Just wanted folks to know that there is a FACEBOOK page for American Preppers Network. If you want, you can access it here: https://www.facebook.com/AmericanPreppersNetwork/ . It may be an option for anyone who wants to stay connected, if the APN forum goes down for any length of time.

I actually have a facebook page under my 'ReadyMom' name that I set up within my personal facebook page. This way, I can post under that on-line screen name and still keep my personal life separate. If you want, you can do the same thing. Keep in mind, you'd have to manage TWO facebook pages, but if the one is just prepping-related, it's not too bad and keeps all your prepping in one place and out of the prying eyes of family & others you don't want to know what you're up to 8) ... ;) -k

Ok, let's all get our big girl panties on for the rough road up ahead. Thank you for the heads up, NIP, and thank you for this site.


It was brutal last night at work, no APN, then I get home at 0200 with clear skies and forty degrees! Thank God for climate controlled garages and automatic doors! Living on the edge by daa Swamp

The downtime yesterday had nothing to do with the upgrade. Hostgator had an entire data center go down. There shouldn't be any downtime during the upgrade, just some hiccups with error codes and such.

My apologies, I wasn't expecting any downtime, but in order to avoid losing posts during the transfer process we took the forum offline (supposed to be very temporarily) while we transferred the database over. It ended up taking a lot longer than we thought. Over 5 million lines in the database. You guys talk a lot! Anyway, that took a long time and then there were some error issues. But everything should be fixed now. Soon, the domain name will be working instead of having to link over here.

In a few days we'll do the forum update, and that will have some more issues to deal with
