EBC & Three Passes

I’ll be in Kathmandu on March 27th. Fly to Lukla on March 30. The same day I will start the trek.
I plan to do this hike in max 19 days including one acclimatization day in Namche Bazar, one day in Chukhung, and one day in Gokyo.
This is my first time in Nepal so instead of going solo I’m looking for a partner.
I have some experience with high altitudes (this year I did Santa Cruz in Cordillera Blanca, Huayhuash Circuit and JMT).
Im thinking about hiring a porter/guide ($20 a day to share) that can carry 15 kg of stuff.
After Three Passes I’m going to walk to Phaplu and take a bus or Jeep to Kathmandu.
(Any delays I’m going to fly back to Kathmandu).

I’m 64, and still in good shape (hiking 3-4 months a year). I’m from Poland but a long time ago I settled in US.
