A group of dehydrated hikers sat in the desert sand, and fanned themselves trying to cool down.

A smart man impressed the others with his solar powered fan.

The hikers turned to one another asking if there was some kind of ban on water, since there was no water in sight.

Two friends shared a single can of soda.

By the end of the day, all of the hikers had a very dark tan.

At night, they all gathered around and cooked a meal in their pan

One of the boys saw a mirage and ran to it, thinking it was water.

Fortunately, they saw a rescue van equipped with gallons of water.

Now that they were hydrated and happy, the hikers made a new plan to go back home!

They were all very thankful to the rescue team for lending them a hand.

After they arrived at home, the last thing they ever wanted to see again was sand.
