    That is Joe Robinet/@RangerJoe 's buddy Shawn James. The fact that he went all Dick Proenneke and built the entire thing by hand is pretty amazing.

    Love his channel, I watched the entire build every week and it was epic. It's better than most crap on cable tv. Love Joe's channel as well.

    You should really watch his build video set - Youtube channel "My Self Reliance".
    He talks a lot about his motivations and gives great general life advice.
    He doesn't brag, he doesn't show off how much he knows, he just gives tips and does his thing. Most "bushcrafters" on youboob just run their trap about how to do things their way. Great, relaxing content.

    No seriously. All with his bare hands. No tools or anything. He walked right up to the first tree, grabbed that big sucker with both hands and ripped it right out of the ground. I've never seen anything like it. Carried two trees back to camp at the same time. from there he proceeded to make notches with super fast yet surprisingly accurate judo chops and just kept going from there. Pounding in the pegs with his fists was especially impressive.:59::54::18:

    I think you got confused with the Chuck Norris video.

    Great guy. I've had a few little chats with him (FB/YT comments is all). I would recommend visiting his YT page directly and subbing rather than that side-site. Says some great things too I find particularly inspiring as I plan to build a small cabin in my grandfather's honor when I'm older.
