Your Blog/Website/Forum on the CPN

Do you have a survival/preparedness blog, website or forum that you would like to see permanently linked to the CPN (see "Preppers Forums and Sites of Interest" and "Prepper/Survival Blogs" on the left-hand side of the page)? The CPN is always proud to link to sites that have a common goal of sharing information and helping people to become more self-sufficient and better prepared!

If so, leave a comment here with a link to your site, or contact Kymber here.

If your site is accepted, the CPN will host a permanent link to your site with the expectation that you will host a permanent link to the CPN on your site - it's a great way to make sure that the preparedness message reaches as many as possible!

A Brand New Look for a brand new year!

The CPN is proud to announce that all of the province blogs have brand new mastheads!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank American Prepper - firstly, for his having the foresight and vision to create the CPN when he created the APN; secondly, for his incredible friendship and support over the past year; and, thirdly, for taking such care in creating these gorgeous province mastheads - he spent hours pouring over pictures trying to find the "exact" right one for each province!

Have a peak at each one and let us know what you think! And make sure to take the time to thank our friend, American Prepper, for the great work that he has done!

Update on the CPN's Geocaching Travel Bugs

For those that aren't yet aware, the CPN let loose two geocaching bugs with the mission of crisscrossing the country spreading the word about the Network. The first TB was released in Victoria BC in early December 2009. This is affectionately called the West to East TB.

The progress and present where abouts of the W --> E TB can be monitored here.

The East to West TB is currently in the hands of a geocacher in Bishop's Falls Nfld. We are currently awaiting for it to be placed in a local cache to begin its cross-country journey.

You can monitor the E --> W TB location and progress here.

We'll keep you updated when the bugs move to new destinations.

A big shout-out to Scarecrow for coming up with idea, getting all the stuff required to do this and sending those bugs on their merry ways! The CPN is very excited by this great adventure!

And to all geocachers out there participating in this great adventure - thanks so much for your participation - we really appreciate it!!!
