WK2 - Offroad trip - over 17099 feet high.

Hi,
Just back from an excellent trip, little more than 800kms. offroad in the Andes, the idea was to get to Pissis Volcano.
As you will see we went as far up as 5262 mts over sea level..thats more than 8300 feet high.
The GC behaved perfectly well, only issue was the tire aire sensors all lit up, my guess was air pressure caused it.
Here are some pics, when I get a chance I'll upload more along with videos.













Here its me taking a pic of my GPS to show altitude..5212 mts. over sea level..that in feet comes to 17099 feet over sea level !.


Hope you liked them.
Rgds.
Victor

Just curious... at what altitude did you start supplementing oxygen?
