  1. The fence was built as a "flood debris catcher" during flash floods and the valley now has a full sized dam across the valley floor just before you reach the track into the Edge of the World. There are a couple of "gates in the fences" across the tracks into both wadis that are open and accessible by offroaders. A side wadi in the area is used by National Guard for firing practice but this is not a problem for visitors to the Edge (there is a helpful "gate security guard" at the entrance to direct you to the track to the Edge). The track entrance has shifted backwards and forwards over the past couple of years due to flood damage, but new tracks spring up to keep this popular landmark accessible.
  2. This fence is more of a "flood debris catcher". You can access the Lake and Waterfall using the directions in Ionis' book, by following the track around the outside of these "fences" - the tracks on the maps are still valid and a new double highway is being built from Route 40/petrol station that takes you through the sand to firmer ground and the last 4km are offroad to the waterfall and 50m to the Lake. And there are now brown signs indicating the road to both.
  3. me N u are planning a couple of long distance camping/caching trips - November 2010: Najran to Riyadh through the Empty Quarter and February 2011: The White Volcanoes and The Empty Quarter (Haradh). If you are interested in joining please email menugeocaching@gmail.com or go to www.saudigeocachers.com - spaces are filling fast, register soon to avoid disappointment.
  4. Hello We did this trip in January 2010 (we live in Saudi Arabia, but were holidaying in Qatar and Bahrain) and bagged caches along the way. The road is remote and we had no troubles detouring to find the caches. Most of the caches on the way to Bahrain are within 4 or 5 kms of the road. Have fun and happy caching! Photos: Landscapes are NO problem, but if you want to snap people, it's always best to ask first in Saudi Arabia. As for registering at the embassy, you can if you want to - it is never compulsory, just highly recommended if there are problems while you are in-country. me N u
  5. Its a great site, isn't it ? Sorry Carbon Hunter my rescue attempt for one of your Coins went in vain. But it's an excellent tool. Leo No problem It looks like another of mine in Wadi Asimah may be MIA too Please log the rescue attempt on the TB rescue site perhaps you'll get credit for it it still shows as a rescue attempt logged - but not as coin missing? What a great idea - we will be posting a link to this site on our Saudi Geocachers website www.saudigeocachers.com - We picked up 10 TBs in Qatar recently and several in Saudi that had been sitting there for almost a year, some more than 3! Nice to have them back in circulation again
