I would also like to add someone that knows all about animals. Someone that can breed them along with caring for them.
It would be a very good idea to have a few goats, cow(s), horse/mule, chickens/rooster, etc.

I'm all for starting now, I think I have a birth defect, I can't figure out what other women see in shoe shopping. I am so ready to get away from "civilization". If trampling each other to death over a sale at a store, is civilized I want out!
As far as being a leader goes, I guess it would depend on where my level of experience fell compared to every one else.

OP: I'd prefer no community. But, eventually I'd end up having to take the family to some form of society. I'd actually rather be a personal leader (which I am anyway), and live on the outskirts or within convenient access of a community with medical and necessities available (kinda like I do today anyway)

In Sit-X, those rednecks you look down your nose at would have a far more realistic chance of survival than a person who
A. Clearly belittles people of the land
and B. seems to have their entire life revolve around electronics and modern conveniences.
Sorry, but I'll take a few good ol boys who can help me run the still without burning us all up, plant the crops intuitively, and field dress a deer without having to lookup the process on Youtube first (not to mention then look up "How to get vomit out of a sweater in the wilds" which I'm guessing would be the end result of you actually having to butcher your dinner while it's still warm and on the hoof.)
Of course, I'm a damn proud redneck...

being stuck in georgia, im surrounded by rednecks.. sigh..
but my community would be built around a large gamer base, people that are total gamers, computer geeks with ion charged pc's, even mac users would be welcome. We would hack all broadband connections to 1 trillion bits per second, and shunt it thru a wifi system powerfull enough to give the whole community wireless internet and cable. everyone you see would be carrying a notebook and an iphone, and a startrek online and world of warcraft account would be mandatory.
wow... sounds like heaven...

Just for a lighter thread, I often think about this.
If you are the type that in a shtf global situation, and you would rather rebuild in a community then alone, who would you like in your community?
A doctor? Engineer? hunter?
I think I would like to have a doctor or nurse,carpenter, maybe a musician for entertainment. Hey,even in a post modern world you need entertainment.
Who would you like on your surival island?
Also, would you be the type to be a leader? Or a follower? Second in command? No leader at all?
