  1. Hey,
    Thanks so much for this post! I think it is so important to consider these types of dangers when it comes to alcohol consumption. I had no idea the effect high altitude could have! I think the promiscuous mode that alcohol encourages can definitely lead to more dangerous situations at high altitude.
    Best,
    Dennis
