1) Sun protection cream (lots of it) 2) My mobile phone -I like to keep in touch. 3) Insect repelent 4) A manicure set 5) Are the other 19 people male or female (should I take my rabbit or just a ton box of preservatives?)
1. A ladder for climbing coconut trees essential for survival 2. Makeup so I can put on my face everyday 3. A man....(well Eve was never alone) 4. Goggles so I can see underwater and catch a good supply of prawns 5. Cindy cos she has heaps of knowledge on everything
BP, you're obviously planning to be busier than I plan to be. I'm just planning to wait out the time until the rescue plane comes. (I wasn't thinking it's a dangerous island and I'd have to worry about survival. I guess I thought it was a "nice" island. )

I'd still like to know if it's a nice island or a dangerous island, and if it has one of those secret doors that the Lost island had, and whether or not "uninhabited" just means "no other people" or "no other people or animals". Also, how are we getting there? Boat or plane? And who's going? Do the tv camera-people count in the 19? Also, if I bring tea bags, will they count as 50 individual items or will the box count as 1? Also, can I select my own 19 people? Oh - and is there a way I can arrange to have someone feed my cat while I'm gone?
Good topic. So much depends on who the 19 other people are and if the intent is to cooperate or vote each other off the island? If the former, I would coordinate with the 19 other people so that we are not all bringing the same things and we can share. For example, if Princessa's bringing sunscreen and LisaHW's bringing toothpaste -- I could skip those items in favor of things that I can share with others.
For sure tho: 1. Laptop -- No question this situation will be ripe for a variety of hub topics! 2. Disposable razors -- no reason to go native re: pits and legs 3. A solar shower -- if necessary I can charge people to use it 4. Chocolate -- I'll be the most popular girl on the island! 5. Ibuprofen -- all-purpose pain reliever
I, personally, think the hygiene kit with the toothbrush, toothpaste, etc. in it is cheating. That's several objects packaged in a case and deceptively packaged as one object. If I'd know we could do that I would have said:
A suitcase with everything I need as far as clothes, toiletries, and other personal items go. A grocery bag full of food, beverages, and disposable dishes/cups. A suitcase with a towel, bedding, Mp3 player, mini-notebook, and portable tv. A suitcase full of books My handbag, full of all the stuff it already has in it (flashlight, radio, cell phones, etc. etc.)
So, Game-Show Judges, can the hygiene kit stay; and if it can, then I'm switching my list (and changing my mind about the helicopter thing). (but only if I can bring my "5 items" in the helicopter)
A Multi-tool A Magnifying Glass A Large Metal Pot A Clear Tarp An Axe
The Multi-tool for the knife, pliars, mini saw, etc the magnifying glass to start fires The Metal pot to cook food and as a rain catch A clear tarp to use as a solar still, to rainproof a shelter, additional rain catch, etc. Axe for chopping trees, hammering and opening coconuts.
How long are we gone for again? I would take debris (and he would take his 5 items) first aid kit if allowed (complete with pain pills) blanket cause I gets cold ...and I don't like cold.... k rations (again if allowed) if not, then a mega can of hot chocolate and knife
