Update 22nd June 2018
Trek 1119: made up of: Anna Burton; Peter Lovett; Todd Leydecker and Oliver Cox. They are presently making their way to their destination for tonight. Trekkers from our previous two treks, Trek 1117 & 1118 were flown back in Port Moresby on the same charter. Some have flown home and a few are spending another night in Port Moresby.
Trek 1119: Gary Juary (Guide) on this trek just called to say they have stopped at Deniki for the night. Seems everyone did well today and at the moment are just relaxing around the guesthouse area. A big group of boys on this trek so they should not have any problems as some were supposed to fly in on our charter today but due to weight could not get on. Turns out they have decided to tag along with Gary’s group for ticket money. Tomorrow the plan is to stop at Alola for the night. Trekkers will no doubt look back towards Kokoda and ask themselve how far they have come today.
Update 23rd June 2018
Trek 1119: This trek are now at Alola Village for the night and everyone is doing just fine according to Gary who phoned a short time ago. He said they reached the village around 2pm this afternoon. A big day ahead of them tomorrow as their aim is Dump 1. Earlier today they were at one of the highlights of the track, Isurava Memorial. Please note: photographs posted whilst they are out on the track is from our library stock. Their photographs will be posted once our camera arrives back to our base in Port Moresby.
