My friend Dru and I began thinking about a trek 11 years ago after a wonderful trek on the Inca trail. 8 years ago of Peak Promotions told me he could arrange it. Finally 2 years ago we began planning several other friends said they would like to join us. Finally last April our group of 8 sends our deposit to Peak Promotion and we all began serious training. Suddenly it was time to fly Kathmandu October 28.
