I saw this movie about 15 years ago and would love to but it but we cannot remember the title. If anyone can help, we would be very grateful. The movie is about a family that goes on a camping trip in a RV (motorhome). When they stop along the way, the young boy gets out to look at the scenery, the RV rolls backwards, and falls off a cliff killing both of his parents. The boy is forced to hike out through the wilderness and runs into an old hermit who forces him to learn how to live off the land. The hermit seems very mean to the boy at first but he needed to be because the old man was dying and knew the boy would need those skills in order to survive. In the and, the old man died and the boy survived with the skills taught to him by the old man.
