6. Atz Kilcher & His Family Took Thanksgiving To Another Level
On the episode of Alaska The Last Frontier that aired on 18 November 2018, Atz and his family took Thanksgiving from the homestead for a special twist. Like most families, Thanksgiving is a handed down celebration and since the Kilchers are awash in family traditions as well, each person from the family brought something special to share to the dinner table.

The week before, Atz’s son encountered a predator while building a bridge in the backcountry and Otto Kilcher’s hay season nearly came to a cease when a broken tractor compelled him to get creative.
Coming back to the topic of Thanksgiving, Atz and his family built their own trestle table for the big family feast. He had been busy putting together long pieces of lumber in an attempt to make a larger trestle table to hold the whole family while describing the table he wanted to make,
This is a trestle table, so instead of four legs you just kind of have two little walls, one at each end… then to keep those from wobbling, you put the trestle in between when it all comes together. Pretty cool!
Finally, after a long time of crafting and designing, the heirloom quality of the table was ready and Shane went to the extent of saying that the table would be historical in their family legend. And there’s no doubt about that.
