Trayer Wilderness at Sustainable Preparedness ExpoI am really excited to share some news with you!!  Myself and my Mountain Man will be teaching  two different workshops at the Sustainable Preparedness Expo in Spokane, WA this spring.  Together, we will be sharing our knowledge and the importance of Wilderness Survival and also focusing on how we have chosen to make a living with Living It! Loving It and Making A Living!  As you know we live 100% off-grid with solar power and are homesteading traditionally in northern Idaho and it is our passion and pleasure to help inspire and educate others to embrace a more preparedness and self reliant lifestyle!
