Everybody Back in Kathmandu, Dave and Nicky To Sign the Rum Doodle Summitters Board Tonight

By Dave Hahn - June 1st, 2008 9:11 am GMT -0700

Via Satellite Phone - LISTEN IN!

Hey, this is Dave Hahn calling from Kathmandu, the Hotel Tibet. Nicky and Greg Messner made it out of the Khumbu today, they flew from Lukla to Kathmand this morning, so our whole team is out. And we wrapped things up, myself and Justin Merle went to the Ministry of Tourism for our debriefing . .  paperwork on our permits, and then the coup de grace was late this afternoon myself and Mark Tucker met with Elizabeth Hawley, the record keeper of Himalayan climbing, big mountain climbing, and we had a nice visit with Elizabeth sitting down for an hour or hour and a half  to get together all the details of our climb and transmit to her all our facts and times and numbers and everything for her. That being done, looking forward dinner tonight at the Rum Doodle, Nicky is going to sign her name on the board there, we hope, and we'll call it good there on this expedition. I'll write in my letter to GreatOutdoors while I'm on my airplane flight in the next few days in order to bring you up to speed on  how the end of the trip came around, and the climb, there was a lot that happened in a short  time and I'll try to sort that out and make clear what I felt our accomplishments and the risks we were taking were there at the end. But all for now, I'll let you know if anything else goes on here before flight time. By now.
