Hi Melissa, all I know about altitude is that I lived in arizona for 25 years. I was a flatlander for a few years and slowly made my way up to flagstaff 7000 ft. and my son was a fireman at the grandcanyon. Every time I moved a little higher it took me a few days to a week to get used to the elphant on my chest. That's when I was healthy. I've flown in Helicopters and two seaters and 747's. I never had a problem. even since I got sick. All I can say is it seems to be about 50/50 on here with people getting sick or not. That's one thing about this disease it is an equal opportunity attacker. . You know there are people on here that have lived with a rash every day for years and I have never had one to speak of. I don't see any thing wrong with checking with your dr. If it helps you relax that's half the battle. You want to go and have a great time so do what you have to do to put your mind at ease.
I just hope you get there and have a blast! Let us know how it goes
Hi Bill! Wow that's cool. Yeah I lived right at the base of the mountain. I worked for the city of flagstaff. You know where you come into town there is a huge library on one side of the street and city hall on the other? That's where I met my husband we both worked for the city. You are right I have lived in oklahoma for the past three years. We lived up by Prescott when my hubby past away. I tried to hold on as long as I could but making payments got hard so I sold my place and bought a place here for cash. Az. is my home though. My hubby is buried at the veteran cemetary north of phoenix. My parents live in tempe, my oldest brother owns a paint company in apache junction. If your son ever needs a painter lol. and my other bro lives in Mesa. My son was working as a firefighter/emt at the Grand canyon airport on 9/11. I used to go up there because since he worked there I got to fly the canyon for free which is the only way I could afford it. I actually have a daughter named Sedona. NAU is a great place to go to school. There were a lot of decent kids when I lived there. Hey thanks for the stroll down memory lane. If this tranplant happens I'm going back and doing some climbing.
Melissa I didn't mean to take up the board. I got carried away. I hope you have a great time.
love ya guys
