I used to watch that stuff but the producers always have to create drama. That's what TV people like to see.

Most of those shows are like that. The logging one with Buckin Billy Ray (that guy knows his stuff), a power lineman show a couple years ago was a real joke!

I did some tree trimming a few years. Always thought real logging would be interesting. Definitely a job for a young man.

Chip and his family seem like the most down to earth realist "reality stars" on that or any show.

The Hailstones are our favorites too. Chip is a Trapperman member, Caribou.

Love the Hailstones on the show. They display day to day living. The rest of them create drama.

Why the heck did he wait until a winter storm to make a new sled ? The show is made for people who know nothing about the outdoors. Sue is always worrying about a Wolverine eating her.

I think the last Alaskan show was legit, but your right the rest of them are entertainment, for those with little knowledge of the outdoors.
And last frontier was a joke, check out the Kilchers net worth. Always cracked me up, they had to shoot a bear or something so the had meat for the freezer, while they owned a herd of beef cattle. LOL

Makes sense to get projects done during a storm. Not much else to do to stay busy.

Did you watch the episode ?

I would agree if he built it inside a shop or a garage, what the heck is the sense in building outside in a winter storm where he had to take the lumber inside to thaw while he was building it , and the wind almost blew the plywood away. Warped thinking in my book.

If you liked " Last Alaskans " Jim Cambell is working on doing a new show similar but from a different perspective.
