Everest base camp trek via Gokyo

Hey everyone! Currently living in Hawaii, from Southern California and Northern California, trekking the Everest region in mid May! And keeping the cost way down.
Looking for a trekking buddy/buddies for EBC via Gokyo…CLOCKWISE!
No guide, no porter.

Landing in Katmandu on May 15th, I have to load up on some more supplies on the 16th, then, with flights permitting, will fly to Lukla on the 17th or 18th.

Itinerary (not set in stone):

DAY 08: Thagnag Kharka – Cho-la Pass (5367 m/17,604 ft) – Dzongla (4830 m /15939 ft): 7 – 8 hrs
DAY 09: Dzongla to Lobuche (4940 m/16,207 ft): 2 – 3 hrs
DAY 10: Lobuche – Gorak Shep [5170 m/16,961ft] – Everest Base Camp [5364 m/17,594 ft] – Gorak Shep: 8 – 9 hrs
