    Nice thread, certainly makes you consider what is really important.
    In terms of my possessions the only things that I would really miss are 20 years of digital photos.

    Note to self - upload 20 years of digital photos onto Onedrive before my hdd's die....

    My car or my Robot, both would be very hard to replace.

    It's never ending. A constant chore to back up photos it feels. I signed up to Flickr for this but I'm still trying to upload a huge backlog of photos from years ago. Then you also have photos taken on your phone and backed up automatically to Google so things get so messy.

    I had to wait nearly 20 years after paying ex wives off before i could afford what is now my prize possession. A Michell Orb record deck with an SME V arm on it, always wanted one since i first heard one in the 1970's.
    I've had it over 20 years now and can't see myself ever parting with it.

    Drool-drool-drool-drool - I only ever managed a Logic DM 101 with a Linn Basik arm -all gone now and going deaf.
    Enjoy it as much as you can.

    OK, my most prized MATERIAL possession is the house I helped my Nan buy 30 odd years ago. Joint names on the mortgage and when she passed away I became the sole mortgage payer. 30 years later its all paid for & I modernised the interior last year. I'm currently renting it to a family & when they decide to end the tenancy I'll take early semi-retirement & move in. :p ;) :D

    My road bike, over the past ~32 months it has probably got me out of the four walls (albeit sometimes very relunctantly) outside of work more than anything else I've done in the past ~20 years. It's given me fitness levels I've not had since the 1990s and after living in Southampton since late 1992, I finally discovered just how close the South Downs hills are, getting up there regularly helps me massively with my mental health too in all that fresh air; nature; largely a complete lack of motor traffic etc.

    While I could replace the bike if anything happened to it, I doubt I'd be able to splash out on anything of a similar spec/weight anytime soon (which makes such a difference IMO in hilly undulating terrain), as we desparately try and get a housing deposit together and get out of renting before it's too late.
