What 5 items do you bring with you to this isolated island?

For one reason or another, you have been sentenced to 3 years on pic related. A boat comes by once a month to deliver food, water and other essentials. The house generates enough solar and wind energy to power a few devices all day. There is no internet. Satellite internet is not possible.
You can bring 5 items with you. You must gather them in 72 hours. You are given a blank check to buy them. Peripherals like monitors, power sources like charging bricks, mass storage devices, software, consumable things like screws/solder/3D printer filament/replacement computer parts/etc don't count towards the 5 items as the monthly boat will bring them. What do you bring to get you through 3 years alone?

      Fridge included. the house has enough to sustain you.

      [...]
      the boat will switch out hookers for you if they get too b***hy. women are consumables after all.

      [...]

        Someone on IQfy uploaded 8gb of books a while ago so that, and stuff I already have downloaded. I read a lot already, I'm in no danger of running out of books.
        If there's already a fridge then I'll bring a big telescope instead.

      Your cows are going to starve, there isn't enough feed and I bet the grass on that island lacks the proper nutrients.

        they literally just need grass

        but lets just assume that if the supply boat can supply "consumable things" then it can bring some hay

          Anon that island is a ROCK. Even from this aerial photo it's clear that the foliage is extremely sparse and it could even be mostly moss tbh.

            no, the island is covered in lush green grash as well as shrubbery
            its also 111 acres so even by a conservative estimate its plenty enough for 20 cows
            its literally the ideal environment for grazing animals, and irl its used for grazing sheep:
            https://www.polarsteps.com/Boyvsglobe/3599041-island/27408751-ellidaey-the-loneliest-house-in-the-world

            also consider that you need a place to house the cows, like a barn. the boat will bring the wood and nails to build a small barn to house the 2 animals you brought, but they won't build it for you. and consider the effect of the cows on the local environment. what if they get sick? once a month a vet can attend to the cows, but he comes and leaves with the boat. maybe you should bring some veterinary books, the boat will provide medicine if you desire it.

            since the island is used to graze sheep, I assume theres a barn somewhere already, I noticed that the irl island has more buildings than just the house, but for the sake of this thought experiment I would be perfectly fine with constructing a small barn, Ive done similar projects before
            I should be fine on the veterinary front especially if I have the necessary pdfs on my PC but I will have already read up on a lot of it to prepare
            I know a decent amount about medicine already anyway, I basically just need aspirin and antibiotics and those will fix 99% of illnesses

            oh wow its larger and greener than I thought. the weather might be your biggest enemy. What if a storm hits and the cows are scattered around the island? thats why I chose to bring a shepherding dog with me.

    After reading all your posts, I would bring.
    >my GF
    >German shepherd puppy
    >Pregnant female sheep
    >The most expensive Dell rugged laptop available
    >OLED Steam deck
    I would download all of libgen/project gutenberg onto a series of external SSD's. As well as the entire catalogues of the NES, SNES, GB/GBC/GBA, and as 50 games each from the NDS, Gamecube, PS2, and PS3 and the required emulators to run them (on Linux of course. As well as Windows 7 and 10 iso's, and Linux Mint and Ubuntu iso's. And basically every movie/show/anime I can think of. And a Chess bot with a library of thousands of games and the books from libgen. I do have only 72 hours to do all of this after all. And since the boat provides peripherals, I will ask for 2 monitors, a keyboard, mouse, and the cables to connect them all together/power them for my laptop.
    And I'd get Mr. Beast and some other e-celebs to sponsor me so I can write a book and sell merch once my 3 years are over. I'd immedietely get to reading everything I can on animal husbandry and veterinary practices from libgen. As well as practice my Chess so maybe when I get out I can win a title from FIDE.
    I think I'd be quite happy all in all.

    1. Laptop that can run all my SP games + external hdd for movies and tv
    2. eReader (My Kindle) with all sorts of fiction and non fiction books. Would love to read through all the Dune books.
    3. Bait & Tackle box (Foldable fishing pole included). Plenty of place on that island for some good ole fishing listening to an audiobook or maybe reading until I get a wiggle.
    4. Big telescope. Being stuck on a deserted island far from civilization means that I'll be able to see the night sky in all its glory free of the light pollution from nearby cities.
    5. HAM radio, if anything there's a chance I can get to talk to people other than the ones that bring my food. Just so I don't go insane.
