Preppers Happy New Year's Eve Party!

Hey everyone - there's a Preppers New Year's Eve Party happening in the chatroom this evening at the newly launched APN Forum!!! And all Canadians are welcome!

We are planning to start the party at 7:00pm EST!

It's sure to be a great time - try to stop in even for just a second!

Let's ring in 2010 in proper Prepper style!

Here is a link to the Forum:

(The chat icon is located at the top right-hand side of the to the Arcade Icon and the Calendar icon)

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Happy New Year to all!

The APN has a great new look!

The American Preppers Network has a great new look! The APN has a new masthead and logo as do all of the state preppers networks! Check them out here.

In addition to the great new look, they have just launched a Brand New Forum at . (Be amongst the first to join! Get in now and at the end of January we will be drawing one lucky winner for survival seeds from Hometown Seeds.) The new forum has really taken off in only a day - all of our favourite friends from the APN have already checked in and a bunch of new people have found their way there through this Newsweek article. There is lots of discussion taking place on a variety of prepping topics and all Canadians are welcome - make sure to stop in and say Hi!

And lastly, Check out a social networking site for preppers all around the world. You will find links there as well as on all sites to the Chat portal which will give you access to all the prepper chatrooms. Two of the most popular at this time are Felinaes Lounge , a place specifically created for female preppers, and Wolfe's Den, the original APN chatroom. Make sure to check both chatrooms out as Canadians are very welcome there too!

And keep your eyes open over the next few days - the CPN's getting ready to launch a brand new look too!

Preppers Story in Newsweek

"Survivalism Lite. They call themselves 'preppers.' They are regular people with homes and families. But like the survivalists that came before them, they're preparing for the worst."

The CPN West - -> East Travel Bug enroute to Alberta!

As previously noted in this post, the Canadian Preppers Network had acquired two Travel Bugs in hopes of raising awareness of the CPN and because we thought it would be a fun thing to do. One Travel Bug (TB) will start on the west coast and one will start on the east coast.

The west --> east TB (TB342JN) has already been spotted and moved from several caches in the province of BC. The last we heard - it is now on its way to Alberta!!! Be sure to check the Alberta Preppers Network often for updates

You can view more info on the west --> east TB here:

Stay tuned for more updates on the west --> east TB!!!

(Make sure to click the pic below to see the cool TB!)

(Note: as of this post, the east --> west TB is in the mail, enroute to Bishop's Falls, Nfld. Stay tuned for more info on when it comes into play!)

Calling all Geocachers

The Canadian Preppers Network has acquired two Travel Bugs in hopes of raising awareness of the Network and because we thought it would be a fun thing to do. One Travel Bug (TB) will start on the west coast and one will start on the east coast.

The west coast bug (TB342JN) has already been spotted in Victoria BC. It will soon be moving onto another cache in the Victoria area starting its journey from the west coast to the east coast.

You can view more info on the west --> east TB here:

As of this posting it is currently located here (GC1M1DG) but it wont be for long :-)

Please join us as we watch the progress of this first TB eastward. If it gets close to you, head on out, grab it, and do your part in moving it from cache to cache.

(Make sure to click the pic below to see the cool TB!)

Stay tuned for regular updates on the west --> east TB and the east --> west TB!!!
