This is the second monthly poll I'm running, this time more specific than a simple preference question. The three base options are tools, food, and games, though there are combination options like last time.
Have fun!

Tools, food, clothing, a tent, sleeping bag, solar panels to power various items and a lot of books. I'd also bring an MP3 player with various talking books and records including The Police "Message in a Bottle" :P

I'd bring food, a laptop and my prized helmet along with medical supplies that I'll need. I want it to feel as much like home as possible.

That's funny, I just saw a video like this yesterday:

I'd also bring a sign saying "Get off my lawn!"

You’ll need a couple of pink flamingos to go with that.

I've been playing the game "Fallout 4" which is set in America and I noticed lots of pink flamingo's stuck in people's lawns and wondered what that is all about. Maybe the English equivalent are garden gnomes?

The gnomes look better.The flamingos are now sort of a joke ,I think they were popular back in the fifties.

It’s growing all over my island now.
Looks like a volcano smoking when I fire one up.
