    First extreme thanks to Edwin and my marine friend who looks like Wayne, but I thought had a different name? UPDATE: I'm not that bad of a hiker, I really was in trouble today on the hike with a severe drop in blood pressure and racing heart, but neither heart, lungs or dehydration were the problem. After 6 hours in the ER the culprit seems to be my kidneys which is why I was in so much pain. FIXABLE. I'll be out for awhile, but not too long. Thanks everyone for the concern and patience, sorry for the drama.
