He made the sled two episodes ago and made that awesome diaper table last ep. I'm telling you, that thing is the bee's knees. 

Yeah, I wasn't saying he stopped inventing.  I was saying you don't hear him bragging about his genius so much.

This episode was not pleasant to watch, with Bird repeatedly trying to band the goat.  Gives me the willies.

It was also unusual in that most of the actions seemed relatively sane - taking care of the goat, delivering a foal, the kids worrying about their father, No-uh and Rhain abandoning the fairy tale caste (for the moment) and moving down the mountain to be close to the hospital. 

The only real insanity came from Bear, painting a mural on his skid row shipping container home that would make a five year old embarrassed to display.

Rhain Alisha is very pregnant-uh, and is getting ready to deliver the baby-uh.

Next week is the season finale already.  The seasons are six episodes long now. That can't bode well for the Brown clan, can it?

And then they drop the container next to the first one with the mural facing against it - wtf?

Why do they never discuss why Billy has a breathing problem? Asthma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis? Heart condition? Does he have a rescue inhaler? Does he still smoke?

No mystery there, I'd be covering that thing up too.

Bird said something about pneumonia, but I don't think that was Billy's issue.  It appears to me that he has some sort of asthma/emphysema/COPD issues.  Probably related to smoking, but maybe not.  Some people don't like to discuss their medical problems, it's a very personal subject, so that's probably why they haven't gone into much depth on it.

The look on the construction guys face when Noah told him he needed the blocks to build a castle: PRICELESS.

Good grief. The poor goat. Surely production would not let idiot birdbrain do that to him.

I watched part of an episode last night for the first time in a long time.  Someone correct me if I'm wrong. Did Birdbrain put up the walls of her "birdhouse" and then say she was going to bring in her cats so THEY could tell her where to put the windows?  And THEN she hoisted a window up, leaned it up against a solid wall and THEN said, "This looks like a good place"?  She didn't frame out the windows BEFORE putting up the wall?

Oh . . . and why don't they just buy scrubbies at Walmart (since they seem to be there ALL THE TIME), rather than using dry vegetation ("I think it's sterile, but I'm not sure") to "wash" their dishes?  Without soap.  Leaving copious amounts of "brownie mix" in the bottom of a "clean" bowl.

Annnnnnd I'm back to not watching, just enjoying the snark.

I just need to point out that Bird deer hunting was either staged or fully illegal.

When hunting with modern rifles in Washington, one must wear an orange safety vest.

Probably because even he realizes what a huge bullet that poor girl narrowly dodged 😂

Well, that didn't last long.  Both Bear's marriage and this "season" in general.

So I hear they somehow acquired some land in Canada now.  Sounds like they will be moving yet again.  Gee, what about that barn they supposedly constructed?  And of course, Bear's dumpster dream house?  😉

They might as well call themselves the "(Anything but) Alaskan Bush People."  Heh.

Sorry, maybe I'm a monster but having another No-uh in the world doesn't warm my heart.

Everyone is an individual, and while one may share traits with their parents, they are still their own person.

I bet Bear will have some EXTREEEEEME child support payments in his future.  😉

Yeah, just when you think this messed up family couldn't get more messed up...I read about that pregnancy news.  Wow.  I feel so bad for that kid.  What a sad bunch of nutjobs to be born into.  Yikes.

I can't imagine this series being very long for the world.  They only had about 5-6 episodes this season, right?  And even the true believers have to be a bit weirded out by now.  At least you would think so.

I don't know how well their barter system will work for that. He may have to go to jail or get a job or something.

Might not be too bad if she needs something done, they often trade labor.  Child payment due, so the whole family turns out to crookedly put up some drywall in her house.  Just don't let Bear do the painting. 

Unless, of course, Bear gets custody lol.

Seriously?  They probably looked at those "houses" they built and realized they couldn't live in them.  Better move to Canada.  My more suspicious side makes me think they're trying to avoid some sort of problem with the US government, or maybe they found out Washington state wants them to pay property taxes.  Probably not cheap with all the acreage they have.

Funny article.  Maybe they should have called No-uh's kid North Star Second.

I suspect the state/county/neighborhood wants them gone.  I wonder if they have permission from Canada to live and work there?  Filming is work, and Canada is likely to get a bit grumpy if they just head on over the border and set up "camp".

Maybe Billy needs the money and has to flip the land.  Besides, no one expected them to actually spend a winter in the bush, did they?  Canadian Bush People.  No doubt the official reason will be that Billy couldn't tolerate the altitude with his repiratory issues.  I wonder what will happen to their animals, storyline-wise?

Against my better judgement, I watched last nights "new" post-season garbage unaired footage episode.  A few things jumped out at me:

They said that the mountain they're on used to be a gold mine, and they showed an old miner's cabin.  They said something about how the Browns might be able to do some mining there.  Now it makes sense.  This must be the reason Billy bought this land, he probably figured he would be able to strike it rich.  He has a history of gold fever, and this is likely one of his hair brained schemes.

Gabe seemed especially cheerful in this "episode", speaking in a British accent and cracking jokes.  It made a big contrast to when he was so sullen and wouldn't say anything the season that Ami had lung cancer.  I guess no one bothered to tell him it was all just in the script lol.

To go off topic a bit, Raising Wild is getting hard to watch.  The one kid who cooks and has a lisp is hard to listen to.  Then there's the youngest boy with the long blonde hair that they seem to be raising as a girl.

Yeah on that unaired footage episode...that abandoned cabin they were looting didn't really look like it was abandoned. It was a heck of lot better looking than anything they've ever built. I think the Washington State Police need to see that video. 😁

I was a little surprised one of them didn't want to move into it.

If you have a certain amount of money and promise to start a business with it, you can get into Canada (and most other countries).  I however suspect that these yokels weren't going to let the guvmint stand in their way (e.g. living and building on national forest land without permission) and would just, you know, go for a visit and not return.  Hard to fly under the radar with a TV show, but I'm sure they'd try.

Well this is what I thought but many of those programs have stopped and even now to get an investor visa is a huge, long, expensive process. All that is left is the Quebec one which doesn't restrict where you live but requires a lot of paperwork and proof of money/assets. What do the Browns have? Reusable Walmart shopping bags?
