I am not talking about the obvious here....family, friends, money, food, water, etc.... that stuff is obvious. For me, it is my BlackBerry....I am looking at it every 2 minutes. So what can't you live without?

Hope,faith,health,ambition,honesty,integrity,an open mind, love, truth.

I could loose my yearly lottery check and all the toys that go with it and I could give a crap as long as I still have the above.

As much as I hate my blackberry because it is a pain in the a** and is always messing up, I would have to agree and say my blackberry also. If I ever leave it at home, I freak out and go back for it. No calls, emails, texts, or checking lawnsite from time to time. I couldn't handle it.

Cell phone. How we ever managed without them....I've mentally blocked out those memories. Mobilizing changed everything. Being able to sell to new customers, while servicing a current customer, managing the troops from afar....and being reminded to bring home a loaf of bread, nice.

I really don't know.

I've had the same cell phone for the past three years, and my wife gets on my butt for not answering it when I'm working. If people really need to get a hold of me, they can leave a message. Not too many people have my cell number either, I always give out my office number, they can call that, get in line, and I'll call them back when need be.

I guess I would have to say my truck. If I couldn't haul around my stuff. personal or business, then I'd be at a loss.

My computer. The ability to gather information so easily. I can't imagine not having that available.

I have to agree with scott on this one. My cell phone. A few weeks back, we were hit hard here in KY with a huge ice storm. Most landlines were dead, and cell service was out for a few days. Truly an odd feeling, not having contact with anyone other than the ones you were there with.

Well since you took away family, friends, money, food, water, I'd say NOTHING. Sometimes I'd be happy with only the money, food, and water part. Seems the older I get the more I'm learning to hate people. As for cell phones and any other mobile device, I'd me more than happy to just leave them at home.

My washing machine.

For a while we did without and hauled our things to the mat. But then it was only two of us and then one baby. As soon as we could we got a washer and I hung stuff to dry or hauled the wet to the mat.

But now with six of us and David coming home all grimy and covered in whatever he mucks around in all day...eeww. No way would I ever want to go back to my Great-grandmother's day and wringer-wash the clothes.

Ok, you did say the obvious aside.

But if I have to pick one thing, Broadband Web.
The air compressor would be next, but broadband takes first by a long shot and has done that for many years LOL

I couldn't live without going to Church on Sunday just to say Thanks for all this stuff I "think" I can't live without. Truthfully it isn't the "stuff" I am thnakful for.

Church is like the reset button for me and it is truly the one time where I relax and do not have to deal with any distractions and just be thankful.

I am not by any means a bible thumper and I have many faults but that hour recharges the battery.

You should be carrying that message daily, you are the Church:) Faith requires no building to believe:) You shall be judged for your actions, not the one hour each sunday you accumulate:waving:

this question takes alot of thinking. you said money wasn't included, so neither would all the things that help me attain it. My equipment and truck would have been a big one. Same with my wife.

So I guess we are narrowing it down to our more material objects, hobbies, and entertainment.

In this order: motorcycles, beer :drinkup: , pool table, sleep, xbox 360, computer, and copenhagen.

My firearms...my computer is a big one but I could certainly live without it. Matter of fact if I get my way I will be alone (except maybe for a good dog) in the middle of my "acreage" with no one to bother me for my golden years...a hermit, away from what this ugly world is becoming...oh yeah...no trespassing!:usflag:

An ice cold beer or Bartels & James on a hot weekend with plenty of charcoal for the grill. Friends, burgers, etc too. Make sure the pool is at the right temperature, then some rock 'n roll music, frisbees, a football, etc -- maybe some bottle rockets for when the sun goes down.

The above are ideas gathered from my guys. I agree.

My belt and shoelaces;if you ever had them taken away from you for several days, you really come to appreciate them;don't ask how I know, lol;also warm water for showers on cold days. And my thumbs;after surgery on the basil joint my right thumb was immobilized for several weeks;try buttoning your shirt or tying shoe laces with one hand and you'll understand how helpless you are without thumbs.
