Prepping for Altitude

The Los Angeles Times published an interesting article last week entitled Prepare, then head for thin air which offers some excellent tips for anyone planning a high altitude trek.

The author of the article, Barbara Hernendez, begins by telling her own tail of contracting Accute Mountain Sickness, and how it effect her, and then goes on to explain a bit about the condition. She further goes on to suggest some drugs and home remedies that may help alleviate the symptoms, but says that the only real cure is acclimatization, as we all know.

The article is a basic, but interesting read, with some good information on AMS and approaches for avoiding it.
