#1: Confluence 24N 57E

(visited by John Monkman)

29-Dec-2006 -- This was our first confluence visit and it proved very straight forward. We made the visit during our journey from Dubayy to Masqaṭ and it proved a welcome break in our journey and ideal for a quick brew.

Once we left the main Masqaṭ-to-Ṣuḥār road, we took a few wrong turns into private plantations, however we eventually found the barren terrain which allowed us to drive straight to the Confluence. We navigated past the gas pipeline which was well marked with a berm and marker posts.

The small pile of stones left by the previous visits were still there, so we added a few more and waited for the kettle to boil.
