    Too easy… 1911 Gun , Whip and a pint of Jack Daniels

    • Big Al: July 30, 2012 at 1:48 pm

      I assume the Jack Daniels is for sterilizing cuts and wounds you may receive as a result of your epic burglary.

  • Larry: July 30, 2012 at 9:25 am

    1.always the whip…just because
    2. My father’s journal ..always in his shadow
    3. The contact information for all my international hook-ups

    • Big Al: July 30, 2012 at 1:51 pm

      The immortal Sean Connery’s shadow is more like a storm cloud.

  • Sue Pyzynski: July 30, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    Black AMX card

    • Big Al: July 30, 2012 at 2:00 pm

      A Black AMX card is more like a Green WMD when in the hands of a woman staring at anything made of gold.

  • brandy g.: July 30, 2012 at 3:26 pm

    I would bring
    1. A Whip for protection
    2. A Journal for drawing maps and jotting down location and secret codes to remember.
    3. A book on translation of languages. You never know where what country you will be in and the language you will have to know.

    • Big Al: July 31, 2012 at 1:33 pm

      As long as you can speak American… you’re in the clear.

  • Jerold A. Sauer: July 30, 2012 at 4:41 pm

    great in all aspects

    • Big Al: July 31, 2012 at 1:35 pm

      If you are referring to the DOM Revolution… I 100% agree.

  • tamar: July 30, 2012 at 7:06 pm

    a cell phone, a teleportation device, and some cash

    • Big Al: July 31, 2012 at 1:36 pm

      “Beam me up Scotty”

  • Tom R: July 30, 2012 at 7:23 pm

    1. A ground penetrating, underground capable G.P.S. -To track my way in and out with the ease of a treasure hunting master.
    2. an automatic booby trap remover – To cut the hassle and near death experiences to a minimum.
    3. an Antigua Leather custom spec’d, hand tooled, exquisitely crafted leather carrying pouch – To carry my Golden idol out in perfect Indiana style.

    • Big Al: July 31, 2012 at 1:38 pm

      SOLID response Tom. I don’t think Harrison Ford could have said it better himself!

  • Benita Glickman: July 30, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    1. I would have said a whip, but for variety’s sake, I’ll say a loaded Smith and Wesson Hand Ejector (an HE2) for protection and the magnets in the ammo serving as a compass.

    2.a woven leather bound jornal to make notes, draw maps, diagrams, jot down names codes, words etc.

    3. A MAC PC fully loaded with all capabilites including thesauras and dictionaries in all obscure languages.

    What a fun contest!

    • Big Al: July 31, 2012 at 1:40 pm

      Ammo compass! Impressive Benita.

  • Dan H: July 30, 2012 at 9:31 pm


    1. A bottle of water. Hydration should never come second to theatricality or adventure.

    2. A Moleskin notebook for keeping track of all of the relics I am going to track down…. that particular day.

    3. A loaf of bread. Bread can be consumed to make it the proper weight for switching with idols and not setting off pressure plates. It can also be consumed to lessen the effects of hunger.

    • Big Al: July 31, 2012 at 1:44 pm

      Dan, I think Bobby Buche is your new biggest fan and will personally power bomb, Captain Insaneo style, anyone who thinks you should replace your water with Gatorade.

  • Tara S.: July 30, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    1. A whip of course. You aren’t Indiana Jones without your trusty whip.
    2. A lighter, or box of matches
    3. A bundle of maps for all over the world

    • Big Al: July 31, 2012 at 11:10 am

      Bundle of maps? Go with a Tom Tom!

  • Marty: July 31, 2012 at 12:36 am

    jug of water-for refreshment and weight for idol removal
    lighter- for light or campfire
    food- to eat or to not be eatten by what’s in cave!

    • Big Al: July 31, 2012 at 11:03 am

      When you say food, are you thinking Reese’s Pieces or lamb shank? Either way, I’m a fan.

  • Brad S.: July 31, 2012 at 1:01 am

    1) 550 cord, you can use that stuff for everything
    2) Wasp knife, it’s just badass
    3) MRE, for food, but it can be used as weapon/ diversion device as well.

    • Big Al: July 31, 2012 at 10:00 am

      Dude the WASP knife is key! You could rule an entire jungle tribe just by demonstrating the magic power of your “Boom Knife”! Check out “WASP Injection Knife vs. Watermelon” on youtube.

  • Gary W: July 31, 2012 at 1:55 am

    Map to the Chachapoyan Temple (to find the Idol of Fertility)
    A sandbag (to replace the idol)
    A Whip (because it’s cool)

    • Big Al: July 31, 2012 at 9:54 am

      From the age of 13, every man begins his search for the idol of Fertility.

  • jose benavides: July 31, 2012 at 2:54 am

    I would carry a knife to protect myself and food and water to survive in the jungle when i am running from the people chasing me

    • Big Al: July 31, 2012 at 9:50 am

      We’re talking a full blown jungle! That would supply you with all the food and water you need. Don’t let a little Montezuma’s Revenge slow you down!

  • dani marie: July 31, 2012 at 4:32 am

    sandbag to replace the idol, something with gps ( i get lost ), and a first aid kit because im a major klutz.

    • Big Al: July 31, 2012 at 9:48 am

      Dani, your too hard on yourself!

  • Lori Williams: July 31, 2012 at 9:18 am

    A cellphone, a clean pair of underwear, and a copy of Fifty Shades of Grey. :)

    • Big Al: July 31, 2012 at 9:47 am

      I assume the first pair got dirty as a result of Fifty Shades of Grey.

  • Mary Beth Elderton: July 31, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    Whip–other wise I am not Indiana Jones
    GPS–for getting myself into and out of there
    Bundle of cash–to facilitate the proper functioning of transportation and government bureaucrats

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 1:33 pm

      Bundle of cash is always a good call even if you’re just going to say…. a bar.

  • patricia skinner: July 31, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    Pistol-for snakes, all kinds
    Antibiotics-to combat infections / diseases known or unknown
    iPhone-to map, blog, keep files, pics. etc of the whole adventure

    • Big Al: August 1, 2012 at 9:43 am

      You’re going to need some pretty strong antibiotics to combat the ancient bubonic plague, which I hear is making a comeback.

  • Diane Baum: July 31, 2012 at 6:14 pm

    1. My ipad that has map quest into caves and forest
    2 a gun ( I hate guns)
    3My whip kinky….
    4 antibotics and a PDR CD
    5 a super wonderful tiny camera that takes viedos
    6 chargers that never need to be recharged
    7 cool hats

    • Big Al: August 1, 2012 at 9:41 am

      Diane, I am perplexed by number 7. What kind of hats are we talking about here and how are you going to use them to steal a golden idol?

  • John OBrien: July 31, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    1. Counterweight to replace the idol on the first trap.
    2. LED flashlight – torches are atmospheric but I want something that focuses.
    3. C-4 to remove pesky boulders in the way.
    Note that my whip is around my waist, my pistol is in a holster and my multifunction knife is in
    my pocket. I’m not assuming it’s the 1930′s or 1940′s – Indy is still alive and kickin’.

    • Big Al: August 1, 2012 at 9:39 am

      Now all you need is a little Asian kid from The Goonies and a annoying blond chick and you’re on your way to the Temple of Doom!

  • Lim: July 31, 2012 at 8:33 pm

    1) Super glue. I’m gonna need to do some damage control after.
    2) Dwarf bread. You’ll never go hungry when you have dwarf bread.
    3) A towel. Dude. I have to explain?

    • Big Al: August 1, 2012 at 9:33 am

      Is this Gimli? What a badass.

  • Rob N.: July 31, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    1) iPhone with GPS capability
    2) A dozen tacos with the Doritos shell
    3) Pabst Blue Ribbon 6pk

    And by the size of the leather case, I have no doubt that all of these items will fit without a problem.

    • Big Al: August 1, 2012 at 9:32 am

      If I’m trudging through a jungle looking for an ancient temple, I’m hanging out with this guy!

  • Tim Stephens: July 31, 2012 at 9:52 pm

    1 – small stone sculpture of the thinking man to replace the idol
    2 – a gun (because the best Indy scene is when he shoots the sword guy)
    3 – RC copter with cam to scout booby traps

    • Big Al: August 1, 2012 at 9:17 am

      By far the best scene of any of the movies… and it was improvised. RC copter is a solid addition.

  • Gaylond: August 1, 2012 at 8:43 am

    1.) Fully auto AR-15, why waste your time with a damn single shot pistol. Oh, I forgot to mention that the AR-15 is a fold able model. I think that it would make Hitman

    2.) Fold up grappling hook, beats the hell out of a whip for swinging to safety from some stinky asshole Frenchmen.
    Wait Frenchmen, need I say more……
    3.) Eight 12 oz. bottles of Victory Brew Golden Monkey. Why eight? Easy, to share with a pilot and one for the natives.
    Only one would be needed for the natives because when lead by the French dude, they see the monkey on the label and figure that Indie is a god and that he has blessed them with nector from heaven or wherever those retards think it is. Plus, they can zap the frenchmen in the neck with those screwed up poison darts.

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 1:44 pm

      I had to take a day to formulate a response worthy of your comment that was clearly written under the close guidance of the God ordained Henry the Moose of Manliness. However, I have come to the hard conclusion that I simply cannot do it the justice that it obviously deserves. You Sir are a literary legend. DOM Salute!

  • Michelle S: August 1, 2012 at 10:10 am

    1. Water bottle with purifier cause you know there’s not going to be an Evian spring nearby.
    2. A whip to fend off rivals.
    3. Compass/map combo lol. Kind of obvious.

    • Big Al: August 1, 2012 at 5:03 pm

      As long as there is a Jim Beam bourbon bayou close your good to go.

  • Jennifer B.: August 1, 2012 at 11:48 am

    1. Satellite Radio
    2. My whip
    3. Pistol

    • Big Al: August 1, 2012 at 4:59 pm

      May the visionary rhetoric of Howard Stern guide you in you quest.

  • Kate S: August 1, 2012 at 12:37 pm

    1. My trusty whip
    2. A helpful book
    3. Water purifier/boiler (thanks Michelle for the idea!)

    • Big Al: August 1, 2012 at 4:58 pm

      What kind of book are we talking about here? I recommend “Stealing Golden Idols for Dummies”.

  • Elaine Boychuk: August 1, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    1. the whip of course
    2. snake bite kit
    3. magnifying glass

    • Big Al: August 1, 2012 at 4:56 pm

      Screw the snake bite kit. A true badass would just suck the venom out.

  • Rick Bryant: August 1, 2012 at 5:28 pm

    A Whip
    A sack of sand
    A Gun

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 11:13 pm

      Rick… step it up brother!

  • D. Bowers: August 1, 2012 at 6:03 pm

    1.) my little Black Book – listing all my international contacts & informants…and women. It’s the 1930′s…who needs an i-phone? Or money? I am Indy, for Christ’s sake…my natural charm will get me drinks and places money cannot.
    2.) Zippo, engraved and in 18 k gold. I was a Boy Scout…so I’m always prepared.
    3.) a can of Kiwi shoe polish. My whip hangs on my belt, as does my revolver (Indy didn’t carry a 1911). But, I do need to keep my leather hat, leather jacket, leather boots, leather whip, and of course my Antigua leather bag in tip-top polished order!

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 11:16 pm

      Damn Bowers. As an Eagle Scout myself, I applaud you response. Preparing your mind, body, and all leather goods to kick ass… DOM (3 finger Boy Scout) Salute!

  • Lawrence Waters: August 1, 2012 at 6:58 pm

    It’s getting tough to be original with all the great answers above but here’s my shot at it:

    1. A Tardis to take me directly to the idol. (if you’re not familiar with this, google ‘Doctor Who’)
    2. A Mossberg 500 tactical shotgun.
    3. The Leather Messenger Bag; sure it will hold the idol but more importantly, it will make me look dashing and heroic.

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 11:20 pm

      Lawrence, probably the most original answer yet. I’ll save all the lazy asses a trip to google… Tardis: “A time machine and spacecraft in the British science fiction television program Doctor Who. A properly maintained and piloted TARDIS can transport its occupants to any point in time and any place in the universe.” Rock solid dude!

  • Marianna: August 1, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    My whip, my hat (when not on my head) and something of equal weight to the statue to replace it (you know those trap things)

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 11:21 pm

      Those traps have driven me to the bottle of Woodford Reserve.

  • Sammi: August 1, 2012 at 8:03 pm

    a statue weighing device – that bag of sand – and rocket shoes to run faster than a boulder

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 11:23 pm

      Rocket shoes can run out of fule. Trade em in for PF Flyers “guaranteed to make a kid run faster and jump higher.”

  • Dustin S: August 1, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    1. Bag of sand and stones pre weighed.
    2. Pint of Woodford Reserve
    3. Victory Cigar.

    I would have my running boots, hat, and whips already on my person if I were Indy. Indiana Jones doesn’t lose and I wouldn’t plan on it!

    P.S. Stupid George Lucas made the story for the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Indy just had to go with it :)

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 11:31 pm

      Thank Henry the Moose of Manliness that someone finally mentioned a “Victory cigar”. A man can’t even celebrate paying his rent on time without smoking a victory cigar, let alone stealing an ancient solid gold idol. AND… Dustin, I am in 100% agreeance with you that Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was not Indy’s fault. Nor were the recent updates to the Star Wars trilogy. George, please be expecting a very scathing letter from me, Big Al.

  • Mike G: August 1, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    1. Whip- gotta have it
    2. Weighted bag- even though it didn’t work in the movie
    3. Gun

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 2:26 pm

      Yea that whole “sand in a bag” thing really didn’t turn out too well.

  • Russell Moore: August 1, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    1. The bullwhip, because you have to have the bullwhip.
    2. sand
    3. lots and lots of aspirin

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 2:25 pm

      Aspirin is perfect for an aching back or a hangover from partaking in a local tribal party.

  • ginette4: August 1, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    I would have a map to find my way out
    A gun, to defend myself from the unknown
    Rope – again for the unknown

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 2:23 pm

      How do you prepare for the “unknown” ?

  • Wendy: August 1, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    1. A gun to kill the zombies.
    2. A flame thrower.
    3. Chuck Norris.
    Oh, wait… wrong movie? :D

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 2:07 pm

      Maybe so, but all 3 answers are strong additions to this epic quest.

  • Lynn R: August 2, 2012 at 5:34 am

    the whip of course, a knife, and rope with a grappling hook attached.

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 2:05 pm

      You are going straight business Lynn.

  • s riches: August 2, 2012 at 6:44 am

    #1 The whip

    #2 Bandages

    #3 A flask of whiskey

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 1:57 pm

      I think you could be successful with #3 by itself.

  • tomato: August 2, 2012 at 9:52 am

    A gun, some duct tape, and wd-40. Those three things should be able to fix anything!

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 1:56 pm

      100% Agreed! Home Depot would get along just fine if those made up their entire inventory.

  • Harold D: August 2, 2012 at 10:22 am

    1 – My Trusty Whip
    2- Snake Repellant – I hate Snakes
    3 – A spare hate

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 1:54 pm

      I don’t know if that much hate will fit in an Antigua Leather bag.

  • Annette D: August 2, 2012 at 10:46 am

    Gun, whip and iPhone

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 1:53 pm

      Hmmm.. very creative.

  • Steve: August 2, 2012 at 10:57 am

    1. A bottle of Whistle Pig rye – seriously, do I need to say why?
    2. The Ninja Glock straight off of YouTube – everything you need in a Glock
    3. Kate Upton – again, obvious

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 1:52 pm

      This sounds like an Indiana Jones that I want to party with… and his friend.

  • Debbie C: August 2, 2012 at 12:57 pm

    1. Sand for equalizing the weight.
    2. A good leather pouch to carry the idol and keep my hands free. Antigua should do.
    3. A whip because I can’t handle a gun. Can’t handle a whip either, but it looks almost as cool as that crossbow Daryl carries on the Walking Dead.

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 1:47 pm

      Throwing out the Walking Dead reference! Bonus points

  • jeanne conner: August 2, 2012 at 2:28 pm


    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 11:08 pm

      As long as the snacks include Cherry Maple Smoked Beef Jerky from the Blue Ox Jerky Co… your cool in my book!

  • Debra F: August 2, 2012 at 2:42 pm

    a weapon to protect myself, a good pair of shoes to run in, and maybe some vodka to calm my nerves

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 11:05 pm

      Debra, I like where your heads at on this one. Especially #3

  • erma H: August 2, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    whip- for dangerous animals
    alchol- for cleaning wouds
    food- for hunger

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 10:46 pm

      alcohol – also for consumption

  • susan varney: August 2, 2012 at 4:07 pm

    invisible spray knives and magic carpert [email protected]

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 10:44 pm

      Can I pick up a few cans of this “invisible spray” at Walmart?

  • Douglas Houston: August 2, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    Whip just looks and sounds cool
    Whiskey for liquid courage
    Hat for those desert days

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 10:43 pm

      You really can’t raid an ancient temple without the badass Indy hat.

  • Matt: August 2, 2012 at 5:48 pm

    1. Counterweight bag of sand to prevent inevitable incidents of booby trappery.

    2. I was gonna say beef jerky, the only protein I see fit for regular consumption, but then I realized…I’m a MAN, a man with a supple yet paradoxically rugged looking Leather Bag! If I briefly experience a lapse in testosterone circulation and find for some reason that I need additional nourishment, I’ll chew on a strap. If I get thirsty… I’ll suck a button…MAN!

    3. Now…while sucking on a button will quench my thirst, it won’t make Mrs. Jones any prettier…and we all know that when I get home, I’m gonna wanna celebrate. Item 3: a keg of Leinenkugel Summer Shandy. (thanks for the 4th of july rec!)

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 10:43 pm

      Fantastic response Matt! “Ebert and Roeper give it two thumbs way up!” Not only did you find TWO lifesaving alternative uses for the bag, but anytime you’re crushing Leinenkugel Summer Shandy you’re setting yourself up for victory!

  • Jackee: August 2, 2012 at 6:37 pm

    Mouse trap ( he hates mice)
    Booze (multi-purpose)

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 10:37 pm

      I see we have an avid fan here! George Lucas would be proud.

  • James Nickerson: August 2, 2012 at 7:16 pm

    I would have gun for you never know, (make that a loaded gun) chewing gum (want fresh breath when I save the girl) and a cell phone with four bar service for if I get trapped with snakes anywhere I can call for help!

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 10:37 pm

      Way to set an example by putting a lady’s needs first.

  • susan smoaks: August 2, 2012 at 7:55 pm

    a knife
    a flask

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 10:36 pm

      handkerchief would come in handy especially if it is pollen season and your out of Zyrtec.

  • Richard Hicks: August 2, 2012 at 9:48 pm

    flash light

    brich22 at earthlink dot net

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 10:34 pm

      You could use the flashlight app on the iphone which frees up your 3rd choice.

  • Marty Harris: August 2, 2012 at 10:02 pm

    A whip to proctect and help me, a bag of sand to replace the golden idol, and a fifth of whiskey for couage

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 10:34 pm

      Ahh yes the irreplaceable liquid courage.

  • Jaque R.: August 2, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    1) A large jar of jalapenos…to use as a counter weight…and in case I get the urge to snack.
    2) A powerful, but compact, flashlight…to guide me in dark places.
    3) A weapon for protection.

    Thank you. :-)

    • Big Al: August 2, 2012 at 10:33 pm

      Curve ball with the jalapenos. I like it!

  • Sarah Yurga: August 3, 2012 at 1:02 am

    1. Gun – to counter any wild men with knives
    2. Snake repellant
    3. Make up kit – a girl’s gotta look good in case she runs into the real Indiana Jones

    • Big Al: August 5, 2012 at 4:45 pm

      I think you’ll be fine without the make up. For God’s sake, he fell for Karen Allen.

  • peter gladue: August 3, 2012 at 1:56 am

    1) Dad’s Journal, 2) My Whip, 3) Iphone/Ipad

    • Big Al: August 5, 2012 at 4:43 pm

      Can’t leave home without your Pop’s journal. A must have

    Lip Gloss

    Red Bull

    • Big Al: August 5, 2012 at 4:42 pm

      There is no way Indy would be the legend that he is today without his Lip Gloss…. wait….

  • Chelsea M: August 3, 2012 at 2:18 am

    I would have rope, a knife, and water – gotta stay hydrated!

    • Big Al: August 5, 2012 at 4:41 pm

      Agreed. However, I would rather hydrate with Sam Adams Octoberfest.

    If I were Indiana Jones [wishful thinking on my part] and was going to steal [procure for a museum] a golden idol from an ancient temple, the 3 things I would have in my [new stylin Made in Guatemala] Antigua Leather messenger bag are:

    1. A flute-like instrument – why? to at least try to pretend I can charm snakes because we all know ‘I HATE SNAKES’ and inevitably there are always snakes in the ancient temples I explore.

    2. A replica of the golden idol made possibly of lead – because I know if I can carry a replica in my [100% 3/16" thick full grain leather] Antigua messenger bag this far into an ancient temple, I know will be able carry the real golden idol out [plus the 4lb 1oz (1.8 kg) the Antigua bag actually weights]

    3. A piece of paper with the words “” written on it. Why? Partly because the golden idol is heavy enough to carry in my Antigua messenger bag and to give the written note to my future self in 2012, when I’ll 113 years young [born in 1899] and I’m in need of funding for my next exciting venture!

    • Big Al: August 5, 2012 at 4:40 pm

      This is in response to “Future Joseph.” Precise. Astute. Creative. Solid response brother!

  • Kristin: August 3, 2012 at 3:47 am

    I guess if I don’t say whip, it’s an automatic fail.
    I also like the thought of Indy taking some down time to chronicle his exploits in a Moleskine journal. How…Hemingway-ish.
    And, finally, I guess some sort of whiskey (although Jack Daniels is simply too cliche)…to steel his nerves before hand, to act as an antiseptic in case of injury, and to celebrate after pulling off his big caper.

    • Big Al: August 5, 2012 at 4:37 pm

      Well written response Kristin. Indeed, it was very Hemingway-ish of you.

  • nicole aben: August 3, 2012 at 5:54 am

    hmm, whip, jack daniels and a trusty reusable shopping bag so that I don’t spoil my new messenger bag with an old dirty idol! haha

    • Big Al: August 5, 2012 at 4:35 pm

      By far the most “manly’ response yet.

  • Jesse A: August 3, 2012 at 5:55 am

    I like the Jack Daniels suggestion, along with a made-in-china version of the idol to take the real one’s place. My third would of course be the whip.

    • Big Al: August 5, 2012 at 4:34 pm

      China does make a lot of cheap tacky stuff like knock off golden idols.

  • Peggy Rydzewski: August 3, 2012 at 11:06 am

    A large knife…snacks..water

    • Big Al: August 5, 2012 at 4:33 pm

      got to have the snacks

  • Sharold: August 3, 2012 at 11:18 am

    Well I would not be IJ without the Whip! Needed because it looks just so cool when it is used.
    My gun to shoot who I can Whip.
    A map, I really know where I am going but extra paper can come in handy for starting fires and other umm needs.

    samf36 ( at) gmail ( .) com

    • Big Al: August 5, 2012 at 4:33 pm

      I would suggest using the map first before burning it.

  • Buddy Garrett: August 3, 2012 at 11:29 am

    A laser gun, a bulletproof vest and Barack Obama’s private phone #. A laser gun and the vest to protect myself and the phone# in case I need to call in the calvary.

    • Big Al: August 5, 2012 at 4:32 pm

      Buddy, you the man! Just got to put ‘ole Barry on speed dial.

  • chasity spangler: August 3, 2012 at 11:50 am

    my three items would be a whip a map and a knife

    • Big Al: August 5, 2012 at 4:30 pm

    My trusty gun,
    and a bag of sand to replace the idol.

    • Big Al: August 5, 2012 at 4:29 pm

      I’m sure anywhere your going there will be plenty of sand or dirt.

  • darren c: August 3, 2012 at 12:20 pm

    Big jar on Manuka honey (ingest for dealing with ulcer surely present and energy, apply to wounds)
    Bowling Trophy (sand obviously doesn’t work)
    Worst Case Scenario book

    • Big Al: August 5, 2012 at 4:29 pm

      Nicely done Darren. Spoken like a true bowling champ!

  • Ruth M: August 3, 2012 at 1:11 pm

    My bag would have a flashlight (so I could see), rope (so I can climb out), and a knife (for protection)

    • Big Al: August 5, 2012 at 4:28 pm

      got to go with the mag light

  • Ryon H: August 3, 2012 at 1:54 pm

  • Nick: August 3, 2012 at 2:22 pm

    A phone, money, and a first aid kit

    • Big Al: August 5, 2012 at 4:26 pm

      Real men don’t use bandaids.

  • Kendra: August 3, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    • Big Al: August 4, 2012 at 2:52 am

  • Chrystal J.: August 3, 2012 at 2:50 pm

    1. The whip – because you never know what’s lurking in the shadows.
    2. A map – so I wouldn’t get lost
    3. A heavy rock – to replace the idol

    • Big Al: August 4, 2012 at 2:51 am

      tuche Chrystal

  • Mike Patillo: August 3, 2012 at 3:02 pm

      I like where your head is at !

  • jules mcnubbin: August 3, 2012 at 3:17 pm

    a gun, a whip, and some whiskey in a flask

    • Big Al: August 4, 2012 at 2:50 am

      God bless you’re flask

  • Sand: August 3, 2012 at 4:53 pm

    A whip, a rock and water.

    • Big Al: August 4, 2012 at 2:49 am

      What is the rock for?

  • Brenda Elsner: August 3, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    A whip, water, and a pistol.

    • Big Al: August 4, 2012 at 2:49 am

      very original!

  • Gianna: August 3, 2012 at 8:09 pm

    Gun, knife and bullets.. gotta survive!

    • Big Al: August 4, 2012 at 2:48 am


  • Aliya D.: August 4, 2012 at 12:43 am

    1) Pistol/hand gun, like a Glock because frankly, the whip would be strapped to my belt at all times for easy access (and because its wicked cool!).

    2) Portable Solar Charger (like one of Goal Zero’s products), so that I can always have access to power and my electronics. I have used this when I volunteer overseas in various refugee camps.

    3) My iPhone. I would have access to everything (including directions, Google for info and in an emergency get the government to get me out of a bad situation).


    • Big Al: August 4, 2012 at 2:46 am

      A well thought out response indeed.

  • Mike: August 4, 2012 at 2:37 am


    • Big Al: August 4, 2012 at 2:45 am

      Blowing it up!

  • Bobby: August 6, 2012 at 8:04 pm

    A whip, to get myself out of the temple.
    Some anitvenom, because I don’t trust the airplane pilot’s snake.
    A fresh pair of underwear. Do I have to explain why?
