What would you take on a journey back in time?

[b]If you HAD a time machine...& you went back in time...what would you pack? Here's my list of things I'd never want to be without: * plenty of toilet paper (laugh all you like, you KNOW you'd miss it! ) * a first aid kit (with some basic meds such as aspirin & diarrhea pills) * prayer book, rosary & bible * a week's change of clothes--one for winter, one for summer * a camera & loads of film * a thick sketchbook & artist's materials * raw silver & gold * a super sharp knife & a whetstone (& a rifle) * plenty of salt, pepper & chili powder * depending on the era, appropriate, useful items with which to barter * milled soap * umbrella / raincoat & plastic hat, plus rain boots * a strong magnet, a compass, & a large magnifying glass * lots of waxed kitchen matches & a flint stone * a durable mess kit & a canteen * and lest I ignore some good advice from "Hitchhiker's Guide"--a huge beach towel I'm sure I could think up lots more, but my time machine isn't like Doctor Who's (i.e., bigger on the inside than it is on the out), so I couldn't possibly take all I'd like to have! See you last millennium! Last one there is a slug-a-bed! Maggiepie "WHERE'S THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE?"[/b]

[b]You certainly would! You'd almost need the Doctor's T.A.R.D.I.S to lug all that around! But I love that you want your family along. I'd take Elic, my bff & helper, if I had one of any size! When you camp out (assuming you do, do you have everything including the kitchen sink, too? In a Winnebago? Sounds as if you'd need one! One more thing, whom would you call in the past??
