Assuming you had food, clothing, and shelter, where would you like to be marooned and why?
....on a woodsy windy hilltop with a view for miles, because you would have the deer, the squirrels, the rabbits, the song of birds changing with the seasons to keep you company, and a breeze would blow to cool your sweat and keep the mosquitoes at bay in the heavy shade of the trees.....something like that.
Well since I am living on an island, I'd rather preferred to be 'stranded' somewhere in the mountains surrounded by a deep lush forest. I can simply sit down and meditate on my marooned situation
A huge library like the New York Public Library or Library of Congress. I'd never run out of reading materials and no one would bother me while I was reading.
This time last year I had just got married and right at this point in time I was sitting on a boat in the Maldives, I was with my new wife and 2 people that I had just met that day (we are still close friends) and our honeymoon was just beginning.
I f I could be marooned anywhere in the world it would be the Maldives, to me it symbolises perfect beauty and is the home of one of the greatest moments in my life!
Who wouldn't want to be marooned in one the the greatest moments of their life?
Somewhere tropical with lots of green and the ocean nearby. I grew up at the beach, but left there in 79. Never go over missing it. The past few years have lived in extreme climates; Montana, North Dakota. I would love to feel the fun on my skin and hear the ocean and not FREEZE while doing it.
Hypothetically, I want to be marooned in the same place where the playboy yacht in this fantasy got marooned. Unfortunately, Hef didn't survive the crash. Thus, the responsibility to ensure everyone bunny's safety on what I now dub "babe island" will not be an easy task. However, I'm up for the challenge. The island will be like the island from the movie "The Beach". My new name will be Captain Yohimbe.
In a remote mountain valley. There is too much noise in the 'civilized' world.
James Hilton’s, "Shangri-La", of Lost Horizon fame might work.
Definitely the south pacific. And even though I do like a certain amount of solitude I wouldn't want to be alone, and I wouldn't want to be with anyone except the love of my life and my best friend which happen to be the same person, my wife. How about me and my wife marooned in a beach front Hawaiian hotel. That sounds good.
I would love to be marooned on a very isolated island off the carribean because I love the ocean and the sunny skies. I also love the idea of being so far away from civilization. I would also love to be in the company of my dear friend Wayne Brown....my husband? Not so much, he isn't a poet like Mr. Wayne LOL. Nice question, Cheers.
An island, with plenty of food, water, and shelter. It would be nice to get away from civilization and find myself, and do some soul searching. Being alone with yourself for weeks on end has to change who you are as a person, probably for the better.
sitting under a coconut tree in rarotonga with a great book in hand, why because thats where my dad is from and ive never been there
somewhere deep in the rocky mountains. preferably near a cave for exploration
I wouldn't care; just having the food, clothing, and shelter would be a step up
In cloud nine, although I don't have any idea where it is. LOL
In a female supermodel's bedroom. As to the why, I'll leave it to your imagination
At a Hawaiian island with a sh*tload of books. But with pets and a decent internet connection.
I would like to be marooned somewhere tropical with clear, sparkling waterfalls and no mosquitoes. And of course, there has to be good internet connection
In a hotel with room service, a pool and lots of drinks. Oh, and internet service wouldn't hurt, but without it, how about some interesting companions.
My spot would hafta be in the best little hole in the earth...Seadrift, Texas....YEAH BOY!!!
I would like to be marroned on an island. Sandy beach with lots of fruit trees near. The temperature would be great all year round. I do not like the cold, so everyday would seem like a vacation.
I pick the south of France. Great food, great weather, great wine.
I'll take Bernuda. Perfect climate, gentle folk, sophisticated society, lovely homes and a beautiful view in every direction!
If all the equipment as you specified already exists. I want to be in a museum that has a very complete collection. And supported the library with a complete literature. Because I am very pleased with the history and civilization of the past and ancient literature.
Monte Mouie. Beautiful tropical island in the French Polynesia. Currently up for sale and on the top of my wish list. Now if I could just figure out those winning lottery numbers.
As for the why...
Temperate climate, self sustaining, and away from all the trials and tribulations associated with politics and general stupidity. Plus as a bonus its only about 3-4 hours by boat from Bora Bora for a change of scenery.
a greek or a european island....the pacific is nice, but too exposed to hurricanes and all....
With the proper food clothing and supplies, if I was marooned but could choose where I was marooned, I'd have to say somewhere on the grounds of the Playboy mansion.
An Island in the South Pacific - so I could lay on the beach, snorkel in the ocean, and just have a restful time.
With Mary-Anne and Ginger. Also the Skipper and the Professor. But not that dastardly Thurston Howell III and his awful wife.
Marooned, okay WB I would be Marooned with food, clothing and shelter in your house in your master bedroom. Because I told you to get back to writing with your witty self and leave this Q & A stuff for people who have no talent.
And if you are saying to yourself " Like You Blake4d" - then I must admitt I was just thinking about that one myself....
Damn I am a talentless hack after all. But at least I am Marooned in your master bedroom. You got a wife or girlfriend? I can wait....
I would love to live on the Jurassic coast of Dorset in the UK. It's far too expensive for me to live there, but if I had food, clothing and shelter then I wouldn't need anything else. It's a beautiful coastline and is the inspiration behind the fictional area of Wessex in Thomas Hardy novels. As you walk along the windswept coastal paths you can almost see the characters from the book, its my most favourite part of Britain.
i would love to be marooned somewhere where the sunshines continuously and am surrounded by good friends ,wine and love ... mmmm bliss
Hawai. The beautiful beaches, swimming with the dolphins, a great hotel wit hroom service. I just want to be on a beach every day of my life!
The northern edge of Scotland, as long as i have my books.
An Island full of well shaped and affectionate nymphomaniac women. . . . .for obvious reasons. . . .
As long as I had my peace of mind and my family...I could be marooned anywere and I would be happy
Without a doubt! Costa Rica! Granted it is not an island paradise. It's Paradise neverthe less! Friendly people, colorful sights, interesting culture... I could go on, and in my hubs you'll find more about the wonderful place it is!
A forest in northwestern New Jersey! People think that the state is all parkway, turnpike, expressway, and pollution, but the forests around High Point, Netcong, or even the Blue Army Shrine would prove that it's beyond that!
I would say, possibly on the mountain directly overlooking Boulder, CO
One of the most amazing scenes I have ever laid eyes on
You can see so far, and pick out the distinct towns/cities as they are all unique in appearance. And of course, the mile high city is clearly visible, towering over the flat, incredible landscape.
On the LOST island. I think that the mystic quality of the island would be incredible. All the danger, romance, adventure, mystery, etc.....what more could you ask for?!

Will a bank give a 90 year old man a mortgage, assuming he would otherwise be eligible?No one seems to know the answer. I know the man would be a risk to the bank, but if he meets all the necessary income requirements, could they say no? Is that age discrimination?
