Kokoda Trek for Choppers 2013 – Day 1 The Trek Begins

After a casual dinner and a few beers we had a great night’s sleep at the Stamford last night, and we’re ready to begin our adventure!

We met Zak, James and Ian at the airport this morning. Wonderful to see Zak come along after his family lost their house in the Springwood fires this week. It will be an emotional journey for this young man…

We are all speculating about how much weight we will lose on the track, maybe we’ll get some before and after shots!

Lots of laughter here at the airport, plenty of light hearted banter and discussion about what we might encounter. I wonder if what we will experience will match our expectations…time will tell 🙂

So signing out now from Australia, catch you on the other side!
