All members are back in ABC (advance base camp) safe and sound! Today our yaks
will arrive in ABC and tomorrow they will carry everything down to BC. The
Sherpa's are still working very hard to carry camp 1 down today.
The plan is to leave Base Camp on the 28th. It looks like we are the most
successful team on the North side this year, 11 members and 13 Sherpa's

This is just a small message to tell everybody that all of the team is fine.
Today most of the team arrived in ABC. Only Yuan and Marlies and their four
Sherpa's are still on the North Col. They are very tired and needed some extra
time to get down, but are fine and healthy and will arrive in ABC tomorrow.
So all nine members and ten Sherpa's summited on the 23rd and two members and
two Sherpa's on the 22nd. When I got all the stories together I will put a
more detailed summit list.
