Kokoda Trip

I have planned a trip to do the Kokoda trail with 2 mates, we worked together underground in a small town in the gold fields. We live in different states now, but always have a good laugh when we talk to each other, we are about to get our itinerary for the training we should do for the trip.
It’s a 10-day Track History Tour
We meet our Trek leader and he will give a short presentation covering safety, culture, and expectations and check we have what we need.

I’m excited for the experience and journey. Especially with two of my good mates it will be fun. It’s always good to pick up the phone and try to stay in contact with friends and family. Sometimes I get caught up in my own life because I’m always busy, but it’s a great feeling to call and talk about anything you want it might be just what you need, or they may need. Just talking to someone about anything good or bad can make the difference to your day. Stay tuned for when the training begins.
