(visited by Alfredo B. Remon Mendez)

07-Nov-2013 -- Viene de 48°N 6°E.

Estando de vacaciones en Europa para visitar a mi hijo, como todo cazador de confluencia aproveché la oportunidad y visité 12 confluencias (una incompleta) incluyendo una en Francia no visitada hasta la fecha.

Con el sabor un poco amargo en la boca por no haber podido completar la visita de 48°N 6°E, tomamos rumbo a nuestro próximo objetivo. Yendo por carreteras rurales pasamos por varias poblaciones tales como Bourbonne-les-Bains, Dammartin-sur-Meuse y Meuse para finalmente llegar a la autopista A31 y luego cambiamos a la A5 siempre dirección al Oeste. Nos salimos de la autopista en las cercanías de Magnant, donde tomamos la carretera D443 hacia el sur. Pasamos por la población de Bar-sur-Seine, Villemorien, Lantages, Chaource y Vanlay. A la salida de ésta tomamos la carretera D23 al sur la cual nos llevaría a pocos metros de la confluencia.

Estacioné el carro a un lado de la carretera, me puse las botas e inicié la caminata por el terreno que estaba con deforestado listo para cultivar y húmedo, hasta el borde del área deforestada, a solo 62 mts de la confluencia. Me conformé con esta aproximación en virtud de que no contaba con medios para abrirme paso en la vegetación y que había dejado sola a mi esposa en el carro. La temperatura era muy confortable, estando en 12°C aunque se mantenía el cielo nublado.

Tomé las fotos de rigor, regresé al carro y continuamos nuestro viaje hacia la última confluencia de estas vacaciones. Al salir de esta confluencia, disfrutamos de un bello paisaje de enormes viñedos con sus plantas ya mostrando el color característico de las hojas amarillas, propias de la temporada. Estábamos en la mundialmente famosa región vitícola de Chablis.

La secuencia de casería de confluencias continúa en 48°N 3°E.

07-Nov-2013 -- Comes from 48°N 6°E.

Been on vacation in Europe to visit my son, as every confluence hunter I took the opportunity and visited 12 Confluences (one incomplete) including one in France not visited so far.

With the slightly bitter taste in the mouth by not being able to complete the visit of 48°N 6°E, we took towards our next goal. Driving on rural roads we went through several towns such as Bourbonne-les-Bains, Dammartin-sur-Meuse and Meuse to finally get to the A31 motorway and then changed to the A5 always westbound. We left the motorway in the vicinity of Magnant, where we took the D443 road to South. We passed through the town of Bar-sur-Seine, Villemorien, Lantages, Chaource, and Vanlay. Out of this we took the D23 road south which led to a few meters of the Confluence.

I parked the car on the side of the road, put on boots and started walking through the terrain that was wet and deforested ready to grow, up to the edge of the deforested area, at only 62 meters of the Confluence. I settled with this approach because I did not have means to make me into the vegetation and in addition, I had left alone my wife in the car. The temperature was very comfortable being at 12°C but the skies remained cloudy.

I took the pictures, went back to the car, and we continued our journey to the last Confluence of these holidays. Going out of the region of this Confluence, we enjoyed a beautiful landscape of huge vineyards with their plants showing the characteristic color of the yellow leaves, typical in this season. We were in the world famous wine region of Chablis.

Confluence hunting sequence continues at 48°N 3°E.
