Trek 862 - Trek Completed
Posted 28 February 2012 - 09:09 PM
When I arrived they were both awake and ready to move off and everything went ahead as planned and around 6:30 (check the pic below) they entered the boarding lounge to wait for their flight to Kokoda.
Trekkers were picked up at the Girua Airport, Popondetta and after a short time in the centre of town they were driven to Kokoda. Lunch I believe was had at Orohaven Kokoda Retreat before the group led by Kingsley Boropi headed off on the track.
Kingsley contacted me later today to say they their original destination of Deniki had to be cancelled as they heard most of the buildings were damaged due to a recent storm.
So tonight they are at Hoi and tomorrow they will have a tough walk up as they climb, climb, climb - up up up to Isurava.

He did not say where they planned on reaching tonight but am assuming it will be Templeton's area. Everyone is doing just great.

Everyone in the group continue to do well.
Tomorrow night the plan is to reach Agulogo.

He remarked a couple of times how the boys have been really looking after them and seemed really happy with their progress but just a tough time especially today!

Listening to Ken, its a credit to him that he completed his trek as he said on day 5 without the help of his porter, Dudley Bubura, he would not have made it to Owers' Corner.
So today there huge smiles all round as our KTL boys joined with them in celebration for getting their two trekkers safely to the finish line. As for Ken and his son, well they were just SO HAPPY!!!
