RUGGED WEST: Cast Video
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.
