Strong drink and a fleshlight.

It's sometimes difficult to get an answer out of people isn't it? Assuming you luck in and discover an island with a pizza oven and the whole gamut of ingredients for making the pizza, what toppings would you go for?

I'd get a bike for traveling and exercise, some food if the island wasn't going to provide and some all weather gear.

You go to your "desert island", I'll stick to my Mt. Desert Island, thank you very much

I did like Acadia quite a lot.

I've thought of this occasionally over the past days, but I really can't think of much. Solar panels and my Kindle? It'd be nice to get some reading done. Maybe some fishing gear and the means to make fire and chop up the catch etc. 

I think I'd quite enjoy the peace and quiet really. How big's the island, is it worth bringing my mountain bike so I can make some sweet jumps?

Well you'd have to be there to find out, not traipsing round penguinland.

Uh...

"French explorer Samuel de Champlain's observation that the summits of the island's mountains were free of vegetation as seen from the sea led him to call the island L’Isle des Monts-déserts (meaning island of barren mountains)."

That photo doesn't look very barren to me.

That's far more the sort of answer I was expecting.

That's a plus, in my estimation.

I'd much prefer a warm tropical island. So I'm going there.

Do you anticipate sharing these three or so months with anyone else on your choice of island or are you looking for a deserted desert island? If other people are taken out of the equation I'd still take the aforementioned items and a device for playing music and hope for an indigenous pizza oven.

Temperature on Pukapuka is hitting ~37C this afternoon, and some great whites are circling for feeding time...

Whilst I'm flattered, I trust my role is as your Man Friday rather than your fleshlight?

what would you get, Peter?

I fear that my "hey, peace and quiet and stuff" would mean I was quickly very bored in reality, if it ever became reality. On the other hand, the time needed to get and prepare food might negate that. Should probably pack some antibiotics too.

Honestly I was thinking more as a fleshlight but I guess we could just bring one each. Less room for strong drink though (mine's a strong tea).
