We decided that rather than taking the 16 hour bus ride from Kathmandu to Jiri (the start of our big walk), we would rent a van and driver to transport us.  It cut 4 hours off the travel time.  Left to right are: The Driver, Oren, Chris, Scott, Carla and Beth.  We had heard rumours of Maoist rebels in the area of Jiri, so we decided there was safety in numbers.  We decided the 6 of us would stick together for the first 3 days.
