Dear 100 Hour Board,

What's the first thing you would do upon discovering yourself stranded on a deserted (not necessarily a desert island, but definitely not a dessert island) island?

-Swimming with the Fishes


Dear Swimming,

1. Locate a source of fresh water.

2. Assess the availability of food sources.

3. Locate the highest altitude I can find.

4. Gather as much dry wood and kindling as possible at the high altitude.

5. Set up a short-term shelter with food and water.

6. Start signal fire and keep it burning for as long as possible.

7. Wait for rescue.




Dear ranger bob, 

  1. Build a fort to fend off polar bears.
  2. Inside the fort, build a dessert island.
  3. ?
  4. Profit.


--Ardilla Feroz, thinking about dessert in Delčevo, Macedonia


Dear person,

Probably cry as I think about the inevitability of death. Then pray. Then probably build a fire and try to get some coconuts.



Dear Fishy,

Attempt to desert it.
