Tammy is a Christian, self-reliant Mom living off-grid and living untraditionally in Idaho with her husband and son. She and her husband Glen––whom she regards as her Mountain Man & the cowboy of her dreams––and family live untraditionally off-grid and enjoy educating their son on autism, gluten-free and dairy-free cooking, self-reliance, wilderness survival and so much more.
Tammy says she is living and enjoying her life and sharing it with others! It can be sketchy being 100% off-grid. The entire family are “embracers” of the wilderness lifestyle, and have built their own log home of their dreams in the forest of the NW Idaho forests. They practice and enjoy the “less is more” lifestyle, and find the far woods and hills more rewarding than they ever imagined!
Even with the restrictions of being totally off-grid, Tammy is able to be a contributing writer for these magazines, chronicling her homesteading and pioneer lifestyle to help others achieve their independence from the urban environment:
- The New Pioneer Magazine
- Self-Reliance Illustrated Magazine
- Prepare Magazine
- American Frontiersman Magazine
