The "infrastructure" of modern life (advice needed from cruisers!)

We're about a year out from going long-term cruising. I read a statistic that modern American life today takes as much paperwork as running a small business did in the 60s, and I believe it. We're trying to get the nuts and bolts of our lives as ready to go as we believe the boat is. We've got our bills on autopilot as much as possible, set up on-line banking and a mail-forwrding service. What other kinds of things should we be thinking about? How do other cruisers with no fixed land address (other than the mail service) handle perscription meds, car insurance with no car, jury duty .... what else isn't even on my radar yet????
