This is hypothetical!
If you were to find yourself alone, on a deserted island, with no chance of rescue, and no way of contacting anyone anywhere, what 5 (Five) things would you preferably have in or about your presence (with you, or nearby)? In order to help you survive, NOT ESCAPE!
I’m going to try and respond as realistically as I can to this hypothetical question.
Not knowing the conditions (natural food source/clean water source/terrain) or atmosphere (to include weather patterns, average temperatures, etc. etc.) of thus said Island. I find myself answering with the most broad of use supplies that I can think of, that I could possible find use to me in most adverse conditions unknown to me. Without overtaxing my brain too much with thought my “things” would include the following: 1 Clean water supply such as a river, 1 hunting knife w/leather holder, 1 nearby uninhabited cave of moderate dept (say 200ft.), 1 overly large herd of deer with very few predators, and finally an iron kettle(3 gallon).
