Purification ritual...

I've begun to purify myself in preparation for the event.
I've begun to exercise and control my breathing ( I have a tendency to hyperventilate).
I am also spending more time out of the a/c to to help get my horns through the door so to speak.
Does anyone else do anything similar to this?

Can anyone tell me the elevation at black rock city. I'm concerned because it might be drastically different from where I live (995 feet) and I need to know if it will be an issue for me.
