In “Train Like It’s Real” Kevin Estela of Estela Wilderness Education challenges the reader to learn from the experience of reality training. By basing exercise and training off of reality, a person can learn what works and what doesn’t. To learn one’s limits in a “bug out” or “evasion” scenario similar to what can be found on Manhunt/Lone Target, Estela recommends adding ruck marches to one’s exercise regimen. Estela also provides an overview of the Go Ruck GR1 26L pack that is ideal for extended and heavy ruck marches as well as every day carry and travel.
