    I stretched it out to age 67 & 1/2. I was the boss at work, my boss was several hundred miles away and only came up a couple times a year.

    I'd still be there today, EXCEPT our warehouse was in the ghetto of the Murder Capitol of Florida - Jacksonville.
    I carried a 357 magnum at work, the bad guys dumped dead bodies on our street, the vice squad would do prostitution busts in our parking lot. Sometimes I felt like I was back in Nam.

    I did a 24 mile walk one day just to see if I could make it ok. Took about 10 hours.
    That was a really good idea - to see what a 24 mile walk was like. Good job.
    Like RPD, we're retired and hopefully we'll be at home if an emp hits. The small town we get supplies from is 11 miles away, fishing spots are about 5, and we can both walk that easy. God help us if we got caught in Spokane. We're in and out of that city fast, maybe once every two months, and the stores we shop are on the north (closest to us) edge, so that's good - it would be a three day walk...more if we stayed off the main highway for part of it. We carry water & snacks & a few other things in a small pack in the truck, and we always wear good walking footgear.
    Thanks for starting this thread - it gave me an idea for another, and you'd be more than welcome to join in.

    Easy 12 miles. Force marches are still easy for me. Airborne shuffle would be better but I'd be having some untrained, undisciplined folks coming with me.

    I’m retired but my wife insists on working for awhile yet. Her work is about a two day hike, I would meet her as soon as I possibly could. We both have a BOB which each have a five day supply.......

    LOL, looks like you beat me to it again! I have a great little polishing nook here. The sharpening stand, the computer and the coffee maker are all within arms' reach. Right off the kitchen is the fireplace, and I got it rocking and rolling. I like the set-up of the master bedroom, it's down an L-shaped hallway, and my wife and the mutt are snoozing quietly, and it's overcast here, so the bedroom is dark.

    Retired... but wife works and is all over town. She may have to walk 20 to 30 miles. She’s a marathon runner so she can do it but she’s lite on the prepping side so she not well prepared no matter what I say or do.
