Hi Ron,

I guess after being home for over a week now and fully recovered I thought I would drop you an email to say thank you for everything you did. It was a life long dream to do Kokoda and to now sit back and look back at what I have achieved is an amazing feeling.

Words cannot express how grateful I am to you in helping me achieving that goal.  But I will try so to you I thank you for your guidance, leadership, mateship and most important your knowledge. Without that my experience would not have been the same. I have brought back many memories and stories that I will keep for the rest of my life. Everyday with your stories and knowledge of the trek made the trip that extra bit rewarding I could not have asked for a better leader you certainly took me back to 1942.

There are two things I would like to ask of you;

1. Could you please tell me the three books you recommend about the Trail
2. Could I please get the songs that the porters sang.

Regards

Spiro
