A quick Google search will reveal the answer. Lifehacker had an article back on 4.8.2014 that worked perfectly for me. I didn't have 6000 notes, but I had over 1000 and they all came over. It was a little work but well worth it the end.
I finally got sick of waiting for this to be fixed and went over to the "dark side" and am now using OneNote. Much happier that it can do what I need it to. Really sad I had to ditch Evernote, but I can't wait for them to get this fixed.
