Being experienced just doesn't mean knowing where you are! You should always have plenty of water, gatorade, a blanket, snacks, medication, etc. When I leave the house even just to the supermarket here, I have a bottle of water and a frozen bottle of water. You never know if you are going to break down or might need to give someone who is broke down some water! When my husband and I leave on day trips, we always have all of the above because you never know if you will get stranded! Always be prepared, that is experience at it's best!

very true, when we go out, we have at least a couple bottles of water. people move here and think this is like "back home". i am sure this guy was experianced in some sort of hiking, however it looks like he was un prepared for this trip out in the desert. there are bugs, snakes, scorpions out here, and they can kill ya. so folks this is not back home, be carefull hiking in the desert
