I watched a few of the survivor showed on TV and often think that would really be cool to be part of.

We are all Survivor on a different team and God bless each and everyone one of us here today.

But I can’t help but dream, so here is my question?

If you could be part of the Survivor TV Show, Where would you like to go to be a survivor and what would you do?

Have some fun

Hawaii has my vote...I lived there for a few years, loved it.

Though I spent time in Panama and that was pretty cool also.

doing the show. 10 years ago I seriously thought about making an audition tape to get on Survivor. Both of my boys had major protests about me being away for so long I never did it. I remember my oldest asking, at the time, who would get him ready for school in the morning if I was on Survivor? Made me realize I was needed at home with my kids more than I needed to be on a TV show where I might have to eat worms.

Location: Hmmmm: somewhere warm and sunny, no humidity, cool enough at night to sleep, and no mosquitos. Does such a place exist???

Not me man. Don't need the stress. If I'm going somewhere tropical I want drinks with little umbrellas, a cabana boy and white glove table service. :)

I would go to Bora Bora and try to repay my wife for all the support she gave me. The drinks with little umbrellas sound great too. LOL

That is great, we forget sometimes our caregivers, I am sending my wife caregiver home for her Mothers birthday that is what she wants. Now she is afraid of leaving me for a few weeks, I told her I am a big boy now and plus my 32 year old daughter who thinks she is my Mother will take very good care of me while you are gone.

I was just talking to my wife tonight about this as I drew her a bath and poured her a glass of wine and almost shorted out her Kindle.

The Caregiver can sometimes be left out or kept behind the scenes. (human nature I guess)My wife was telling me she does not quite know where she fits in at the moment. her kids are both away at school and doing fine on their own. The only time they need her is when they need $$$$'s. She says she does not feel like much of wife or a partner to me because I am too sick to do anything, and I mean anything!! My wife is a nurse by trade which means I have an advantage to receiving some types of care at home which I am sure other survivors do not. The down side to this is she is in charge of the Trauma Program at a very busy Level 1 Trauma Center and spends her working time involved directly with death every day, and not to mention all of the kids she sees every day who are so sick from Cancer.

I surprised her last Saturday with a complete day spa package so she could feel like she had some "me time." One might this week I plan to send her and one of her close girl friends out to one of the best resturants in St. Louis, so she can have a little "me time" and reconnect with a friend.

I am amazed at the amount of time she spends with me, and the level of care she gives, even if it is just bringing me a glass of water. She makes my care all about me and only me. The amazing thing about the caregiver is one does not have to have advanced medical training to be of value. At the end of the day for me, it is all of the little things she brings to the table.

I have read allot of posts where the caregiver goes way above and beyond the call of duty.

Before we all try, and I man try to go to bed tonight, tell your caregiver thank you and you love them.

Best!!

Mike

Beautiful port about your caregiver Mike. My Wife and caregiver has been at my side through all my treatments day & night for over 9 years now and have never left my side. She wants to go to see her Mother for her 90 birthday next month, so I got her the ticket and now she don’t want to go because she feels she needs to be with me. I told her don’t worry I will be OK plus my oldest daughter is worse then a Mother for making sure I am ok. Looks like the only way I will get her to go is to go with her, we will see

God bless all you who are Caregivers

As close as you can get (at least as for the places that I've been)...no snakes either.

I've never been to Aruba but some of my friends have and they said it was heaven!!! Soft tropical breezes and plenty of sun. After 2 days of non stop rain I could go for any place that has sun ;-)

The only competition I would get involved with is the casinos - lol.

I also like Sweet's idea of drinks with umbrellas and cabana boys!!

As you know I am an Island boy, and I love the Island life. My plan is if I ever get over the C to go back and live the rest of my life there. I remember fishing all day long sometimes just to have a few bucks to spend at the dance hall that night, all I can say the good old times.

Hondo,

Nice post on what we would like to try. Years ago, I thought about it, but was busy with my own business and BC ( before cancer ). I figured that I could handle most of what the shows had done so far. As long as no one was shooting at me : ) I'd be fine.

The one contestant that had always been on the top of my list was the old Navy Seal, Rudy. When ever anyone gets a chance to read up on him, he is truely a Hero. Went into the Navy at the age of 15 during WW II, he was big for his age. Decided to go for the underwater demolition teams and passed, amazing. That was before the SEALS, known as Frogmen.

Ah, to dream of the things we wanted to try in life. Oh, I won't jump out of a normally good operating plane. For now, I will have to settle for battling the bugs in our back yard : ).

My Best to Everyone Here

I remember reading a story about the guy, he was Amazing

Believe it or not my Son and I are planning to do some skydiving; we are just trying to find a plane to hold 20 men. It will be a great feeling I believe to just fly. It will be Him and me and 18 others that it will take to throw me out of the plane, but it is in the planes for the future

Hondo,

I hope that you and your son have a great time when you do go and jump out of a perfectly good operating plane. No Sir, no my cup of tea thank you. Next, you'll be telling me that you bought one of those special flying squirrel suits, jumped out of a plane and flew close to the mountain tops at 120 mph. : )

I'll keep my feet planted firmly on the ground thanks. Now, if you happen to know someone with a spare plane ticket to New Zealand or Ireland, I'm there : )

My Best to You and Everyone Here

I love to be outdoors and all that, but the first big ugly spider that I saw I would vote myself off.

I think all of you guys are 100 times more of a survivor then those people on TV.

Go to Alaska find the nearest fine restaurant with an incredible view , taste the food, swallow without the help of liquid, have a alcohol beverage without it burning the throat.

Really though, without the show life is good, God is great!

I don't know where it is, but the place Kim mentioned sounds great to me. I'm sure it exists somewhere.

I know just the tropical paradise you are dreaming of, it would really be nice to spend a few weeks there.

So ready for that tropical paradise right now! I gotta figure out how to get myself a pampered spa weekend at the very least. I don't like to go places by myself, but maybe I might have to grow up and do it. :)

I know the feeling; I don’t like even going out to eat by myself, just hate being alone. The wife now calls me just about every day at work to see what I am doing for lunch just to make sure I am eating. I guess we need to brake out of the box, just no fun all by your self.

I'm used to eating out by myself, and going out by myself, but I don't want to travel alone. I love it when I go out to eat and they ask. "How many?". And I say, "one". Then they give you that aw, I'm sorry you're pathetic look and stick you in the tiny table in the corner that rocks cause it's not level.

I've spent the last 20 years backpacking and river rafting this amazing place. When people ask me where I'm from I tell them "Grand Canyon". I really consider it home. My heart stays there while I'm out of it doing what must be done. It would be such a great place for Survivor. It's almost time to go back now.

I'd want to be somewhere with a mild climate, eating vegetarian, I guess - the first spider dinner they whipped out would have me packing. I'd like the idea of figuring out how to make a shelter, but would not want to eat squirmy, scary things.

Hi all,
Hawaii gets my vote every time. As a second location, Tahiti would work too. Oh yes, NO SPIDERS...
Peaceful healing...
