Hey, this is Dave Hahn calling in from 17,000’ we made it up today, a better than expected day.  It didn’t start out too good but we made good use of it. We left 14,000’ at 1:30 in the afternoon and got up here at 17,000’ at 9 PM, which was a little bit late but we managed to get all buttoned down before the storm started again. All are doing well at 17,000’ and now we’re ready to get lucky up here.
