Man, the first time out in the mountians was a total learning expierence for me. We packed in and setu up a bivy/base camp to hunt out of. Some of the roughes terrain That you cant explain only expierence. I cant wait to get back and hope to come home with an Elk this time. Some things I learned id like to share; You got to be in very good shape good shape, Cant play around with altitude sickness it can really bite you. Rolaids didnt work for me. A guy in my camp used Diamox worked well for him Anybody else starting plan there trips?
