Unemployment numbers have reached 10.2%.

One in ten Americans that can work are not able to find work.

Welcome to the prepper movement.

We are here to help folks learn new skills and ways to survive crises of any kind. Losing a job is a crisis of the first kind.

We share tips on food preservation, animal care, and even ways to adapt to getting off the grid or foraging. One will learn how to stretch foods, grow foods, and even connect with preppers who are living in an understanding that we are not on a solid foundation as Americans. We live knowing that our government cannot sustain the spending that is ongoing.

Do not believe that you will be exempt from some sort of crisis in your life. Whether you live in areas that have tornadoes or hurricanes, or some other thing, preparing for a worst case scenario can and most likely will get you through a situation that causes others to panic.

Please feel free to visit the various states and even the Canadian prepper circuit, as we are all volunteering our tips and skills to help others. If you are so inclined we all would love to have others from our state to share tips and write with the network.

10.2%- it is likely that you know someone who is unemployed or are unemployed. I am so sorry that times are the way they are. Prep on because I am even more sad that I believe we are at the beginning of the downward spiral.

Pray friends if you are a praying person as times and folks all around can sure use our prayers.

Don't be too sad, Jen. There is still a lot in life to smile and be glad for.

Ditto what 'Furt said, Jen, don't be sad. The downward spiral forces us back to the very basics of life ...food and family. It may be a hard pill to swallow at times, but maybe it is a long overdue cleansing. I marvel at the stories you post of time spent with your kids working in the fruit packing plant. I know it's hard work but what a treasure those memories will be to all of you as time passes. God bless you and yours!
