I’ve lived out in the middle of nowhere (Courage the Cowardly Dog was my only neighbor) and let me tell you, you’re pretty much screwed if you get injured. Your options are drive 60 miles to the hospital while bleeding to death or take your chances get stitched up by the closest “doctor” in the area (who happens to be Courage’s vet). I imagine that your chances are even worse out in the desert because there’s no way an ambulance is going to make it through sand dunes. Unless of course the ambulance was camel driven. Design student Frederic Schwab designed a camel driving cart that can seat a doctor and carry medical supplies through the desert.
