The slinky I advocated bringing some posts ago would be useful on long evenings when the net is down. In the lesser gravity, it likely will be more lively.

@edgarblythe,
I hope there are long flights of stairs to have some Slinky races as they descend downward.

Swiffer sweeper, because dust storms will be a problem otherwise.

@edgarblythe,
Turtle Wax so we can keep our vehicles spiffy. And no, it's not to be used on turtles.
Which reminds me, we need to bring some turtles.

@glitterbag,
no excess amount of turtles are killed in the manufacture of turtle wax

@glitterbag,
I saw Bladerunner yesterday with my youngest. The first "question" on the test concerned a tortoise in the desert.

I'm not sure if we mentioned rakes and hoes, but we need them to manage the potential for forest fires.

@edgarblythe,
In that case we would also need to bring a forest.

@edgarblythe,
Cure fan eh?



I think you're on to something. If people listen to music like this they may be inspired to plant some trees.

@izzythepush,
The notice on your video blames the person who uploaded it for not making it available here.

@edgarblythe,
That wasn't me. I wouldn't know how to go about doing something like that.

Is the Petrified Forest available for the journey?

@Sturgis,
Why not. We can't bring Humphrey Bogart, but the forest is still there.
