I recently had the privilege of meeting the wonderful folks that own and operate Carolina Readiness Supply in beautiful Waynesville, North Carolina, and I was very impressed to say the least. I had stopped by to drop off some books (shipping is so impersonal) and was amazed by their outstanding pricing and selection on just about anything you could need to prepare for something as simple as a power outage, to a great societal collapse.
Even if you merely want to live the simple, natural life and aren’t into “prepping,” they have what you need including off-grid cooking supplies, food processing equipment, camping gear, knives, survival food storage, maps, a vast reference and fiction library, and much, much more! If you are able to swing by, I highly recommend it. If not, visit their online store at carolinareadiness.com.
