20-Jul-2002 -- Parte del grupo de www.path4x4.com, nuevamente salimos en la búsqueda de otra confluencia. Es la mas cercana a la Capital, pero tiene la problemática de estar en una isla del Delta. Logramos conectarnos con unos isleños que por pocos pesos accedieron a cruzarnos en su humilde bote el canal Martín Irigoyen.

De esta manera accedimos a la isla en el que estaba nuestro objetivo.- Para llegar al mismo (y luego de cruzar un río) tuvimos que recorrer caminando aproximadamente 2,5 km. (y otro tanto de vuelta). de barro, agua, juncales y malezas de todo tipo.

Cave destacar los esfuerzos de Gonzalo dominando a la fiera Maia que sin descanso nos libraba de todas las especies que pudieran atacarnos, Tomy que nos daba un ejemplo de tesón al encarar toda la travesía sin decir palabra, y Francisco que luchaba cuerpo a cuerpo con el baquiano abriéndonos paso y haciendo senderos.-

Pues bien, al cabo de unas horas, llegamos al objetivo, el cual se encontraba entre medio de unos juncales, sacamos las fotos de rigor y volvimos con un hambre feroz, pues subestimamos la caminata que nos llevó casi 4hs.-

The group from www.path4x4.com once again gathered with the intention of finding a new confluence spot.

The one we decided to go for is the closest one to the Capital Federal, but has the problem of being placed in an island in the Rio Uruguay. So as to get there we got in touch we some people from the area and for little money they agreed to take us to the island in their humble boat. This way we reached the location in which our objective was placed, and in order to get to the point, we walked about 2,5 km through mud, water, and all kinds of bushes and weeds. It is to notice the efforts of Gonzalo trying to control the fierce Maia as she continuously guarded us from anything that could harm us; Tomy, that served as an example of perseverance and courage as he continuously carried on, and finally Francisco, who, along with the guide, tried non-stop to find new paths and ways to get to the place.

After some hours of walking, we finally got to the exact point, which was placed in the middle of some weeds, with the water reaching our knees. We then took the pictures, and being exhausted as we were, began the journey back to the vehicles, past the river.
