Fun and Wholesome despite exaggerations and scripts...
I completely understand that the Kilchers have money, aren't as isolated as they appear to be, and often either exaggerate or have scripted stories...however homesteading is a mindset and lifestyle not defined by isolation or acreage. I have an 8 acre hobby farm a minute from the local gas and grocery and still use similar techniques with similar equipment. My Wife and I have careers in Emergency Nursing, but we have chosen a lifestyle of self-reliance, resourcefulness, and family values much like that portrayed by the Kilchers. Our young children are independent, proud, and have common sense far beyond their years, and I can't help but believe much of that comes from the way they are being raised. Fun show to watch with quirky and flawed characters where I'm not only entertained, but find myself mesmerized by the Alaskan scenery and can almost smell the fresh air.
