  • 160-170 lbs probably.
    I'm able to lift my boyfriend who's ~200. But I don't know if I could carry that weight for a distance.

  • Sorry, I'm not used to the imperial measurements and can't readily think in terms of lbs.

    I would be able to carry someone who weighs around 50kgs, I suppose.

  • Adding 150 pounds to your legs plus your own weight is a LOT. Soldiers carry around 60 pounds of gear and its damn brutal but they do it all the time.

    I guess if it was something serious adrenaline and other boosters will help you. Half a mile takes around 12 mins to walk.. so i guess any of those since its only 12 mins ill make sure to get them there even at 250

  • I really don't know but I'm a pretty strong guy so I'm guessing I could give a piggyback ride to someone on the heavier side.

  • I reckoned I'd make sure and carry them there eventually no matter the weight. I mean I don't have big strong arms, but they'd be on my shoulders probably so that wouldn't matter. It'd all be in the legs and back, and because of that I reckon I could carry a heavy person the half a mile to safety.

    • The easiest to do though is sling them over your shoulder like a bag of flour.

  • Half a mile?
    150 to 160

  • It's all about leverage and where you position their body on yours to move them, I've done it with a 300+ lbs person for just about a half mile but I will say I don't think I would ever do it again with said person

  • All depends on how you're carrying them. I've carried guys over 300lbs, 200 isn't much for me.

  • First of all your never carry a injured person if it just you because your far more likely to trip and hurt yourself or them so you would stable the injury best you can if it's a neck injury you don't move them at all and then you can one man drag them out or if possible call and have the parimedics do it

  • Only someone who weighs as much as me or is lighter. So ~130lbs. 1/2 mile is a lot, that's like a 10min walk. And probably 20mins if you're carrying someone 😳
