Please post comments during the breaks so you can keep you’re attention on Tom while he’s speaking. Tech support questions are always welcome as long as you’ve actually read this entire email 🙂
Bear in mind there is a 1000 character limit per post.

Your user name in the chat room should follow this format: FirstnameLastname. For example, John Smith would be JohnSmith.  The chat room will be open by the time you get this email, please try it out – if you have any questions, let me know. If you don’t see the chatroom on the webpage, please review your internet security settings or update your current browser or try it in a different browser.  Chat names such as “guest” or “SpanishFlu” are mightily frowned upon in the chat room  – we strive to treat it as an actual class out in the Pines.  If you can’t figure out how to change your name, ask for help on the chat room and in the meantime sign your posts each time with your actual name.  Anonymous posts in the chat room are usually not printed out for Tom to read.

At this point in the email you will be tempted to stop reading… please don’t 🙂 The following info is important and may save you a lot of time and stress when the broadcast begins.

If there seems to be more than 20 seconds or so of time delay (video lag) between real time and what you see on the computer:  Click the middle of the video player once to stop it, then once more to restart.  This will clear any built-up video lag in your system. I do it every break.
I also regularly use the free version of CCleaner to clean up my systems here before the broadcasts.

To clear out temporary internet files or browser cache, follow the link for your browser:
FirefoxChromeInternet Explorer OperaSafari
We recommend the internet browser Firefox for viewing this event. You can download it here:
http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/
Safari and Chrome are also good. ( http://www.apple.com/safari/download/  or https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/
Opera may also work fine. http://www.opera.com/computer/windows
Internet Explorer is not recommended, though it works for some.
Also check your browser’s plug-ins for up-to-date status. If you’re not sure how, just google the name of your browser plus the words “plug-in update”.

Please ensure that you’re internet connection speed is at least 800 Kbps (or 0.8 Mbps); you can check this here:  http://www.speedtest.net/
This test will tell you if it’s at least possible for you to watch the live broadcast, but it does not unequivocally determine whether or not your internet connection can sustain a 800 Kbps download for long periods of time.
If you have a lot of dropouts or video freezes, you can try (in order) refreshing the webpage, re-booting your computer (turn off, turn on), re-booting your internet router, or go through the items mentioned previously.
If you’re having problems you can ask the chat room for help or email
support@trackeraudio.com

I also recommend highly that you use headphones or powered speakers to listen to the broadcast – many laptop built-in speakers aren’t powerful enough to clearly hear the audio.

The video recording of the live broadcast will be posted for on-demand viewing by the next day. You’ll get an emailed link to an unlisted YouTube video to watch the on-demand version; it’ll remain posted for at least 30 days after the last broadcast for this class unless Tom says otherwise.  We also send a transcript of the chat room and any pertinent pictures from each session along with the video links.

That’s all for now – see you soon.

An Apology

Hi Folks,

I’m so sorry about the mix up in the poem/quote I put up yesterday. I’m afraid that when we deleted the poem we also deleted my emergency online program announcement. Just in case you missed it, it will begin at 7:00 pm on Saturday, April 11th and run until I feel satisfied that I’ve covered all that I want to. Please invite your family and closest friends to view the program and as always with an emergency program it will be of not cost to you except for your time. Many prayers for all of you, In Medicine and Blessings, Tom

A Sincere apology

Hi Folks,

I’m so sorry for putting that poem up on my blog without checking first. Jerry had said that the poem was accredited to Kathleen O’Meara (1839-1888) but actually it belongs to Cathrine O’Meara. It was written in March of 2020. As an author I made a blunder because I assumed that being so old that there was no copyright. I was so moved by the poem that I rushed to put it up on my blog. I’m going to try and figure out how to remove it since I don’t have permission to use it. Thanks so much for your understanding. No matter written today or over 150 years ago it is still inspiring and brings hope. Blessings, Tom

Thank You!

I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who sent cards, wrote letters, emails and texts whishing the Tracker School a Happy 42 anniversary. Actually my first real class was back in 1962 when I was but 12 years old. That was when a very dear and close family friend and retired State Trooper, Uncle Joe, asked me to help him teach a small group of troopers to track lost people as well as fugitive recovery. As you will remember if you took the Standard Class Uncle Joe was the person who got me started tracking for law enforcement and forensic investigators. I subsequently met with those same troopers and many more over the next 5 years at least twice a year. For my first weekend teaching they gave me $5 which was a small fortune back then for a poor Piney kid. Through all of my years of teaching there is one thing that remains constant and that is Grandfather and his mastery of skills both physical and spiritual. None of what I teach is mine for it belongs to Grandfather and the great lineage of Elders.

As I look back over so many years that have gone buy I often think back to the early days when I first began to teach in 1962. Back then no one knew what a tracker was or what they did. And the only thing out there that resembled any form of survival was classes given to the military recruits and aviators. Wow have we come a long way from those early days. It is a bit ironic that during March of 1962 Grandfather took us to the Hill called Prophecy and told us of the four warnings of the oncoming collapse. From that day on I began to warn people of what was to unfold and once again we face another of Grandfather’s Prophecies coming true in the form of the latest pandemic with yet more to follow.

Thank you all and In Medicine, Tom

Wilderness Diseases

Hi Folks;

Wow!!! What a great class. The online class on pandemics and the corona virus surpassed my wildest expectations. The responses and questions we received from all of you showed a great deal of enthusiasm, caring and dedication. At once it has become one of my favorite classes but also a bit of a nightmare at times. The big stressor for me was trying to reach a broad spectrum of students from those who have taken scores of classes to those who have taken no Tracker Classes. I cant remember how many hours I poured over the class outline, adding, removing, and modifying till I felt I reached a point where I could reach everyone. My brother Jim was great at rounding out the class especially with his strong scientific background in infectious diseases. We prayed that this class would alleviate many of your fears and build a certain confidence that will see you through these troubled times and those yet to come.

That being said, Jim and I have been working on a book together called WILDERNESS DISEASES; the avoidance, prevention and the treatments available both from Nature and from modern science. In the book we will teach you how to avoid the many diseases that are so easy to infect the folks who are not aware of them. The book is still about 16 months away from being published so we thought, “why wait”! Subsequently Jim and I are in the process of developing a class that we will put online sometime in May. Given the way this past class on pandemics had gone I believe firmly that the Wilderness Diseases online will be even more of a success. We will keep you posted as to dates and times.

Blessings and In Medicine, Tom

Dr. James W. Brown

As many of you know I’m running a 3 day program on how to stay safe during the corona virus pandemic. I’ve held off doing this class for years as I waited for the moment to be right and the need great. I must admit I’m more nervous about this class than any other class I’ve taught in the past 41 plus years. It is not so much the information and skills that I will be teaching but more so the sheer volume of material I want to get across. Even though I began writing up this class nearly 30 years ago as we approached the situation we all now face I’ve had to add more and more to the outline. The problem is that in the final analysis I can’t really cut any of it out. Subsequently if you are enrolled in the class starting tonight at 5:00 pm. prepare for the class to run overtime. Even though the program will be available to you in a download after the program is finished I would suggest strongly that you have a notebook with you to highlight the most important areas and to record your questions which will be answered online.

With that being said I’m so pleased and thrilled to announce that my brother Jim will be with me during the Sunday program. Jim’s specialty is infectious diseases and he has traveled all over the world lecturing to various colleges, medical facilities and disease oriented institutions. He is also a retired member of the New Jersey board of health as well as a retired Dean at Ocean County College. He earned his masters and Phd at the Institute of Microbiology and Biochemistry and Rutgers Medical School. Most of his work has been cutting edge research, prevention and testing. Today he runs an award winning online class that is affiliated with several major universities. Jim is one of the most skilled and knowledgeable researchers I have ever met. He is not just my brother but also my best friend. During the latter part of the program he will be with me to answer your questions and give you sound advice.

Needless to say if I sound proud of my brother that is an understatement for the decade I was wandering he was working several jobs, teaching at the university and researching his thesis. He dedicated himself to something I could never do. Finally, and keep in mind that he was often the tag along with Grandfather Rick and Me but because of a bone degeneration in his ankle he couldn’t come to the camp on a consistent basis.

I’m so thrilled to have him as my guest for this online program on diseases and surviving pandemics. I know that he will help balance out the program in a very powerful way. The great thing about Jim is that he had the best of both worlds meaning a strong cutting edge science background and Grandfather. In dealing with the horrors we all face he will make a great balance in the program.
Blessings and In Medicine to all of you. Tom

The latest update from Phil to Tom

Tom,

Here is the latest. All states reported infections including Washington DC, West Virginia being the last state reporting its first infection on March 17, 2020. Over the course of the last week, the number of infected increased around 30% per day in the United States

142 countries in the world reported infections. Not all reporting services define countries in the same way, but this is the tally from the source I’ve been following.

The CDC estimated that between 2.4 million and 21 million people may need hospitalization in the United States1, which has a total of 925,000 beds, of which less than 10% are dedicated to critically ill2. The outbreak could last months, to a year. Estimates suggest that Covid-19 could infect between 160 and 214 million Americans.

If this rate of infection holds steady, basic math says that the number of infected people will double every three days, my input, and if it holds for a month, by April 14 close to 7 million people will have been infected within the United States. Realize this is based on an assumption that the numbers increase 30% a day. This rate may change. Also, this is purely exponential, and disease infections follow a logistics curve, which has an exponential stretch in the beginning, and have a shoulder and a tail. I will continue to monitor the reports and update estimates on a periodic basis.
