Homesteading & Off-Grid Training For Today ~ Preparedness & Survival For Tomorrow

For those of you not familiar with our family my name is Tammy Trayer and my Mountain Man and Mountain Boy have been living traditionally 100% off-grid in Northern Idaho since 2010.  We have been journaling our life and lifestyle at  You can also find my Podcast, Mountain Woman Radio archived on our site here or you can subscribe on iTunes.

My book How To Embrace An Off-Grid Lifestyle was the catalyst that led us to the creation of the Trayer Wilderness Academy. I found in writing the book I just couldn’t teach the skills simply with just words.  We were already recording some in-depth videos and writing small content specific e-books and we decided that this was the perfect time to create our academy which would give us the ability and means to teach you the skills that we feel everyone should have.  We look forward to the opportunity to get to know you.   We are offering a Skill Of The Month Membership and independent classes as well.   ♥
