14-Jan-2004 -- With my father (Akira - 88 years-old), two daughters (Karina - 8 years-old and Patricia - 5 years-old), and two nieces (Andressa - 14 years-old and Lis 13 years-old), from Maringa, by road BR-369, we went SW up to Engenheiro Beltrao. Then, by state route PR-082 we passed by Quinta do Sol and Fenix, to reach Barbosa Ferraz. There, joined us Tadassi, an old friend, a local resident.

At 2km from downtown Barboza Ferraz, going by un unpaved road, the confluence point was 150m to the right, in a farm. We walked up to the border of trees, at 35m from CP, but close enought to meet the criteria. The indicated altitud was 339m (asl) and accuracy 5,8m. The local time was 17:20h.

Com meu pai (Akira - 88 anos), duas filhas (Karina - 8 anos e Patricia - 5 anos), e duas sobrinhas (Andressa - 14 anos e Lis 13 anos), de Maringa, pela rodovia BR-369, fomos sudoeste ate Engenheiro Beltrao. Entao, pela rodovia estadual PR-082, passamos por Quinta do Sol e Fenix para chegar em Barbosa Ferraz.

Distante 2 km do centro de Barbosa Ferraz, indo por uma estrada nao pavimentada, o ponto de confluencia estava a 150m para a direita, em um pasto. Andamos ate o limite de arvores, ainda distante 35m do ponto exato, mas perto o suficiente para atender aos criterios. A altitude indicada era 339m e precisao de 5,8m. O horario local era de 17:20h.
