Trek 1168: Message from Harold regarding evening of 21st September: ‘Hi Boss Meri, we got to Agulogo around 2:30pm. All trekkers and porters are doing fine. We got into camp in time then it started raining. Mud is not much of a problem as the track is pretty dry. Tomorrow we are heading for the half way point of Efogi but not before we cross Brown River and pass through Menari Village on our way up to Brigade Hill. Cheers Harold’ unquote. So think of them today out in the hot sun experiencing all that the Kokoda Trail offers as they make their way to Efogi for the night.
