    Body weight: a lot.
    Pack weight: depends what you're doing

    More than you would intuitively expect. There is a large difference between how fast and far you walk with 20kg vs 15kg of course, but also 15kg vs e.g. 13kg makes a surprising amount of difference. UL people have noticed this and taken it to its logical (yet stupid) extreme.

    Quite a bit. You need to be really picky about what you bring along if you are going to be traveling long distances.
    >be me
    >get arrested for doing dumb stuff when I was young
    >decide that when I get freed I will spend more time outside
    >the day I get out say screw it, I am walking cross country
    >notice a farmer’s market in the first town I go through
    >someone selling whole cheese wheels
    >haven’t had cheese the whole time I was in captivity
    >love cheese
    >buy 2
    >cheese is heavy, going is tough, but doable
    >crossing a mountain pass happen across a HUGE lizard skull and a pile of bones right by the trail
    >they are super cool, so I figure I can pick them up and sell them in the next town
    >bones way heavier than they look
    >can barely move while carrying them
    >decide it has to be either the bones or the cheese wheels
    >sit down and eat both cheese wheels
    >walk merrily on my way, no longer over-encumbered
    Ended up seeing a lot of the country on that trip. Learned a lot of skills and lessons along the way, but the first was that traveling with too much weight is not worth it.

      a lot but it shouldnt really matter you dont really need to worry about it but you do need to make sure you are eating enough that is infinitely more important than lowering your weight. it just so happens eating lowers your pack weight substantially its remarkable really like said

      Did you meet a park ranger that took an arrow to his knee along your travels across the land?

    A good amount, it also fricks your body up more, which is rarely discussed. Military anons are probably a lot more familiar with this, but heavy packs will add significant stress to your body, it will have you burn a lot more calories, and generally slows you down. Not saying you need to go full UL autism, but take note if what they do, and find a good medium. Inpersonally invest in light gear, but also comfort, like wider sleeping pads, sleep systems more tailored to my prefered style, booties, etc. this will make your time PrepHole significantly more enjoyable. Also be realistic about what you'll actually need and what you intend to do PrepHole. I prefer to walk, so a light load, snacks, primarily sleep gear and food/water is needed. Thats also why I invest a little extra weight into my sleep gear so I can recover well and be able to walk long distances day after day.

      So distribute the weight across your body instead of throwing everything in a backpack like some tourist.

    For reference if you're around 400 pounds and you really take your time you could easily travel at least 2 miles per day without destroying your legs and back. I know this is terrible but it's something

    Why not just tie a bunch of balloons to your backpack?
