His dad (buddy's uncle) tried to hire my buddy and me to camp out on grow sites back in the day (we refused despite a huge promised paycheck) but Shane took over the old man's business. From what the family says, Shane has around $5 million stashed away in cash, gold, silver and other stuff. The King range is his home territory and it is some of the most rugged land out there. Plenty of game to survive on, and no vehicle access is possible throughout most of the area.

I have a feeling this is not going to have a good ending.

It's a lie. A damn flaming lie, and you know it, and you know who you are.

Oh I'm good. Just pizzed. Looking forward to my upcoming vacation though, I really need some time away from everything. Gonna spend some time camping, probably check out this animal rescue that Cinder's volunteering at, enjoy a nice change of scenery. Go from my muggy bottom land to high plains and mountain ranges.

Speaking of, I think I saw where West Monroe is only 30 something feet above sea level, and I think the place we're going camping is near 10K... I'd better check into that to make sure.

Any advice for warding off altitude sickness? It's about an 18 hour drive to Laramie, which isn't as high as the spot we're going to try camping at, so I'll at least be making the change more slowly than if I were to catch a flight...

Trip- if you smoke, gonna be a problem. Limit your physical exertion. Be sure to stay hydrated. NO BOOZE. I have been over 14, while living at 6.7, and was a challenge to me. Flatlanders? Comatose. Tylenol can help. First symptomes of altitude sickness feels like a AREALLY bad hangover.

AND- if it comes to that, do NOT try to "gut it out". Get off the mountain- before someone has to drag your body off the mountain.

Don't buy the high-test gas on that last fill-up.
