Well, I guess I cant make it. Its funny, I am a pilot and often flew above 15,000 with no ill affects, but I now find I cant use my condo in Santa Fe for more than two days without escaping south to Gallup for some thick air !!My check on Google Earth says the elevation in front of the Ameristar Casino is 8,034 feet. To that you could add the elevation of your hotel room, LOL. Eisenhower Pass would take you up from that.
That Mt. Evans run you mention is absolutely awesome. I've driven it twice...first time was in my 1970 Trans Am back in 1972. The second time was in my wife's 3000GT 4 years ago. I would love to take the SKY up there, but I doubt that will ever happen because we live in Florida now.The Mount Evans run is the highest paved auto road in the continental United States, over 14K. Yes higher than Pikes Peak.
Do you have access to the Air Force Academy, Rob? I would love to go there. Never been on the grounds.
. We will get you down to flat lands if needed!
I dont have a need to run, I just feel terrible by the third day. Thats why flying at 15,000 is not a problem. I am only up there for 3 hours at a time, no problem. Its trying to live at that altitude that is unpleasant.
Hey, Bob, I just can't let you go on not reading and absorbing my Google searches. I sent this info in a part note to you last July after our run on Imogene. Here is what I found then (let me know if this is bunk):I just took old 44th Sky over Imogene Pass (13,110 feet) this summer.

Central City and Black Hawk appear on Google Earth to be right around the corner from each other.I have been riding on the Mount Evans road since I was 6 or 7 years old. Our vacations were always in the area of Black Hawk, which used to be only know as Central City I think. A fantastic place to visit no question. Anxious to get there.
I have volunteered sir and you said you already had a special job for me. I will remind you that I am thinking about bringing all three cars, so no, I am not tooth brushing the Punisher's exhaust system for you. lol...
Have you reached out to Hahn or RPM? I know there has been some bad blood between some Kappa owners and Martin at RPM but just throwing that out there.
