26-Jul-2010 -- This is my 5th DCP. I now have 4 in Libya and 1 in Mozambique. I must say, every visit to a new DCP is like that first one. Awesome!

Again I am here in Libya working with a seismic company out in the desert just south of the city of Surt. The desert here is relatively flat, however there was some undulation out near the DCP. It only took us 2 hours to reach the DCP, I was very surprised it was available for the taking.

Only 2 of us ventured out this morning, myself and my driver, Salim Fannan. This is Salim's first DCP, hopefully he will be seen later with his own collection.

Got to say hi to Mike and Rex, Mike the GIS guru and Rex the DCP junky... like me.
