I have often thought about what I would get off the ship if I had the chance, knowing that I could be marooned for a long time. I quite enjoy the thought of taking anything I want from what is available. But what I notice most in such movies is the way they so easily discard possible useful items that they find. No matter how much I had, in such a situation I would discard nothing, & it makes me wonder if any thinking man would actually act in such a way.
If we were to have to abandon our homes for any reason & were forced to flee to the wilderness, we would not have the luxury of carrying barrels of gunpowder plus several pistols & muskets. We would have to choose very wisely what we took & what we must leave behind.
