I'd have to say electricity, indoor plumbing, toothpaste and easy access to soap. I'm not going to miss most of the technology anyways since most things these days are crap.

Not a damn thing....
Live by a creek, primitive hunting, agriculture, shelter... sounds like paradise.

If that doesn't work out, at least I die a free man.

Probably just the hot water and shower / bath. Oh and the internet.

I will probably miss an ice cold beer after a hard days work the most.

I'd miss my meds that keeps me alive. After looting pharmacies, homes and hospitals, trading what i have for what meds i need from middlemen, the supplies would diminish until only the new elite's would horde what's left. I guess i would live a year after the SHTF.

Pretty #ty conclusion for people suffering from chronic health problems.

that is sad, never crossed my mind.
most pharmas have a relatively short shelf life so stocking up isn't really an option.

I would miss the peace and ease that all those things give us. The safety, cleanliness and connection to loved one being at the top, but when it gets bad enough I'm going straight to the source of this evil with gun and sword in hand and no care of losing my life because eventually it might not be worth living anymore.

I get annoyed when I can't get internet access even in these carefree times. If (god forbid) it all goes to hell then I'll be screwed. No more free music (legal free music), no more internet forums, no more porn, It'll be hell.

I don't want this bliss to end!!!!!

Maybe after you get away from boxed foods, fast foods, and gmo foods you just might find that the body could normalize if it didn't have to fight a myriad of chemicals and preservatives.
Who knows what the future holds, or the past held but was suppressed by Bigpharma??

I would miss not knowing what's happening in the rest of the world as I have loved ones all over the world.
O that would be so terrible, not knowing if they are still here or not, if they are hungry or not...brrr

Now, what will i miss?
Laziness, yes laziness!
I do alot of my own things and i have many skill sets and the tools to do said jobs, whether it be food tools or building tools.
Now every once in awhile (and I admit with all the kids gone and age approaching quicker) I get the itch to loaf.
Whether it be go to Burger King for 4ozs. of burned death on a chemically enhanced bun, flavored with oil and fat based condiments and veggies that should have died months ago but have not!
Or just renting a movie online.
Without all of these modern conveniences i will loose some of my lazy time.
Ever wake up and not get out of bed or head straight to your chair or couch?
Never got out of your sweats or PJ's?
TRY IT!! Live like Paris Hilton for a day.

I will miss my laziness.
But who knows, down the road I may be able to trade my productivity for someone elses products or services, that may buy me some lazy in the future.

Skills and tools folks get em and use em.

Both are states of mind, safety and security.
Neither are guaranteed either.
You would feel the same after a normalization in societies and communities.
You are posting on this website though, maybe your'e not safe or secure now?

No Sir/ma'am you fully misunderstand me.
I have read before but find it too close to work when I want to be lazy.
I'm talking the full on Paris Hilton, blue pill, Jerry Springer lazy day.

No work allowed at all, even the eyes and brain get time off.

Washing my hair every day. There you have it, the vanity of me.

I think I would miss the net and all its entertainments the best...

I think of "Reign of Fire' and their reimagining of Star Wars, and cringe at how some of our tales will be retold later on.

that, and soap that doesn't eat my skin (AKA lye soap)

Fresh water, unless I have a clean well access, tastes and over all feels better(bathing, brushing teeth) than old stored water.. Of course, the net!
