23-Mar-2006 -- From 17 to 30 March 2006, which was Iranian New Year holidays (Nowrouz), my family and I traveled around and through the deserts of Iran. We departed from Mašhad to Dāmghān, Mo`allemān, Jandaq, Meṣr, Nā'īn, Kāšān, Eṣfahān, Šīrāz, Sīrjān, Kermān, Šahdād, Rafsanjān, Yazd, Chak Chak, Ṭabas, Gonābād, Torbat-e Ḥeydarīyeh, and returned back to Mašhad. We visited very beautiful areas such as Kavīr Desert, Kāšān Salt Lake, Mahārlū Lake, Bakhtegān Lake, Lūt Desert, as well as many other places.
According to maps, we were passing near five CPs which were within reasonable distances from roads, so I decided to visit of them as many as possible. Eventually, we successfully visited four points: two points (30N 53E and 34N 57E) were brand new points, and two other points (30N 57E and 31N 55E) had been previously visited by Rainer Mautz. The fifth point (32N 54E) was not visited due to lack of enough time.
On 23 March, we were passing from Eṣfahān to Šīrāz (Shiraz). This easy (my first) CP was exactly in the middle of the main street of a small town named Seyyedān. So there was no need for walking!
The story continues at 30N 57E.
