Autumn Everest 2001: Hungarian Everest - Lhotse Expedition (2001) 

The radio channels are hissing and sizzling between ABC, base camp, and Spaltni. Konyi's guys can't expect up or down, whether the weather is deciding for us or against us. Porters reached base camp with fresh vegetables. they're our last chance to get a message to our co-ordination officer/deputy squatting in Kharta for when we should request the yaks. Are the air-ticket bookings changeable? Extra jeep - and how much does that cost? Paskal Hekto - "I ask you to get in touch with first Kathmandu, then Budapest, then with the Lord God... All these are strolling through the ether. Round noon they toddled down to sort these out. Round half past two they pottered into base camp - after me, if not quite the deluge then a bit of snow. Miki and Konyi fled for cover. In base camp we sort out what paperwork there was and swear the snow. We put our trust in both. (David)
