Authentic Project Idea – Surviving on a Deserted Island

IMG_Maine Island 2

While on a recent journey through the northeastern waterways of the United States and Canada, I saw one small island after another.  Thinking back on the authentic project I was involved with about establishing a colony on Mars, I started to imagine what it would be like to survive on one of these islands.  What would I need to survive?  What would I eat, what kind of shelter would I need, what kinds of clothes would I need?  (OK-this is definitely a fictitious authentic project as personally I need a five-star hotel in Bar Harbor, Maine, with plenty of lobster, and lovely clothes available in the local boutiques-but I digress…)

This project would vary based on where the island was located as needs would be different based on climate, natural resources, etc.
