The problem began by passing without noticing the sign on the left. It was almost midnight and too dark. Regardless, it is surprising that we three all missed the sign and went down into the desert. We first thought that it would be a shortcut and kept driving for more than an hour. At last, we reached a point where no radio signal exists, cell phones don’t work, no people, no cars, no buildings, only the road and the desert.
We didn’t even know if we were going to the right direction, and there seemed to be no way to check. All of a sudden, Caleb suggested to look at stars and we found Polaris. (After many days, it turned out not to be Polaris though.) We concluded that we were directing south and turned around.
