    My brain is Swiss cheese :Bawling:

    Okay there was a PBS show like 1800's house but it was filmed in Canada. I think it was called Pioneer Quest or something like that?

    There were 2 couples, a Christian missionary guy and his wife (he played guitar). There was a younger couple too.

    Anyone have links or know the exact name of the show? I'd greatly appreciate it! :)

    Thanks!

    But is cost 150.00 to get all of the episodes, you can google it and find several different sites.
    I don't suppose anyone has it that they would be willing to let me borrow it for a few weeks? Maybe.

    Thanks

    It was Pioneer Quest. There were also several others done along the same theme by the same producer, Jamie Brown. Alliance Atlantis was the production company, along with Frantic Films (Jamie Brown's company).

    Pioneer Quest was the first, then I believe they did Quest for the Bay (fur traders following the route from Winnipeg to York Factory with a full longboat), Quest for Gold (retracing the route to the Klondike), and Quest for the Sea (a Newfoundland cod fishing outpost circa 1930)

    All were wonderful, but I thought Pioneer Quest was the best. My husband prefers Quest for the Bay. They rerun regularly on PBS and the History Channel, I believe.
