Some one suggest that we have a polll on if you were stranded in a desert what tool would you like to have.

Now I think thats foolish. Theres no wood there so I’d want the lightest tool that I could carry.

So the poll is if you were on a beach with ample supply of driftwood of various shapes floating by or stuck in the sand, What tool would you like to have. I’m assuming that you have a long extension cord available available for your use (With power flowing out the end)

To assist you in your mental thoughts you wight want to visit this site.

LOL…I am literally laughing out loud…that fool is crazy….what was he thinking about so late in the night…

THIS POLL/QUESTION OF THE NIGHT is much better…of course we dont want to berate the author of that other post…he may have been off work for a few months and just not thinking as sharply…not to mention the duress he is under as he contemplates returning to work to ensure the future of america…

Now…to your poll…I would want my shopsmith…since it is a 5-1 (plus) power tool…and I could make a hammer and set of nails out of the wood…

I dont think I would make sculptures of horses out of the wood I find…other things may be on my mind (assuming I am alone)...If I wasnt alone I may have time to make horse sculptures…

I cant wait to see what Frank says…he is so creative with what he does…with one tool he would create an awesome home…

(FYI…i went to work today…I wandered around my class aimlessly…I am sure the night before school starts I will think of a few things I need to do…)

MsDeb is right, you could theoretically fashion all the tools you need from basic elements and resources of the Desert or if it is not too late can we make this an Island. Or do we need to wait till Global Warming melts enough of the IceCap that driftwood comes to us in the desert, or is this a surrealistic Moses and Manna/Driftwood from Heaven thing ? :) Just Teasing…..But I would not mind having a ”Swiss Army or Leatherman” version with all my favorite FlexCut gouges, knifes, etc…and for inspiration, If it was an Island or the Desert, I would prefer the company of…did not know if that was in the rules :)

The 5 Hottest Women from LOST…

Kate Austen (Evangeline Lilly)
Ana Lucia-Cortez (Michelle Rodriguez)
Juliet (Elizabeth Mitchell)
Sun Kwon (Yunjin Kim)
Nikki Fernandez (Kiele Sanchez)

Ya know this could make a cool reality series or RPG…

Matt don’t berate people who have dumb ideas, because that could be the thinking outside of the box that we all need. LOL . Love your comments. Who were you writing about.

I think that cooler full of beer works for the desert too.

Now thats funny. Fish in the desert. Must be a sand fish. Hard to clean. And you have to eat a lot of them. I would take my leatherman wave. It has a file, saw, knife, bottle opener and a few othe things on it. The sand you can use as sand paper. Cactus wood is really nice to turn. Not only that but its easy to sand and work with. LOL!!!!!!
