Traveling in the summer months I only had one issue with elevation and that was with the refrigerator running on propane. I keep on getting an warning alert and after checking the manual found it was due to the elevation. Ended up turning it off when on the road. Worked fine with electric at the campgrounds. When returned to lower elevations ran fine. Regarding cooking = either wasn't paying attention or didn't notice much difference in cooking.

Used to do a fair amount of mountain climbing (ran a backpacking store for a number of years) which included camping at elevations above 10,000'. And I know first hand the effects of high altitude sickness. Fly from home at 500' to the mountains, then take a helicopter up to over 12,000 for skiing, all in one day, will bring on a headache that will never be forgotten!

There are good thoughts brought forward to consider, and to remember the conventional wisdom surrounding the acclimation to higher altitudes is to do it in stages and give you body time to adapt. Spend a day at 5,000', then move up to 6-7.000' for a day, etc. (you get the idea). For most people the body adapts wonderfully well.
