25-Jan-2009 --

El día domingo 25/01/08 aprovechando un tiempito libre, partimos Francisco Masías, José Ceballos, y mi persona Jorge Nieves, a bordo de nuestros Land Cruiser serie 80, desde Barquisimeto al PC N10W69 el cual nos queda bastante cerca pero que aun no habíamos hecho la respectiva visita.

Llegamos al PC por una carretera engransonada en condiciones bastante buenas a excepción de unas secciones que se encuentran inundadas por el desborde de los sistemas de riego que se encuentran en las orillas de la misma. Al Llegar al PC nos atendió muy amablemente el encargado de la granja en donde se encuentra ubicada la Confluencia el Señor Omar Montilla al cual agradecemos su amable atención y permiso para acceder a la granja.

Procedimos a efectuar la famosa danza de la confluencia para logar los ceros en los GPS tomando las respectivas fotos y algunas otras del área. Conversamos un rato con Omar sobre las actividades que se realizan en la zona y sobre otros posibles accesos desde diferentes puntos de la región, nos indico que según el recuerda la ultima visita había sido ya hace como un año.

Terminada la tertulia y después de habernos refrescado y celebrado la visita al PC, abordamos los Land Cruiser y partimos rumbo a Barquisimeto donde compartimos unos buenos pepitos de la calle del hambre y aprovechamos para empezar a planear nuestra próxima cacería de una confluencia.

25-Jan-2009 --

This Sunday taking advantage of a free short time, Francisco Masías, Jose Ceballos, and me Jorge Nieves, set up our course on board of our Land Cruiser series 80, from Barquisimeto to the PC N10W69, located very close to home but we had not visit yet.

We arrived to the CP area by a dirty road in quite good conditions with the exception of sections that are flooded by the overflowing of the irrigation systems located beside the road. Once we were close to CP, the guy in charge of the farm, Mr. Omar Montilla was very kind and gave us permission to pass and arrive to CP.

Then we proceed with the famous Confluence/s Dance to succeed the zeros in the GPS and took the required pictures and some other of the area. We talked for a while with Omar on the activities that are made in the zone and on other possible accesses from different points, He said to us that according to his remembers, last visit to this point was about a year ago.

Once we finished our conversation and after having refreshed and having celebrated the visit to the CP, we our way back to home with our Land Cruiser and we set up to Barquisimeto, where we had some good “Pepitos” (a French style bread with a steak, cheese, various sauces, tomatoes, and french fries) in a very typical zone name “Calle del Hambre” (Hunger Street) an area of multiple and very informal restaurants like a market, where we begin to plan our next confluence hunting.
