drinking at lower levels....
    #3411038 - 11/26/04 04:16 AM (12 years, 17 days ago)

i mean this literally...

i live in colorado(obviously... elevation around 6000ft...

i'm currently in vegas... elevation around 3000 ft i believe...

it's amazing the difference that altitude can make in your ability to drink... 

in CO... 1/3 bottle of vodka would have had be passed out somewhere by now...

in vegas... i could probably still pass a roadside... 

kind of sucks in a way... it's damned expensive to get drunk at lower elevations now...

but, i'll gladly put money on myself in a drinking contest against most anyone at sea level...

is that really true? i just moved from sea levelin hawaii to a city near reno, must be around 4000ft elevation. lately, whenever i drink even small amounts, i get headaches really fast and kind of drowsy. i didn't even think of elevation playing a factor in all that...

completely true...

if you jumped up 4000ft... consider your drinking abilities cut in half... until you can get a tolerance for the altitude...

the first time i drank in CO... 3 yrs ago... i went at it like i did in PA... and woke up 5hrs later w/out any memory of what happened after my last drink...

completely unheard of for me...

thinner air= less oxygen= slower body functions to begin with... so, throw a downer into the mix and your ass is kicked.

heh... it will take a few months for your body to adjust if you came from true sea level...


if i were to go to true sea level right now and convince someone to pay my bar-tab for the night... they'd be really pissed come the end of the night: a bottle of liquor is not cheap in the bar...

i'm almost 1/2 way through a handle of vodka in a little over 4hrs... (plus 2 loretabs)...
