However, there are more difficulties that I hadn't even thought of. For example, the Apollo astronauts had moon suits that weighed around 80 kg. No problem on the one-sixth gravity Moon; but Mars has one-third gravity. And the Martian dust is not only abrasive like Moon dust, it is also corrosive. So you don't want it on your skin. How you'd stop it getting everywhere (not to mention what you'd do in a Martian dust storm) needs to be worked out somehow.
As a result, I am completely pessimistic about the whole thing.
