Marty Raney's Lifestyle with Wife Mollee Roestel and Children

Marty Raney started his journey of mountain guide in 1974 when he started his adventure in Southeast Alaska. According to Discovery, Raney's first house was a floating logging camp on Prince of Wales Island.

Before starting the austere life in Alaska, he got married to wife Mollee Roestel in 1974. The family suffered several problems there, such as power cut, water scarcity, plumbing, or heat issues. However, the family learned to live in drastic situations away from almost all of the modern technologies.

Marty and his wife Mollee have given birth to four children; daughters Misty Raney and Melanee Raney, and sons Matthew Raney and Miles Raney. Their all four kids grew up doing stonework, log work, and extracting natural building materials from the land.

Marty's children Matt and Misty Raney have already got married. Matt is recently married to his wife Katie while daughter Misty is married to Maciah Bilodeau with whom she has a 5-year-old son.
