22-Feb-2008 -- We are a surveyors team working in Libya. We have chosen the location 30N 16E because it was the nearest, not visited, confluence point to our office.

Our trip was started from Miṣrāta on Friday, 22 February 2008 at 7:00 a.m., and the road led us trough Abū Qurayn towards Waddān. Approximately 300 km from Miṣrāta we had to leave the asphalt road and travel along a big wādiy. We didn’t find a road to go by car directly to the confluence point.

The last 9 km were a really hard walk. We finally reached 30N 16E at 3 p.m. The area around the intersection is rocky desert intersected by many deep wādiys.
