    Depends on the wind for me, Andy. Usually eastbound with tailwind, I’ll go to 15 or 17. Cannulas only good to 18. Westbound low, down to 8000 with a big headwind, terrain allowing, but that’s accepting a loss of TAS up to 10 kts.

    Bottom line 10,000 or above, depending on wind and terrain. Lowest IFR MEA across WY is V-6, 10,000.

    JMHO, YMMV 🙂
