I just found out about this show and I'm loving it! On Discovery Tues 9/8c. Hard to think this would be staged because the actual people are physically doing this type of work/living/lifestyle. Its gave me some great ideas already from just a few shows. Check it out when you get a chance, it is way much better than your scripted shows.

been watching every episode, lovit. I like Atz, he a crazy sumbish. These are the kind of folks who see a bear the size of a buffalo near their herd so they walk over and give it a kick in the ass

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.

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.
