Homestead Rescue is a Discovery Channel show that follows an expert homesteader, his wife, and their children as they travel around the country helping families who struggle to survive off-the-grid. The show premiered in 2016 and has gained immense popularity since then. It has helped numerous people learn how to live independently.
In the show, Marty Raney and his family are able to help these families in need of a hand up by teaching them the survival skills needed to survive off-the-grid. They also teach them how to live more efficiently by using sustainable resources. The Raneys work hard to make sure that the families they assist are equipped with the right tools and knowledge to become successful at homesteading.
In order to keep the show running smoothly, the raneys need to get enough rest. In order to do that, they sleep in a tent. This way they can be ready for the next day’s shoot. The tent is made from high-quality materials and can withstand the elements. The raneys also have a dog in the camp with them for extra security.
