There is nothing more rewarding than sharing experiences with others and learning what drives a person to do incredible challenges such as the Kokoda Trail. There is no better place to do that other than to be with the person. A moment you may only experience once in a life time. A moment where you share, feel and rely on support for guidance to overcome physical and emotional boundaries. The rewards can only be explained by what you have accomplished mentally and physically in life. Pat enjoys sharing the War history with trekkers.
