Its 2 years today that we first landed in PNG to walk Kokoda. Last weekend I found the old newspaper clipping that sparked my interest in the walk. I'd been looking at this atricle for a few years and thinking, "that would be something to do". It wasnt til I re-read it last week that I realised Gail was mentioned in the article and that it was about a guy who walked the track with her company. How strange that I ended up walking the track with Kokoda Trekking all those years later.11/07/2011 at 2:53 am #105534Saloo8Member
Sounds like it might be time to go back….:-)09/08/2011 at 7:57 am #105664WazaMember
Just read a reply to your initial comment and wondered where the newspaper was from, as I praised Gail in a magazine article about my trip in 2005.

Hi Waza. Sorry it s only taken me months to answer this. It was a local newspaper from up around Port MacQuarie. I found it when we were in Timber Town .03/04/2012 at 5:19 am #106079WazaMember
How interesting, it would seem that it was an article done on my trek in '05 in the then Pictorial and yes I mentioned Gail in very glowing terms and Gail even took an add in the feature. It would be interesting to see a scan or photo of the article, which turned out to be 4 pages with photos.
PS I'm off to trek again on ANZAC Day, this time walking North and with Gail of course!
