Dave Prepares to Head Down Valley as Expedition Comes to a Close

By Dave Hahn - May 28th, 2010 9:15 am GMT -0700

Via Satellite Phone - LISTEN IN!

This is Dave and I’m still at Everest base camp. Myself and Leif got down yesterday. Our Sherpas just about have our whole load down the mountain now. . . . . walking toward base camp . . . lower part of the ice fall . . . .not in any danger any more. When they get here we’re going to bug out and head down valley. I haven’t been down valley all season so it will be a thrill to walk down and sleep in Pheriche tonight. The expedition is coming to a close. The weather is still nice today, didn’t snow on us today the way it had been the last couple of days but there are a lot of clouds in the sky in mid afternoon and it does seem like the season is starting to change a little bit, getting closer to the monsoon and less like climbing season.. The next few days we'll be on the trail heading down toward Lukla and eventually Kathmandu . . . . (satellite transmission fails).

Thanks!

Thanks Great Outdoors.com for having this satellite phone coverage of Everest each season. Following blogs and video blogs is great, but being able to hear a voice every day tell what is going on is an extra nice touch for someone like me who will never be able to experience a trek to Everest Base Camp or especially climb any mountain, thanks so much for making this possible! Thanks also to Dave Hahn for taking the time to do the satellite phone calls and congratulations for summit #12! PS: To Dave, I hope you start writing some books, you’re a great storyteller and do a fantastic job putting your stories into words! Reading your writing on the computer is great, but there’s nothing like being able to settle in with a good book about mountains. Thanks again Great Outdoors.com and Dave Hahn!
