How to Avoid Thirst When Lost in the Desertfrom: Maxx Adventure Travel
Unless you're a gypsy or a nomad with a lifetime of experience living in the desert without getting lost, it's likely you'd have a diffcult time surviving in the desert, especially if you really got lost and ran out of water or any other liquid to quench your thirst.
This is an extreme situation and the main worry is to keep yourself hydrated enough to survive and find your way back.
Here's some advice on how survive if you get lost in the desert:
1: Don't Be Deceived by What You See: In the desert, distances can be very deceptive. One tip is to multiply by four whatever distance estimation you arrive at when determining with your naked eye. How does this relate to avoiding thirst? If you get a grip on reality in terms of the distance you must travel, it will give you a better idea how much water you're going to have to take with you.
2: Don't Bring Dry Food: If you're trekking through the desert and your about to run out of water, it's actually recommended that you don't eat. If you must, don't eat food that's too dry as it will likely dehydrate you even more, especially salty food. Another bad move is to drink alcohol or caffeinated drinks if you want to get out of the desert alive.
3: Travel Light: Remember, you will consume more energy if you're carrying a heavier load. So avoid breaking the heavy load if you want to avoid attracting a flock of vultures.
4: Avoid Stressful Activities and Don't Panic: Running will lead to you to unnecessarily sweating more. You must conserve the liquid in your body to avoid finishing up your water supply to fast and thus not have enough to find your way back home.
5: Breathe Through Your Nose to Conserve Water: No, your mouth doesn't contain a ball of fire, but it will prevent your body from losing water if you keep your mouth shut.
6: Drink only a Sip of Water: even if you crave much more. A sip is just enough for your body's needs.
So keep this advice in mind when trekking through a desert area. Just remeber that now you only have worry about other dangers in the desert such as poisonous snake and insect bites, quicksand, thunderheads, hypothermia and that list goes on and on. Ö
