Lets play a game...
If you were stranded on a deserted island, what 3 items would you take with you if could only take 3 items?

I would take:

A wireless internet laptop with lifelong battery - endless possibilties. Map out where we are, keep in touch with family and friends.

My girlfriend, Collette - I wouldn't want to be alone!

A Crucifix - Because religion means a lot to me.

What would you take? :D

I guess I'd go with your choices.





I just hope Collette won't mind!:p :D ;)



Just kidding!

A seaplane, a McToy, and an ammo box.

(I might as well hide a final stage of a multicache there before I fly back home.)
(I'll use the plane's GPS to get coords)

Hmmm...

I'd take RULOST2? - she's my best friend in addition to everything else.
Ditto the laptop with the lifetime battery. (Hopefully that deserted island will have WiFi. Most third world countries have more WiFi access than the US!)

And a LARGE bottle of Marie Sharp's Fiery Hot Habanero Pepper sauce. (Can't get enough of that - luckily UPS brought another 5 bottles today! LOL)

Would you mind letting me in on your source, its hard enough finding good habanero peppers and I'm always looking for new sources. I make a mean 3 alarm chili :eek: (goes good with COLD beer, lol) this sounds like it might be a good supplement to just such a dish.

I'd go for the TV and VCR with the entire taped series of LOST. Those guys have the life. Surviving without having to work.

Smitty - I SWEAR by this stuff! The flavor is fantastic. And where else would you expect to find it, but at Mo Hotta-Mo Betta (http://mohotta.com/ShowView/product/578/5)!

And I REALLY like the great jalapeno peppers canned in Mexico (the ones canned in the US are too vinegary and bitter). Try this site (http://www.mexgrocer.com/catagories-chile-peppers.html) (the Herdez brand is the best).

I realize that specialty items are big sellers on the net. I online shop for other items but never seem to think of it when it comes to specialty food items. Thanks Bruce. I'll have to make up a 12 quart kettle of my chili for an upcoming event, I'd appreciate your humble opinion. :D

I have quite a few listings for specialty foods. Email me with what you're intersted in, and I'll see if I can point you in the right direction. :D :D
