California Mountain Retreat

Aired on Jan 21, 2017

The Johnson family are packing their bags and leaving the sunshine of Carolina beach for the mountains of northern California to see if they’ve got what it takes to live off-the-grid. Can this blended family of three teenage girls and an eight-year-old boy work together to fulfil their parents dream? Or will life unplugged be too much? After viewing three off-the-grid homes, the Johnsons will pick one to live in and test out. The family will hunt for turkey, work on a farm, nurse a sick pig and have to live with no electronics. After four days unplugged will they go running back to Carolina or make a permanent off-the-grid move?
