The same team that walked 3,131 miles across America in 17 weeks is beginning a new challenge this week, walking through Australia. In the first week (June 26-July 2) four walkers recorded 112.2 miles. It’s a start.
The specifics of the walk are not defined or decided completely. The team will decide whether to walk across or around Australia, or do a combination. Kilometers is used in Australia, but this America team will translate km into miles.
Using the reports of previous walkers who walked across and around Australia reveals walking across Australia to be about 3,000 miles while walking around Australia to be about 8,000 miles.
This walk will be an adventure regardless of across or around this amazing country and continent.
Anyone who has walked Australia is invited to reply to this blog and join us on the walk, as well as provide information to us Australian novices. I have not been to Australia, yet.
You can join this walk by replying to this blog, giving your name and how many miles you walked the previous week, walking where you are or where you live.
We tabulate all the miles weekly and that determines how far our team walks weekly. Spread the word. We’d love for many to join us. It makes the goal of getting to the finish line happen much sooner.
We had 14 “walking across America” and would love to have 50 or more walking Australia.
Excited about walking Australia,
