Keep in mind what he or you are walking through or upon.

For instance walking 200 ft through dead fall timber is much more taxing than walking 1/2 mile on a hard, flat dirt road.

Sandy or loose rock slopes are more difficult. Navigating dense tree branches as opposed to wide open lodge poles makes a difference.


Agreed. I simply want to rule out anything that is completely out of the question because of distance. Then I can take a more methodical approach to the remaining areas that meet a reasonable criteria.

Knowing he has back problems (from meeting him several times), I'd say 1/2 mi at the outside, probably less.

Just guessing or call it gut feeling. 1/4 mile per leg. Around a mile total walking.
