    How far would you have to walk home from work, after emp.

    For me its 24 miles from my driveway to parking lot at work. If we had an emp event where truck wont run and had to get home, I keep one 9mm with extra clip in my truck. Small ice chest pack pack for water and snacks that I always have at work. Walking stick is a beefy flounder gig that can double as a weapon.
    I did a 24 mile walk one day just to see if I could make it ok. Took about 10 hours.

    I'm 57.9 miles away. It's a 20 hour walk. Luckily I have a river that goes from my work to almost my backyard. I can take that route if the highway is clogged up. Already have the GHB in the truck so all I'd have to do is grab it and go.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    What is this work thing you speak of ? Not overly concerned about EMP out here. Anywhere with in 30 mile circle of the farm I would likely be no farther than 5 miles for a safe place. Straight walk home from towns near here would at best be 15 miles.

    Depends. I don't work in the same place day to day. Sometimes, I'm 2 miles from home. Sometimes, 20. On occasion, 30-50.

    From my "work" place door to my home door is eight feet.

    It has been that way since 1982.

    The furthest we travel for any occasion is 35 miles.

    Shopping trips are within 18 miles.

    There is a GHB in each vehicle along with a shotgun in each, with 100 rounds of OO buck.

    IF there was a high threat possibility, we would not leave at all.

    I'm 21 km (roughly 13 miles), and according to google, that should take me just under 4 hours. I keep a get home bag in the trunk of my car, along with my trekking poles. I'm looking forward to the day when my commute is a short walk from the cabin to the barn or workshop

    I have GHB's in all my trucks. Since I work out of my truck it just depends on where I am when the balloon goes up on how far I have to walk. Could be across town (Houston) or across Texas and beyond. With my luck I will be in Chicago, New York, or some other god forsaken liberal ass city. Geezzzzz, I might be in California!!!!

    17 miles or 24 depending on what office I was at. With that said, I do keep a folding bike in the trunk of my car and I drive my car to work 90% of the time, so I would likely not have to walk, unless it was a real snowy/slippery day.

    Don't have to move a muscle. Haven't wasted my time making someone else rich in 10 years. Live at my BO local.

    Depending on the day and time of year I might have to drive into town 20 miles and pick up the wife. One of the benefits of having an old truck and motorcycles with no computers. I won't be walking anyplace.

    Might have to walk down the stairs and throw another log on the fire that's about it.

    Assuming an EMP is the only way your truck can be rendered useless is a dangerous tactic.
