Overview


Anyone venturing into the desert, either by crossing on foot, vehicle, or in an aircraft (other than a commercial flight) should be prepared. Desert regions are those least likely to have an easily available source of water. Nevertheless, the survivor must find a water supply or they will die. No matter how abundant the rest of your survival resources are, without water your time is limited.

To travel or stay put is one of the great dilemmas any survivor must face. The factors governing any decision should be based on where you are, your chances of survival if you stay put, where you intend moving to and the related hazards in getting there. Without communications it is difficult to assess whether there will be a rescue attempt, and even if there is, it would be presumptive to believe that they will locate you. Additionally, having the physical and mental ability, plus the resources to travel and reach a given point accurately is also a major factor.

The SAS Guide to Desert Survival prepares the traveler for any situation they may find themselves in while venturing across desert and arid areas. It will explain the need for an immediate plan, as time will be against you, as well as how to dress for the ultimate protection from the sun and the cold (yes, deserts get very cold at night). The book will show you how and when to travel, as well as how to navigate a route to safety. The desert has two main advantages: the sun and the general clearness of visibility; a simple heliograph will flash a signal to both ground and air rescue services up to twenty-five miles away.

I bought this book a few years ago along with others in the SAS survival series. As a desert survival book it's merely OK. The SAS book has the usual optimistic advice on solar stills, along with some curious advice such as drinking sap from birch trees (in the desert??). The section on navigation isn't detailed enough to be of any real use (nor does it contain much on GPS). The advice on desert hazards like sandstorms, snakes, etc. is too little and too generalized. There is also a lot of rehashed material on snares, traps and fishing, little of it applicable to most desert survival situations. By contrast there's only about nine pages on finding and carrying enough water. I think there are better desert survival books out there.

Me: Bon X rin on the way! Enjoy!!<p> Rins POV<p> Suguro and I used to date, he che<_>ated on me with a girl, begged me to take him back which I did, and dumped me over text after my brothers funeral. Great guy, like, really. I stopped hearing the dark chuckling and growls. I take the koma sword and get ready to open it. Kuro jumped off my shoulder and transformed into his high level demon form. Suguro was saying mantras d sutras behind me. Useless.<p> "Suguro, go get Shura and the others... now," I said.<p> "I wont leave you alone-" I cut him off.<p> "You have left me alone plenty of times and for a long while, what makes this any different?" I asked coldly.<p> He had a weird look pass through his face but it was gone. He nodded and took off. I drew my katana and my blue flames covered my body.<p> //*why fight us young prince?*// one demon asked.<p> //*you have no one to keep you here in Ashia.*// another demon said.<p> //*come rule with your father, in Gahenna, where you belong.*// the third demon coaxed.<p> "Sorry to bust you bubble, but I have no desire to go to Gahenna," I sneered.<p> The demons attacked. Kuro held his own and kept trying to protect me. I told him to worry about himself. I was taking on two demons at once. I ki<_>lled one. I saw large amounts of blood and thought it was the other demon.<p> /*RIN NOOO!*/ Kuro gasped.<p> Kuro ki<_>lled the demon he was fighting as my vision blurred. Cr<_>ap... the blood was coming from me. The last demon fleed, ripping it's craws from my neck, and I dropped like a bag of rocks. I heard peoples voices and then Suguro's face.<p> "Dont di<_>e on me Okumura!!" He sounded so far away, "dont leave me!"<p> I forced the words to come, "thats not..... how it... works."<p> "What do you mean by 'thats not how it works'!?"<p> "You... left me... after my brother.... di<_>ed... and che<_>ated on me... with no explaination..." I gasped out.<p> "Dont di<_>e on me!!" He said totally ignoring my words.<p> I guess the world likes to tort<_>ure me. I thoufht Suguro had actually loved me... and maybe he did. He must hate me too, like my brother and dad and everyone else.<p> "Do you... hate me....?" I asked weakly passing out.<p> End<p> Rin: why do i always di<_>e?<p> Me: because everyone loves you....<p> Rin: that doesnt make sense!<p> Me: hush Rin. How was it? Did it me you cry?
