I was at the same elavations in the Selkirks a few weeks prior and did not have the same issues.  The difference I think was the huge difference in humidity.  The dryness in Wyoming just sucked the hydration out of me.  I was fine on my danw patrol on Monday morning and then at roughly 9AM, everything crashed on me.  Hydrating hard afterwards was very helpful.  The lesson here - LISTEN UP EVERYONE - was that hydration is key; I paid for not being diligent about hydration.

Nah. If you're coming from sea level to 10K', it takes anywhere from 2 - 4 days to acclimatize. It can and dose vary due to a lot of factors and just because it took X days for an individual last time, doesn't mean it will take X days this time. Could be more, could be less.
