if you were taken to a desert island in the middle of nowhere with a tropical climate and you had to choose only one item/object/thing to carry with you, what would be it?

I would have to choose a fishing rod. Besides catching food to survive, it's my favourite passtime anyway, so I would enjoy the peace and quiet!

If i were to be taken to a desert island, i would prefer to take my pillow with me, so that i can have a nap 24/7. In the middle of a desert you cant expect some entertainment to turn up, so sleep would be the best possible option available. Likewise taking some crates of cold drinks would not be a bad option.

In this situation I'd take a box of matches with me so that I can make fire and cook to feed myself.

lol, this is one of the questions asked one of Miss World Contestants, The edition won by Miss Nigeria 'Agbani Derego' and her answer she said; 1. water, with water she will survive even without food. 2. blanket, to keep herself from cold, insects etc 3.Bible, shes a Christian, to have a continual communication and relationship with her God. This her answer got an international acceptance, l think lf l find myself in such situtation which l dont pray though, l will do as she said. cheers

If I had to only choose one thing to bring with me to a desert island it would definantly be a lighter, because I know nothing about starting a fire without one...lol....So then if I had a lighter I could search for food and have the means to prepare it.

A lighter could be useful, but sooner or later it'd run out of gas. I'd rather think of something that i can use in the long run.

how about a survival manual? basic tips to survival. That would include methods of making fire without needing a lighter ;)

A bible might be the one I'll chose. Reading it can help me relax in the middle of nowhere. It can help me in my faith that the next day, I can still enjoy life.
