Hell, I'll try anything.
I smoke, but it always hits me bad, regardless. Like my physical and mental screws have been turned down low.
I love it, but I need to spend some time 'up high' before I feel unhandicapped.
Thanks for the post.

The drinking water is huge part of feeling good. Period. No matter what altitude your at. One thing that hasn't been said is
start drinking water NOW, before you leave. Lots of it. Taking a pee every hour at least. That way your body will be
hydrated BEFORE you leave on your trip. That way you can concentrate on keeping it hydrated, not starting from scratch
and trying to play catch up,hydration wise, on the road. Which is hard enough to do on a bike. Oh yeah, enjoy the trip
there is some beautiful country in New Mexico.

Well I arrived in Albuququere todayl. Isolated thunder shower for tomorrow with 18mph winds. Long hot ride from NW Louisiana. Drank as much water as I could. I feel a shortness of breath with some exertion. Going to do the st. Jemez trail tomorrow if weather permits. The Sangre De Christo Mountains are covered in fog and light rain falling. I am not afraid of rain but fog and wind is not good. Friday will be a better day. The DR650se is a great bike a little tall for me but it just keeps me on the cautionary side when mounting and dismounting and placing my feet down.
