Her Own Untraditional Idaho, Tammy Trayer

Tammy Trayer, author of Mountain Woman Journals, is a freelance writer, an author, a radio show hostess, and a longtime web designer. She specializes in the outdoors environment, is an active entrepreneur, a true pioneer women, an avid hunter, an accomplished outdoorswoman, experienced homesteader, active homeschool mother and wife.

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:

Tammy’s accomplishments can be found online at these websites:

We had an outstanding trouble-free telephone connection during our interview—testimony to husband Glen’s prowess with equipment and tools.

Tammy admits they wouldn’t be where they are now if it were not for God’s hand in things. She says the family feels nudged by inspirational guidance to be able to:

  • Educate their son
  • Share their knowledge and lifestyle
  • Inspire others to be self-reliant

Tammy is indeed willing and eager to share her knowledge, skills, and talents about the family’s unconventional and non-traditional lifestyle. On the show, she discussed with Doctor Prepper her love of:

  • Writing
  • Her radio show
  • Family’s current YouTube series
  • Their MultiFlame Tools
