#1: The photographs that were taken at the Confluence were unremarkable in their unremarkableness. This one shows the difference between the datums. Notice the AAA inscribed in the sand (look very carefully).
#2: This one shows the difference between the datums from the opposite direction. As you can see by the background, the area is very bleak.
#3: The last fuel station at Nadqān was simple to say the least. The fuel was gravity fed from an old tanker that had been dumped on top of a sand dune. The fuel went into a jerrycan and then was poured into the vehicle.
#4: The joy of the early morning camp is unsurpassed.
#5: The dune-lines were frequent, but the dunes were never very high.
#6: However, the sand was often very soft.
#7: The freedom of driving in the Empty Quarter with no habitation for hundreds of kilometres in every direction, is exhilarating.
