The first group of the Friends have now completed the Kokoda Track though not without some casualties.
Fourteen started, however only twelve completed the track, two being lost to broken ankles.
The Track is NOT for the faint-hearted or unfit-it’s hard work-yet the rewards are enormous.
The scenery is fabulous, the people along the track warm, friendly and welcoming, the history tear rending and the MUD sticky and slippery-as the two casualties will testify.
More in the Trailwalker-out soon
Nearly a year’s training has come to fruition with the first group of the Friends about to head off to trek the Kokoda Track.
Developing fitness and a reliable method of dehydrating food has been high on the list of priorities along with reduction weight, both of the body corporate and the back packs.
Monday 12th May is the start date, stepping off the plane at Kokoda will be the start of a great experience for us and we hope the start of a number of great O/S adventures for the Friends.
