Meeting 2nd March featuring ‘Walking with Warren’ author Terry Krieg

Meeting 2nd March featuring ‘Walking with Warren’ author Terry Krieg

This month’s presentation features Terry Kreig, author of ‘Walking with Warren’. Terry will cover the many walks that he did with former club patron, the Late Warren Bonython, over nearly 40 years in the Flinders and Willouran Ranges and in the arid country further north. Among them will be their walk around Lake Eyre and a five day Simpson Desert walk to ‘fill the gap’ in Warren’s extensive outback walking and in which they set off carrying all of the water needed for the trip. What was Warren really like as someone to walk with? We'll find out tonight from the only person who walked extensively with him.

Copies of the book "Walking with Warren" will be available for sale at 50% discount at $20 a copy.

Hiking gear for hire at reasonable rates. Try out gear before you buy your own.

Checklist of equipment, food ideas, water, first aid list, rules, minimal impact bushwalking and what to do if you get lost.

Joining ABW takes you to new places you may never have heard of, off the beaten track, and to have new experiences.

Meetings 7:30pm on the 1st Wednesday of the month, in the hall at the North Adelaide Community Centre.

From Our Blog

Our annual photograph competition and Christmas social meeting was held this week, and we had a great selection of photos from members.
I’ve been making movies of trips for some years, and I share them with other walkers on the trip. Many of the movies consist of still shots and video clips – a few are all still shots only from scanning old slides. Here are some of these movies, dating from 1990 to 2015. Enjoy.
ABW has opened lots of doors for me since joining 16 years ago to get back into my long lost interest of bushwalking. As well as walking and kayaking, ABW also offered bike riding activities, especially in the warmer months. These range from social day rides to extended touring and camping rides in the Flinders Ranges and elsewhere. Like a few other members I now enjoy the full range of bike riding from mountain bike to road riding.
I had the chance to go to London with the family for 10 days and I was determined to get a country walk or two in during this time. I began my internet research and quickly found the website of the Saturday Walkers Club. I highly recommend it if you find yourself looking for an easy way of getting out of London and enjoying a walk in the countryside.
