So I'm working on this game, it's a sci-fi tabletop RPG based on the RuneQuest rules (where physical statistics generally have a numerical value between 3 and 18) and I'm trying to figure out a means of deriving the carrying capacity of a human; ie. how much weight a human can reasonably carry for a day's hike. The calculation I'm using for maximum lifting weight (derived from weight-lifting world records) is as follows:

Lift


(STR + (CON / 2)) x 10
This figure determines the absolute maximum weight (in Kg) a character can lift above their head.


Sadly my Google and Wikipedia-fu are not strong and I've found no figures for how much a human can carry for a day. Can anyone point me in a helpful direction? Or tell me how much an extremely fit person can tote over a long period?
So I'm starting to plan this sci-fi tabletop game which features stable wormholes linking locations (think of a less-cheesy version of Stargate: Atlantis or an inferior version of The Algebraist) and I'm wondering if there's some kind of (easy to use and free) mapping programme that anyone knows of to show solar systems and their relationship to each other based on the wormholes?

Any help gratefully received.
