    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.
