    I know right. I just weighed my pack, flak & kevlar. 75lb + M16 + Serialized gear (NVG, Radio, Tent, Binoculars other shit) + 60mm Mortar Gear (20lb each person)

    ^ If you have even 1/2 of what I listed for serialized and the rest it's about 100 - 125lb

    POGS :mamoru:

    lol

    worst ever for me was a 22k, took us like 8 hours. The pace was nice, but we had way too much equipment. It was winter, cold but not windy and the sun was out. Trudging through 3 ft of snow, took turns being scouts with rackets, took turns carrying platoon/section support weapons, took turns carrying and being (that was nice) casualties and finally, took turns dragging the section sleds, which have everything you need for a week of winter warfare, tent groups, rations, ammo, water, tools for digging in, lanterns and allthatshit, all this on top of our personal rucks and shit. We had two radiomen become actual casualties that had to be evac'ed near the end.

    I'd only been in the army a few months at this point, so that day is what came closest to breaking me, it was all good though, powered through and we all ran the last 1k and finished in our t-shirts in -20 weather, feels good man.
