My friend Skeet just wrote a post Not quite Gilligan’s Isle and she picked five people that she thought she might be able to survive with on a desert island for a year.
I was one of the lucky people she thought she might be able to tolerate for that long. Of course, she enlisted me as the groups gardener in the hopes that I’d grow veggies and keep them all fed. I know she wrote her post late at night so I’ll forgive her for forgetting that I’m a nurse. I’m sure having a medical professional trapped on a desert island with you couldn’t be all that bad, now could it? I also make a mean lean-to if I do say so myself.
Now, if I were trapped on desert island with five other people I wonder who else I might most want to be trapped there with me?
I certainly think I’d like to have Mr. Fab on the island. I’m not really sure how good his survival skills might be, but I’m pretty sure he’d be able to cheer us up and keep us amused for the year. Once whatever survival related work was done each day we could just gather round him as if he were a television set and let him babble away about lemurs and other crazy things that pop into that wild mind of his and it would be entertaining.
Mrs. Lifecruiser would have to be there too. She’s a world traveler and has gathered knowledge from all the areas she’s been in. I’m sure she’d use her experiences to help us survive. Plus she’s becoming an experienced Ship’s Captain so she might be able build us a boat and help us navigate off the island before the year was through.
I think Brian would also be a good person to have along. He seems to be a bit of a philosopher and I think he’d end up being the realist of the group and help keep us on track.
Now, I don’t know Kahea as well as I probably should, especially since she comes here and leaves me nice comments ALL the time, however, she seems like she’s a very resourceful person and you always want someone like that along for the ride when you’re stuck on a island!
Heather, as in Heather from Beautiful BC and her dog Hugo would be the final person that I think I would pick, especially if I could only have five other people on the Island with me. Believe me, I’d pick more if I could! Heather and her pup Hugo love British Columbia, and since that’s an area of Canada that is quite rugged and full of outdoorsy people I’m pretty sure that Heather must have some survival skills up her sleeve.
Now that I’ve chosen my fellow stranded islanders I wonder who they might choose if they were stuck on an island for a year? Would they take me too? Or do they know other people who might help them survive for a whole year on a deserted island? Keep an eye on their sites, maybe they’ll tell us soon.
