Ok first of all, you said yourself it has been years since you had done any life saving things in the water... the boy scouts I believe is what you
said. That right there says a lot. Practice, Practice, Practice is you best bet with that.
As far as having to carry everything for them...NO you have them carry what they can and you carry what you can...that's it. If your weak in an area,
you work on it...if your needing to get your strength up, try working out some or getting your cardio up some.
Your not going to be running the entire time you bug out...at least in my opinion your not going to be...your going to be moving quick or maybe
cautiously...but if your running the whole way something is really wrong...I would honestly say it might be sprints from one spot to another making
your way out of wherever you are, to get to the location you have picked out.
I did not read any of the posts except yours so this all might be said already, but go camping for a week or a long weekend. Take only what you and
your wife and child can carry on your backs, walk in and walk out hauling everything you need on your back. This will also let you know what you need
and do not need, what has duel uses and what is a waste of weight and space.
You can take a lot more than you think with 3 of you sharing the load, yes...you might be hauling most of it yourself, but the little extra's they
bring could be of great value, things that they bring can be knowledge that you lack...it is hard to put a price on that.
This is just my .02 cents from what I read in your tread...try it or don't...it's your plan, your life...you do as you see fit.
