Agreed, I regularly go to collapse, but as long as I am hydrating and eating, it is a gradual thing, but no chest pain. Usually back, arms, legs, etc. My wall right now seems to be four hours.

By the way, the mortality was higher earlier on, less knowledge on how to treat, etc. So there is no certainty that the percentage will go up significantly. Stats are fun this way.
