I’ve been told that the main distance limitations with TOPLs/EUFs is that they must be “within walking distance” to the standard Unit Footprint, but I was wondering if someone knows if 1.2Km is pushing the limit on “walking distance”.
For context, the area we’re hoping to use (mainly for AT/Land Nav) is a nature reserve which is accessible via a public path through a farmer’s field from the squadron, which is 1.2Km or a 10-15min walk, or 1.4Km from a nearby road which takes 2-3mins to get to the reserve’s car park from the squadron.
In my eyes it’s the very definition of walking distance but I don’t want to go through the headache of both the EUF and TOPL application process to be told it’s too far away.
You can mitigate a lot of riska by stipulating things like…
Locations of defibs… best case buy one.
Safery car will be at the EUF.
Mobile phone coverage check. Put in a map of coverage as an atachment.
Attach the exact lesson plans you will use for the activities so that everything is in the open.
