In my Boy Scouts I thought nothing of hiking 50km a
day for several days - I don't think much of the idea
now either. I was specifically thinking of Egyptian
soldiers escaping on foot (sans shoes) from the
Israeli army in the Sinai in the Six Day War. I always
wondered how the Children of Israel managed to stay
lost in the wilderness there for 40 years.
