The Adventures of the Wilderness Family

Synopsis: City dweller Skip leaves his urban life behind indefinitely to seek fresh air for his daughter's health. His wife begrudgingly sacrifices domestic comforts, while their darling boy Toby, their daughter Jenny, and their dog Crust have the time of their lives roaming in the wild. Meeting wildlife however has its pros and cons, especially as not all bears are nearly as tame as a local glutton and a pair of cubs in need of adoption. They soon learn to love every moment with family- including old man Boomer and animal friends.
Director(s): Stewart Raffill

That's fine for now.

We might take some more blood.

More blood?

No, no. Dad?

I thought you said, we can't

be doing that any more.

Well, I can only agree

with the other doctor's.

We need more allergy tests, and

just continue with the innoculations.

But, we've been through all of that.

What about all the medications,

she's been taking for the last year?

Well, those were to

control the condition.


She's getting worse, doc.

What do you think causes it?

If I knew that, we'd have the cure.

Could be anything.

Something in the air, the water,

maybe even the stress of living here.

What's the matter?

I'm sorry.

What is it?

I just don't like

the way our life is going.

I'm always unloading on

you and the kids.

I'm worried about Jenny.

I hate my job and I just

hate this stinking city.

Was I lacking?

I don't know whether it's us

or the way that we're living ...

but, it's just not working any more.

Well, what do you

want to do about it?

I want to get out of here.

I want to go do the things we talked

about, when we were younger.

And what are we staying here for?

Look at this place.

I don't know, Skip.

It's a big move.

Well, what about the kids?

What about Jenny?

Getting Jenny out of here,

would be the best thing.

What do ya think?

Guess we can try.

Are you sure?

I'm sure we can't stay

like this much longer.

I mean we really clear out of here.

We can sell everything.

We'll buy some land.

We'll build our own house.

We'll raise our own food.

We'll grow our food!

-Oh God.

We'll live off the land.

I'm serious!

Let's ... We're going to do it!

Right ?!


Let's do it! Come on!

We're getting out of here !!

You folks sure you know

what you're getting into up here?


It sure is a wild life.

I'd think twice, before

I brought my family up.

We thought alot more

than twice about it.

You know how many people

come up here to live and quit?

Alot, I imagine.

About 99 per cent.

Look Dad! Look down there.

You see them?

Yep. Mountain sheep up in the

high country for the summer.

Oh, it's going to

be just beautiful.

Oh, look.

We're gonna catch a moose.

My dad can milk it.

You can do that can't ya?

I heard, Gus, an old

mountain man done it.

There's alot of open

space out there.

You think we'll be okay, mom?

I sure hope so.

How much further is it?

Just over the ridge.

Can we get out?

Come on.

We're going in the water?

In the water.


Well, what do think?

Wow, it's beautiful.


Dad, look at this boat.

Which way is Macy's?

25 miles west of here.

Three families living

in a Ranger Station.

Do they have a boat there?

The only way out of here,

is in my airplane.

What about the river?

I wouldn't want to try it.

You got the radio?

-Right here.

Well, if you're ever ready to quit,

you can always reach me with it.

Thanks, I'll remember that.

What about the

Rocky Mountain Report?

Oh, every evening or during the night,

you can catch all the local scandal.

What's the Rocky Mountain Report?

It's a radio station, that's how

people communicate up here.

Well, this is your last chance.

We're staying.

Good luck.

Thanks alot.

Hey, come around and see us,

when you're in the neighborhood.

I'll do that.

Goodbye, young lady.


Goodbye, Toby!

Thanks again.

We're on our own.

I sure hope we can make it.

It's better than I ever

dreamed it would be.


Let's get to the cabin.

Is that it?

That's it.

Hey, this ain't no bigger

than our kitchen back home.

This is just temporary, we'll build

a much bigger place out here.
