    I imagine the likelihood of being in a situation where you have access to your BOB while not having shoes would be highly unlikely. Not that toughening your feet up is a bad thing...

    No pics... that’d be like Rex Ryan foot porn. 😁

    Unfortunately for me, I am stuck in dress shoes for work. However, I keep a ghb that has a change of clothes and very well broken in Belleville boots from AF days. I can hike all day long in them. A little heavy, but comfy and sturdy.

    I love wearing sandals in the summer. I have an old pair of comfy sneakers and socks in my car in case my car breaks down and I need to walk.

    Look at guys in Africa. Our "SHTF" is their daily life. Quite a few get buy with no shoes because barefoot is their daily EDC. Stinky tossaway, "I feel good donating to charity" Vans or cheap $20 shoes they sell at a gas station are like cadillac boots to them.

    No reason not to go out every so often and schlep a bit barefoot for a while. I juuuust about got my feet rough enough but not quite where I am happy, but I hate wearing shoes anyways. I try to be barefoot as much as possible.

    We were born barefoot for a reason.

    Just putting that out there
    Did you just watch "Die Hard" the other night?

    No.

    Actually I'm not totally alone here

    Your feet are the first thing that can get you into or out of a tight. I came up on this article when trying for a more fuller callus.

    It isn't germane, but for the self conscious my semi rough feet haven't been a turn off to females (for me) but I want a fuller callus.

    Think of the Cowboys who had to rely on horses and walking.

    The pejorative "tenderfoot" exists for a reason.

    I have put a bag together since doing prisoner transport in my dept. I could be 4+hrs away by myself and if all hell breaks loose, then I want to have some supplies to get me going in the right direction. Food, water, weather related extra clothes, fire starter, rain gear, shelter gear, medical kit. Still adding to it but want to use it for some weekend outings to get used to it see if anything needs switching or ditching.

    Is this accurate? I keep a gallon or so in the truck- one per person per day of walking but never more than 5-10 gallons fits. 40 L is roughly as many Kg.... Just checking. Are you in an arid climate? Tia

    I have an Osprey day pack that I take in the plane with me packed with survival gear. It also serves as a car/get home pack. It contains a lot of the things already mentioned, but I do rotate some stuff depending on the time of year, and also terrain I will be in, or over. I keep a mini SAS Survival Guide in with it.

    Can you carry a gallon of water if you had to walk home? a gallon of water weighs 8.3 pounds, that is a lot of weight if you had to carry it when walking home. I carry a gallon (plus) of water in my car as well, but If I had to walk home, I am not going to carry that much water. I live in the outskirts of Los Angeles and work in West Los Angeles (roughly 15 miles), and when we are hit with an earthquake, the roads will be most likely damaged, or blocked, so I most likely I will be walking home.

    My guess is ounces, not liters.
