What island would you go to?

Post by richardstephens » Tue Aug 06, 2019 4:06 am

Many survivalists voted that they would go to a small island. What small island would you go to? Anything that woul;d have to be overcome i.e. natives? What would stop the infection from reaching the island? How would you know it's safe to leave?

I would go to Fantasy Island. There I would hunt Mr. Rourke but he would be forbidden from using any of his powers. I would still lose but I would learn something about myself in the process.

As a Knight of the Sovereign Military Order of Sealand I would be obligated to defend it and would retreat to it and take my place manning the guns. :crazy:

Little St. James is likely to be uninhabited for a little while. Maybe try there.

Mr Rourke was a robot that escaped from Westworld, he was secretly controlled by Scaramonga. Your only chance would be if you can turn Nick Nak aka Tatoo into an ally.

As you can see I've already visualized that scenario.

See the island on the horizon? That's Fantasy Island back there. Little known fact.

Except that if were me bugging out there, it would soon look like this:

So I'd radio for help. But instead of sending this:

Well that explains a lot.

Scaramonga was of course one of the many covers that Saruman used over the centuries. Just a few of the others being Frankenstein, Dracula, Count Dooku, Christopher Lee, Lord Summerisle, Captain Wolfgang von Kleinschmidt, Jabberwocky, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Death, Ramses, Captain Rochefort, Lucifer, Fu Manchu, Grigori Rasputin and Mephistoles. A being with that much power could never be defeated in finality.

I f I thought there was a real slate wiper coming up, I'd head for Fatu Hiva. I have the nav equipment, charts etc all on hand - pretty much everything needed for the trip.

Folks in NOLA use both. Albeit one at a time on different foods...
Shrimp Poybo - Crystal.
Gumbo or raw oysters - Tabasco

Technically most of New Orleans is an island so you may not have to move.

Same. New Zealand but I'm also thinking of a tropical island nit Thailand but if there is a country there that that population is just small for sure they would have fewer catastrophes.

Does Temptation Island still exist... you know, for the ladies??

I would love to have Sanibel and Captiva Island in Florida. But then, I'd have to battle Floridaman... and I don't know if there's enough Meth, Marlboros, and Machetes to keep those hordes at bay...
