07-Abr-2012 -- Difícil de creer, pero es cierto. El mundo está cambiando. La sequía está avanzando, y he aquí una prueba de ello. Alcanzamos el Punto de Confluencia por la directísima desde el camino sin pavimentar sin siquiera mojarnos nuestras zapatillas.

Después de acampar en el Faro Punta Médanos, tomamos la Ruta 11 hasta el camino sin pavimentar donde se encuentra el Monumento a José Luis Cabezas y tras seguir unos 15 km, estacionamos nuestro vehículo y comenzamos a prepararnos para embarrarnos hasta la cintura. Sin embargo, al cruzar el alambrado y emprender nuestra travesía nos dimos cuenta que los campos enlodados y las lagunas descritas en las crónicas anteriores estaban secas. De esta manera fue fácil llegar al CP, simplemente caminando por un relieve muy singular esquivando los pastizales.

07-Apr-2012 -- Hard to believe, but it's true. World is changing. Drought is in advance, and right here there is a proof of that. We reached the Confluence Point by the direct way from the unpaved road without even wetting our shoes.

After camping at Faro Punta Médanos, we took the Route 11 until the unpaved road where José Luis Cabezas's Monument is placed and continuing another 15 km, we parked our vehicle and started to prepare for being stuck into deep mud up to the waist. However, after crossing the fence and undertake our journey we realized that the mud spot and the lagoons described at the previous logs were dried. That was the way to reach the CP, just walking by a singular relief avoiding the bushes.
