This is actually one of the things my friend listed as a benefit. In the summer it holds the sweat and acts like a evaporative cooler for your face.

comment Would a tampon be a good addition to a survival kit
It's a good point, but I'm not sure that much in my survival kits has only one use.

comment Practicality of Beards
@LBell the question of "Should I wear a Beard?" Is far to personal, but I thought "What should I consider when making this decision?" would be perfect for the site.

comment How can you navigate without a compass or GPS
In the desert there usually no prominent features around you (like your caveat mentions), and everything withing a few miles looks exactly the same. How you navigate is watch the mountains that are 30 to 60 miles off. Before you start stand facing your car (or the road) and take notice of how far you have to turn or twist your neck to look or arms to point at the mountains. If you continue to update that as you hike, you can always find your way back. Note, this wouldn't work in the Dunes, but nothing works there.

comment Tent and sleeping bag: pack inside or strap outside a backpack?
In the South West USA I often use my EXTERNAL frame pack and then there is little choice. Outside, but I can keep it close to my center of gravity and balance the pack perfectly.
