Trapped on a deserted island, what would you bring?

You are stranded on a deserted, uninhabited island in the tropics for an undefined amount of time.

What six items would you bring and why?
What would you not live with?

You have a suitcase full of clothes so that is not going to be a problem and aunt flo doesn't visit you while you are on the island so women need not worry about that being one of your 6 items.

1. A gallon of water
2. A gallon of gasoline
3. You're girl
4. Condoms
5. A boat
Blank
Avatar_m_tn
1. A frozen butchered cow
2. A propane grill (see # 1)
3. Lots of propane (see # 2)
4. A lighter (to ignite # 2 when it's push button ignite fails, they always do)
5. A bucket (to collect water in to wash down # 1)
6. My Kindle and a ton of spare batteries

If # 6 counts as two items, I'll ditch # 4 and take my chances with the grills igniter while I learn to rub sticks together.

That's enough to keep me fat and happy for quite a while. By the time it's all exhausted I'll have either learned to live off the land, be rescued or die.

Fun question. Considering the name of this forum, I'm not going to say what I'd REALLY like to bring. So I'd settle for:

- a lighter
- another lighter
- a giant metal pot (think lobster-bake size)
- Tent
- protein powder
- swiss army knife

1. Ginger (obvious reason)
2. MaryAnn (obvious reason again)
3. Gilligan (someone to do the work)
4. The Skipper (need someone that can drive a boat)
5. The Professor (to build cool stuff out of bamboo)
6. Lovey Howell (in case I tire of 1 & 2, variety is the spice!)

There's no room left for Thurston Howell III and that's fine, he serves no useful purpose.

Why does it have to be a deserted one? I'm going to the Faroe Islands and I'm taking a loaded gun, and that's it. And a machete.
Stupid dolphin killers :(
