Nafud Desert

Pete Thornton mentions in his explanation of how he and MacGyver first met, that MacGyver saved him from quicksand in the “Wadee Nafud” desert. 

We assume that he was referring to the An-Nafud desert in Saudi Arabia.
There is an area of northern Saudi Arabia called the Al Widyan (or alwidyan) Plan – Al Widyan means Valleys in Arabic… so it’s probable that Pete is actually saying (maybe mis-pronouncing) Widyan or Widy Nafud in reference to that area of the desert.
