That's actually probably much closer to reality than anything else!!! You have a good point, you as a group are only as strong as your weakest link. If you guys can't carry something in the neighborhood of a 60# pack for AT LEAST 10-15 miles per day, (20 being a much better goal) it'll take you forever to find a good spot and start getting set up.

(That's a big reason I won't be considering tagging along on this expedition!)

No, that's not the only thing. I have a little different idea of how I want to go about things, for one.

Also, I just started a non-profit to develop the town I live in as a model sustainable community, which is another dream of mine. We're working on renewable energy, sustainable waste management, local food growing, et cetera. I think all these projects will make me a much better candidate for homesteading when I do get ready to do it.

Well i do not have my actual pack i am taking with me into the wild, but i have a backpack i have been using. I load it full with books and hike up and down the river front down by where i live. Granted there are only 6 miles of trails 1 way, i think this is a good start to condition myself.

I am not in the best of shape but not completley out of shape either. So this is a good time to start gettin ready. Adam what tips do you have?

well if you got some good area around you with hills that you can go hiking around would be good with a pack with some weight in it, but if you don't do it on a continuous path than it wont help, i also think having a strong core your abs is key to strength, so doing ab workouts 4 times a week. Whatever you end up doing make sure you are pushing yourself very hard. going swimming if you can is a great workout, i dont think going on long runs is a good idea, i think its to much punishment on your joints, doing lone steady hikes with declines and inclines is much better, take it easy going down hill, heal to toe when you do. thats it for now if you want more hit me up.
