I've been twice and found adapting to the altitude takes a few days. It's not easy for me. Doesn't necessarily equate to fitness level either, some folk just find it easier. Hope you are one of those Stu !
If I could make a suggestion seriously though .. you guys have to hit the ground running, whereas I will have been there a week, trying to get used to it. I think we need 2-3 litres of water a day (if you don't drink that much already) and suggest you look into a course of junior aspirin prior to the flight - you 'll find recommendations on this on the anti-DVT web pages. I have found these two simple things have helped me a lot under similar circumstances. If you've not tried it, might be worth a go ?
You'll both be in better shape than me on a bike anyway
Kinger, glad to hear you are coming! Best advice is to allow a day or 2 at 5,000 ft. elevation (Denver, Golden) before rushing up to the higher mountain elevations. Then, plenty of water. Humidity is 12-18% and will dry you out. No mold here. Limit beer intake to 3 liters first day.
Hello All Yeti fan newbie here. I have had an ARC for quite a while and we just got a new/used AS-X for my son. We are signed up for the meet and are looking forward to it, driving out from Michigan and going to Moab first. Pete
