text: To Mokokchung. The milestones seem to have got mixed. As far as I could make them out they run as follows from Namkam Inspection Bungalow to Mokokchung - 11,78,79,79,8,82,81 (or 87), 85, 86. Obviously I missed two, which may or may not exist. Possibly I missed three, as the two 79s are only half a mile, or less, apart. Anyway they need adjusting. It is possible that 11 and 81 are really 77 and 84 partly blocked by moss so as to become illegible, while 8 may have been 80 once.
