It was soon time to bid our farewell to trek 895 as they walked off towards Goldie River but not before a minutes silence for Wallace Lemeki who sadly passed away on the 3rd February.

Goodbye trek 895.
The group were heading to Ua'Ule Creek but we have not heard if they ended up there or stopped at Goodwater for the night. One trekker had a pair of shoes that only made it to Goodwater when a request came in to purchase a pair of size 8 shoes and run them up to Owers' Corner.
This was done but before we arrived back up at Sogeri, another message came through saying Carrie needed a personal porter. Rather than return to Port Moresby, I was able to organise Eric Uwea from Sogeri to walk in and catch up with the group.

Trekkers have now reached Efogi where they will spend the night. Well done everyone for reaching the half way point, its all down hill from here (joking).
According to Trevor, everyone is ok and enjoying their jungle experience.

Trekkers have now reached Alola Village where they are spending the night. Arnold said lots of mud around along with rain, so no doubt on Anzac Day 2013 trekkers will get a taste of what it was like for our diggers during the Kokoda Campaign.
All trekkers continue to do well.
A message from Kathleen Lynch : A big hello to my children, Pete, Scott and Abbey. I am doing just fine, love you and cannot wait to see you all, love Mum
