Last night was cold, well below freezing, the wind eventually dropped and we were treated to a bright moonlit night with star filled skies. Not that we saw much of it, we stayed inside staying warm.
We spent some time this morning trying to find a track onto the salt surface or salar. It took a few attempts before we found a track that I was prepared to follow and we did indeed get onto the surface of the salt. I was a little nervous so we did not venture far. I have seen vehicles bogged on salt pans in Australia and did not want to tempt fate - without recovery equipment and/or help from other vehicles. We would have no chance of extracting ourselves without help.
