If you can’t ride a horse for 8 hours they will be in deep trouble walking carrying a bag of stuff. Most folks can’t carry a grocery bag of stuff out to their car from the store. But we aren’t those folks! Walking up a mountain with a heavy pack is another thing though. The link in the article to Graywolf Survival regarding guidelines on amounts of weight that are reasonable for the rest of us to carry is very good.
