19-Oct-2010 -- On our way to Wāw al-Nāmūs we took the T-junction near Umm al-Arānib in direction al-Qaṭrūn. After 14 km we tried to leave this road to get into a big and flat sandfield. After only 20 meters we got stuck in the very soft sand. We had to lower the pressure of the tires in order to get to the point.

We drove straight east and after 9.5 km we reached the confluence point. This point is in the middle of nowhere, nothing to be seen but very flat and soft sand, a boring place.
