Venturing too far and too long into the desert during midday after the Desert Killer has returned is something I know better than to do, and yet I did it...again.
I offer strict guidelines in my books, blog and videos about staying safe while hiking alone in the desert, especially as temperatures begin to rise with the approach of summer. Nevertheless, I still fall prey to my own folly when curiosity or mild delirium lead me to wander from shelter farther than I should, all the while ignoring the little voice inside telling me to turn back. Fortunately, this doesn't happen often, and it's been more than three decades since I last made that near fatal mistake. Hopefully, I'll never make such an error again. #GoingAlone

Be safe... But not too safe.
