Could you survive in the desert?

Last night we were watching a movie about two people that got stranded in the dessert. They ended up walking for days through scorching barren terrain. And, I was wondering the entire time, why they didn't simply wait until night time to travel. From what I've heard, it's much colder in the desert at night. Of course you'd have to deal with the critters and animals in the desert. But, it's not as if lions live in the desert, unless you're in Africa. And, most lizards can't kill you. So, I think I might have a small chance of surviving in the dessert. But, at least a slim chance is better than none. What do you think? Chances are, I'd run out of water (assuming I had any) before any major rescue attempt could occur. But, I would certainly go down fighting every inch of the way. What about you? Do you think you would survive if you got stranded in the desert?

I don't think that I would survive travelling in a desert as desert is scary to me. I would never dare to think about getting to the edge of it with the temperatures varying from daytime to night time so differently. And it is so hard to walk on it.

I don't think that I can survive in that kind of situation. In the dessert for every inch of our movement will be entailed by many creatures. The tranquil environment make one little sound create great frequency. At night, of course there are lot predators and carnivorous kind of animals. Our scent will create great tense of smell for them, especially wind or breeze as a carrier factor to it. I don't think that I can live in that kind of situation and hopes none to happen in the rest of my life. May God Bess.
