19-Feb-2012 -- Partimos de San Miguel de Tucumán con destino a la ciudad de Salta.

Es sumamente importante averiguar previamente si llovió en la zona, para ello llamamos por teléfono un día antes a la estación de servicio de Rosario de la Frontera, dónde nos dijeron que la ruta estaba en condiciones.

Estudiamos el mapa previamente y vimos que para llegar a 26°S 65°W era necesario desviarse de la ruta 9, con destino a La Candelaria.

Toda la ruta es de ripio y está en condiciones de transitarla a 70 km/h. El tramo El Ceibal - Rosario de la Frontera es bastante solitario.

Gracias al GPS paramos el auto lo mas cercano a 26°S 65°W; en poco minutos atravesé un pequeño alambrado (es propiedad privada) y caminando 30 metros llegué al sitio.

Si bien es boscosa la zona, no es una vegetación cerrada. Fue emocionante ver cuando el GPS marcó tantos ceros juntos.

Este proyecto lo descubrí gracias a un challenge de geocaching, por ello aproveché la oportunidad para esconder un caché.

19-Feb-2012 - We left San Miguel de Tucumán to the city of Salta.

It is extremely important to find out first if it rained in the area, so I made a phone call one day prior to the service station of Rosario de la Frontera, where we were told that the route was in good condition.

Previously studied the map and saw that to reach 26°S 65°W it was necessary to deviate from Route 9, bound for La Candelaria.

The entire route is gravel and is able to be driven at 70 kph. The section Ceibal - Rosario de la Frontera is pretty lonely.

Thanks to the GPS stopped the car as close to 26°S 65°W, in a few minutes crossed a small fence (it is private property) and walked 30 meters until I arrived at the site.

While the area is forested, vegetation is not closed. It was exciting to see when the GPS showed many zeros together.

I discovered this project by a challenge of geocaching , so I took the opportunity to hide a cache.
