Shipwrecked! : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

For those of us that joked awhile back about a mixed-format show ("Temptation Junkyard", etc.), checked out the last question in the Junk Yard Wars home page's FAQ about other shows available. Hmmmm.

Hey Chip. I'm obviously home page stupid. Could you please post the link to the site you're talking about? I'd like to be able to enjoy it as much as you. Thanks. You're a pal. :-)

Ok, folks: The fast way to that page is . And a question, just to keep it interesting: If you were shipwrecked, what one tool would you bring? And remember, there's no electric and no gas. (Hand tools only.) My vote goes to Tim Leatherman's Super Tool. (I carry a PSTII, but I think the big saw blade on the Super Tool would come in handy.)

That was odd. The web address for "Shipwrecked" got deleted from my previous post. Let's try again: There. Hope you just read it!

It said you're allowed three luxury items.

1)A deck of cards. -- You have to have something to do during the slow times.

2)A Leatherman is definitely a must. -- A good, all-around useful tool.

3)A Rambo knife. -- You never know when you're going to run into that wild boar. :)

I don't expect them to approve the Rambo knife, but hey, a guy can dream, right?

How about a magnifying glass to start fires? On Survivor, these are specifically prohibited as luxury items. In the first series, B. B. Anderson had a pair of fake reading glasses made up ahead of time with magnifying lenses SPECIFICALLY to get around this little taboo. The result? His team had fire right away- and Mark Burnett Productions now checks everyone's glasses at the gate!

1) solar powered chain saw 2) carpenter 3) chef If the carpenter is allowed to take his tools then I'd like home brew kits instead of the solar powered chain saw. When are we off??

Ok, we all need to stand facing the same way. Was the idea to get off the island or make it comfortable for our stay? Gilligan? Professor? Anyone?

-- Chip Haynes (, April 10, 2001.

If it would be with two Ginger/Maryann types I think stay and be comfy would be the order of the day......

The QE2.

To hell with the rules. I'm bringing my hammock, lots of books, Loretta Lynn's RV, big brass bed, a four wheeler, surfboard, ski-doo, pizza, TV, full wardrobe, and a fireplace. I am taking resumes for man servant.

I'm not really a rule breaker. I would bring a nice bottle of Chianti.

We were talking about this one around the office, and I think I've found a way to tell the optimists from the pessimists: The optimist would bring an attractive member of the opposite sex as their luxury item. The pessimist would bring somebody big to eat.
