My limited experience on a boat tells me gravol (or similar) is my friend. Riding 25 foot waves on the upper deck of a 70' boat in the bright sunshine is an absolute blast. Riding swells in the dark with no horizon to look at without proper preparation is not fun at all.

Damn near. I spent 2 hours looking for anything like lights on the horizon until the meds kicked in.

My only other experience with sea sickness was in a 16' sailboat in 3 foot swells... tied up to a warf. I lasted 45 seconds in the cabin.

I don't think I'm pirate material. \:\(

Wow, what an ordeal! Sorry to hear about it, John, but I'm glad you're okay. I can't imagine going through that.

What I found most disturbing was how much worse it could have been. We had ideal weather -- even rain would have made the latrine trips totally miserable (think of frequent slips and falls on the hill between tent and latrine), while heavy snow would have closed the trail home *and* burned through our firewood stash while we were too weak to gather and cut more. The flip side, I guess, is that we have a good air ambulance system up there and we were probably just a phone call away from having paramedics drop in if we had felt like loading down the ol' health care system.

Then again, since none of us are willing to even ask for directions unless someone is spurting blood, I guess the chances of actually using a medevac were pretty slim ;\)

Plus, if any of you had wanted to go ice-blocking, you wouldn't have needed ice, as long as you went pantsless.


Ok, I'm done making light of your ordeal now. ;\) Glad you're back.

Bad show indeed, John! Now, who was responsible for the ham?

I feel for you, my friend... I've had bad food poisoning twice in my life.

After the second time I don't seem to have the iron gut I used to... thinking I may have done some serious damage... now I can't drink picante salsa as a beverage anymore.
