Movie lovers will no doubt remember the Von Trapps, the family made famous by the film The Sound of Music. At the end of the film the Von Trapps fled Austria as the Germans were invading prior to the start of World War II, crossing the Alps in hopes of evading capture. But what happened to them after that was left up to the viewers imagination.
Recently, Richard Bangs, host of the television show Adventures with Purpose, went looking for the Von Trapps to discover what had become of them. Turns out they settled on a farm in Vermont, where their descendants now run a resort that reflects their Austrian heritage including plenty of outdoor activities. The video below gives fans of the movie an update on what happened with the family after the credits rolled.
