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
