11-Aug-2015 -- Fortsetzung von 68°N 107°O.

Der nächste Confluence Punkt ist mit etwa 8,3 km am weitesten vom Fluss der Arga Sala entfernt. Stephan Gelaude, Joachim Hain und Christian Tessmer haben trotzdem den langen Weg in Angriff genommen. Zunächst ging es einige Kilometer über eine Steinwüste, bevor wir im Anschluss über insgesamt 72 kleinere und größere Bäche zu unserem Punkt kamen. Die Freude, es geschafft zu haben, war groß.

Nachdem wir wieder am Fluss waren, lagen 18,3 km hinter uns und wir freuten uns bereits auf unseren letzten Punkt 68°N 109°O, den wir nach weiteren 60 Paddelkilometer erreicht sollten.

English version

11-Aug-2015 -- Continued after 68°N 107°E.

The next confluence point had the largest distance from the river Arga Sala, about 8.3 km. Anyway, Stephan Gelaude, Joachim Hain, and Christian Tessmer tackled the long way. First the way lead us for some kilometres across a stony desert, then we had to cross in total 72 smaller and larger creeks before reaching our goal. The joy after the success was immense.

When we returned to the river, we had covered a distance of 18.3 km. We already looked forward to our last confluence 68°N 109°E, which we would reach after another 60 kilometres of paddling.
