Viene de 33°N 97°W.

Luego de un buen y placentero descanso, desayuno temprano en el hotel y realizo el chequeo de salida para dirigirme todavía en oscuridad hacia mi primer objetivo del día, la confluencia 34°N 97°W, mi primera vez que visitaba el Estado Oklahoma. El pronóstico de clima para hoy indicaba bajas temperaturas y lluvias leves.

Salgo del área de Dallas/Fort Worth hacia el norte inicialmente por la autopista 121 y posteriormente tomo la interestatal I-35. Al llegar a la población de Marietta, salgo de la I-35 y entro a la carretera 32 hacia el Este. Posteriormente tomo la carretera Enville hacia el Norte y al llegar a la intercepción con la carretera N3373 una camioneta pickup que venia por la Enville desde el Este entra a esta carretera y yo tambien.

La camioneta entra a un camino privado y la sigo a lo lejos. Luego se estaciona al final de la vía y al descender el conductor me acerco con la carta para solicitar permiso al propietario. Resulto ser que quien venia conduciendo era el Sr. Willis, el mismo propietario de la hacienda quien al verme de inmediato me dijo con una sonrisa “tu vienes a visitar la confluencia”.

Tuvimos una buena charla, yo le deje copias de los reportes previos y el me indicó como llegar al área de la confluencia. Le pregunté por la cerca eléctrica y me señaló que estaba fuera de servicio, que podía pasar con el vehículo por un portón verde pero que después el camino se acabada y era a mi riesgo si continuaba en el ya que el terreno tenía varios huecos.

Pasé el portón verde y al terminarse el camino continué conduciendo el vehiculo ya que caminar con la llovizna y el frío que hacia (2°C) era una pesadilla. A los pocos minutos me encontraba haciendo la famosa Danza de la Confluencia con el carro a una elevación de 224 msnm. Luego en el sitio me bajo del carro, tomo las fotos de rigor e inicio el retorno.

Al salir saludo al Sr. Willis y observo en la intercepción de la carretera Enville con la N3373 un aviso que dice “no se permite caceria”, pero yo le agregaría de confluencias si. Luego tomo el rumbo a la confluencia 34N 96W, pero solo puede llegar a 400mts ya que el propietario de la hacienda no permitió accesar el sitio. En virtud de ello, continuo mi viaje según el plan a la confluencia 34°N 95°W.

Comes from 33°N 97°W.

After a good and pleasant rest, I had an early breakfast at the hotel, made the check-out and set course still in darkness towards my first goal of the day, the confluence 34°N 97°W, my first time I visited Oklahoma State. The weather forecast for today indicated low temperatures and mild rain.

I set off of Dallas/Fort Worth area northward initially by highway 121 and then take the Interstate I-35. When reach Marietta town, I leave the I-35 and go to highway 32 eastward. Subsequently took the Enville North Road and reach the interception with the road N3373 a pickup truck that came by the Enville from East enters this road and I also did it.

The truck enters a driveway and I follow it in the distance. He then parked at the end of the road and to descend the driver I approached him with the Letter to The Owner to request permission from the owner. Turned out to be that he was Mr. Willis, the ranch owner who once he saw me, immediately told me with a smile "you come to visit the confluence".

We had a good talk, I leave copies of previous reports and he showed me how to get to the confluence area. I asked him about the electric fence and noted me that it was out of service, which could pass with the vehicle by a green gate but after the road is finished and was my risk if I continued driving in the field because had several holes.

I passed the green gate and at the end of the road I preferred continue driving the vehicle that walk with drizzle and cold towards (2 ° C) because it was a nightmare. Within minutes I was making the famous Confluence Dance with the vehicle at a elevation of 224 masl. Then I get out of the car, took the required photos and started the return.

Going out I greetings to Mr. Willis. At the interception of Enville road with N3373 there is a sign that says “No hunting” I would add but confluences yes. I set up course to the confluence 34N 96W, but I reach an approach of 400 mts because owner of the property did not allowed access the site. So I continue my journey according to the plan toward the confluence 34°N 95°W
