Today saw them picked up and driven to the airport for the flight to Kokoda down for an 8am departure.
Everything went according to schedule and not too long afterwards they arrived in Kokoda. After a short break at our base for morning tea, the group walked up to the Kokoda Station to the war museum. Around 11:30am they walked under the archway and onto the Kokoda Track.
At 1pm they had reached Kovelo Village and now an hour or so later they are settling into Hoi campsite where they will spend the night.
Tomorrow they will start their climb up to Deniki and face their first real challenge as they head to Isurava Village and onto Isurava Memorial where they will spend the night.
From what I have heard, its hot and sunny over the other side quite the opposite of Port Moresby as they dodged the rain last night and overcast morning as they prepared for their flight.
Trekkers in this group include:
- Paul Hangan
- Indiana Hangan
- Henry Hangan
- Ezekiel Hangan
- Noah Hangan
