Here's a news item from the Associated Press: SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) — Three lawsuits on behalf of 353 lease holders of cabin sites on Priest Lake in northern Idaho have been filed to prevent Idaho officials from increasing annual rent payments. The Bonner County Daily Bee reports ( the lawsuits were filed Thursday and Friday in 1st District Court. A lawsuit filed Friday by the Priest Lake State Lessees Association represents 320 lease holders, and another lawsuit on Friday includes 17 more. A lawsuit filed Thursday includes 16 lease holders and names the Idaho Department of Lands, the Land Board and its five members, including Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter. That lawsuit contends the appraisals by the Idaho Department of Lands are flawed and inaccurate. Rates are set to skyrocket as the state seeks to maximize its profit from state endowment land as it is required to do by law.

About 6 years ago I went to Ecuador and landed and "home base" was Quito. I had some discomfort there which I attributed to my room being on the third floor and only accessible by stairs.
I was not in the best of health as I had recently finished chemo and radiation therapy.
From there we went to the Galapagos Islands and other than fussing about the heat, all was okay--health wise.<...ing to any high altitude locations as a result of this experience; but, now am interested in going to South Lake Tahoe for the dog sled rides my friend suggested.
I haven't been to the doctor to discuss this and wonder if I would just have to see what would happen if I go to the mountains or if the doctor would prescribe something for me to take as a preventive or in case I have a problem.

Is a common condition among people who go from low to high altitude. It can be marked by anything from a dull headache, fatigue and a little nausea to congestive heart failure and death.
Typically, someone who lives at sea level or so will need to take some time to acclimate at higher altitude, before being physically active. You were living in a city near 10,000 feet. I assume that the sp...igh blood pressure who take certain medications, are at more risk of developing the condition, and when they do get the condition are more likely to become seriously ill.
It sounds to me like you had nothing more than a mild, or perhaps moderate, case of altitude sickness in Ecuador. If that's the case, South Lake Tahoe should be no problem for you at all.
