Hola Radioman (Mark) !

Great work on the RR. Have been in from the start

I was going to put this up in Trip Planning, but thought I should go to the alpaca's mouth so to speak.

You seem to be impervious to altitude with your India / Himalayas ride and current venture. I know of a super fit mountaineering guy who got seriously ill at 13,000 ft in the Andries and had to call off his hike/ climb. How are you feeling ?

I know I have had problems sleeping, even in Reno, just being at 5000 ' ?? Being from the coast like you and rarely going higher than the mountains in BC, so just wondering ...... The mate I understand is good for energy but I need my ZZZZZ.

Enquiring minds wish to know. (no pressure)

Sleep well my friend, and may your ride be safe.

Hope to trace your path some day.
Logan

Logan - have read a bunch about Altitude and the best I can say is that in India I did use Diamox for a few days as we approached the 11,000-13,000 foot level. But just for a few days then off it. The other real big thing is hydration. Drinking tons of water ...... This helps the body to Acclimatize. you also need to pee often

I feel really good at the Altitude. Have had a few nights were I did not sleep great, and sometimes dreams are a bit strange. Couple nights ago I had a terrible time getting any sleep, but I had not had any Mate de Coco or anything else like coffee .....so I just do not really know what it was. Usually I am a great sleeper :)

Hope that helps. And Altitude sickness is a serious thing to consider. I know that most of the hotels here have some type of Oxygen in case people are having issues.

Radioman needs Red Bull sponsorship so we can watch live streaming of his ride. #redbullradioman Then his fans wouldn't have to wait.
