    Re: DESERT SURVIVAL TIPS

    I used to chew on the beans when I was younger.
    The dentist and my parents made me quit ... the sugar was ruining my teeth.
    I figured out that the best ones were the real ripe but not quite hard ones. They would quite often have drops of sap coming off of them ... very sweet. We would have to compete with the bees and wasps for them.

    If you want a real treat try mesquite honey.

    Cool information. I'm familiar with the plants except for the jojoba. I haven't been around agave, but yucca is similar.

    Survival tips are always good to know, but proper preparation may prevent the need for a survival scenario. Many years ago when I was in Search and Rescue, we recovered the bodies of a couple who simply took a joy ride, got stuck, then caught in a snow storm. They were a couple of hundred miles away from their home and had not told anyone where they were going. It was Springtime before they were found. It was a completely preventable tragedy. Whole books can and have been written on the topic.

    I keep a Spot tracker with me when I travel. Any of the personal locating beacons could prevent unnecessary deaths. Unfortunately the most likely victim isn't someone like us who are experienced in the outdoors, but rather it's the person who spontaneously decides to head out "exploring".
