This morning we said goodbye to trek 700 when they left Owers' Corner to head down to Ua'Ule Creek to spend the night. Trekkers in this group include two doctors:
1. Dr. Jacqueline Marks
2. Dr. Matthew Rowe
3. David Cameron
There was supposed to be three brothers also on this trek but at the last minute pulled out due to one of them falling ill and the other two brothers not wanting to walk without him.15/08/2011 at 4:03 am #105686
On the way to Owers' Corner we stopped off at McDonalds where another photo opportunity presented itself:

It was soon time to bid farewell to Trek 700 as they left Owers' Corner to head off on the trek but not before Shane spoke to his trekkers and they lined up again to have their photographs taken with their personal porters:

Nice pics! GOOD LUCK DAD – Have a great hike16/08/2011 at 9:27 am #105697
Trekkers as planned spent last night at Ua'Ule Creek and today called in whilst on the move heading to Naoro Village where they will spend the night. Shane said everyone is doing extremely well and they are now talking about getting out a day early and going rafting down the Mamba river. Am assuming some of their porters are putting thoughts into their heads!

Oops, have been updating our 'Facebook' page but seems have forgotten to update this one:
Trekkers spent last night at Naduri and today will head to Isurava before walking off the track tomorrow into Kokoda.
After leaving Ua'Ule Creek they headed to Naoro and then onto Manari choosing to skip Efogi and reach Naduri. Everyone continues to do well.

Congratulations to trek 700 as they walked off the track today into Kokoda and at the moment are relaxing around the bar at Orohaven Kokoda Retreat. David did it a bit tougher then the other two and is very excited it seems and was hugging the boys. Tomorrow they will no doubt have a very relaxing day in Kokoda before heading back into town on Monday.
A few minutes ago I received word that a bridge crossing is out so will now have to think how I am going to get them in from Kokoda.
