There was a large sandstorm here last night. I came out of the tent this morning to find the waterhole here at the oasis full of sand.
I sent word to the Sheik for assistance and have begun clearing the sand from the area around the water.
I will begin clearing that when I am done with what I must do first.
Cairns are buried and must be located again and cleared of sand.
I hope to have at least a small pool of water soon for travelers.
I'm afraid work will be going on for several months though.
I heard of many new travelers beginning their trek across NML. To them I say follow the track of those that have been before you. Watch for traps set by Nic and his gang. They can be anywhere along the trail.
To the others already well along in their journey, Stay vigilant and continue traveling safely.
I must get back to clearing the oasis now.
One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.
