28-Oct-2005 -- Our group of 5 motorbikes, 1 quad 4x4, and 4 cars 4x4 crossed the Murzuq desert from Murzuq village to Anaj Pass from East to West. On the third day of crossing, a wheel junction broke on a Toyota 80, so with only 2-wheels-drive we deciced to do a deviation from our original route.

On the fifth day of crossing, I saw that our new route passed near to an unexplored Confluence, 25N 12E, so I decided to visit it with my quad Kawasaki kvf 700. On 28 October 2005 at 10:56, my Garmin 276c advised me that the Confluence was under my feet.
