Update 25th August 2018

Trek 1130: Trekkers are now at Dump 1 and tomorrow will head for Isurava Memorial for the night. Ivan called and said they are all ok and doing well. He said its still wet and slippery. Think of them tomorrow as they make their way along the track.
Update 28th August 2018
Trek 1130: This group have now reached Isurava Memorial. Today the track has been dry according to Ivan. He said they arrived at their destination around 2pm and have now decided to walk off the track tomorrow instead of the next day. Apparently they are both happy and still enjoying their Kokoda experience.
Update 29th August 2018
Trek 1130: I could sense the excitement today as Ivan contacted me saying they are presently at Deniki and on their way off the track. Just look at the trekkers faces, do they look HAPPY or WHAT???
