Anyone else been up that high before?
I've been that high while driving though the Colorado Mountains and when I went camping, hiking in thin air is hell, but so good at the same time.
So NG, anyone else been 12k or higher up?

also 12k post

36,000ft is the standard international flight.

Am also looking to get my sky-diving license soonish, which are 12-14k foot jumps. Fun fun.

not really since you're not AT that altitude is, a plane has oxygen being pumped so you don't get the "thin air" part at all

Yes, it has wings, two big engines and a nice man at the from who is probably very, very drunk.

Besides a plane, no. Closest I've come is probably when I went snowboarding at Lake Tahoe. Wiki says that it's only 10,000 feet or so. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heavenly_Mo untain_Resort

Lake Tahoe is a good place to go to, you should try Aspen, CO or Vail during the winter

About 8000ft at Capulin Volcano. Big old protrusion in a relatively flat land.


Assuming control.

On a plane yes, hiking, no. The highest I hiked was some small mountain on Yosemite park.

What's the standard flights for just in the USA? You know, that's even higher than Mount Everest! They REALLY went out of their way to make sure no one would be hurt by mountains.

I've been that high before. I climbed the tallest mountain in New Mexico back in 09.

I've been to Banff in Canada, can't remember what mountain we went up, and I'm not sure how many feet above sea level it was, I think the air was a little thinner though.
