The B Nomad I feed most days says he deals with changes in altitude better than most people he's changed altitude with.  And he's done a lot of changing altitude with all his nomadation around the globe.

ABNoWay, I think the GTD is already doing some serious turning on genes in you!!! You are noticing things that have been right under your nose for months, and they have completely escaped you! You are changing right before our eyes! Amazing!!! I guess next you will actually notice that Ribbit's husband is 39 years old and a B-type.  AND she has three children. AND she lives in Atlanta!   Plus, you probably will soon notice that you can find out more information about her!   It is almost like seeing Rip coming alive!

I've lived at a somewhat high altitude for the last 24 years. I think I've adjusted by now...  

When I go up in the high country, I never notice any real difference except in my ears.

However... it does take me awhile to adjust to visiting lower climes on occasion. I sometimes have to consciously slow my breathing and relax my diaphragm a bit. It doesn't feel like I'm really breathing at all. But when I get back home and the ol' diaphragm actually has to work to draw in air with a sharp intake of breath... that experience feels like "home" to me.  

I have never noticed anything with allergies or my immune system being affected by changes in altitude.

My B nomad doesn't have issues with anything like that.  I must admit though, he does seemed to have trained himself to breathe differently (possibly due to having had asthma) because when he's diving he uses extremely low amount of oxygen.  He tends to be able to make one tank last about twice as long as anyone else.  

High altitudes don't affect him at all.  In fact nothing much upsets him except not being able to go somewhere (anywhere) on the weekend!

Ha.  Funny.  My husband's the same way.  When we were first married and living in Miami, I was allowed to go out on dives with him and the crew from UM in their boat to collect/check on coral samples.  I couldn't SCUBA dive because I was pregnant, but I'd snorkle around.  Anyway, everybody would come up and my husband had only used like half the oxygen everybody else had used.  They wondered if he had been breathing.

Speaking of altitude and Nomads, I recently have started considering a move out to Utah when I (hopefully) return to school.  The plan is to go back to school in fall 2009.

I spent two years in Utah, and I've never even been back to visit, but a couple of days ago I started thinking about it.  Weird!  It is a long way off, but I have come to recognize this particular kind of thought as something I'm 90% likely to act on, and usually acting on it is the right thing for me (sort of like my move to Richmond).  Call it B intuition or just a Nomad who loves the mountains and roaming!

It's cool that you said that about you now know that type of thought is what you are most likely going to manifest vs just a passing thought. I feel that too now.

about nomadic roaming... I was wondering why I kept going back to the hotels to work "a new career in a new town" has always been my motto.  The job was just a summer job but I kept wanting to go back.  I get to meet so many people from different areas and listening to them "takes" me to the country or state that they came from. It makes sense.  My major in college was dramatic arts.  If I would have known about the nomad thing I might have studied hotel management.

The only thing I notice about myself with altitude, air & breathing is that my energy level is much higher with dry cool air and drops dramatically with warm humid or warm dry air. I would say on a scale of 1 to 10 it would go from a 10 (cool dry) to a 5 or 6 with warm air.  Don't know if this helps.

I love Utah!!!

Yeah, I don't like it hot and humid.  Give me a dry 50-60 degrees and I feel much better!!!!! Some people just love soaking up the son and being all warm.  Yuck!

I like soaking up a little sun, but not when it's 90 degrees F and 95% humidity.

Edited to add: It's funny that for years now, I've thought I was born in the wrong end of the state (North Carolina).  I was born in eastern NC, the coastal plains.  Low elevation and FLAT, FLAT, FLAT.  I love the mountains, and the mountains are all in the western end of NC.

I love hot, dry weather & dislike mountains (heretic!), maybe because they block the sun!
I did spend some time in West Va. & it rained so much & was depressing, altho the people were nice in general.
But I want you all to know I'm still your friend &  you are my friends!
Mountains look great in pictures, though.

When you're on top of the mountain there's plenty of sunshine.
