You wake up stranded alone on a beautiful island. What is the first thing you would do?
Look around for Gilligan, The Captain, Maryanne, Ginger & Thurstin & Lovely Howell III.
Take inventory of everything I have (clothing, tools, food, etc). That will form the basis of any short term (water, food, shelter) and long term (escape/rescue) planning.
As long as I am stranded with food, water and a ton of books I am stretching out on the beach working on my tan. Maybe would like my Bible and a couple of journals to write in.
Search the surrounding area, map out my location, and be absolutely sure there was no civilization before proceeding with a possible escape plan.
First give thanks that it is not a desert island. Then mourn the fact that I am away from friends and family. Then be grateful I am alive. Then cry about my desolation. Then take small exploratory outings ever expanding them. Then grieve the fact I am alone. Then get on with things and enjoy the beauty. Alone has it's advantages and I would aim to find them. Beauty has it's treasures and I would know them. Life could be worse than being in a place surrounded by beauty.
I would slowly build a huge boat. But very slowly and very large.
I have a wonderful family and great friends but have dreamed of being totally alone.
Look for water and coconuts/fruits. Weave a hammock, find two good trees to hang it from, then lay back and smile. (Yes, I know how to weave a hammock!)
Would you like to borrow one of my books? I have every genre
I have probably read thousands of books. I can remember most of them. No, i think I would just like to hammock, swim, and listen to the peace and quiet.
Me too. I myself am rereading the Dune series
I read the whole series years ago! Still like Isaac Asimov better. Asimov wrote hundreds of great stories!
All answers are great and so interesting. I am really enjoying reading each one. Thank you for participating
Find out where, I get the hook up for the Internet and TV.
