December 15, 2014 by Tammy Trayer 5 Comments We are surrounded by wilderness here on our Idaho homestead.
We live a very traditional life out here so a lot of our time in the wild actually has a purpose. Any time we leave our property, whether on foot or in a vehicle, you can be sure that we have our gear and are prepared for anything. We live in a very vast location and you never know what may be around the next corner, when your truck may break down miles and miles from home, when the weather may turn, or when even an unexpected injury will happen.
Our predators are typically the 4 legged kind, but you never know when you may run into the 2 legged kind as well.
Before I met my husband (aka Mountain Man), I was already busy running wild in the mountains and enjoying the outdoors. Ladies, if you have a very chivalrous man and maybe even a proud man that wants to show you he is fully capable of taking care of yourself and your family, that is a very genuine man.
Let’s say you are all out camping, and one of your children wonders off and gets lost. The entire family should know what gear to carry, what to carry on their person, how to light a fire, how to build a shelter, how to get safe drinking water and how to sustain themselves in any situation.
This is just one part of a series of posts where I will provide how-to information and videos that you can watch with your children or as a family.

Tammy resides very traditionally off-grid in the northern Idaho wilderness with her family. It took a lot of years, but I finally convinced my kids that their EDC is extremely important.
The advanced standard course takes the skills from the Basic Standard Course and builds on them to enable the survivor to have more skill sets in order to increase their bushcraft comfort and understanding. Event details may change at any time, always check with the event organizer when planning to attend this event or purchase tickets.

Hundreds, possibly thousands of people had contact with the doctor who despite having Ebola symptoms for days decided it was a good idea to take the Subway, go bowling at a trendy New York bar, use multiple forms of public transportation, and visit the High Line park in Manhattan.

The doctor, who was treating Ebola patients in Guinea, returned to the United States and was allowed to wander throughout New York without anyone in the government monitoring his condition. Spencer, who returned from West Africa about 10 days ago, developed a fever, nausea, pain and fatigue late Wednesday night. Two great videos of Steve Watts briefly discussing and demonstrating the skills and context of knapped points. Steve Watts directs the Aboriginal Studies Program and the Traditional Outdoor Skills Program at the Schiele Museum of Natural History in Gastonia, North Carolina. We may be scouting for a good hunting spot, harvesting our meat or firewood for the year, taking a 20 mile hike for some casual exercise, or even panning for some gold (really!).
Not only do we have our gear, but we always have additional clothing and we each have a firearm. Our safety is a top priority and I feel that survival moms should know how to protect themselves and their children.
Many are not used to the outdoors the way my Mountain Man and I are, which is why I want to take you through the steps for getting and keeping your family educated, trained and ready.
I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you and hope to encourage you to embrace these tasks as a family. She is a Christian, freelance writer, soon to be author, web designer, pioneer, homesteader, avid outdoorswoman, huntress, frugally self sufficient, Momma of two beautiful children, homeschool teacher and advocate for one amazing young Mountain Boy with autism & aspergers, married to her best friend, her cowboy and Mountain Man of her dreams. We work and go to school in areas where it should be a simple enough matter to walk home if necessary, but you never know what will happen.
Really appreciate the kind words and YES I feel women really need to be educated and children. They will surely be thankful for your guidance as they continue to get older and those things in their pockets will continue to be useful and more will be added. Craig Spencer, became the first person in the New York City to test positive for the Ebola virus Thursday, setting off a search for anyone who might have come into contact with him. The doctor began feeling sluggish a couple of prior to that, but it wasn’t until Thursday, when he developed 103-degree fever, that he contacted health officials. Watts is the author of Practicing Primitive: A Handbook of Aboriginal Skills, Gibbs Smith Publishers, 2004.
I feel very strongly that women should not only carry a firearm, but be very knowledgeable on the gun they carry, know gun safety and know how to very accurately use their gun.

Embracing things as a family is a great opportunity to grow as a family and also empower and nurture your children. If you, yourself, are not interested in learning and allow your husband to do everything while you are camping or in the outdoors, you are not doing yourself any favors either. It is getting dark and you have been unsuccessful in finding them.  Does your child know enough to survive, lost, for a night without you? I carry a lighter in my pocket, a pocket knife on my jeans, and my Keltek .380 P-3AT is holstered on my belt. The course is 100% taught in the field with hands on training and there is no class room lecture time at all! One final comment: the nurses from Dallas are declared free of the virus, yet the World Health Organization is reporting that 21 days quarantine may not be enough. This is a subject you will find in one of my upcoming posts, but I thought I would give you a little food for thought for those of you that do not carry. As part of this new series here on The Survival Mom blog, I will walk you through what we carry in our packs, the varying ways we start fires, build shelters, hunt for food, etc.
This course is a transition course that will begin to test your survival skills and take your basic skill sets to a whole other level. I am thankful for the chivalrous nature of my Mountain Man, BUT when it comes to being in the outdoors, he knows I can hold my own and he expects me to know how to handle and take care of myself. The purpose of the wilderness survival standard courses is to slowly transition you into being able to live completely off the land. So if you want to learn how to increase your bushcraft comfort and survivability, then this is the course for you. ATTENTION: You do not have to take our survival standard basic course to attend the Advanced Standard!
