BUENOS AIRES SOUTH EAST

Set off from Buenos Aires with destination to General Madariaga, which is quiet and typical village of the South East of the province of Buenos Aires, and also very close to some of leading spas of the Atlantic coast. It is my intention to make the confluences "36 S 58 W" - "37 S 57 W" - "37 S 58 W" and "35 S 58 W", which were all successful!

35S 58W

Venía de realizar el mismo 11 de diciembre la 37 S 58W, la cuál salí de esta cerca del medio día. Serían las 16:00 hs cuando estaba en el cruce llamado de Etcheverry, de allí tomaría hasta la ruta 36 y luego por unas calles internas del éjido de chacras de La Plata hasta una tosquera donde se encuentra esta confluencia. Había leído de los visitantes anteriores que pasaban por un agujero en el alambrado, pero cuando llegue el portón de la tosquera estaba abierto de par en par, luego me di cuenta que las visitas anteriores las hicieron en días feriados y yo fui un viernes.

Pensé que alguien me detendría en la entrada pero no había nadie, si bien se escuchaba el ruido de las excavadoras y camiones extrayendo y cargando el material. Llegue con la chata hasta al lado de la confluencia y mientras sacaba las fotos veo un gran camión cargado con material que salía por la rampa de acceso justo donde estacione la chata, el chofer saludo y siguió acelerando a fondo el pesado camión para poder subir la pendiente.

Atrás de él salí yo rumbo a Buenos Aires, dando acá por finalizado mi raid de 4 confluencias del sud este de la provincia de Buenos Aires.

BUENOS AIRES SOUTH EAST

35S 58W

I visit today the CP 37S 58W, which I left by noon. Would be 16:00 pm when I was I the junction called Etcheverry, here I took route 36 and then some internal streets of La Plata and surrounding land where is this confluence. Had read previous visitors passing through a hole in the wiring fence, but when I arrived to the gate was wide open, then I realize that previous visits were made on holidays and today was a Friday.

I thought that someone would stop me in the entry but there was nobody, but heard the sound of bulldozers and trucks extracting and loading the material. I arrived with the truck up to the confluence and while got photos. I saw a great truck loaded with material that went by the fair access ramp where I parked my truck, the driver greets and continued accelerating the heavy truck to climb the slope.

Behind him, I left the place heading to Buenos Aires, giving here finished my raid of 4 confluences of south of the province of Buenos Aires.
