Indoor plumbing! Not sure when my parents put the toilet in but my sisters remember using the outhouse.

We have lived without running water and electricity, We were very young and very poor so it was all that we could afford. We burned coal to heat.

More than most these days, we appreciate what we now have.

I believe that the electricity is what I would miss the most.

Slowly and surely wins the race.

I think there is a tie between my computer and the furnace. I remember all too well, having to cut wood, stack wood, carry wood into the house and get up when it was freezing cold to add another log into the stove. The outdoor biffy had a fur seat - but it was still a shock to sit upon, thank goodness for chamber pots! LOL

I am in agreement with the indoor plumbing.

I coule probably do without the car since I live in the city, but if is still hard to get around. It takes 2 hours to get to the hospital and then I have to walk about 8 blocks. From other directions the bus stops right in front of the ER (the entrance is on the back side of the hospital)

We lived off the grid for a few years in our cabin. We had an extra big generator, but when it broke down it was extra expensive and extra hard to find a knowledgeable repairman. Our backup was a smaller portable generator with less capacity.

Our fridge was a Winnibego that ran on bottled gas (it was a full sized camper model) as did our hot water heater and stove. We had a water pump, washer, dryer, microwave and lights etc all on the generator. Our heat was firewood. We had all the comforts we needed except the knowledge that each could break down and leave us wishing we weren't living off the grid. That didn't happen tho...

When we (spent our wad) and got electricity we sighed with relief...it solved all the problems we had and (mostly) anticipated.

PS. We had a outdoor satellite for emergency biffy, and still have it in use for our second toilet (or men's use) when we have visitors. :)

I know I'm not normal and have lived without a lot of things, but the only modern convince I can think of I don't want to do without is indoor plumbing. Electric would be a close second.

What one modern convenience (either appliance or technological advancement) would you definitely prefer not to have to live without?
