A quick question
I have a question if anybody can help me with my wife and I are expecting a baby in a couple of days and I want to try and put botg this sept and being from Southeast Louisiana the highest elevation we have is an ant pile I was wondering how the elevation difference would effect a 3 mo old we will be driving from around sea level to over 10000 ft I know the air is thinner the higher u go and want to make sure it doesn’t pose any threat to our baby’s health thanks

You should ask your doctor.

I agree with @crazyfamily . If it were me (and I have two kids 10 and 13), I would have her and the baby sit this one out. Congrats!

All the best.

Go on your own (if you must) and leave your wife and baby at home.

RE: A quick question
I wouldn't take any kid not born in high elevation and that could not talk into higher elevation above 6500 feet just IMO. I have taken adults who live in low elevation areas up to Sandia Crest elevation 10,678 and they have became car sick due to altitude sickness so they at least warned us before pucking in the backseat. Altitude sickness does not affect all maybe 50 percent but if your not acclimated to it your going to feel it. Interesting note is that when I moved to Albuquerque from Dallas it seemed like all I wanted to do the first month is sleep due to the altitude change. Now when I go on vacation back to sea level I have tons of energy due to the changes in my red blood cells and the reason why athletes train in Colorado springs.

RE: A quick question
stray from the pack.
stay home with your wife,
and help raise your child.

I don't mean to throw a stick in your spokes.
imo, there is no option. TF?

Check with your doctor first, and then go for it. Kids need a little adventure in their lives.

A quick question
Thanks for the information about altitude sickness I read a little bit about it on the internet but didn’t know if it was true or not I work on the Mississippi River and only home about 3 months a year and when I found out about the chase last year I thought it could be a way out to be able to be with my family more this will be my first botg and probably my last unfortunately if I don’t find anything I think would focus on chasing a new job where I could be home every night than chasing a dream

Don't hike alone. Bring someone with you, even if it's not your newborn
child.
