He was supposed to have another guy with him but sadly he had to pull out just a few days ago. Tonight he will share the campsite with our sub-contract company who also commenced today from Owers’ Corner and are in Ioribaiwa tonight.

Update 19th July 2018

Trek 1124: This trek is now at Menari having left Ioribaiwa early this morning. Tomorrow they head to Naduri so a super fast trek this one. Its being led by Ramsy Idau who won our last Kokoda Challenge Race. According to Ramsy, they are all ok despite the punishing pace.

Trek 1124: This trek is at Naduri tonight and tomorrow will head to Alola, another huge day! All are ok and continue to do well.

Update 21st July 2018

Trek 1124: Ramsy just called to say they have now reached Alola Village and tomorrow as planned they will walk off the track and into Kokoda. Ramsy estimates 1:30-2pm they will reach Kokoda. Tomorrow think of them walking from Alola and into Isurava Memorial before heading for the finish line in Kokoda. Barney must be nailing it as there was talk of continuing so he could attend the church service in Kokoda tomorrow following his successful trek.
