Bible, knife, and 100ft of Paracorde
The bible as a moral guide to your life, even when alone. The knife to build shelter, feed yourself, and defense. And, the paracorde to aid in the purposes of the knife. The latter two are your typical survivor professional's main items of choice.

Depends whether it is inhabited or not. If it is inhabited, I'd take money, credit card, and passport. If not, I'd take a boat with GPS, a manual how to use it, and fresh water.

That depends....

 - am I stranded on this island ?

- or is someone coming back to pick me up later, therefore allowing me to have a way of getting off of it ?

If I'm going to be stranded - I'd take....

 1.) a boat with an engine.
 2) some fuel for the engine, and ...
 3) a radio to communicate with the mainland or others once having left the island.

If I would be on an Island already, There would have been no way to bring things!

Akash J on Feb 14, 2014

Hmm... As I read this, I am on the island and my responses are for what, and not whom, I will bring. My answers are: 1) remaining items I brought to the island, 2) any items I acquired while on the island, and 3) my memories, including my opinions and analysis, of the island.

Tequila George on Feb 14, 2014

Depends, what type of island and conditions: tropical or polar, dry or wet, populated or not, with friends or enemies, primative or industrial, sandy or rocky, on this planet or another, terra firma or artificial, sunny or shady, food available or not, ad infinitum... and then on to my own state of mind: looking for solitude or companionship, retired or need to get back to job, married or single, ad infinitum... then there's the issue of "could bring": on my person?, could I ship items in a container?, could I get a house airlifted?, ad infinitum... and ad naseum

bnagirl84 on Sep 29, 2014

So I am on an Island. If I am "bringing things" it means I am leaving the Island. The question does not every mention where you are going just that you are "bringing things". Not knowing where you are going makes it hard to know what to bring.
