Time travel is easy.

I once discovered a device that allowed me to travel through space and time outside my house. Then someone told me it was a car.
Seriously, though. It would seem that the simplest way to get a time machine would be to bury a message in a mason jar or somesuch near a place of future archeological interest. The message should read “To whoever gets this jar, please send a time machine to [insert time / position here].” and then just stand around with the shovel at the ready. If you were successful, you should know within seconds, can dispatch the traveler BoFH style, and scamper off with your young female companion who will ask “But Doctor, where are we going now?”
Any time-machine that doesn’t involve a paradox in its construction or acquisition is just a clock.
