16-Jun-2013 -- Viajando desde Misiones hacia Asunción en Paraguay, mientras marchábamos con nuestras chatas, vi que estábamos relativamente cerca de esta confluencia. En la previa, y como ya sabia el recorrido que haríamos había estado mirando en GE, y note que estaba a no mas de 100 metros de un camino rural.

De tal manera, cuando estaba cerca, le avise por radio a Eduardo que estábamos muy cerca, y él no tuvo ningún problema en acompañarme y tratar de llegar al lugar. En mi caso estaba muy ansioso, ya que seria mi primera confluencia lograda fuera de Argentina.

Tal cual estaba visto en la previa, el camino nos llevó a solo 100 m del lugar. Una vez allí, caminamos los pocos metros y "clavamos los Ceros" una vez más. La sorpresa la tuvimos al regreso de esos 100 m. Cuando llegamos a nuestros vehículos nos encontramos con un grupo de curiosos paraguayos que estaban mirando lo que estábamos haciendo en ese campo "inundado". Inmediatamente mi amigo Andrés Pino, le comentó que estábamos haciendo un estudio "Topográfico" del lugar, ya que era probable que por allí pasara una etapa de la próxima edición del "Dakar".

Lo mas notable, que cuando yo llegué a los dos o tres minutos, sin saber lo que Andrés le había comentado, le dije exactamente lo mismo. Y es más, les dije que les conseguiría entradas de "favor" para que puedan presenciar la competencia. Realmente vivimos un episodio por demás de cómico, que se suma al enorme número de anécdotas que tenemos en este tipo de actividad.

11-Jun-2013 -- Traveling from Misiones to Asunción in Paraguay, while we were marching with our truck, I saw that we were relatively close to this confluence. In the preparations, and as I knew the route we would had been looking at GE, and note that it was to not more than 100 metres from a rural road.

So, when I was close, notify Eduardo by radio that we were very close, and he did not have any problems in joining me and trying to reach the site. In my case, I was very eager, since it would be my first Confluence accomplished outside Argentina.

Such as it was planned, the road led us to only 100 m away from the place. Once there, we walked the few meters and "put zeros" once again. We had the surprise to the return of those 100 m. when we arrived at our vehicles; we have a group of curious Paraguayans who were looking at what we were doing in that "flooded" field. Immediately my friend Andrés Pino, said you that we were doing a "Topographic" study of the place, since it was likely that there could be a stage of the next edition of the "Dakar".

The most remarkable, that when I arrived at two or three minutes, without knowing what Andres had told him, I said exactly the same. And Moreover, I told them that I would get them courtesy tickets for the “Dakar” so that they can witness the competition. Truly live a comic episode, which adds to the huge number of stories that we have in this type of activity.
