After spending almost $500,000 on the new property they bought in Washington, the Browns realized that it might not have been the best decision.


The Alaskan Bush People, who spent almost one year in Los Angeles while Ami Brown was undergoing her treatments to battle stage four lung cancer, recently moved to Okanogan County in Washington.

Radar Online revealed that the family got ‘physically stuck’ while they were trying to go to their new house. There was so much mud on the road that their vehicle couldn’t go through it.

That county’s Board of Commissioners revealed that a permit was issued to them by Public Works so they could place gravel in the soft areas and avoid the same from happening again.


A county official shared that the house where the Brown family bought their 400-acre property is close to a ‘primitive road,’ which is a road that has less than 100 vehicle trips a day.

Most primitive roads don’t get as much maintenance as they should, and the one near the family’s house is unpaved. If things weren’t difficult enough, the area has been dealing with ‘a lot of issues with rain’ lately.

The family has opted for hiring a contractor to throw gravel down as a way to fix the problem as soon as possible.


One of the most interesting aspects about the rural county the Browns moved is that it is the size of Connecticut, but it only has about 42,000 residents, which means that there are more than a few primitive roads.

The family has not shared more details about Ami’s condition, but In Touch Weekly reported that her cancer is in remission. They pointed out that she must visit the hospital every three months to have an eye on it, but she is healthy.
