Sarah Palin Has 'Flippin' Fun' on TLC Reality Show

Will America's best-known hockey mom hike up a snowy mountain, go bear-watching and let reality-show cameras into her home? You betcha!

In a trailer for Sarah Palin's Alaska, the former Republican vice-presidential candidate and governor of the Last Frontier State is seen doing all that and much more.

"Oh gosh," she says as she hikes up a snow-blanketed trail. "We are somewhere that people dream about."

The show follows Palin, 46, on "flippin' fun" Alaskan adventures – with no shortage of wildlife – for an eight-week run, beginning Nov. 14 on TLC.

"I'd rather be doing this than in some stuffy, old political office," she says. "I'd rather be out here being free."
