Spontaneous, Surprising & Enjoyable!
Scott and Katie had me laughing and worrying for them at the same time. I enjoyed Katie's spirit and how she her perception was so different from her sister's on her ride out west.... The trail ride was quite an experience.
Scott personality was a bit shocking to people/town, which was a bit odd, but I really enjoyed how Michelle brought them together as a family with her sister Jillian and Wade.
It will be interesting to see where this series continues to grow.
