Hidden in the Alaska backwoods lives a simple huntress, living off the land and simple necessities. She lives "off the grid", building all that she owns and uses by hand. The huntress is out this morning for her monthly meat rations. Once her kill is made, she will sit down for her morning bowl of cereal.
Our Step List
1. Gun is fired from the huntress towards the deer.
2. Deer knocks into teeter totter.
3. Teeter totter knocks over upright log.
4. Log falls into rat trap.
5. Rat trap snaps closed, pulling a string and wooden dowel from under the gutter.
6. Gutter falls down.
7. A golf ball rolls down gutter chutes, hitting piece of wood.
8. Piece of wood triggers a rat trap, snapping it closed.
9. A string attached to the rat trap pulls a weight set off of the windowsill.
10. The weight set falls off of the top of the chicken.
11. The chicken jumps into a ball.
12. The ball rolls down the cages into a weighted cup.
13. Cup is further weighed down by the ball, forcing the fishing net forward to attempt to catch a fish.
14. The fishing net knocks over a log at the edge of the pond.
15. The log falls into a mousetrap, setting it off.
16. The mousetrap snaps, pulling a fishing line taught. This releases a clothespin off of a zip line.
17. The clothespin releases a caterpillar to move down the zip line into the house, hitting a mousetrap.
18. The mousetrap snaps, pulling a toothpick out of a tube.
19. The toothpick being pulled out of the tube releases a marble.
20. The marble falls, turning on the power inside the house. This also turns on a hair dryer.
21. The hair dryer begins to blow, releasing a butterfly to go down a second zip line.
22. The butterfly knocks over a book about the Birds of Minnesota.
