I remember seeing this story at some point. It’s sad that there are still people living in that kind of poverty.

Must have been a different simple life than this one. From the people who recorded it:

This video represents our July 1st 2001 visit with Gene & Hansel at their homestead in eastern TN and in the lovely appalachian mountains complete from start to finish. I hope that you enjoy this experience as much as we did

I've not watched it yet, but it sounds like they visited those people on more than one occasion. This youtube video is probably a follow up visit.

Thanks for posting. I especially like the Diane Sawyer piece. She's a Kentucky native (as am I).

Yup. They're a rugged bunch, because they have to be. But they'd give you the shirt off their back, and their last scrap of food if you needed it.
