So, you're moving to a desert island for 10 years with your family

and you can only take 5 items per person. Assume that shelter and food would not be an issue, but you have no internet, no phone, and no you can't order anything online. An item can be a set of things that actually go together, like a tea set or screwdriver with interchangeable heads etc. What would you bring for yourself and your family? Go!

We can't live without books. So, I would need five sets of books or four great books and that tool set you mentioned.

Wow, that's really difficult. Are we allowed to bring something like a Kindle loaded with books or is that considered the "internet"?

10 years eh?

I'd pack a cooking set, tool set and solar power kit. Then i can make toys, useful items and good food.

Dh would die without internet, so he'd manage to pack a PC and satelite link....

three kids - buckets of sunscreen, medical kit, medicine kit with herbal remedies book.

 

I think we could create the rest....and learn to read by writing in the sand? Fascinating question though.
