100 Things to disappear first in an extended emergency situation.

I don't know if it's cause I'm pregnant or if I'm being inspired but I can't get survival out of my head!  I live in the middle of a wheatfield on 5.62 acres.  We have lived here for 2 years and have learned many, many things about country life, and ourselves.  The last couple of days I have been thinking of things that I need to learn and get to be able to survive out here if cut off from the rest of the world.  Then I got to thinking about what if the rest of the world was in crisis too?! What would I need to get a hold of before anything bad happened to be able to not only survive but for my family to thrive.
