Hey, GreatOutdoors, this is Dave, and I'm at Advanced Base Camp. I know the last time I talked to you I was at the Balcony and looking to be down early and easy . . . transmission failure . . . help and boy we didn't get down here to Advanced Base Camp until at least 10:00 in the evening. I'm totally spent right now. My gear is soaking wet, half of it is missing and I feel beat to pieces. Yesterday ended up a very hard day, a long day obviously. And well, it was difficult for me to, well, it turned out to be impossible for me to pull out the phone. I'll try and let you know in the next couple calls what went on, and some of it's still going on. And try and bring you up to speed. See if I can get myself up to speed. I'd love to be down to Base Camp now and get more comfortable, but don't know if it's going to happen today. I'm pretty far behind the curve and the Icefall is heating up. So I might have to give it a miss for today and get down there tomorrow. All for now. And as I say, I'll be in touch and let you know what's gone on.
