Kaitlyn says she is very concerned about her older sister, Autumn, who has been camping in the Arizona desert with her partner, Mark, since the couple lost their jobs a year and a half ago. She says she has nothing against living a “nomadic” lifestyle. Still, in her opinion, the way that Autumn and Mark are choosing to live is neither safe nor suitable.

“You still need to be able to supply yourself with basic needs like running water [and] food,” she says. The couple admits they haul water in to their campsite every day and sometimes scrounges for food.

Kaitlyn says she’s thought about going out to Arizona, picking up her sister, and taking her home to Wisconsin. She claims that Autumn has a “reckless attitude” that has led her to get into dangerous situations.

“I’m afraid of having to bury my sister,” says Kaitlyn.
