This is just in regards for our network troubleshooting problems / purposes but could someone tell us a publicly pingable host that has an easy to remember IP address? Is 127.0.0.1 the easiest?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

127.0.0.1 maps to localhost. This just checks if your client network adapter/IP stack is responding. Your next pings should be to your local gateway. However, ICMP echo requests/responses may be blocked at some firewalls. Yahoo.com & Google.com do respond to pings on the public internet.
