Yay for knowledge of Teredo worms! Actually molluscs. I think that Columbus' ships were the first or among the first copper-clads; designed to minimize Teredo damage. Whether the copper sheets were nailed over 'holey' wood I dunno.

I will agree that the current average walking speed is around 3 mph, but without dependable vehicles it will go back up to ~4.

And for those that push the envelope, 6 mph isn't out of the question. Roman soldiers managed it daily, going 30 miles in 5 hours then building the evening's fortificaitons.

I voted for the depression, only because Americans in general won't change their habits quickly enough. Some of us will, but...
