This 90 SP 3208AATAC was almost embarrassed ascending to the Eastern Continental Divide yesterday, so I wish him the best of luck!

Love this thread
We did sea level ( drove the coach down a boat ramp in the keys just enough to get the steers wet ), then to the Rockies. If you’ve gone over the pass on Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park you hit 12,183 feet. Pikes Peek is higher yet 14,115 When we did this trip I bought an oxygen generator 5 liters A min capacity. I ran hoses from the generator to the dinette and passenger seat it also had a hose and mask in the bedroom. Worked very well. On that trip I had family here from the Netherlands altitude -8 feet below sea level, they really appreciated that bird upgrade. Yes Malbec was involved

That's not my concern, he has to come down the other side......
Oh. he can come down the other side if he makes it to the top; the questions is in how many pieces.

Well, if there's a record there, somebody has to try to break it -- and they did!!



The primary objective of the Extrem Events team was to provide high altitude shelter and emergency telecom services to improve the safety of mountaineers climbing in Chile. They erected two shelters in 2017 on the highest volcano in the world (Ojos del Salado/Chile) and went back up this year to install 4 radio units in the 4 high camps used by mountaineers and scientific expeditions on that volcano. At the same time, they performed vehicle altitude testing for further rescue and altitude operations, and went for an improvement on the high-altitude record for trucks set in 2014.

"With two Unimog’s, the Extrem Events team managed to break the high altitude world record for trucks set in 2014. And even more: with one of the Unimog’s, a new mark was set for the absolute high altitude record for all motorized vehicles, at 6,694m (21,961.9 ft). No other vehicle in the world has driven higher than the Unimog U 5023 did on the Ojos del Salado, on December 13, 2019.”

Anyone heard from Eric lately??
