Bob Loce will present information/photos of hypoxic training for acclimation with a return to Cotopaxi.  Bob is a patent technical specialist at Datto and a former research fellow at Xerox and PARC. He does most of his mountaineering locally in the winter up in the Adirondacks and occasionally climbs big mountains. He will share his experience with hypoxic training for acclimation and a return trip to Cotopaxi and neighboring mountains. Bob will bring the hypoxic training device, describe how to best use it, some related nutritional information, and attempt to describe some of the biological effects. The climbs were on the stratovolcanic mountains of Ecuador in the Andes, namely Rucu Pichincha (15,696'), Corazón (15,715'), and Cotopaxi (19,347') with Ecuadorian guide Fredy Tipán. He will compare acclimation on this trip to previous acclimations.
