(visited by John Monkman)

10-Jan-2008 -- This was my second visit to 23N 56E after an unsuccessful visit in September 2007. The route from Dubayy was easy to follow via the Dubayy-Ḥattā road until the Dhayd turn-off. Approximately 15 minutes along this road we followed signposting to Fiji.

Once close to the UAE/Oman border fence, we followed our noses to the confluence site. We managed to park approximately 200 m from the location and walked the final few steps.

At the site the pile of stones was a little bigger from my previous visit and to our surprise, we found a GeoCache treasure chest. Our two younger explorers were overwhelmed with excitement and examined its contents with great interest.

Anyway we concluded the visit with a brief snack and the required photographs before heading back to the smoke of Dubayy.
