Hey RMI, this is Dave Hahn, Seth Waterfall and Dan Johnson.  We’re up at Camp 1, and we came up this morning through the Ice Fall in about five hours time.  Good moving and great conditions today, just a beautiful morning.  And coming into Camp 1, it seemed like we were on a different planet than when we were last here and it was snowing so hard and so cloudy and cold.  So today we just had a nice calm, sunny day at Camp 1.  Rested and relaxed, drank a bunch of water.  And we’re a little bit excited because we’re moving up to Camp 2 tomorrow.  Our Sherpa team established Camp 2 yesterday and built it up.  Yubaraj and Lam Babu spent the night up there.  It’s about dinner time now.  The clouds were starting to creep in.  Late afternoon clouds, not bad weather.  Later this evening we expect them to roll right back out again.  So everything is going well on our second rotation.  We’re hoping to be up here for about a week this time.  A little bit longer. But we’ve been in touch with Mark Tucker down at Basecamp and everything seems to be going well.  All for now, bye.
