I’m not big on reality shows, but one centered around the Jackson family would be must-see TV in my opinion.  They are some of the nicest and  most entertaining folks I’ve ever had the pleasure to hang with, so it is pretty exciting to see that this is really happening with a show called “Jackson Wild” which is set to premiere on the Travel Channel on October 4th at noon.

Here is the description of the show from the Travel Channel’s website:

“What if you could make a living by traveling the world with your family? The Jacksons are the “First Family of Kayaking” and are doing just that. EJ Jackson, a 4-time world champion and adventure author and founder of Jackson Kayak. Just as he promotes kayaking as a family sport, he has inspired his own family to become world champions. They paddle their way all over the planet, including Africa, Austria, Colorado and Ottawa, for world competitions and to find unpaddled water adventures everywhere. But they’re not alone, the rest of the family is always along for the ride. Along with EJ’s wife Kristine and youngest son KC, Emily and Nick’s toddler Tucker and Dane’s girlfriend Mary, the family pushes themselves to experience the world the Jackson way: Extremely, together.”
