We decided to leave on a Wednesday night, instead of a Thursday morning, because of the length of the trip. We wanted to be in Banaue in the morning, not afternoon. There were six of us on this trip: Rodel and Ly Anne, Monica, Jovit, Butch (my niece) and myself. We also had two drivers for the van, Neri and Mario, something that did not mean much.
