Near Entre Rios Call Ceibas


  • DrBre


So I get to a hashpoint for the second time, but not in my own graticule. At least it was a Virgin Graticule.

The location is near a town in Entre Rios called Ceibas, 95% of the road was highway.

I cross the Zarate-BrazoLargo Bridge (a bridge that cross two 700 metre wide arms of Parana River) And I arrive to Ceibas.etre

I get to the dirt road, and I begin to realize that there are storm probabilities and the road will became a trap if it start to rain. In some places there is water and mud next to the road.

I keep going on slowly (the road is really bad) and I start to see all the animals you can see in the farm: Cows (and bulls) in the middle of the roads, ducks, turkeys (WTF?? this is not normal), goats, sheep, dogs, horses, chickens. I begin to think that the people who lives there are feeding a velociraptor, since when I come back there are fewer cows and goats. Need to come back and check this fact.

I arrive near to the hashpoint and I realize that it´s in the wrong side of the road. You can´t trust Google Earth.

Like the last time, it´s full of mosquitoes, because the hashpoint is in the middle of the wild. The closest I get without traspassing is around 12 mts.

Then I decide that no person who is not crazy will be in a dirt road, 15 km away from civilization, with a storm ready to go, with a possible velociraptor around, so I cross the wiring. Thank God I got my heavy duty pants and resistant shoes, because is really wild. Thank god the velociraptor scares the snakes and spider.

So I get to the hashpoint, at least 0.4mts away from it.I take a picture of me and two panoramic from the hashpoint.
