Where I’m Going From Here

Where I’m Going From Here

Hi everyone, I am touching base with a borderline boring update to let you all know my plans. I appreciate all of you who have offered kind words, words of wisdom, and compassion during this time. The camping will continue and we will see how this all works out.

    Everyone griefs differently Steve.My best friend passed away unexpectedly 6 yrs ago. I started hiking and camping. To get away. Then i found your channel. You and beautiful wife made my week. I looked forward to seeing all your adventures. You have no idea how many life”s you two have touched. No matter how you move on, i’m sure we, as a community, will support you. You’re in our thoughts!!

    Bless you Steve. You are so brave. Bigfoot looks great. Please do whatever you need to do and plenty of screaming at the sky. Much Love 💚💚

    Don’t let that 1% keep you down. Anyone who watches your videos knows how genuine you are.

      “Give a man a mask and he’ll show you his true face”. The mask is the internet in this example. But as we always say in this comment section Steve, don’t let the 1% get you down.

    However you’re feeling, whatever you go through- we are here for you. Life’s not always good times, sometimes it’s hard, but a good friend is here to support through it all. That’s what 99% of us are. You don’t have to be anything but you because that’s what we all love!

    “Everything’s gonna be alright”. You’re such a pure soul, Steve. Never change. We love you & appreciate you so so much

      I don’t think I’ve ever run across a more real and everyday guy like you Steve. Your videos have inspired me to want to be “camping like Steve”. We all got to know you and “Crazy Neighbour” and most of all, “Beautiful Wife”. While we didn’t see her, we all got to know her.
      As you said, statistically, there must be at least a few thousand of us who too lost a loved one. Most of us have been there and know it’s truly the hardest thing to go through in life. Statistically there will be some percentage of commenters who are just plain jerks. I could use stronger language, but we all know it. If it’s 1%, then it’s not too bad. It still hurts and I think it’s just being human to react more to the negative. I’m a fairly humble guy and feel uncomfortable with praise and complements but really get rankled with the bad stuff.
      You’re going to be a new Steve in some ways but don’t lose the old one too much. He’s still a pretty good guy and has over a million friends who laugh and cry with him. A million or 10 million or 10 can’t change the past but we want you to know, we’ve got your back even if it’s just in spirit. Welcome back to the world, take it slow though.

      ​@Steve Wallis
      i discovered your channel when i was at a pretty low point in my life. i had been homeless 6.5 years, i was in the hospital repeatedly with blood poisoning (septicemia), gangrene, and other nefarious things. all had roots in the fact that i was outdoors and was not able to take proper care of myself. my relationship with my youngest daughter was at an all time low (she was 27 at the time) and she told me that she wanted me to be permanently OUT of her life, due to lies she had been told about me. my oldest, and closest friend had been recently murdered. another very old friend decided that she was going to betray me in one of the worst possible ways. and i was potentially facing the rest of my life with no legs, and in a wheelchair.

      your videos and your “chatting with a buddy” style gave me a feeling that there was someone out there that cared. someone actually gave a damn about an old man at rock bottom. well, to put it bluntly, you — *_YOU_* helped me get through some pretty dark shit. since then, my daughter has come around and we chat pretty frequently (she lives across the country from me). i’ve been dealing with the issues concerning my friends. and i have been starting to make some real progress with getting my proverbial poop in a group. i’m not saying that it is *_ALL_* because of you. but you did play a significant role in getting my mind into a better place so that i could start turning things around.

      i don’t know if you truly, fully understand the scope and scale of the positive impact you have on so many lives with these goofy little outdoor adventures that you invite us to. i see you as a modern day Huck Finn type character. you want to go, and see, and do. and you welcome us along for the ride down Ol’ Miss. and for this digital camaraderie that you provide, and for allowing me to relive my own outdoor adventures through you, it gives a little bit of meaning to my world. and you’ve shown me that there can be — and indeed *_ARE_* — genuine “folks” left in the world. the type of people that on a hot day, will invite you up onto their porch to share a little bit of shade, and offer an icy step two.

      steve, i’m not going to tell you to keep going, or to stop. that is ultimately *_YOUR_* decision. but i will say this… the world is a brighter place with you doing what you’ve done. it gives cynics like me a little bit more faith in humanity, and restores my hope for the future of our species. so steve, for doing this for me and everyone else out there in internet land…

      thank you.

    It’s your character that captured us. You just do you Steve. Hang in there, you’ll find your way. And the 99% of us will be with you.

  8. Dixie Cryptid says:

    One of my awesome commentors recommended your channel right after the tragedy in your life. I think your content is great. My channel is 1/10 yours and I still spend time each day banning people who make ugly comments. Keep moving forward, Steve.

  9. Summer Johnson says:

    We got you, Steve. Surrounding you with our love and prayers. To mourn and to hurt means you have loved tremendously. That is a huge honor.

    We are here for you. I lost my dad, can’t imagine losing my wife. Sending you lots of love and support.
