    well, when you realize that you are lost, the first thing to do is to to mark the place you are and make sure you'll be able to get back to it, that is the first place you know you are lost and probably the closest one to the next place you won't be lost anymore, so make sure to identify it and use it as the center of your search perimeter.
    the worst thing to do would be to start wandering and adding unknown location to unknown locations, then deepening yourself into confusion.
    then you may decide to explore in concentric circles around this center or launch strait forward and back to center explorations in successive directions, always clearly mark what you have done and where you have been, else you would be confused and duplicate searches,
    draw your own map of this territory and systematically search it
    your best friend would be your brain, not your legs

    With the efficiency of Leds these days it would be very easy to install a strobe led on top of a pole/antenna.
    This would use next to no power and be visible for miles, {night time}. Today you really have no excuse for being lost EPIRB etc
    are very affordable, satelite phones, VHF, UHF, even upper /lower side band CB 27mhtz, Take plenty of water tarp for shade , stay put
    04 ST 3lt auto, not enough Mods to keep me happy, but getting there

    Last night 3 french tourists broke down 8kms down the gun barrel whe the motor died. Had no supplies, cb, sat phone etc only a mobile. They had to wait until this morning to be recovered.


    Really pays to make sure you have yourself kitted out.

    Was thinking about that only today...
    A 360deg strobe light fitted to antenna or sand flag.
    Funny the stuff that runs through the noggin when doin the K's
    Poor bloody foreigners, look at a map of Aussie, highways go every where, just not all suit your 2litre fuel saver they use at home.
