Cabin Alone in the Woods

We’re moving to the woods alone!! After searching many months for a cabin in the woods we finally found an off grid rustic cabin to continue living tiny in the wilderness! We will always be a van life couple- van life will always be for us but in the meantime we’re building a beautiful home base by moving in the woods alone into a tiny cabin home! This is one chapter in our lives that we cannot wait to share with you. Get ready for off grid fun and diy cabin build projects wooooooo!! So happy to finally share this with you all 💛

Our Journey! How did we get here?
We started living in our van full time in winter of February 2019. We drove across Canada spent 8 months on Vancouver Island working, living and traveling in our van. We then started our dream of overlanding Canada to Argentina. We fell in love with full time travel and van life as we carried on through Canada, USA, Mexico, & Guatemala. However, we couldn’t keep overlanding due to the travel restrictions. Over the past year and a half we have drove across Canada showing so many beautiful off- grid camps, national parks and how to live in a van. Now we are embarking on one of the most challenging & exiting projects yet… We are building an off-grid cabin in the woods alone with no experience al the while living in a van!

Make sure you join us as we continue to create van life & cabin life vlogs of our alternative life style. We hope you’ve enjoyed our previous travel vlogs & continue to join us on our next chapter of building this beautiful off grid cabin!

  5. John Skillen on August 13, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    Hopefully there are no sasquatch there…I’m guessing you ladies would look and smell a lot better than Mrs sasquatch

    Lesbian home steaders you go "girls" ..?

  9. Nicolas Derome on August 13, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    You really just decided to be Flower and Butterfly from Without A Paddle huh.

  10. carnivorous soup spoon on August 13, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    what an amazing location. still I cant help but wonder how two people who have been living out of a van and traveling for 2 years can afford to do this? I wish I knew the secret. Buying the land and tools and rain water system and solar power and gravel for a drive way that long and a porch and redoing the inside of the cabin and so on and on and on and on….sounds crazy expensive (atleast for the initial costs) does youtube really generate that much income? im pulling in 100k+ working my ass off and I dont think I could pull this off, let alone have been not working and just traveling for two years leading up to this……props to you both making it work, just wish I knew how it could be done.

  11. Amie Hay on August 13, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    Wild Wonderful Off Grid, the Nomadic Movement, the Indie Projects, da Jungleboy are good channels. Barrington Passage has some awesome surf (I used to body surf down there)

  12. Gazzmo on August 13, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    well done girls 🙂 from Argyll County Scotland,

  13. Achisachis73 on August 13, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    I can’t believe these girls. There are so many bad people in this world to be exposed to danger like this. It’s crazy.

  14. manman la on August 13, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    Need insulation on those walls

  15. GatheringSticks on August 13, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    You will so freeze your butts off come winter.
    I will watch with interest.

    The witch of North and the wicked witch of the west seem to be getting along.. a little to good if you ask me.

  18. J. Link VII on August 13, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    So freaking cringe.

  19. James Acland on August 13, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    Green snakes are cool. Watch out for trouser snakes though.

  20. Sam Carpitcher on August 13, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    You guys could be in bigfoot country. That spot looks pretty remote. Whatever you do, do not feed them.

  21. Sammy Gonz on August 13, 2021 at 10:14 pm

  22. Henson Logging Company on August 13, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    Looks like a nice place to start a cult

  23. Kerry Clark on August 13, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    First time watching you gals. Question: how do you afford a Mercedes van, an F150, and all the tools and equipment, BBQ, and house? Previous jobs?

  24. Debra Chin on August 13, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    Please watch Uncontained life they are totally living off grid in Texas, you will learn a lot from them

  25. Sofia Deem on August 13, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    It’s always easier, try to move alone as a woman to nowhere. Like no plan, but I am on my way. In 4 weeks the journey starts… Let’s see where it takes me. But no matter what I loved this video and its an amazing life you live ❤️❤️❤️stay awesome

  26. BananaJSSI on August 13, 2021 at 10:22 pm

  27. Vanita on August 13, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    Congratulations on your new home!! I just stumbled across your channel and here I am 27 mins later wanting to see more lol.

    I would recommend you watch Eamon and bec. They’re also van lifers from Canada who just bought their own cabin in the woods as well!

    Hope you two stay safe!

  28. NOTRiff Raff on August 13, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    They will both be Sasquatch researchers in 3, 2, 1……

  29. Patriot4TheTree on August 13, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    I searched "how to remove cat piss from wood", and this video popped up lol. Now that’s funny.

  30. Derek Hunter on August 13, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    Yuppies in the Woods seems to be the latest youtube trend.

  31. United Space Pirates on August 13, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    Keep camera ready for sasquatch visitors.

  32. Chu Pappi on August 13, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    Can I move in to?
    It’ll be a dream come true

  33. kellyhonor on August 13, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    So excited to follow this cabin journey! I recommend following hannahleeduggan on YouTube. She also has a semi off grid cabin she’s been fixing up!

  34. Armando Rodriguez on August 13, 2021 at 10:39 pm

  35. Jake Campbell on August 13, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    Love it!! For everything you need when it comes to DIY projects, watch the channel, Home RenoVision DIY. Is propane available in your area? If so, you can do a propane conversion on the generator so youre not having buy excessive amounts of gasoline until youre up and running on solar. Plus the propane will come in handy for your grill, stove, dryer, water heater, etc…. Keep up the good work and enjoy nature at its best.

  40. Bolivar Maximiliano DeLaGuerta on August 13, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    I recommend you acquire yourself a weapon or two

  41. Dark Chocolate on August 13, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    It’s vids like this that help me forget how screwed up the world can be.

  42. roy arrowood on August 13, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    That bridge at the 1 minute mark is worrisome

  43. Mike Raffphone on August 13, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    I would love to be the meat in that sandwich

  46. Zach King Shorts on August 13, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    0:56 had me on pins and needles. Most YouTubers would have made this the Title and Opener of the video BUT you, just casually drive over

  47. Tanoshimi on August 13, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    These ladies are more manly than me!
