RE: You are trapped on a desert island...
Luxury item: The Collected Works of William Shakespeare.

I honestly never get bored of reading his stuff. Hamlet, Macbeth, The Tempest... For brief periods of time why....I wouldn't be trapped on that island at all.

Survival item: An operational M14 rifle and all the various ammunition and maintenance equipment to keep it running for a reasonable time.
As mentioned before I had a rather ....strange education as a child, so I can make a perfectly serviceable knife with two flat rocks. What I don't know is what's the local wildlife like? Do I have to deal with tigers or bears or beartigers or what not? Is their a aggressive indigenous population I might have to deal with? Am I gonna have the strength to hunt down a beartiger or a boar with a knife or spear if I haven't eaten in 12 days? How keen am I on hunting a beartiger with a knife at all?
I'd rather have the M14.

Food item: While this may be skirting the line a tad on "food item" I'd take a water purifier.
All the gear, all the food, all the tools, and all the training are worthless if you get sick from the water and shit yourself to death.Shocking


Lets evolve this a though: You can bring one person with you from TTA to the island. Who do you pick?

So you're dead in the first hour.

RE: You are trapped on a desert island...
Who would I choose to be trapped with from TTA? That's a tough one because there are so many talented, intelligent, totally awesome people here Heart

But since it is about survival, I would go with yakherder because he has a ton of survivalist training and he's kinda nuts about it--but in a good way Big Grin (he's also my go-to outdoor advice pm person Thumbsup ).

Pfffft. Heywood Jahblome....."You're forgiven for fixing me"

I'd pick goodwithoutgod because he's in the navy and could probably hook us up with a ride off the island.

Jennybee, I think you and I would get along very well together. RocketSurgeon and Yakherder are so damned cute though. But in the end I'd go with Chas. He's calm and collected, unfazed by upheaval.

One thing that might be necessary for my survival (besides chocolate) is sunscreen. My pale Oregon skin can't take the sun. I'd burn like bacon on a grill, go into shock and die.
