What 3 objects would you bring with you to a deserted island?
If I were deserted on a desert island I would want 1) Bleach 2) A lighter 3) First aid kit. These would be my choices. Bleach for clean drinking water. a lighter for fire, first aid kit, self explanatory.
For survival - a sun-powered water distiller, a survival multitool with saw, knife, and permanent match, and a tent with built-in mosquito netting.
For enjoyment (if this deserted island is already well-stocked for food, shelter, and water, but communication with the outside world is not allowed. A solar power unit for recharging a computer stocked with tens of thousands of Kindle books and a backup drive for my writing, and a meditation cushion. (I'd spend my time enjoying nature, exercising, meditating, reading, and writing.)
For escape, a satellite telephone, a GPS, and a box of strike-anywhere emergency flares.
What you want to have depends on what you have to do! Thanks for the fun!
If I am being light hearted I would say my iPad and the portable solar panel we have for charging the battery and flint to start a fire.
But if I am being sensible I think JT's answer is right on.
A tent with appropriate netting, desalination/boiling equipment, Multi tool
This may or may not be a controversial answer; however, if I could, I would bring The Father, Son and Holy Spirit (then I would argue philosophically that all though this seems like 3 in actuality it is one entity projected in three) and then I could "play" follow the leader to ensure my survival.
Now if I could not convince the Father, Son and Holy Spirit to be with me; then indeed I would want a poncho (protection from the elements and to catch rain; in case it is a dry island), lighter, and my throwing hatchet (to allow me to hunt and cut wood for shelter, cooking fuel and warmth).
However, if I could indeed include a 40-50 foot yacht as one of the 3 items, then I would not worry so much about the the need for shelter and would simply have a poncho and throwing hatchet to accompany the yacht...
A first aid kit, my ipod & a solar powered RV. I would rather sleep in an RV then a tent! lol If I have a solar powered RV I will be able to sleep in there, store food and cook food in there, charge my ipod and have shelter from the sun, animals and insects. I would imagine there would be no internet single so my ipod would keep me company with music and scripture I have on it.
I would like to bring
1. Food Stuff
2. Quran Majeed (The Book of Islam)
Paper and pen and lots of suntan lotion. I suppose I could find some charcoal to write with and some kind of wood or stone to write on. And the suntan lotion would have to have bug spray in it. Water, food, shelter, well, hum, what would I trade for something to light the fire? Ok, I give up the pen and paper, because I could always write messages in the sand. A backpack then, to take all the treasures I found back home with me. So, a backpack, lotion and a flint to start a fire.
If I stayed there for too I'd have to find somebody to communicate with, then it wouldn't be deserted anymore. So, I would only go, if I got to leave.
A Good machete , Most important tool you will need. building shelter, hunting, cleaning game.
Fishing net. Catch fish, birds, bats. use some of the nets string to make snares and traps
First aid kit, i would need to stock the first aid kit myself.
As for making fire there are a lot of ways, bow drill method. or if in a dire emergency striking your machetes hilt against certain types of rocks.
Water is not a problem if you are on an island, just distill it yourself. Either from seawater or river water.
I am of course assuming three things.
1. The island is of a temperate climate.
2. It has wildlife and foliage
3. you are stranded for more then a week.
A pockets knife so I could cut small branches and start a fire with
It would also serve as a way to protect myself.
A flash light.
And one good book.
A good fixed blade knife, A piston style fire starter, 100 feet of 550 cord. A knife is a must in any real survivable situation, Piston fire starter because you will run out of butane in a lighter, and there are a thousand uses for 550 cord.
Well, I wasn't thinking about a practical response. I was thinking about a bulk supply from Cosco's -- corn chips, toilet paper (do not prescribe to jungle natural supplies, thank you), and bottled water.
If we're going to be realistic here, I would imagine that I can only bring something I can carry with or on me. If that's the case, I would bring a folding tent, a knife, and a fishing rod. The tent would obviously provide shelter (better than nothing), the knife would allow me to hunt and skin potential meals, and the fishing rod obviously for fishing. I believe these three items would give me the best shot at a bad situation.
If we can bring anything we want, I would bring a banana, and a monkey. I would give the banana to my new monkey friend and watch him eat it as I fly away home with my jetpack.
Satellite phone for rescue, a fully stocked hotel with staff for creature comforts and the fastest internet connection in the world.

Where will I go when I die? After living my entire life on a deserted island...You lived your life in solitude. You were kind to Mother Earth and grateful for all she gave you. You created your own answers to the questions "where did I come from?" "What is my purpose in life?"...

If you were stranded on a deserted island what 10 items would you want to have with you?Think in terms of realistic things that you could have brought with you if possible but anything that would make being stranded bearable to you personally.
