A friend of mine heading to an island? What would I send him/her off with? Well, most of my friends are either woodworkers of GeoCachers so before I suggest what they take it will depend of which hobby they have.
If she is a woodworker, yes even the “fair sex” get their hair full of sawdust and wood chips, I’d pack her a few pieces of wood and a chip carving knife. More items, a small stone so she can keep the knife sharp and a few pencils to lay out a pattern on the wood.
On the other hand, if she is a Geocacher, I’d expect that she had a GPS receiver, but I’d make sure she had lots of spare batteries and a solar charger. Yes there geocaches almost everywhere. the island would have to be deserted for quite a while to be devoid of caches.
Hmm, not five items yet. Well, some water bottles, I like a Hydro Flask. They’re well insulated and will keep ice for about day. But if the island is really deserted there may not be a source of ice.
