01-Mar-2004 -- Having made the first successful visit to 119°E 32°S which is a round trip of about 600 kilometres, I decided to take my son to the nearest confluence point to home a trip of about 80 kilometres. The weather started out fine although a little sultry but got progressively worse as we arrived at the CP.
We travelled from home, a farm near Toodyay east to Goomalling north to Konnongorring (population <10) then east towards the point. The confluence point is about 500 metres east off the Uberin road near the Uberin Nature reserve. The area around the confluence point is typical of much of the Western Australian "Wheatbelt" flat,open and put to crops and sheep prodution.The original vegatation appeared to be White gum (E. wandoo)and Jam (Acacia accumulata).
We left the CP fairly quickly after taking our photographs as thunderstorms and strong winds had moved in. On the way back home some of the storms had lit fires in what is a very dry and combustible landscape(see picture). Luckily no fires close to home.
