This morning saw two trekkers up early in Port Moresby in order to catch their flight to Popondetta to commence their trek. There names are: Kellie Gill and Matthew Dominey who are walking with Tony Ogonemi as there guide. Arnold Jinga is a personal porter for Kellie and Chris Yauga is on the track as their food porter. The flight arrived on time at Girua airport and they should be reaching Kokoda around about now to commence their trek.

Message received today from Tony Ogonemi the guide for this trek:

"Hi Gail, we camped at Iswurava and now moving to Templeton's Crossing today.  Our trekkers are going well so today looking forward to reaching our destination".

Today after leaving Isurava Village they would have walked up through the Isurava Memorial area before heading to Alola.  Following a break at Alola, they would have made their way down to Eora Creek.  Another break, before heading to Templeton's for the night.

The half way food drop was supposed to be dropped into Efogi this morning but bad weather set in and its now down for tomorrow, weather permitting.

These trekkers are powering along and have now reached the half point of Efogi. Tomorrow they tackle Brigade Hill as they make their way along the track to Menari and possibly Nauro. Kellie Gill and Matthew Dominey have set themselves a big challenge as its what we consider a 'fast' trek!

Tony has let me know they have now reached Nauro Village right on target per our itinerary. Tomorrow their last night on the trail will be at Ua'Ule Creek unless they make another decision tomorrow whilst on the track and decide to move closer to Goldie River as they walk off the track the next morning. Tony said they were all looking forward to Day 5.

Tony called from Maguli Range earlier today to say they were on the move heading towards Ua'Ule Creek where they planned to stop for the night.  He said they hope to walk off the track around 10:30am tomorrow morning. Everyone continues to do well.  Picture them tomorrow morning as they cross Goldie River before walking up their last hill and under the archway at Owres' Cnr.

Congratulations to our latest group of trekkers who walked off the track at Owers' Corner around 11:30am this morning. At the moment they are presently being driven back down off the mountain via Bomana War Cemetery. Well done from all of us here at Kokoda Trekking. A mighty effort as a fast trek is quite a challenge and you did it.
