You're fed up with life. Nothing seems to fit. You want out, to go back to a simpler life.

How does a one-way exile through a time portal to six million years in the past sound? :mis:

The Saga of The Exiles, by Julian May is, without a doubt, my favourite book (s). In this 4-book series, misfits from the 22nd century can choose to enter a one-way fixed time portal that exits on Earth's Rhone Valley to six million years ago. They are allowed to carry limited personal gear in addition to their standard survival equipment, and the choices of those who make the journey vary wildly; from liquor chocolates to farmsteading items, from whole libraries or books and music to Tarzan outfits (seriously; read it if you don't believe me ;)).

So if you were contemplating a new life in Pliocene Europe, what would you take with you?

I'd take a typewriter, lots and lots of non-biodegradable paper, and a "How To Train Monkeys" handbook.
