How would you get home?
Would you get home, or just live there now?
Would your plan of returning become a long term, 5-10 year affair?
What would life be like if/when you return?
Comms are down. How would your family know your status?

If anything else, this scenario stresses the importance of a Faraday protected HAM radio plan. It would be one of your only bets for getting a message back home (chain relay across the expanse).
Until Kevin Costner promises to deliver your letters, of course.
There will obviously be cases of people who just will not make it 'home'. And you might just have to accept the reality of you being one of them.
