Survival Guide to the Mojave Desert

This could be the difference between life and death!

PLANE CRASH!!!!!!!!!!!!

If your plane crashes in the middle of the Mojave desert in Nevada, what will you do? Run around screaming like a maniac? NO. Build a sand castle to live in? NO. With this survival guide, I will teach you, well, how to survive. In the harsh environment on the Mojave desert, it can be hard to live in the sweltering heat and freezing cold because the temperatures range from 8 degrees F at night and 119 degrees F in the day. You can also run into dangerous animals and poisonous plants. Even though the Mojave is temperate, there are few species of vegetation and a scarce amount of water. There are some small rocky mountains and nothing to lead you in the right direction. Follow this guide if you want to survive the... DUN! DUN! DUN! Mojave Desert.

Steps to Survive

  1. Once you get to the desert, be sure to search for water. You can dehydrate in a couple of days.

  2. Be sure to dress in layers for the day is extremely hot and nights are extremely cold.

  3. Find something sharp to hunt with so that you don’t starve.

  4. Find a way to attract a plane or some type of rescue vehicle by making a large fire, or using bright colors. You can use some of the resources from the plane to stay alive.

Animals: Friendly and not so friendly
