Viene de S35 W59.

Al salir del restaurante La Lechuza volvimos a la carretera RP 41 y en S34 59.773 W59 18.870 giramos a la izquierda por una vía de tierra la cual continuamos hasta llegar a la población de Moll donde visitamos su abandonada y antigua estación ferroviaria (S35 04.512 W59 39.045) y observamos entre otras cosas los simpáticos letreros que la misma todavía posee.

Al salir de Moll continuamos por algunas vías de tierra y en S35 06.631 W59 44.777 tomamos la carretera RP 30 girando a la derecha hacia el norte. Al llegar a S34 58.175 W59 52.874 tomamos una vía de tierra la izquierda y transitando entre distintas haciendas luego de transitar unos 14 km llegamos al área donde se encuentra la confluencia.

Es un terreno sembrado de pasto totalmente cercado y a diferencia de la cerca de la anterior confluencia, esta se encuentra como recién colocada con los alambres bien tensos. No obstante, Rosalía logra observar una pequeña sección de la cerca donde el alambre mas bajo no esta tan tenso y los podemos elevar algo para que cada uno podamos pasar arrastrados.

Una vez dentro del lote caminamos orientados por nuestros GPS unos 200 mts hasta que empezamos hacer la Danza de la Confluencia, logrando colocar todos los ceros en el GPS fácilmente. Luego de tomar las fotos requeridas, procedimos los tres a celebrar tranquilamente con un mate.

Completa la celebración, retornamos a vehiculo y procedimos a regresar a Buenos Aires. En la vía encontramos mucho tráfico típico del retorno de la gente a la ciudad luego de un fin de semana. Todos estabamos muy satisfechos, yo en particular por haber tenido la oportunidad no solo de cazar 3 confluencias, sino por haber conocido personalmente a Gustavo, Rosalia y Sergio además de conocer una pequeña parte de Argentina.

Adventure comes from S35 W59.

Once we leave the restaurant La Lechuza, returned RP 41 road and in S34 59.773 W59 18.870 turn left on a dirty road which we continue up to Moll town where we visited their abandoned and antique train station (S35 04.512 W59 39.045) and observed some funny signs that it still has.

We left Moll and continue some dirty roads up to S35 06.631 W59 44.777 where we took RP 30 road turning right towards the North. At S34 58.175 W59 52.874 we take dirty road toward northwest passing between different estates and after about 14 km we arrived to the area where the confluence is located.

The area was surrounded by a barbed fence. This one was different to the previous one. Here the fence it seems that the fence was recently tensioned. However, Rosalía achieves to observe a small section of the fence where the lowest wire was not so tense and we can raise it a little so each one passed dragged.

Once inside the lot, we walk guided by our GPS approximately 200 mts until we started doing the Confluence Dance, achieving easily all zeros in the GPS. After we took the required photos, we proceeded to celebrate quietly with the typical drink name “mate”.

Finalized the celebration, we returned to Gustavo’s Vitara and proceeded our way back to Buenos Aires. On the road we found a typical heavily traffic with everybody returning home after a weekend. All very happy were, I particularly for having had the opportunity to not only Hunt 3 concourses, but by have personally met Gustavo, Rosalia and Sergio and know a small part of Argentina.
