28-Dic-2012 -- Estando para asistir a la graduación de mi hijo Gustavo Remón como Ingeniero de Sonido en la Universidad Full Sail en Orlando Florida, nos reunimos toda la familia, viniendo mi hijo mayor Alfredo con su novia desde Paris y no solo disfrutamos de la celebración de la graduación y las fiestas navideñas, sino también aprovechamos para visitar una confluencia.

Seleccionamos la confluencia 30N 83W, la cual queda relativamente cerca de la ciudad de Orlando hacia el noroeste, por buenas vías.

Salimos de Orlando a las 6:00am con una temperatura cercana a los 6 °C, por la autopista Florida Turnpike, dirección Noroeste. Después de casi 215 km a la altura de la población de Alachua, tomamos la carretera 441 dirección Oeste, hasta High Springs donde tomamos la carretera 27 dirección Noroeste. Al llegar a la carretera rural pero asfaltada 425, giramos a la derecha y continuamos nuestro recorrido hasta la intercepción con la carretera secundaria Troy Springs, logrando estacionar nuestro vehiculo a tan solo 100 mts al Este de la confluencia.

Caminamos sin mayor inconveniente entre la plantación de árboles y en muy pocos minutos ya a las 10:41 am estábamos disfrutando de la gloriosa Danza de la Confluencia. Tomamos las fotos de rigor e iniciamos nuestro retorno. Llegamos a Orlando cerca de las 2:30pm muy contentos por sumar una nueva confluencia en el record, después de recorrer alrededor de 540 km.

28-Dec-2012 -- To attend the graduation of my son Gustavo Remón as Sound Engineer at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida, we gather the family, coming my son more Alfredo with his girlfriend from Paris and not only enjoyed the celebration of graduation and Christmas, but also took the opportunity to visit a confluence.

We selected the confluence 30N 83W, which is relatively close to the city of Orlando to the Northwest, by good roads.

We left Orlando at 6:00 am with a temperature close to 6 °C, by the expressway Florida’s Turnpike, Northwest direction. After nearly 215 km at Alachua town, change to road 441 Westward, up to High Springs town where we at highway 27 set to Northwest. At the junction with the rural but asphalted road 425, turn right and continue our journey to intercept with the secondary road Troy Springs, parking our car at just 100 meters east of the confluence.

We walked without inconvenience in the trees plantation and in a few minutes at 10:41 am we were enjoying the glorious Confluence’s Dance. We take the pictures and we started our way back. We arrived at Orlando about 2:30 p.m. excited about adding a new Confluence to our record, after travelling around 540 km.
