My family, tools and survival gear, a copy of the library of Congress on hard drive. The rest would depend on where we are going.

I could hope that whatever makes us ourselves, or only in a
non-spiritual description--- "wits". One may prefer "soul": whatever.

The problem will be for me and whoever else I can rope in for
the job, to find them again in time... life can make that rough.

Essential oils, because, well, they are 'essential'...



But I quite like it here. I wonder if they would allow me to take the entire planet? I mean, how uncivilized if they can't let you take a few of the niceties of life.

My cat.


+1. if I can only take one item.

I had a health situation recently and I remember thinking, if I die, what about the poor cat?

I have a ton of books and videos but as a living creature I value the cat most.

I'd take stockpiles of insulin and diabetes supplies for my son.

Seeds of our favourite vegetables.

And my cat Hermes.


Sad to hear about your son's condition Atsbhct, my father suffers from diabetes too. Medications are really an important part of our lives, I forgot about it. Thanks for the reminder!

Thumbs up for the cat and seeds. I'd definitely take my dog with me if she still alive, sweet and smart dog.

I'll bring my husband with me. I can't imagine living anywhere without him.
Also definitely bringing toilet paper!

Imo the toilet paper is a must, who knows what the state of those affairs is over there

There would be no way in hell that I would ever leave this planet unless I died, and even then I doubt if I could take anything with me or would even leave here at all.


Haha Ricky, this is just a hypothetical assumption, I also am too attached to this planet and don't want leave, but just for the sake of the conversation there's got to be some stuff that you don't want to let go.

This has been gone over before...



Maybe I missed the memo, but why the towel, what's so special about it?

Great idea, I like testing new delicious things.

Yeah me too, I don't like losing items that worked hard for, but at the end of the day I'll fit in whatever situation I fall into.

Thumbs up, best of everything in your relationship. We'll adapt to the new place but beings/relationships cannot be replaced.

I cant believe no one said the obvious yet.

Beer.

I'm taking beer. Because if I'm setting foot down on any alien planets at any point, my ass is watching alien sunsets with a Founders in hand.

Just to keep things compact and not to have a super-long posting, I'd thank all the other posters for their contribution! I read them all and I gladly see that we value more our close people, our pets, relationships. There surely are some things that we're very much attached to, me too and I'd hate to lose them, but given any hardship that life might bring, I think I can cope without them (things), even though I know it'd be hard.

Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy:

A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (a mind-bogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you—daft as a brush, but very very ravenous); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: nonhitchhiker) discovers that a hitchhiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, washcloth, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet-weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitchhiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitchhiker might accidentally have “lost.” What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the Galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through and still know where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with.


It seems we have a lot of strags on this thread.

Now I see the other valuable uses of a towel, thanks Lumenari.
