I do 30+- km ruck hikes on a well used state park trail and I often get asked if I was training for something specific. My stock answer used to be that I was preparing for a two week AT (Appalachian Trail) hike, but one of my civilian* friends alerted me to GORuck.
1.a person who has no idea how fsck’d up our country is; one who suffers from normalcy bias.
I highly suggest those who are able to do so, get involved, or at least familiar, with GORuck. Add this to your Appleseed training and you have a nice low profile training option with nice ‘optics’.
