13-Jul-2003 -- José Augusto, Marquinho, Ana Emília e Luis Pedro resolveram no fim de expediente de uma Sexta-feira irem conquistar sua primeira confluência pelo TocaBrasil. Saímos de Brasília com destino a Chapada Gaúcha em Minas Gerais. Chegando na Chapada, adquirimos uma autorização junto ao IBAMA para nossa entrada no Parque Nacional Grande Sertão Veredas (Muito bonito). Depois resolvemos ir a conquista da confluência. Atravessamos o rio São Franscisco de balsa e finalmente conseguimos alcançar nosso destino, a confluência.
