Dan called with a dispatch at 5:15 PM on May 6th:

 "Hey everyone! This is Dan from Team 1 calling in.

We just finished caching around Windy Corner and are now on our way back down to Camp 2 at 11,000 ft.  There looks to be some inclement weather coming in so we are very happy to have made the cache.  Hopefully we will be making the move up to Camp 3 at 14,200 ft tomorrow, as long as the weather cooperates.  Well sorry I can't talk longer but we've got to keep moving so we can get back to camp before the clouds roll in!"

Hi Team 1. I'm UK based and am on Team 3 and i've been checking how you're all doing. Looks like you're all doing good. Looking forward to being out there too and tucking into the Monkey Pasta in a week or so.
Go well !
