    Default 5 Minutes or less-3 Items Max-What do you take?

    Yesterday we had a wildfire come within 1 mile of our house. Had it came within 1/3 of a mile, we would have been told to evacuate.

    Got me thinking.

    Obviously with a 5 minute warning most people would grab their family and pets.

    Now you can only grab 3 of your Stephen King items.

    What 3 items do you take?


    BTW, Each "The Plant" counts as 1 item.

    Feel free to elaborate the reasons for your choices.

    Wow... if carrying is not a factor. And I am only grabbing King items...

    1) Whelan orginal - ROLAND
    2) Ned Dameron - PLASTER MAN
    3) My IT original cover artwork

    EDIT: I would grab the art... as I could NOT replace those pieces... BUT I can the books... for instance love my Lettered IT... but there are 51 other letters I can have. So the art for sure.

    This is a tough choice and I'm bound to rethink it and change my mind in the next five minutes, but off the top of my head: DTIII, It, and the talisman. Waste Lands is one of my favorites, and IT is the second SK book I ever read and it left a deep mark on the easily impressionable 12 year old that I was. As for the talisman, it's just got this magic to it that I can't shake (and it was while putting my music on shuffle while reading it that made me discover my favorite band, which I now have a tattoo of).

    (I was right about rethinking my answers, I originally put down The Stand and as I was writing my reasoning I changed my mind for the talisman).

    EDIT: This seems to be more about collectibles, my bad!! While I have a hearty number of SK books in different editions I don't have anything considered a "collectible" I think.

    That's what makes it fun.

    I still don't know the answer for myself. I thought about it last night and wanted to stay and use a hose to fight the fire.
    If my collection burns, I go with it. Then it won't matter (to me).

    In fact, I think I find it a lot easier to decide what other people should take with them instead of what I'd take myself!

    I think that is a cool idea.

    Funny, I didn't even think of that until you mentioned it.
    That's why 5 minutes makes it tough. A person would understandably be frantic.
