Who is Misty Raney and How Old is She?
Misty Raney was born on the 9th of November, 1981 in the city of Sitka in the U.S. state of Alaska. Her parents are Mollee (née Roestel) and Marty Raney. Being one of her parents’ four children, she has three siblings. She is known to have had quite a very unique and interesting upbringing.
Growing up in a remote homestead in Haines, Alaska, Misty Raney had to deal with different challenges associated with the terrain and the climate of the area. Her family lived away from civilization and as a result, they had to provide all the basic necessities of living by themselves. They derived everything they needed for their daily living from their immediate environment including food, clean water, meat, and shelter. This earned her crucial life skills in different outdoor activities. Alongside her siblings, Misty grew up learning the family’s building business “Alaska Stone and Log” which involves the use of natural building materials from the land. She is also equally skilled in farming, hunting and several other areas all of which have turned out to be relevant in her eventual journey to stardom.
Now an adult, Misty Raney is a farmer, builder, hunter, and a surfer. She came into the limelight as one of the main stars of the reality TV series, Homestead Rescue.

The Raneys, having lived and survived in the wilderness for the greater part of their lives, are very well equipped for this task. Misty’s father, Marty Raney, is the lead star of the show and is widely known as a survival expert. He had previously featured on another reality show Ultimate Survival Alaska.
