Traversing Difficult Terrain Without Falling Down

There is no worse time for your rig to unceremoniously lose power and roll to a bumpy halt than miles from nowhere at the edge of your known universe.

All around you is mountainous terrain you were hoping to traverse in the comfort of Detroit’s finest, navigating your way toward the base camp for a relaxing time with friends around a campfire. That plan has been shot to hell when your auxiliary belt gave way, leaving your alternator, water pump, and power steering pump inoperable and your vehicle lifeless. What now? Well, it’s time to start walking.

The human body was designed to walk. The animal kingdom is full of many modes of transportation— swimming, crawling, flying—but only humans walk. We can cover long distances efficiently and effectively, basically outlasting our prey, and our method of walking—heel to toe—uses much less energy than the gaits of nearly all other mammals. If you’re staring down a dusty trail with trepidation, remember that human beings were born to walk.
