19-Apr-2004 -- Tras la terrible frustración que nos creo habernos dado cuenta que nuestro primer objetivo habia sido visitado 3 dias antes que nosotros (10°N 69°W); decidimos emprender en una nueva aventura esta vez con 2 nuevos pasajeros desde Maracay hacia el nuevo Objetivo 9°N 67°W 2.0 km (1.2 miles) NNW of El Calvario, Guarico.

La vía la cual nos permitió admirar en todo su esplendor y calor con el sol a pleno mediodía lo hermoso de nuestro llano, pasando San Juan de Los Morros, Ortiz, Dos Caminos, El Sombrero, luego la vía a El Calvario, y seguidamente el punto de inicio de nuestra ruta, el Fundo Las Camacitas, donde dejamos nuestra camioneta y comenzamos a caminar 1.9 kms sin saber lo que nos esperaba guiados por Jean Carlos; de 1 pm a 2:30 pm en un trayecto con 45° C y todos rasguñados de los palos, monte y matas con espinas.

En el camino pudimos ver Ganado, conejos, y hasta un Venado; finalmente llegamos a nuestro objetivo ubicado dentro del Fundo El Guarao, Propiedad del Sr. Chama, cuya principal actividad es la Ganadería (Produccion de Leche y Queso), pero lo mejor fue el regreso el cual nos tomo 45 minutos pero que al ver la camioneta, una sombrita y la cava que habiamos dejado repleta de bebidas refrescantes, sentimos la alegría mas grande de nuestras vidas!!!

After the terrible frustration that the first objective was visited 3 days before (10°N 69°W); we decided to start a new adventure this time with two new passengers from Maracay to the new Objective 9°N 67°W 2,0 km (1,2 thousands) NNW of the Calvario, Guarico.

The route allowed us to admire in all its splendor and heat with the sun to total noon the beautiful of Llanos Venezolanos, passing San Juan de los Morros, Ortiz, Dos Caminos, El Sombrero, soon the route to the Calvario, and next the point of beginning of our route, Fundo Las Camacitas, where we left our light truck and we began to walk to 1,9 kms without knowing what it waited, guided us by Jean Carlos; from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in a passage with 45° C and all scratched of woods, scrub and bushes with thorns.

In the way we could see Cattle, rabbits, and until a Deer; finally we arrived at our objective located within Fundo El Guarao, Property of Mr. Chama, whose main activity is the Cattle Ranch (Production of Milk and Cheese), but the best thing was the return which it took 45 minutes but when we saw the light truck, a shade and the digging that we left filled with soft drinks, we felt the great joy of our lives!
