This is a discussion on Alaska The Last Frontier within the Books, Videos, Media, Podcasts forums, part of the General Discussion category; A lot more useful info on “Alaska: TLF” than “Doomsday Preppers” that’s for sure. For that matter, I get better info from “Moonshiners” than “Doomsday”...

I like Otto who is the one that does all the cattle. Just seems he can fix or fabricate anything.
Appearently, the show came because of Jewel though she's never been on it. Appears there was going to be a music video at a remote location & there would only be porta pottis there. Jewel said no problem as she grew up with no indoor plumbing & an outhouse & the homestead was still that way. Anyhow, the producer kept asking questions & a few months later sent a film crew up to the homestead.
It is a good show, but they have money and don't have to worry about anything...
I've seen Yukon Men and Wilderness Men. I've yet to check out Alaska: TLF...is it better?
Been reading this forum for a while now but I had to register to reply to this thread. Alaska TLF is no different than other "reality" tv shows. It is staged and scripted for drama. I live very near their "homestead" which is only 10 miles on a paved road from a town that has a Safeway among other stores and services.
I'm not saying that they aren't trying to live a semi-subsistence lifestyle, and will be much better off than most if they have to be self reliant.
But... Here is an example of a made for tv moment. Atz-Lee and Jane take what is at least a 10 mile snowmachine ride to go ice fishing because they are running low on meat. The gas and oil the spent to do that would have got them to town and bought enough meat for a couple of meals.
Watch it with the knowledge that it is just entertainment.
