13-Aug-2015 -- Fortsetzung von 68°N 108°O.

Unser letzter Punkt auf dieser Kanutour war mit 3,7 km vom Fluss nicht so weit weg, aber es war zu erkennen, dass es überwiegend durch offenen und trockenen Wald ging. Der Trail führte uns über einen Vermessungspunkt und so war die Teilnehmerzahl doch wieder größer.

Neben Stephan Gelaude, Joachim Hain und meiner Person, die alle 4 Confluence Punkte besucht haben, kamen auch noch Eva Hain, Walter Dick, Sergej, Gerhard Janssen und Dirk Canwels mit. Die Freude am Punkt war diesmal besonders groß, weil wir doch alle Confluence Punkte erreicht hatten.

Es war eine sehr schöne Wanderung und als wir nach etwa 10 km wieder zurück in unserem Camp waren, wurde ein klein wenig gefeiert.

English version

13-Aug-2015 -- Continued after 68°N 108°E.

Our last confluence point of this canoe tour wasn’t too far away from the river Arga Sala, only about 3.7 km, and we could see that the way would lead through open and dry forest. Moreover, the way passed a survey point and therefore more friends had interest to take part in the expedition.

Beside Stephan Gelaude, Joachim Hain, and me, who have visited all 4 confluence points, there were also Eva Hain, Walter Dick, Sergej, Gerhard Janssen, and Dirk Canwels. Our happiness was overwelming, as the whole party had reached the confluence.

It was a very pleasant stroll of about 10 km and after we had returned to our camp, we had a little celebration.
