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?

I am gonna say that I would bring Nurse. Because, you know, in case I get injured or something.

I just wanted to let you know that I love you even though you aren't naked right now. Heart

Fixed

I doubt that....but just in case...I forgive that island in advance for killing me.

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 ).

It's a tough call alright, but as my luxury item is a case of Redbreast 12 year old Irish Whiskey, the person I'd choose would have be a non-drinker. Tongue

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.

I agree Big Grin We could do yoga and dance all day and have Rocket and Yak take their shirts off and serve us tropical drinks Thumbsup

RE: You are trapped on a desert island...
Luxury item: a complete bedroom set, including my bedside table and all its contents. Big Grin

Survival item: flint (because there's a knife in my bedside table -- don't ask)

Food item: water

TTA person....I've given this a lot of thought...I'll go with Stark.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
