I mean no disrespect for the couple that died - though I must confess confusion as to why they would have done such a thing - but 15Bit is correct. I live deep in the Sonoran Desert. It does top 115ºF. One can literally be 50 miles from water. Saguaros provide no shade.
To enter and pass thru life without being aware that we live on an awesome but deadly planet is a truly sad form of ignorance. Every vehicle I've ever owned has always carried fundamental tools, minimalist shelter, heat/cold protection, the ability to signal and to start a fire, water, and at least a week's worth of dried/preserved food. Yes in many case it has been c-rations finally upgraded to MRE.
Truth is that I don't believe that automobiles will really keep working and I don't want to end up anywhere without at least an edge to aid in survival. And yes, as nice as a GPS is maps are still invaluable.
I go out into this desert at least weekly, but I never do so without all of the above. If I'm walking I always take water, a protein bar or two, a good hat, and good boots. If the weight is too much I leave equipment behind, not water.
15Bit is so correct. So much of those in or from Western European cultures no longer know life while utterly beautiful is also completely deadly.
