- Sleep in an open sided 'win haus' directly on the floor without your tent
- Erect and sleep in your tent in the 'win haus' to avoid mosquito's
- Sleep like these guys in your tent next to the river that flows through Rusty's Family Block

This vehicle serves two purposes:
1. On a daily basis it acts as a bus service taking villagers and market goods into Popondetta. Later in the day it returns back to Kokoda.
2. For you our trekkers, to drive you around in Kokoda and also to act as an emergency in the event we have to drive you down to Popondetta/and or pick you up from Popondetta airport.

If anyone is having difficulty in delivering a baby; cut themselves badly etc they have to wait until the following morning when the PMV goes down to Popondetta, if not they simply die.
Then one of our guides mentioned he was up at the hospital one day for treatment himself and whilst waiting could hear a woman screaming her head off. When asked what was wrong, he was informed she was having problems delivering her baby. I asked if she finally delivered and the reply was that no, she died later that day. He said her screams still haunted him...how awful!
As a woman and mother of four, I could not imagine dying this way. The plan in 2005 was to save up and purchase for the hospital their own ambulance. My dream came true thanks to you our trekkers as the Kokoda Hospital now has an ambulance. I am now trying to think what our project will be for 2006 but I already have something in mind that I know Kokoda badly needs....I will keep you all in suspense until then!
Kokoda Trekking Ambulance handed over mid year to the Kokoda Memorial Hospital. The guide who told me the story above was the first to lie on the bed inside the ambulance. Hopefully no more women die from childbirth again in Kokoda or surrounding areas:

With Russell's health now not a concern, watch out for more updates as we continually try and grow and improve our services to you our trekkers in 2006.

KTL's goal for 2006, is to open up even more treks throughout PNG to give you our trekkers a chance to return and enjoy what PNG has to offer. Russell has taken this on himself to walk and grow these areas so he can rate them in comparison to the Kokoda Trail.
If we can bring even a few tourists to other areas of PNG, we can help the people in other provinces enjoy a better life through tourism and employ more unemployed youth who otherwise would not find work.
Russell seen here in Australia in the hinterlands of the Gold Coast, fit and well and looking forward to returning home to his family in Kokoda:
