@Sherm: This is like herding cats. Maybe you should just say anyone who can't follow the rules with their first post automatically gets assigned CB Grape and a poorly drilled Peterson on an island with no coconuts.

I'm selecting my Rick Black Morta beefy rhodesian. Great dimensions, easy to pocket and smokes well for any blend I've tried.
Glad that chest is well stocked, because it seems I've come across the last surviving batch of Frog Morton On The Town...and it's mine, mine, all mine...

Brian64 - So if I understand your thinking... that would make them all have to share the same small 6 foot diameter deserted island, and the only thing to smoke would be endless amounts of CB Grape, smoked out of ONE poorly-drilled Peterson - which they would have to somehow share and rotate with an old conch shell - AND they would also have to "share and rotate" amongst themselves, the only girl on the island: Mrs. Howell. LOL!
Nowhere I'd want to be... sounds like a fitting fate, I would say. - Sherm Natman

I think I'd go with my Savinelli Pipa because it was my first "expensive" pipe and has sentimental value. I would carve a little face in it, and talk to it. I'd probably open the chest and there would be endless Frog Morton. I think I could smoke that every day and not get tired of it.
Would I eventually find a hatch on the island, and would I need to be concerned with the island's electromagnetic properties?

@Sherm: lol, That's actually much worse than I was imagining...sounds like it must be the same hell you mentioned Rickles was stuck in. No wonder they're heckling him.

JohnBrody15 - Mr. Rod Serling found your idea of carving a face into your pipe highly imaginative, resourceful, and quite in keeping with the wonders found in The Twilight Zone; therefore, he has asked me to inform you, that yes, the face which you carved into your pipe does indeed become animated, and, will, besides keeping you company during your stay on your island, provide you alternately with learned guidance, entertaining stories, wise and sympathetic counsel, or off-color puns; as it suits your needs.
The only caveat is that this only occurs when you have smoked far too much Frog Morton in one session... but hey, you have an endless supply which can never run out, and all the time in the world to try to smoke it up - Sherm Natman
Brian64 - Yes, I suppose it; and it is even worse for poor old Don Rickles, as he never knew the joy of smoking a pipe. - Sherm Natman

I'd probably take a Missouri Meerschaum cob (one of the Washington models in a year where the corncobs were big and thick) and Lane Ready Rubbed. I select this combo because its an easy-going smoke, and you smoke the heck out of corncobs for quite a while before they go sour.
HOWEVER, if I was stranded indefinitely for a period exceeding a month or more, I'd probably take my rusticated Savinelli with the tall bowl and Capstan Blue, for a more durable pipe and a more complex tobacco, though smoked less frequently due to the briar pipe rather than a cob.

@lawdawg - thats definitely my workshop combo for putzing around the garage (RR and a cob)!
Same here! Putzing around my workshop, fishing, canoeing, sitting on the patio in the summer around the fire and having drinks, or whenever I just want a good lazy low-effort smoke.

@shermnatman, so it is possible that my talking pipe would be wise enough to direct me in how to make a boat from coconuts and bamboo? Although if this were the Twilight Zone there would need to be some serious irony somewhere.

The irony comes into play that it was the significant other sending you on the trip to make you miserable. Turns out, that without them, you're sublimely happy on the island alone with your pipe and tobacco. :mrgreen:
