Mt. Everest: Dave Hahn Checks in

Elevation: 17,575'

Hi, This is Dave Hahn calling from Mt. Everest Base Camp, Nepal

We are still in our waiting game.  Conditions appear to have calmed down as predicted today and we hope tomorrow.  There are teams posed at the South Col tonight, including a team of Sherpa looking to fix the route to the summit tomorrow.  That would be pretty significant, obviously.  We are rooting for those guys and hoping they get good weather.  But still, this particular weather window is a little too short and a little too busy with people for us.  So we are biding our time here and looking very carefully at the forecast for better weather in a few more days.  That requires us to be down here at the base of the mountain a few days longer.  So, we are just biding our time.  We are exercising and going hiking each day, playing games and trying to keep from going crazy.  We are looking forward better conditions in a few days and a summit bid.

Dave and Team,  we wish you good luck in finding a weather window.  Better luck next year in the horseshoe tournament.  Say hello to everyone for us.  Just some updated news in the world - the Lakers are down 2-0 to the Thunder, the Red Sox won the World Series, and a man walked on the moon. I know you have been gone for awhile, so just wanted to make sure you had the latest.  BE SAFE and HAVE FUN. Bill and Sara McGahan
