31-Oct-2011 -- Confluence #2 on this trip, continued from 28N 10W and visited on 31 October 2011.

I had no real hope to get this one, since the Google Earth satellite picture indicated a rocky surface with no road or track visible. We decided to give it a try and at the most promising spot where I wanted to leave the tarmac road on the way from Messeied to Tan Tan - surprise - there was a small vehicle track pointing in the desired direction. I couldn't believe my luck, but although steadily winding and turning, the tracks lead almost exactly to the Confluence spot 26 km away.
