Swan Valley Ranch,  Jackson Hole, Wyoming


Idaho does not equal Wyoming and Wyoming does not equal Idaho.
Yes. That is rather confusing. They used to own the domain-name: http://www.teenranch.org back in 2004 which is now belonging to some kind of activity in Scotland.

Having investigated it on the Internet Archive these 3 places where mentioned. Some years ago Rob Dias wrote a piece about how hard it was when he worked for another program before he started his own operation. We know that they were raided and made a deal to move out of state in exchange for the case to be dropped. We are looking to find this piece of information. A raid is always good information to throw at people regardless of the outcome. The battle has to be moved to their part of the field so they can be in the defensive instead of offensive.

Yeah that is interesting.

What state was the raid in and roughly what year?

A couple of years ago another volunteer found article mentioning Idaho. However the crisis closed the newspapers and the articles about the raid and later settlement is nowhere to be found. We are talking year 1999.

I know the Roloff's and their ilk got raided on a regular basis over the years.
