Well I suppose we should be hoping she does... but since you have the answer, I'm thinking maybe a little more time on the job market might yield a more lucrative offer.

Does she know we're talking about her? Bess, that is.

Nope. Gracie is at our place. Possum Lodge is located on the Havilland Shores Road along Havilland Bay of Lake Superior. Possum was a name I stole from my older brother. A man I truly admired and loved. He used "Possum" as his nom de plume when he wrote poetry. Mario had Possum Lodge long before they took that name for the Red Green Show.

I wish Carter would check in. He knows a bunch about this forat hand from spending so much time in Gunnison. When we talked back in July - he indicated the speed of the climb has a lot to do with it - just as the article points out. Working your way up slowly is most likely the mutant way.

Thanks for the info Barb. I talked to Ed the other day and Jackie has had a problem before. I think they are going to aclimitize a bit along the way.
Taking a medication like over-the-counter Bonine (for motion sickness) can also help. A physician friend recommended it for Kate's oldest son when he had a constant headache while at our mountain home in New Mexico. (It sits at 7,000'.) He took Bonine and it helped.

R U an RV Mutant too?

We were at 8500 in Santa Fe NM for a week. We just walked slower, and have been practicing that ever since.
Will be at North Rim on 13/14.
Yippecayeyay!

Larry keeps those oxygen bottles, under his dr approval.

But also those bracelets they sell for sea sickness will also help with altitude sickness...

Sounds like most everyone has made a gradual change in altitude. Unless you have a severe reaction to the higher altitude you should be ok. If you had a severe problem you would know about it at or above 5000 ft. Taking a slow (three day or more) change and everything should be ok. I have been at 7700 ft for two months and spent a day last week above 11,000 ft with no problems.
Having said that if you experience headaches, nausea, extreme shortness of breath or difficulty breathing with normal exertion you need to get down to a lower altitude.
Hope everyone does OK, just take it easy for the first few days and have a great time.
I have a family member not doing well, so I'm leaving for home this morning.

Jim we truly hate your having to return while it's still hot. Hope everything goes good for you and family.

Mary and I were kicking around surprising ya'll at Gunnison by dropping by after the GC. Prayers for you and family!
