The next in line to get his photograph taken was Chris Orimba. Chris walks often and does a good job as a personal porter.21/04/2013 at 10:36 am #106384
Peskol Kageni is one of our fittest porters who always enters our Kokoda Challenge Races. He also entered a cycling race last year from the coast to Kokoda and came second overall.

Thanks so much for the progress reports. Tracking positions on the map. So great to see all the boys smiling faces. Weather looks good. Boys are so proud of you Rodney. Can't wait to hear all the adventure stories. XXXXX22/04/2013 at 3:03 pm #106314
Trekkers have now reached Ioribaiwa where they are spending the night. Am pretty sure they will have lots of company as another trek one day ahead of this group, commented to me from Maguli Range earlier this morning that he could not believe how many people he had passed today.
In fact, he described it as Moses leading the people out of Israel.
From now on the congestion should ease up as the majority of people would be heading towards Owers' Corner to be picked up on the 24th.
Wayne said everyone is doing ok.

Plan a) today was to reach Naoro Village, Plan B) was to pass through Naoro and head down to Agulogo for the night.
Wayne assured me they were all having a lot of fun. He mentioned that one of the trekkers when the others complained about the climbing would instruct them to just put one foot after the other and keep walking, telling them not to ask too many questions.
It seems last night they were dancing to music supplied by Hobert Keke.

This trek has now reached 1900/Myola Junction where they are spending the night. Tomorrow they plan on reaching Alola Village or may stop at Eora Creek depending on how the group is going.
According to Wayne, its WET WET WET, and MUDDY MUDDY MUDDY!!! and everything is wet.
No doubt when they all return they will have lots of stories to tell. Today is Anzac Day so no doubt they may be recalling how tough it must have been in 1942 for our diggers. Lest We Forget
Earlier today they walked through Naduri Village refer photograph below.

Congratulations are in order as trekkers walked off the track earlier today and spent the afternoon relaxing at Orohaven with their guide and porters. They will fly back into Port Moresby tomorrow morning. Well done everyone from all of us here at Kokoda Trekking. Picture them this morning as they would have walked through the archway. Photographs will follow tomorrow.
