Mid afternoon the others in her group arrived and it was decided to pick them up at 4:30 to take them to the Royal Papua Yacht Club.
Despite the rain, this went ahead as planned and trekkers were dropped off with a promise to pick them up at 8pm to return them to their accommodation in readiness of a trek briefing and an early night due to their departure today to Kokoda.
This morning trekkers were at the airport to book in at 7am and were on the flight not long after 8am. After a short break for morning tea in Kokoda, trekkers walked up to the Kokoda Station to look around the museum area before commencing their trek.
Around 11:30am they walked through the Kokoda Archway and on to the track making Kovelo Village before 1pm and their final destination of Hoi Village an hour or so later.
Apparently it was a hot day in Kokoda and trekkers felt the heat as they made their way up the track.
Trekkers in this group include:
- Dennis Briggs
- Linda Briggs
- Maureen Wilkinson
- Glenn Bell
- Terence Bell
- Matt Henderson
