95TurboSol : There are probably a lot of people that would like to do unique things like this but are too socially afraid to do it, kudos to this guy going for what makes him happy.

I Was A Legend Than Got Old!. : Evolution is a nice thing but judging this man for leaving the BS rat race of life behind is truly pathetic.. Don't call him stupid or crazy before you first walk all those miles that he has in those shoes.. Sure we need to evolve as a society but we shouldn't ever forget where we all came from or the skills that got us here.. And IF everything does fall apart having such skills would be valuable to you and others that you can barter stuff for. I really do commend him for living for himself and truly doing what makes him happy and all without the stresses of our modern world!. So trust me he is very rich!.

Scott E. Robinson : Dan, PLEASE consider creating a digital version of your 77 chronicles to share/sell. I think they would be a great gift to those who are stuck in the social "norm" who so desperately wish they could live such an adventure as yours. Thank you Kirsten for sharing this amazing story, and thank you Dan for permitting us a glimpse into your personal life.

D T : He doesn’t sound nuts to me, I think we’re the ones who are nuts living in this rat race!

Russell Garr : When childhood dies, the cadaver that remains is called an adult. -- Charles Dickens.

peace tranquility : “In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.”

Trey TDG : I love this guy. He reminds me of Mr. Rogers . R.I.P. especially when he took his shoes off before he went in his house.

Sniper Pigeon : I can smell big government trying to screw with him to take his land away, its a shame this lifestyle is so ridiculed nowadays

John Pharms : Ten years ago I got rid of my cable/television. I also got rid of my twitter/face book. I wondered why I had those things in the first place. I'm 66 years old and have done more reading since I was 22 years old living and teaching in Spain during the mid-seventies. I've gotten rid of lots of clothes and friends, family. Get a medical or financial problem and those people suddenly vanish! I have no bills except the basic and owe no man!!!! I want to do more!! Thank you for this film!!!!!! It makes me very sad to see people living up to the Jones idiots of the world. LIVE FREE!! BE FREE!!

My Damn Channel : Man what a adventurous life this man has led..even the richest people on the planet have probably not had the quality adventures he has.

wide awake : I hope those that stole from you have a very unhappy life. Stealing personal objects is a despicable and evil crime and those who do it deserve severe unhappiness.

StreetArtistsOfTheWorld : How low do you have to be to steal from this guy???!! FFS!

Wendy S : I can almost hear his kids' friends saying, "Your dad is so COOL...."

Capt. Cutler : Who the hell keeps robbing this guy!? Damn!

John Smith : The only thing I would change is dig in a little deeper to add a room to stand. My knees are toast. and yes being an adult sucks but someone has to do it. I will bet he lives a long and peaceful life!

al north : Hopefully humans will wake up and start following how this brother is living

goglo614 : This story made my heart sing as well as deeply inspire me. The best time of our lives is during our childhood, which I miss painfully. Like him, I am a natural hermit. Thank you, Mr. Price, for sharing your world.

Tom O'Hawk : I've lived like this for 40 years, I don't own anything apart from my tent, a change of clothes and a few photos of a long lost love. I'm 64 now with no living relatives, it's been lonely.

Behold The Truth : Such wonderful life he lives, I'd like to try it. Thank you for making this beautiful documentary. It was very very well done and also very relaxing to watch. I can't wait to see what else you have on your channel.

Waveluth : We should all be so lucky to have what he has achieved for himself. He loves animals , life and the simplicity of just living life on his terms. I’m impressed and happy for him. God bless him and his life. He may be the richest man in town. Money is nice to have but your a slave in the pursuit of it. I used to be wealthy and thought having stuff meant true success. In 2008 the market crashed and I lost everything I owned. Now I live a simple life in a simple home and I’ve never been happier. All those years wasted worrying about money. Life can be great without stuff it really can. Good luck to you sir. You’ve made a friend today. Great time for sure. !! Peace✌🏻🇺🇸

Schyler LaBeef : Dude has a freaking handpan in the crib. Wtf im jealousssss haha

khana ristobal : Well , never knock another person way of life and I understand his reasoning. My dream as a kid is to have a mansion , since I came from poverty and poor country. I enjoy making money and helping other people succeed on the way.I bought historic school from 1910 that is 5600 sq ft with 12 ft ceilings on 7 1/2 acres made of rock and brick.I'm slowly restoring it and molding it to my mansion I always dream about.What is your dream? Don't follow trends like you should move into a "tiny" house build on top of trailer just because you got brainwashed and told by somebody that this is the "sustainable" way to live.My heating bill could be for example $1000 a mount and that would be OK and "sustainable " as long as I earn this money in 2-4 hours.What I'm saying here and what this man is saying is follow your own dream, don't get boxed into trends and influenced by others and told what to do.

Jamaica Uitzetter : Makes me wanna demolish my home and start over like this good sir.

Matty Oh Matty : I have alot of respect for this man!

Brad Partain : I remember when I was a kid, during winter, the bulldozers would push a *huge* pile of snow into the center of our culdesac. Me and a couple of other kids got together with shovels and scrapers and dug out a long pathway going through it, as well as a little room. Over night, the roof froze solid to the point where you could walk on it and be fine.

Diana Bozarth : I like this guy. Nice to see good people in the world

elektroqtus : My Side of the Mountain. I remember that. Good stuff.

Jerry Smith : Where can I rent 2 acres in property that beautiful for 100 a yr!?!

Russ Fye : We should all be living like this man 👍

Noo Day : What a Smart Guy.

shorea27 : It seems like a lonely lifestyle. Great for 1-3 months retreat though.

Andrew Frost : and here I am thinking that my 850 sq./foot apartment is not big enough...

Wandering man : This guy reminds me of Mister Rodgers.

Yard Sale Dale : The robbers are cursed.

M.R.N : I could live like this... In a heartbeat.

HOBO ARTIST : I didnt build it to stand up in because i dont like furniture of any kind. Dust chatchers. Its very cool to kneel down in order to enter your home that protects you from the elements. To kneel down upon entering a sacred space makes me feel humble and very grateful that i have such a cozy, warm, or cool place to be in and call home. One that isnt sucking all my financial resources and my soul and creativity along with it. I will take LESS any day over more.

bookmarkthis : Hobobit.

Terrakinetic : I couldn't do this. Not because it is hard or lacks comforts, but being alone with nature without any vision of forward progress just crushes me with the frailty of human mortality. When you're in the city, despite all the dirtiness and vice, you can see people struggle against nature. We push back the night, the cold, the quiet. Even when people die, their voices echo on endlessly- with friends, family, photos, the Internet and so on. Nature is clean, pristine, and balanced; but it is still a one way ticket to that end. I am not a religious man. Whatever religion may be correct or wrong, but humans just are. Humanity is hope and humanity shall struggle. We will writhe and roil and crawl. All our individual sufferings and stresses are the collective thrashing of our species as we try to fix ourselves. The last two centuries has been an explosive series of advancements the likes of which no other living being on this planet has ever been able to do. Nature is magnificent but so are we. I am reminded of a message from 'Dune.' What is the difference between a human and an animal? Humans can abstain from greed, immediate fulfillment, and foolish pride. Humans can endure pain and suffering to stave off the greater crisis. Those that can't are animals. Nature cannot select a species with the foresight to predict when the sun will explode. So in the face of climate change, of greedy corporations, of corrupt politicians, of mongers, and beasts we will struggle and we will not die.

purrrrson : So many of these tiny house dwellers are living their dreams. Many other people are chasing their dreams through material things. How many people of wealth are truly happy? Sure, money helps in achieving happiness but it's not the main thing.

Brother Jauffre : I like it but I wouldn't want to live without internet though

Grimpus1 : Bet hes got a tunnel behind that picture leading to an underground garage with 10 sports cars

Crash N Burn : Cheers to you Sir! I'd give anything to step into your shoes if only for a moment longer!

justin denley : Why not reward people who can, will, and want to live like this? Reduced taxes (( if any )) at all. Simple, beautiful, enough to live or survive. We have the technology to live well in simple structures, why not simplify?

CK1 : I have an old camera, I‘d send it to him

Pete is never wrong : Something both magical, and yet a sadness too. Just my take.

Wasteland Gypsy : Im so glad the local Government hasnt messed with this guy. What he does is such a good thing.

Mira Tay : My fat ass won’t fit into your tiny house with tiny doors, but I love it

Nate B : Such a wonderful person. Thanks for sharing!

Hugur Kids : Incredible! I had high hopes of living a simple like with my husband. Unfortunately, he never wanted me to leave my 400 fortune company. He became abusive and I had to leave our 5 acre dream. Koodoos to You man. Your reality is our dream! Good for you. And great dreams for us. Sorry that people took advantage of you.

hobbit : this is so magical!
