Rugged West
The Pioneer Spirit is Alive and Well in the Pacific Northwest

Within the forested back country and rugged wilds of the Pacific Northwest, charismatic folks are tapping in the Pioneer spirit by making their own way - either completely off the grid or with minimal connections to society as we know it. They gentle wild mustangs, harvest wild mushrooms, hunt for scrap metal, forage for the perfect wood to carve into furniture – whatever it takes to survive and thrive under rugged conditions. It’s a challenging but rewarding way of life, despite the constant risks of uncertainty in food sources, materials, wild animals, and constantly changing and unforgiving weather.

With multiple groups/individuals available there is always something interesting happening, no matter season of the year it is. Each episode has the flexibility to follow the storylines of a couple of different individual endeavors, or stick with one particular (and more involved) storyline from start to finish. The majority of any expository dialog is delivered by the participants as they go about their business. An off-camera narrator provides short introductions to each episode and also helps maintain story continuity as needed when the action switches from location to location.
