About Jim and Joyce
Let me tell you something. I can write the socks off
telling people about survival and making it through hard times. But when it comes to writing
something personal about ourselves, it isn't easy. However, at the same time we understand you
want to know something about us. So here goes.
I am a Vetnam Era Veteran, an
Eagle Scout in the BSA, a former Air Traffic Controller, Sales Manager, Christian Minister and
Foreign Missionary. I currently work as a Published Author and
Joyce (my wife) and I are now
in what some call our senior years. We live outside Palmer, Alaska in the deep woods, on a
mountainside, in a beautiful log home. We love the incredible spicy, sweet air here, and enjoy the
wildlife that hangs out around our homestead (moose, bears, porcupines, wolves, robins, nuthatches,
chickadees, etc.) We are blessed to live in a wilderness paradise, where life is as it always has
been. I mean exactly that. Life here remains pristine (Click here to see some of our

it's downright scary. We enjoy our free time prospecting for placer gold, and metal detecting.
We are what the modern world calls Preppers, although we
have never thought of ourselves that way. We simply enjoy the old ways of doing things. We
enjoy salmon fishing, vegetable gardening, picking
berries in the wild, canning, and keeping chickens and such, to keep our larder
My interest in Making it
Through Hard Times comes
from years of study about money and the history of
the U.S. Dollar. I've watched the buying power of the dollar fall all my
life and can tell you this: The dollar cannot last as we know it. The sad part of this is the
Federal Reserve System is doing all it can to prop up the dollar, at our expense. The last thing
they want us to know is that the dollar is on its death bed. You be the judge. Here's a chart that
reveals the truth of it.
Look at that chart. The Dollar's value
as a form of money is close to zero compared to its value in 1913, the year the Federal
Reserve was created. Couple that with our country's national debt, and you have the makings
of a complete and udder economic collapse.
No one knows
when the dollar will collapse, only that the day is
near when the world banking system and governments will no longer accept it. That day will come
without warning. That means...How much your life is going to change depends entirely on
how well you are prepared BEFORE the collapse hits.
Our purpose is to educate
and warn as many people as will listen, to look truth in the eye and prepare for the
