My Discman and plenty of batteries so I can listen to music to soothe my savage breast.

Ms. Dodged,

Ahhhhh....imitation is the highest form of flattery. Stroke my ego some more.

Books and bay-gen radio.

Music, definitely. It would be a lesser world if I didn't have access to my favorites.

Maybe a sufficient supply of chocolate...

off road transportation: could be a dirtbike, ATV, mountainbike, horse - anything capable of going around roadblocks etc. It looks like I will have the use of all of these - WOOHOO !

May fall into the food category, but vitamins, herbs, minerals. Just to make sure to keep the immune system strong. Don't want to be getting sick. Also, first aid kits with a lot of stuff like anti- diarrhea medicine, and do your own stitches, that kind of stuff.

Vodka, the medicine cabinet in a bottle. Some for barter, and some for (*hic*) medicinal purposes.

A Bible.
