If you were trapped on a desert island what three items would you bring?
  • A survival knife (not just any knife- mine has a smooth primary blade, a saw on top of the spine, and a serrated edge on the upsweep … a compass in the handle butt and a full pack in the handle including flint starter, fishing line, hooks, thread, etc. I would want to bring my 8-inch blade.
  • Military grade parachute (with harness, paracords and all the trimming)- has multiple uses, best of which include water collection and filtration systems.
  • Chris: He’s training to be a paramedic so he can do the “doctoring” when I do something stupid and hurt myself! Which would happen! Ha! No Chris you say? A second knife or a military survival book.
If you could have a dinner party with three people (alive/dead) whom would you choose? Honestly, I would be lame and ask for my sister Tasha, brother Brycee and best friend Chris, BUT I am sure you’re looking for something more exciting. So if I had a holodeck and needed to talk to some of the greatest minds, the following:
  • Gene Kranz (Apollo Mission Control)
  • Werner von Braun (the man behind the entire space race just about!)
  • Captain Kathryn Janeway (Galileo Galilee if I can’t go fictional)
