We provide friendly, professional instruction in the subjects of Overland Navigation, Survival and Combat Survival. Our courses are specialised and as such the instructor to student ratio is never greater than 1:2, and often 1:1 on certain courses. As all of our courses are residential, you will be learning in a warm, quiet and friendly environment nestled in the heart of the Sierra Cabrera; with the instructor/student ratio being as it is, the high personal instruction time ensures that learning is quick, easy and above all stress free. All courses are based on the mastery of each skill in turn and are not time based in any way; this ensures that should you find a certain skill difficult to master, the instructor will spend more time with you at no additional cost until the correct level of proficiency has been attained. Our outdoor adventure holidays are run at a pace that suits your fitness and ability; we are able to be extremely flexible during your stay with us as the majority of the activities are in-house. Hiking, scrambling, rock climbing, running, mountain biking, snorkelling, old mine workings, subterranean passages, spectacular caves and ancient burial grounds are there for the adventurous. The area is so incredible that parts of the film ‘Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade’ were filmed locally. The more adventurous may wish to summit Mulhacen, mainland Spain’s highest peak at over 11,400ft or explore the old gold mining shafts and tunnels at Rodalquilar as part of their adventure holiday. All this adds up to a great time, all the time. The Importance of Geography To state that our Overland Navigation courses involve geography may seem a little obvious; however, it may seem a little less obvious to state the importance of geography in Survival and Combat Survival. This importance is such that it may make the difference between life and death. We continually study the important correlations between geomorphology and our course subjects; this enables us to constantly improve the course content in order to stay at the forefront of outdoor education in these specialist subjects.
We are a small local business who came from San Diego California that moved to beautiful Sandpoint Idaho. When people ask how we got up here my dad says "we ran out of gas". We have been making Mexican food in Sandpoint since 1995 and hope to keep going for many years more. We appreciate all the business we get and we try to make everyone happy, although that is a hard thing to do :). We are not perfect but we try to have good customer service and do it with a smile. We are known for good food and hope that if you come you experience the taste of eating good Mexican food. Please remember there are quit a few different styles of Mexican food so do not be disappointed if it is not a style you are used to. And please remember we are cash or check only.

How to Vacation With a Baby: A No Tears Approach
by Miles Young, Whether you have a newborn or a baby that’s a few months old, or even a toddler, that is no reason to put your travel adventures on hold. With just a bit of planning and preparation, you can enjoy your vacation.
Perks of Traveling with Baby
You may not realize it, but traveling with your little one can present some surprising benefits. Who doesn’t love a little flannel bundle. For example, if you’re on one of any Celebrity Cruises, you’ll probably find yourself surrounded by people who you could strike up a conversation with all because of that tiny tot. Embrace it and enjoy it.
Preparations for Travel
Making the right preparations well in advance of your trip can ease some of those potential tensions and situations that can create chaos on your trip. For instance, if you a traveling by air, make sure you check with your airline about its policies and procedures concerning babies. You want to make sure that your tot is as comfortable as possible—which will make your trip a success. You may even find that you can receive discounts on your flight when traveling with the baby. Other things you want to know about are diaper changing facilities, as well as any meals that you may need for your child.
Traveling by Car
If you are going to be making a road trip with your child, one of the essentials you’ll need is a comfortable car seat. Nothing can make a baby (or parents) more cranky than an uncomfortable seat. Make sure it is secured properly and allows some freedom of movement. Also, make sure your child is out of direct sunlight during your drive. Perhaps give him or her a bonnet or hat to shield him from the sun. Apply sunscreen if needed.
Bring The Essentials
You definitely want to make sure that you pack all of the necessary items for your travels. This goes past the usual diaper bag or tote that carries those day-to-day items. Make sure you includes such items as:
- A first aid kit – You never know if your little one will need a bandage for scrapes and scratches.
- Essential clothing—You never know when the weather might change, so be sure to pack for any weather.
- Food and snacks—Nothing is worse that a cranky baby who just needs a little snack. Pack water, juice and other tasty treats that can keep your baby satisfied.
- Entertainment—Provide age-appropriate games and other entertainment to keep your little one amused during the journey.
Make It a Home Away From Home
If your child has many familiar objects around him, it will make him less stressed and traveling will be much easier. Bring along his blanket, favorite stuffed toys and maybe a favorite outfit. He’ll feel at ease with the familiar items around him. See? Just a little planning and you and your family can soon be on your way to a fun and memorable trip.
