So what's the longest hump you've ever been on?
I'm not sure what a hump is, but the longest ruck I was on was 100 miles in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
i humped the wife for 45 mins once....im airforce longest walk I take is about 50 feet to the bathroom.. in basic who knows maybe a few miles but it wasnt really a hump, more like a slow march
what is at boot, like 8-10 miles?
I humped my girlfriend for a good hour though, and then humped again.
I will do this before I leave Europe
2 and a half hours is my record
the only humping the AF does is in the bedroom
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
What's the average speed most units go at while on humps?
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.
15-17 min/mile or so i guess.. with ruck, if thats what a hump is.
What do you mean get them taped?
Without stopping (6 hours)- 26 miles
Over a few days (3) - 68 miles
Is that a 40 hour period?
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.
It's not just the EIB standard.
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 .
It's just cloth medical tape, kind of like what you would find on a good quality band-aid.
