Congratulations on marking that off your bucket list. Great write up on the events as they took place on the hunt. What I thought was even better you found him yourself and that had to be an even better personal accomplishment.

Probably 10-15 miles from that previous place. We stayed at the Spanish Peaks Inn at Gulnare, right next to Eichler's place.

Yeah, that was special. I was praying for God to lead me to him. Definitely a needle in a hay stack.

I workout regularly. I do mostly strength training with weights along with low impact cardio and conditioning work (no running or jumping). For 3 months or so before the hunt I did a lot of leg work. Heavy squats, LOTS of single leg work (Bulgarian split squats, step ups, lunges, etc.), calf raises.... Don't skip core work and push/pull upper body though. For cardio I did HIIT on AirDyne bike (low impact on my knees), lots of fast walking on 15 degree treadmill, and stair climber. Running and jumping is great cardio, but it's hard on my knees. I was diligent in not hammering on my knees. It paid off. I was fit and ready, and my knees never bothered me during the hunt.

I still found myself breathing a lot harder than normal, especially the first couple of days. There's just no way to simulate and prepare for altitude when you don't live at high altitude. Best we can do is to just be as strong and fit as we can be. I was able to keep up with the guide going up the mountain. I just huffed and puffed more than he did.
