Reminder about Altitude + Alcohol

All,

If you choose to drink in Ouray, please please remember that it will affect you MUCH more differently than normal if you're a flat-lander like myself.

Last year I had about 1.5 beers before it really hit me - of course I was exhausted, etc etc.....but...

anyway, something to keep in mind. It'll also dehydrate you and you need LOTS more hydration at this altitude...

MT6 Titanium

ARB roof rack, BFG AT KO's, Demello sliders, skid (bling) plate, TRD exhaust, VIP, UR2, and side airbags.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing... don't give away our secret, I would look like a god if no one knew altitude affected them.

The power ya'll hold is amazing.

Colo. lifted it's Sun. booze ban July 6, just to bump Ouray's profit margin by about a million six.
