More About Isabel Paige And My Disappointment

Very early yesterday morning I wrote a blog post article about a 23 year old young woman named Isabel Paige.  I had watched a couple of her videos and thought that she was interesting enough and attractive enough to write about.  I intended to find out more about her.

Later yesterday evening I was able to find Isabel’s last name, but very little additional information came up for her, which was not too surprising because she is only 23 years old.  When I did a search using Isabel’s father’s name, this eventually led to a kind of unraveling of Isabel’s story about what she was doing.

Isabel’s mother and father live in Seattle, Washington.  When Isabel was talking in her videos about living and working in Seattle, and returning to live on her family’s “farm”, I was mistaken, and so were many of her viewers.  We thought that she had been working and living by herself in Seattle, far away from her home and family, but that was not the case, her family has a home in Seattle.

Isabel’s father’s name was linked to a street address in eastern Washington state on the outskirts of a National Forest.  Using Google Earth Satellite View of this street address revealed that this was the property shown in many of Isabel’s videos, that she was referring to as her family’s “farm”.

The “family farm” that Isabel was talking about returning to in her videos, is not really a farm, because there isn’t any livestock such as horses, cattle, pigs, sheep, goats, or chickens, nor is there any corral, barn, tractor, large farm field, or crop.  There is a large garden that is maybe 1/2 acre in size.  The property is a vacation home that was recently built or purchased by her mother and father.

I feel that I was somewhat duped or misled.  From what Isabel was saying, she was talking about trying to live as a farmer, to be self-sufficient, and to live off-grid.  A more accurate description of the situation, is that Isabel and her sister Natasha are staying in their parent’s vacation home.

When I read the comments to some of Isabel’s videos, some of the commentors were being very critical, saying that Isabel was just staying in her parent’s vacation home, or asking her to show video of the “farm”, or asking her what she was going to do in the winter.  At first I didn’t understand these comments, but now I do.

I don’t think that anyone can live in this vacation home during the winter, for several different reasons.  From the Google Earth Satellite View, there is a one-lane, dead-end dirt road that goes about one mile from the nearest house back to Isabel’s house.  This one-lane dirt road is terraced into a very steep mountainside that is going to shed or avalanche snow onto this road November through March.

More than a mile from Isabel’s house, there is a one-lane wooden bridge over a river that provides access to Isabel’s house and three other houses.  I don’t think that this wooden bridge is rated to carry heavy county road crew snow removal equipment that would be needed to efficiently plow more than one mile of road.  I don’t think that the county crosses over this one-lane wooden bridge to clear the snow for access to these four houses on the far side of the river.

If you could find a private heavy equipment operator to drive a front end loader across the one-lane wooden bridge and clear more than one mile of snow off the road, it would take at least half a day and cost about $1,000 each time.

For the past eighteen years I have lived in heavy snow fall areas of northern Arizona, Idaho, and North Dakota.  In the winter, many National Forest and National Park roads are closed off because they can not keep up with the snow removal.  Bottoms of canyons with vacation homes become inaccessible for large amounts of time in the winter because of snow accumulation.

You can’t live in a mountainous area of Washington at the bottom of a canyon on the limited access side of the river, and expect to be able to make it to a job or a grocery store every day during the winter.  There will be times in the winter when you couldn’t drive out of the far side of the canyon for weeks in a row.

I am not so angry that Isabel gave me and the other viewers the idea that she was going to live and work on her family’s farm, when it isn’t a farm, and she isn’t working on a farm, as I am irritated that Isabel doesn’t really have a viable realistic plan on how she is going to survive this winter.

I imagine that Isabel’s parents haven’t flat out told her “no” that she can’t live at that house in the winter, because this appears to still be her plan.  Maybe her parents are thinking that she will see this for herself in November or December and get out of there before she becomes stuck and has to be rescued.

Here is a video showing Isabel with her family, which will give a little more insight into the situation:

  1. Lol this is creepy AF. If I were isabel I’d be scared. Why does it make u mad? She’s a kid trying to live a sustainable life. She doesn’t need to have everything perfectly figured out. I sound like a bitter old jealous person.

    1. F,

      In reply to your comments:
      “If I were Isabel I’d be scared.” If Isabel, her mother, father, or sister had any sense, they would be scared, they should be scared. Their youngest daughter who is about 23 years old, frequently shows herself in either breast revealing, thigh revealing, crotch revealing, or nude bathing videos alone by herself in the woods. Neither Isabel, her mother, father, or sister have figured out or realized that Isabel is attracting, inviting, luring, tempting, daring thousands of viewers to come and find her, combined with the fact that she has given enough personal information for people to be able to drive to the exact spot where she is located, alone by herself.

      Rather than create an off-grid, sustainable farmstead, Isabel has made this property unsafe for herself, her sister, and her family. Do you know how many people in prison who have been convicted of rape, kidnapping, assault, and sexual assault watch these YouTube videos of lone, naive, defenseless women in the wilderness who get a thrill out of showing themselves naked or nearly naked on the internet to thousands of strangers, stupidly and incorrectly thinking that they can’t be found?

      Something else that is irritating me more and more each day, is that Isabel is continuing on with this charade or ruse that she worked and saved her own money in order for her to be able to get a piece of land and build her own minimal house. The fact is, the piece of land where Isabel is building her minimal house between a mountainside and a creek, adjacent to a national forest, this land probably sells for $20,000-$40,000 per acre, with the smallest zoning-restricted parcel size being 10 acres. Her mother and father had to pay between $200,000-$400,000 for their approximately 10 acre piece of land, and they are allowing Isabel to build something on their land. The stupid young people who watch Isabel’s videos, especially women, according to what Isabel says, they think that they can go work at a waitress job for one year, save $5,000, then quit their job, go buy land beside a mountain stream, and start building a house. No, no, no, Isabel’s mother and father had to work and save for about 30 years to be able to buy this $200K-$400K piece of land.

      1. They should be scared that their daughter is showing her life on the internet. They should have also taught her that making up BS to get views is not honest. I knew when I watched the video and her telling of her trip to OZ and living in Namaste land that she was a fraud. She is “living” on her family’s land so, no taxes paid by her. No real job to make money to PAY taxes or anything else. She’s basically camping on Daddy’s land. I think it’s awesome to be able to do that but, if you’re gonna spew “love the world” BS, at least be straight up about it. However, I think it’s a little creepy that someone went to the effort to Google satellite her locations. I bet dad has long guns and can shoot though.

        Please note that I did not publicize either the name of the town or address of Isabel, though I pointed out that I was able to find it.

        When will people catch on, that if I could find their address, and I explain how I have found it, how many other people have found it and do not say anything because they have plans to come and visit with possibly bad intentions?

    1. Joe,

      I have a suspicion that you are probably Isabelle’s father. If you are, I am disappointed in you too. I do not approve of the industry that you are currently in, especially because of your children, how they are going to be influenced and impacted by what you are doing. As a matter of fact, I think that they already have been negatively affected. You have not set a good example. Isabelle, and apparently you too, think that it is O.K. for Isabelle to have these YouTube video thumbnails of her bathing naked in the river in order to lure people in by means of sexual arousal,and then you dupe these people into believing that a 22 year old young lady with no job has acquired a $300,000 piece of property, a $6,000 vehicle, and is spending $15,000 to build a mini-house on a trailer frame.

      If you want to know how I got Isabelle’s father’s name, do a Google search for Isabelle, then you will see some other possible last names in the Google search results. Use these names to do more Google searches. Use the Google results you get to perform more searches, and eventually you have a whole pool of information like family members, addresses, addresses of property owned, Facebook profiles, LinkedIn profiles, and more. It’s a good thing that you are aware now. No matter where you live, if your daughter goes out beside the highway every day to take her clothes off and bathe in the river, she is probably going to attract attention.

  2. I’m 22 myself and also trying to find a way to sustain myself.
    Since I’m her age and also have her view I totally understand she isn’t scared at all. If something happens, she just has to call and her family is there. Also it is beautiful that she is trying to live and understand life, sadly too many people don’t.
    If her parents were scared they’d say ‘no’.
    But if they were scared it’s because they wouldn’t trust her that she can do it on her own.
    Her parents DO trust her and that’s all she needs.
    And there are scary things that can happen. But would you really let that small chance stop you from truely living your life?
    There are so many people on earth who try to tell someone else what’s better for them. But you don’t know what’s better for her. Only she does.
    Luckily she doesn’t listen cus there are so many people who regret things they never did cus someone else told them not to.
    But in my opinion she is thinking freely and you are thinking limited. (not tryna be rude btw!)
    Also a plan isn’t necessary. Just like everybody else she lives in the moment with her body and like just a few on this earth she lives in the moment with her mind, spirit and soul.
    She will figure it out in the moment.
    Nobody can prepare for life because nobody knows how to really live it. Everybody is just trying cus there is just 1 chance.
    Also nobody can prepare for everything, sometimes things just have to happen and you’ll find a way.

    Thanks for your research btw, I also wondered a lot!
    Much love!

    1. Selflove,

      That’s fine that you are trying to find your way in life. But I don’t like anyone setting young people up for failure, disappointment, and sending them in the wrong direction.

      For those young people who want to live off-grid, a low-cost, sustainable lifestyle, Isabel’s videos are misleading you and other young people. The piece of land that Isabel is building her tiny-house on, is about ten acres that costs at least $300,000. The kind of land that is shown in her videos beside a stream in Washington, the smallest parcel size for this kind of land is county zoning restricted to about ten acres and $300,000, because the county and the existing property owners do not want low-income people or hippies to be able to purchase 1/4 acre lots for $10,000 and place trailers on them beside the river, wreaking havoc on the scenery.

      The property that Isabel is living on was purchased by her mother and father. Her mother and father built up two successful businesses over the course of twenty years from when they were about twenty-five through forty-five years old. Her mother and father worked for twenty years at jobs before they were able to buy this piece of property!!!

      If there are young people watching Isabel’s videos, who want to buy their own land and build their own tiny house, I suggest that they work in the construction trades for at least eight years, and save their money. You will start out as a laborer, carrying lumber, concrete blocks, drywall, and roofing shingles. After a while, you might get to help frame or help shingle. Maybe you might get to be an apprentice electrician or an apprentice plumber. You had better be watching and learning what all of the other trades are doing. After eight years of work, you might have both the knowledge and the money to buy a small piece of land and build your own small house.

      Does this sound like a lot of work? Why do you think your mother, father, and other people had to work their whole lives?

  3. I’m torn about Isabel’s videos. On the one hand, it is misleading. She makes the choice to live this way appear easily achievable. BUT, I do appreciate the message, the essence of what she’s doing and sharing.

    The give-away that she was from a family with money for me was her description of living in Australia and New Zealand. Even though it sounds as though she lived in inexpensive accommodations and worked for her own upkeep, the cost of the journey alone, never mind the cost of living with no income until she found her ashram situation preclude less well off teenagers.

    HOWEVER – more power to her for taking that path when I’m sure her peers were mostly headed to university.

    Selfishly I’m glad she is on her parent’s property and less “off the grid” than is suggested from her videos. I’ve longed for such a lifestyle, but adding up costs realistically led me to realize it may be out of reach for me.

    I’m 46 and my only son will go to college in a few years. I’m a single mother and a teacher, so you can imagine that I have meager savings. One must have some money – a decent chunk – stashed away for emergencies. Just as the roof of a suburban home, that of a tiny house would need repairing or replacing if damaged. A new roof isn’t cheap

    I am a decent woodworker, love it, and have done enough of it to know that the pile of lumber she takes from wasn’t cheap. And it looks like she’s using a 12″ dual bevel sliding compound DeWalt miter saw. That’s no cheap thing. Which had me scratching my head wondering where she got the money to afford all that. Also, her linen clothes are clearly expensive. And ironed.

    BUT – still knowing all that, I really like her. I appreciate her videos. I appreciate the sustainability message. It’s refreshing to see a young woman with such appreciation for the environment, wilderness, nature, since many of her same-age YouTube counterparts are peddling make-up and fashion. (Actually I don’t know that to be true. It’s the impression I get.)

    Perhaps it’s like watching anything on telly. You need a suspension of disbelief. If we view her videos as entertainment and not “how to,” we can appreciate them.

    Meanwhile, the mountains are calling…can I afford to go?

    1. NamedforDickens,

      I don’t know if you live in the U.S., England, Australia, or New Zealand. To answer your questions about where Isabel gets her money, I looked her up, got her family members’ names, and recently I looked up Isabel’s father. It appears from his own biography that I read, that he began designing ordinary household consumer products, but with unusual colors, and designs that would make them more appealing than just an ordinary mop, broom, dog bowl, etc. Stores began carrying his more colorful products, then he sold the company that he started. He did this starting, then selling his company, at least twice.

      This property that Isabel’s parents purchased in eastern Washington State, her parents are in eastern Washington State, in this area, it looks like, to start a legal marijuana growing operation. Isabel has often made mention of returning to live on her family’s “farm”, yet we viewers have never been shown any crop. Yes, Isabel and her parents are indeed probably interested in farming.

      When I read about what appears to be Isabel’s father starting a legal marijuana growing operation, I began to notice that it looks like Isabel’s eyes are often very glassy and bloodshot, and she prepares these voluminous meals and eats like a fiend, and now I think I know why. I think that some of her viewers already suspected what I now suspect.

      If you live in the U.S., and you don’t earn a lot of money from being a school teacher, I hope that you will receive a teacher’s pension when you retire. The beautiful places in the U.S. that you read about, like Santa Fe NM, Sedona AZ, Flagstaff AZ, Jackson Hole WY, you will not likely ever be able to afford to live in the well-publicized beautiful places.

      However, if you do research, there are rural areas and rural towns across the U.S. that once had larger populations, but most of the people moved away, leaving single-family homes, that sell for $5,000-$50,000. You have to be really careful about what you are potentially getting into. Is this a nice area with nice people, who just had people move away for better work opportunities, or has this deserted town been taken over by criminals and drug users?

      I don’t want to steer you in the wrong direction with some of these examples, but I have been in Wyoming towns where the population went from 5,000 people in year 2000, down to 800 people in year 2013 when my friend bought some cheap property there. There were many vacant single-family homes, and I believe that some were for sale by the city/county for the property taxes owed. There are towns like this in Nevada, North Dakota, and other mid-western states.

      If you are going to retire and receive a pension, you could purchase a $5,000-$50,000 house on a double or triple lot, or even acreage in a town or county where most of the people have moved away for work, and have your own place where you can garden and make things. But keep in mind, that there will not likely be any good local employment opportunities, nor any good local stores, and you may not have any buyers for your house if you want to leave. But some of these rural areas are beautiful, even though most people moved away.

      Start looking at many of the YouTube videos of a 40 year old single woman “Prepper Princess”, who just moved from California to Bullhead City Arizona.

  4. They are calling you a creep in the comments but it’s fucking dumb. How are women so deluded that they think posting your full name and more than enough details to track you down while you post videos of yourself in the wilderness naked is just fine and dandy? And you’re a creep just because you can find this out doing a handful of Google searches out of boredom lol. God forbid an actual predator go out and hunt her down. Not to mention, aren’t there literal fucking wild animals like bears, mountain lions and wolves in the wild there?

    By the way, as you already suspected, she is 100% high as fuck, you can see a ton of weed growing in one of the videos where she opens the glass door to show off the view. Obnoxious hippy types living in some weird bubble.
