Great job on the photos. I used to frequently travel on trucks and motorcycle from Lae to Mt. Hagen in the early/mid 70's. The views from the Kassam are exactly as I remember them. The trucks were a slow climb, but on my bike I could get to Kainantu fairly quickly.

HI Elsa......( Van H...?),
I think it is Barbara Jeffcot you are thinking of. The Gusap and Nadzab Picnic Races finished many years ago.

Hi Elsa,
The Gusap Horse races have finished many years ago including the polo crosse competitions, however as I understand it, each year the Ramu Beef people at Leron Ranch do organize a small Rodeo etc. for the riders in the Markham valley.
The Jeffcots have sold their cattle ranch at Dumpu to Madang Butchery. This was again purchased by Ramu Sugar Limited which now owns probably the biggest cattle business in PNG.
I hope this enlightens you a little.
cheerio etc.

I reckon Ramu's beef ranks amongst the best in the world (my opinion) however, before Ramu can export it must still try as best as it can to fill the overflowing orders from within the country itself.
