    Denver, Colorado. Drank the same volume of beer as a usual night out at the bar, but definitely felt more buzzed.

    Went to school in Denver mid 70's so between skiing and hiking with backpacks the highest with feet on the ground was 14400 or so as we ticked off about 7-8 14ners. Now if you include what else may have been in the packs then were considerably higher

    Somewhere in Colorado. Most likely on one of the peaks at Keystone. I still carry a flask to "keep warm" when skiing/boarding.
