I did a 20K road march the other day and it made me realize how bad one is not ready for anything even though you think you are, physically I was good to go as far as my legs and and upper body were good even though I was only lugging a 40 lb rucksack we all know how uncomfortable those things are even the new one we have are not the best especially how they carry on the shoulders. Also the boots we have are not the greatest but I was wearing a pair of boots I really like and consider one of the better boot deisgns the Army has out thier as well. But what was bad were my feet they wore tore up it was like someone took a hammer and beat the tops of me feet and the bottom of them don't know how to describe it they were brusied and felt like they were on fire regardless made it in the alloted time. What brings this up are all the sheep stories out thier now and the guys humping it 20 plus miles up and down these hills. So my hats off to you guys and gals for being able to do this with little to no problems at all. Also shows you all have great training programs in place prior to your sheep hunts.
