    An Island To Oneself

    a good read for downtime. i don't know if i could handle it but i'd like to try...

    This is the story of six years which I spent alone, in two spells on an uninhabited coral atoll half a mile long and three hundred yards wide in the South Pacific. It was two hundred miles from the nearest inhabited island, and I first arrived there on October 7, 1952 and remained alone (with only two yachts calling) until June 24, 1954, when I was taken off ill after a dramatic rescue.
    I was unable to return to the atoll until April 23, 1960 and this time I remained alone until December 27, 1963.

    civilization is optional. however, with the distaff side indoor plumbing is mandatory.

    That would be AWESOME! As long as i had a board or two, and the island had a wave.
