@Site Admin - never walked up that hill - I assume it's something you spend a lot of time running up in the army? never been in British military (i can delete my account if the forum is ex British military ONLY).

Joined the forum to try and solve the shoulder strap problem - thanks for the advice / tips everyone

Seriously, do not leave as:

a. If it was Brit Mil only there'd only be a few people to talk to.

b. You took the "jokes" well and joined in. Zero dummies spat out.

c. This thread has been the best thing since . . . . . . . can't think of a decent analogy. Anyone?

I wouldn’t persist with this; he’s an American. Colonel Sanders and Ronald McDonald are considered Michelin starred chefs over there.
I’m not American - but even sow, digging on me based on nationality is tasteless.

KFC is battered chicken (Scottish & African cuisine) and McDonalds is hamburger with julienne cut fries (European). As far as I can tell - Americans took European cuisine and added to it to become the new norm (one might say - superseeded it)

Stay on the site a little longer, and learn the ways of the site, piss taking is normal in some parts of this site.

That aside, Why do you want to carry half the frecking world on your shoulders, when you have no reason to
Gen question,

Just remembered...

If you can affix a strap between the shoulder straps and across your chest, that IME does help take some of the weight off your shoulders.

Hey BB, don´t they, or didn´t they have a different phonetic alphabet in the US Armed Forces?

In the US military your Arrse callsign would be ´Baker-Baker´.

Not that it has anything to do with this thread.

Haha it’s a good laugh mate ;-)

My fiancé and I want to travel the whole UK on foot, carrying all our belongings with us. This means cutting down on loads of belongings and unnecessary rubbish, but also exposure to long, tough hikes carrying weight - who knows how much??

I plot a 12km route on OSMaps- we then walk it. We started off at zero weight a year ago. The idea was - we train to walk / building weight first, then, when we have got enough weight, we will work on distance. The idea is we each make our own decision to go up 3kg, or stay put. So far I’m up to 33kg. (Misses is 18 or something). We walk very very slowly - we will work on speed later I guess. Now the pack is digging in and as I go up more and more - it’ll start being an issue.

This whole thread has become stale.
