Our heroes this week, the long-walk legends Will and Corrie Boag are setting off again this year as part of their ongoing project ‘Will to Walk’. This is their 8th yearly walk where they’ll be climbing the mountains of the Adelaide Hills and Flinders Ranges for the whole month of June 2021.
Will says, “This walk is about showcasing that life doesn’t end with Parkinson’s, in my case, it has given me a kick-start to live a rich life and working towards the best possible outcome.”
Where will you be travelling and walking this year?
We will be travelling to, and walking in, the Flinders Ranges, probably day walks of around 15-20 kms daily depending on the hills and mountains. We may then head north to the MacDonnell Ranges and do similar walks there.
Of all the walks you’ve been on, which has been the favourite?
My favourite walk was in Switzerland from east to west and then south over the Alps into Italy. It is difficult to answer however, because they all have their different flavours and we like a variety of tastes.
