Trekkers looked excited and ready for the adventure that lay ahead of them.

It was soon time to bid our farewell but not before a minutes silence for Wallace Lemeki who passed away on the 3rd February 2013. Wallace was such a bit part of our trekking family and is sadly missed by everyone. He always led out an Anzac trek but sadly not this year! RIP Wallace.

Bye bye trek 877. This trek is led by Arnold Jinga who said today he is on his 103rd trek across the Kokoda Track.
Heard later today that the group reached Goodwater campsite and that all were ok. One of the guys apparently vomited a few times but he put it down to few too many yesterday when at Loloata Dive Resort.

Both of our treks, 847 & 877 have now reached Ioribaiwa Village where they will spend the night. Shane phoned in around 6pm to say they had all reached the village and that everyone was ok and doing well. Mark in Arnold's trek requested a personal porter who has now caught up with the group. Tomorrow the group have a tough climb ahead of them as they head up Maguli Range and pass through Naoro Village then down to Agulogo for the night.

This trek has now reached Naoro Village where they are spending the night. I heard from Arnold today from Maguli Range saying they were all going ok. The plan was to head on down to Agulogo but he decided to pull them up at Naoro where they would rest for the night before heading off to the half way point of Efogi tomorrow.

Trekkers had a big day today as they walked from Naoro Village to Efogi where they are spending the night. Tomorrow they will restock with food supplies which were flown in on Tuesday by charter before heading off to 1900/Myola Junction.
One porter Luana is sick but trekkers and the other porters are ok.

This group arrived at 1900/Myola Junction earlier today where they are spending the night. All trekkers in this group are doing well. Tomorrow they will head to Eora Creek. They are on the home run now so no doubt looking forward to the finish line in Kokoda.

Trekkers have now reached Isurava Village where they are spending their last night on the track. Tomorrow they will walk out into Kokoda and no doubt will be pretty pleased with themselves.
Earlier today they passed through Isurava Memorial before heading down to Isurava Village for the night. Isurava is always the highlight of a trek so no doubt today trekkers were blown away when they walked around the corner from Alola into this area as besides the history of what happened there, the placement of the monument has such beautiful views.

Congratulations are in order as this group walked off the track into Kokoda earlier today. At the present time they are relaxing at our base in Kokoda. Tomorrow they will fly back into Port Moresby.
Well done everyone!
You can picture them walking towards the archway in Kokoda. The photograph below is of another group but it will give you an idea of the photo opportunity as they finished their successful trek.
