Hey this is Dave Hahn, and I'm calling from Pangboche, one of the villages we came through on the way in about 2 months ago. At 13,000 feet it's roughly 16,000 feet less than we were two days ago. We're dropping fast. We left Base Camp this morning, base camp was coming down around us, Everest season is over, and mass exodus, everybody is heading down valley. I walked with Jangbu and Mark Tucker down valley today, and Nicky and Greg Messner walked together to Pheriche, the village just before Pangboche. Should take us about three days to get out of the Khumbu Valley and get back to Kathmandu. But life is already way, way, way more comfortable and easier. Sure was nice getting a full night's sleep at base camp last night very nice after days up on the mountain. So everything is getting easier, going in the right direction . . . We'll keep you informed on how the walk goes. Bye for now.
