Storyline

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live your life off the grid? Have you wished you could shed the complications of modern society and live in the wilderness, using only the things nature has provided? Meet Eustace Conway, Tom Oar and Marty Meierotto, three men who have devoted their lives to survival in its simplest form. But how simple is it really? From the rugged Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina to the seven-month-long winters on the Yaak River in Montana to the frigid northern range of Alaska, the country is full of some very unforgiving terrain. Watch as these men face off against mudslides, falling trees, ravaging weather and even hungry animals, to make sure they obtain the food and supplies they will need to make it through the brutal winter months ahead.

Great show
19 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I seen the rating on here and was pretty shocked with how low it was. I love the show and haven grown up in the mountains in upstate NY i can say it is pretty accurate. I'm no mountain man but i am no stranger to the way of life either. The show is authentic so ignore any haters.

The only thing about it that i find annoying is that they repeat themselves way too much. I lost track of how many times i heard bears are dangerous. Or you can't fight the weather... Other than that small gripe i enjoy it very much.

I think more Americans need to learn how to survive and live off of the land, i fear we have become far too separated from nature. The show might help to actually teach people a thing or two. Nothing too complex as there is an element of drama for TV.

Hopefully it will spark some interest in the freedoms out country should be enjoying rather than the hustle and bustle of the average 9-5 wageslave. These men are truly free. You have to respect that!
