My son Michael Taft walked the trail pretty much this time last year & recorded the porters singing & playing ukelale around the campfire. He promised to send a copy back & it will be coming soon! I was listening today to this wonderful music & as my Dad is being buried in a few days thought we would play this music at his funeral.He wasn't on The Track but in a plantation in New Britain & was always grateful for the help of the Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels.

Hi Sue, yes remember Michael from his trek last year.  What a wonderful gesture to play the music at your father's funeral.  Sorry to hear of his passing.

Just wondering if you have DVD's of the Porters and Guides singing, they were fantastic. I will try and get a Ukelalae to donate when I come back next year.

Regards

Warren
