Unfortunately, things are not going so well at our new campsite and we’re not quite sure why. I have been having more fatigue, pain, hives and trouble sleeping.
So far the most plausible explanation is that moving to a higher elevation has caused some of our cross-contaminated belongings to off-gas at a faster rate. It’s not uncommon for possessions that were not a problem at a lower elevation to become a problem at a higher elevation. We’re not sure.
One thing seems pretty clear, I am reacting to my phone which is the only thing we kept that was in the moldy apartment with us. I normally use it through a plastic bag and haven’t had a problem with it until now. I blog from my phone so I am sad to announce that I am going to need to take a day or two off.
The best way to determine if it’s the location or our stuff is to spend a full day away from all our stuff and see how I feel. If I don’t improve then it’s probably the location. We’re hoping it’s just the elevation denaturing the biotoxins on our stuff since that should die down in a couple days. We’ll see.
