    I would find some wood to bang on, then make a wooden pickaxe, dig deep until I find cobblestone, then make a cobblestone pickaxe, look for an underground mine so I can find spider web, make a fishing pole, fish, strip mine for iron :)

    Just a few miles from his supposed route he made is a whole river like 50meters wide and some damming or something like that which is hard for me to believe that he missed everything of this. However he even got a compass, so the way he went missing is soooo extremely stupid I can't even... Sore heat and sand and shit, but comeon, even without a compass you see where the sun goes down and you can orient yourself more or less and in case you go in such a dangerous place, just know the directions a bit... He was completely going in almost the worst direction ever he could choose from... I understand how different it is to think about this sitting before a computer at home, and just how different is it when you are there, but still this story is just about a really stupid man. However he instantly got the "rewards" for his stupidity, I guess this is karma at it's best.

    Epic endurance, but I'm puzzled why he went so far off course. He had been running northeast, so the sun was on his right. When he ran off course, he went southwest, so the sun was on his left. Didn't he notice ? Also, a compass would have been helpful. Nowadays they would have GPS with them I hope...
