    I'm not sure what a hump is, but the longest ruck I was on was 100 miles in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

    25 miles... but my buddy spilled 1,500 gallons of fuel the other day and his ass got to ruck march from 0400-2000 with IBA, Kevlar, M16, Rucksack in 95 degree heat. If he walked 2 miles an hour (which is probably slower than he did) that would be at least 32 miles... He's walking like a prisoner's bitch

    Make sure to get your feet taped by the red cross. Most of the people who dropped out were the guys trying to be tough and ruck without tape.

    Most combat units try to maintain a sub 14 minute pace. The minimum standard for everyone in the Army to complete their yearly 12 miler is 3 hours; which is a 15 minute per mile pace.

    He left a fuel tanker running for about 3 hours. It was dry when he caught it.

    The red cross covers the bottom of your feet with thin strips of tape to help keep the layers of skin from seperating and reduce blisters. Unless your feet have the texture of beef jerky, it's probably best to get them taped.

    Is it special kind of tape?

    Because I would imagine just regular duct tape or whatever would cause moisture buildup between the skin on your feet and the tape and make things worse :dunno:.

    It's just cloth medical tape, kind of like what you would find on a good quality band-aid.
