13-Apr-2005 -- Continued from 25N 11E.
On 13 April 2005 we drove across country from Wādiy Mathkendoosh to Jarma. Enroute, we passed the Marzūq Oilfield camp at 25°48'N 12°20'E, and then followed the graded track from there east towards Tasāwa as far as the 90 km marker (25°59'26"N 12°40'06"E) before veering NE at 14:30 hrs for Jarma. At 15:00 hrs our drivers took a rest at 26°07'N 12°50'E, at which time the Confluence was less c. 20 km SE - the direction in which the camera is pointing.
The terrain looked eminently driveable, and in fact had we stayed on the track to Tasāwa I estimated we would have passed within a couple of kilometres or so of the Confluence. Hopefully this information may assist other Confluence seekers to get closer.
