31-Oct-2004 -- The purpose was to enjoy the holiday and hunt two more confluences in Goiás, each time farther from Brasília. Since our friends went to different places in the holiday, only Kelly and I decided to hunt this confluence. We are the ladies confluence hunters.
We went out from Brasília around 11:30am going to Goiás Velho, where we had a delicious empadão goiano (a typical food). We took a ride at the city, and then we decided to sleep in Itapirapuã, 60km far from Goiás Velho in Jussara’s direction. There, we stayed at the house of a Kelly’s old friend.
On Sunday (Oct. 31st), at 7:30a.m., we started looking for the confluence 16°S 51°W. Twelve kilometers after Jussara, we were at a non-paved road, and the GPS was indicating that we should go straight forward. According to the maps, we should drive as far as a certain point, and then we would have to walk for more 3 or 4 km. However, there was a small road that took us to a group of rocks, which is located at 12 meters far from the confluence. We tried to find someone to give us the permission to enter, but we could not find anyone. Then , we decided to proceed. We walked on the rocks and arrived at a point that was 8 meters far from the confluence. From that point on, it was very dangerous to continue. It was a place where we could see many dissolute rocks and the access was very difficult. We took some photos and went to Jussara to eat pamonhas (a typical food) at 9:30a.m, since we had our mission completed successfully. Then, we went to Aruanã, where we would look for the confluence 15°S 51°W.

31-Oct-2004 -- A idéia era aproveitar o feriado e caçar mais duas confluências de Goiás, agora cada vez mais distantes de Brasília. Como cada um resolveu ir para um lado no feriado, fomos somente a Kelly e eu, dessa vez seria uma caçada de confluência só de ladies confluence hunters.
Saímos de Brasília por volta das 11:30h rumo a Goiás Velho, onde comemos um delicioso empadão goiano. Depois de passear um pouco decidimos dormir em Itapirapuã, a 60km no rumo de Jussara, onde morava uma amiga de infância da Kelly.
No domingo 31/10, saímos às 7:30h rumo a confluência 16ºS 51ºW. Após 12 km de Jussara entramos numa estrada de terra, com o GPS sempre apontando para a frente. Pelos mapas teríamos que seguir até um certo ponto de carro e de lá uns 3 a 4km a pé, mas apareceu uma estradinha que nos levou a uma pedreira, que fica a 120m da confluência. Tentamos achar alguém para pedir permissão para entrar, mas como não encontramos ninguém, resolvemos prosseguir. Caminhamos pelas pedras e chegamos a uns 8 metros da confluência, daí para frente já ficava muito perigoso para prosseguir, um terreno com muita pedra solta e difícil acesso. Tiramos as fotos e como tínhamos cumprido a missão às 9:30h fomos comer pamonhas em Jussara. Depois seguimos para Aruanã, onde caçaríamos a confluência 15ºS 51ºW.
