Jay reports 10/26
October 26 Dispatch -This is Jay Reilly calling you from Ama Dablam Base
Camp, which we are actually leaving today (October 27th), and we're heading
down to the nearby village of Pangboche, where we start our trek back to
Kathmandu. We had word from Group 4 yesterday, they were safe in Camp 1 as of
last night, and they'll be making their way down to Base Camp early this
morning in order to pack and load their equipment onto the yaks so they too
can move out of Base Camp. We had a small snowstorm yesterday, which left
about 2 1/2 centimeters of snow on the ground. Last night was just the most
incredible night, there was a full moon and, with fresh snow on the ground, it
was bright enough to read by at 10 o'clock in the evening. Anyway, we just
wanted to let you know that we are leaving Base Camp today, starting our trek
back to Kathmandu, and we wanted to thank you all very much for your support
and coverage of the SummitClimb.com 2004 Ama Dablam Expedition. So, from all
of us, thanks again and we hope to see you soon!
