POSF Team members seen here warming up. Some mudmen can be seen in the background who walked most of the way with their extra heads on ! If anyone has ever had the pleasure of fitting one of these on their own heads, you will appreciate their efforts today. They are really quite heavy as well, so even to carry them that distance is quite a feat !

With the exception of one mudman, the four others were also all over 50 years of age or as they say here in Papua New Guinea 'Lapun' !
