Desert Island Pen

I was asked by @dancoopermedia on Twitter the other day for a pen recommendation, specifically, if I could have only one retractable pen, what would it be?  I didn't have to think very long before mentioning that I would pick the Pilot G-2 0.38mm and be a happy camper.  The pen writes great, is durable, and very affordable.  If I need to get something done and need a pen that I know isn't going to give be any trouble, the G-2 0.38mm is the pen I grab.

So that got me thinking on a broader scale - if I could choose just one pen to take with me on a desert island, what would it be?  I have been hard pressed to come up with an answer other than the aforementioned G-2.  I love plastic tip pens like the Sharpie Pen, but I don't think it would wear well.  Same with fountain pens - too high maintenance for me, but I know many of you can't live without your favorite fountain pen.  My favorite Uni-Ball Signo DX would be a good choice, but there is just something about the G-2 that says "MacGyver".

So what will it be?  What is your desert island pen?
