You are stranded on a tropical island. What 3 items would you want to survive? No answers like - a boat, cell phone, etc.

I'll take just one item, a "How to Survive on a Tropical Island" book..:)

PS- Tom Hanks did alright in 'Castaway' when he was washed up on the beach with absolutely nothing, so so I suppose if there's enough water and food we'd be able to do the same by learning on the job.

Go Tom!

popular floatation device known as Pamela Anderson.
Damn man! You might not make it. I hear they have strains of Syphilis now that are immune to everything (even Pamela Anderson).

I guess we're not supposed to add people to our list, but if I could, my wife would be first. Not sure I'd like to survive without her alongside! After that, knife and ferro rod, and if I get a third item, a cooking pot.

I surely wouldn't bring my wife. Ex-wife anyways. Talk about the perfect way to ruin an otherwise good time. :mrgreen:

Excluding people though, and looking at it in a practical way the best things to bring would be the longest lasting, most important tools for shelter, water, food and fire. You can make shelter and gain food with a good knife and it's the one thing I'd take if I could only have one thing. If the island has a good source of fresh, safe, drinking water than you could probably live without the destiller, but otherwise you need water before anything else. Than you need food. A fishing rod would be nice, but the line won't last forever and does that include the hooks, weights and lures needed to make fishing with it a real go? I think I'd prefer a good stainless steel 3 pronged spear head instead and with my knife could easily make spear after spear with that I could get lots of fish, crabs and stingrays with to feed me much longer. If there's the fresh, safe water source than I'd take as long lasting a firesteel as I could get. I can make fire without it. It's just a lot easier with it.

A really good knife, a really good firearm, and a really good fire-starter.

Knife for obvious uses and making fishing spears, firearm for hunting game, and fire starter for warmth, cooking, and a signal fire.

Then when I get rescued, I would write a book, sell the movie rights, go out the speaking circuit, get rich, retire, and live happily ever after, with my wife, which is why I did not list any women as necessities...!

i would and a shovle and my G.O.D. bag lol might as well take care of some of lifes bs while im there lol ... that looks like as good a spot as any lol
If you were on a deserted island, you wouldn't need to worry about her anymore. You'd never see her again most likely and be better forgetting her forever, washing away your miserable memories of her in the sand and surf and arms of someone like this who you could hypothetically bring with you instead in this thread.

water filter
biovac
netting

of course I woud probably change up the biovac for a lifetime supply of food.

or perhaps instead of netting a trident, or spear gun. netting has multiple uses though camo, bug protection and fishing, holding stuff, hammock.
