  6. Google Maps™ Time Calculations

    Sticky: Hypoxia - 2

    Sorry, I must disagree. Acclimatizing to high altitudes takes far more than a few hours or even a couple of days. Think weeks to months. Also in a plane, one can easily and safely descend at 1,000...

  17. Two Possible Alternatives

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!
