14-Oct-2007 -- The adventure comes from N°38 W°122.

Having fulfilled the 2nd part of the mission, I returned to freeway 4 and went east up to Antioch city where I turned east on Main Street, later took Brentwood Blvd. south and then freeway 4 east until I arrived at Stockton City. When I passed by Stockton I took freeway 99 north and immediately Fremont St. toward the east and here I must fuel my car (I believe it was about time to do it). Later I arrived at Marengo highway and passed through large extensions of harvested lands.

Finally I arrived at the intersection with Bellota Rd and turned right towards the south. Minutes later I saw the famous house in front of the confluence and stopped my vehicle there. GPS and camera in hand, I crossed the road and approached the barbed fence where I succeesfully found the confluence in one short but very satisfactory "Confluence Dance" at 03:51 pm. I took the required photos and saw that the farm house just in front of the confluence is being reconstructed, so perhaps the next hunters of this confluence, could make a report of how the works on that house are going on. The confluence is located at 45 meters above sea level.

Having fulfilled the 3rd mission of the day, I set off for my 4th and last hunting of the day, N°37 W°122.


14-Oct-2007 -- La aventura viene de N°38 W°122.

Cumplida la 2da parte de la misión de día, regreso a la autopista 4 dirección este hasta la población de Antioch donde tomo la calle Main dirección este, luego Brentwood Blvd. hacia el sur y posteriormente la autopista 4 dirección este hasta llegar a la ciudad de Stockton. Al pasar Stockton la autopista 99 norte e inmediatamente la calle Fremont dirección este donde debo alimentar mi carro con gasolina (creo que ya era ahora). Posteriormente llego a la carretera Marengo la cual pasa por largas extensiones de terrenos cultivados.

Finalmente llego a la intercepción con la carretera Bellota y giro a la derecha hacia el sur. Unos minutos después veo la famosa casa frente de la confluencia y detengo mi vehículo. Con GPS y cámara en mano, cruzo la carretera y me aproximo a la cerca alambrada donde logro encontrar la confluencia en una corta pero muy satisfactoria “Danza de la Confluencia” a las 03:51 pm. Tomo las fotos de rigor, observando que la casa de la granja que está justo en frente de la confluencia está siendo reconstruida, así que quizás los próximos cazadores de esta confluencia, podrán ir haciendo un reporte de como evolucionan los trabajos en la misma. La confluencia está ubicada a 45 msnm.

Cumplida la 3ra misión del día, me dirigo a realizar la 4ta y última cacería en N°37 W°122.
