Geocache Island

Followers 1

Recommended Posts

You are stranded on Geocache Island.

You will be rescued someday.

For all intents and purposes, there are an unlimited number of caches.

The island is abundant with food and fresh water.

You are packing the new Gargellian 420 which is not only fully solar powered but also has an integrated MP3 player.

Prior to your arrival the island was inhabited by "The Professor".

Using coconut shells and palm fronds, he constructed a primitive Internet connection.

Unfortunately, coconut shells and palm fronds yield a very limited bandwidth and duration.

You may download only three songs.


Which three songs would you download ?

  • I Don't Wanna Talk About Love by Nanci Griffith
  • All Souls Night by Loreena McKennit
  • Kagami no Dress (The Dressing Mirror) by Noriko Sakai

Oh, and I'd learn to out-of-body travel during my obviously peaceful, tropical, desert island nights and get a message to someone by faking a haunting in my apartment, driving my roommate mad with inane telepathic punnery, and sending random images of the island to John Edward during one of his busier tapings of Crossing Over. ;)B) ...oh, and did I mention not wanting to get back to 'civilization' altogether too quickly? B)


Warm regards from Your Friendly Neighborhood desert-island-living-out-of-body-geofishe...

Desert Island MP3s. New spin on an old concept.


I would DL any 3 songs by Metallica. Their lawyers would promptly show up and arrest me. Thus, facilitating my rescue.


Otherwise I would use the bandwidth to log my caches. The numbers are more important than being rescued. B)

What a great GPS tie-in to prevent the locking down of the thread for not being geocaching related.


Simply put: What are your three favorite deserted island songs?


To avoid lock down: Uh, yeah...waypoints...something something...MP3 GPSr...something...caches.


Crazy what ya have to go through on here to ask a simple question. (laughs)


My three songs?

Don't need them. Can't hear them over the voices in my head once my medication runs out.

We Have a Map of the Piano, by Múm

Learning to Fly, Pink Floyd

Million Pieces, by The Newsboys


Tough choices! I've already changed my mind (and one choice) once, but I think these are some pretty good tunes.


Hey Idratherbehiking, I got to see Jeremy Camp (and Rebecca St. James and The Newsboys) on the Adoration Tour in February. What an awesome experience! If you get the chance to go, I highly recommend it.


Paula :lol:

I think I would post myself as a cache only to be tourned down by the approver because they are convinced that no one could possibly live there so there would be no one to maintain the cache. Besides we all know that vacation caches are not allowed.

Thos all are good songs, but I would preferr The Other Side of the Radio- by Chris Rice or Extreme Days- by Toby Mac


I never would have thought this many people listen to the same music I do. Almost no one does in my town. That's pretty kewl!!

"Radar Love" by Golden Earring

"Midnight At The Oasis" by Maria Muldaur

"Hot Rod Lincoln" by Commander Cody And His Lost Planet Airmen


Each of the above was chosen because they represent some the classic One-Hit Wonders. Songs we all know, but can't think of anything else by the same artist.

Counting Crows: Mrs. Potter's Lullaby

U2: Angel of Harlem

Bob Marley: Redemption Song


(Man, there's some stuff that's killing me, though. Duke Ellington, with Ella on the vocals. Stevie Wonder. Jimmy Buffett. Sarah McLachlan. John Mayer. Prince... Ah, well. rules is rules. <_<)
