If the need arises to run, to move quicky, some fat people are screwed, some skinny people are screwed. I have seen plenty of skinny people that have
absolutely no sense of themselves and wouldnt be able to out manuever a turtle. Survival is more about your brain then it is your body, if you take
your disadvantages, and find a way to do something that eliminates them, find a way to turn them around to advantages then you should be fine. If you
are fat and slow physically as well as slow mentally, you arent going to make it, same goes for skinny and fast but mentally on the same level as a
ground squirrel. I am a big feller, 6'4 and around 250, I can move as fast as I need. I have run a good mile with around 80lbs on my back in the
morning hours out in marshes battling for a good spot to hunt ducks. I am bigger then I should be, but it doesnt dictate my living or dying in a
survival situation. Being resourceful, and willing to not give into the discomfort, muscles burning, feet aching, cold, tired, hungry, is what will
keep you alive, not your waist size. If you arent resourceful, and cant get out in the woods and walk in the cold, the heat or anyother situation ma
nature throws at you without feeling like you are going to give up, you wont make it in a SHTF situation.
You go ahead and hunt the fat kids,you come after this fat kid I will be having skinny punk for dinner one night. Um skinny stringy punk, nah I
think I would have to hunt fat people also, more tender meat, probably some good marbling.
