NEW WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT

A new Canning Walker website in programming

www.canningwalker.com is built in very outdated, unsupported Joomla software. This causes limitations, restrictions, security issues and, well it is plain boring. Time for a revamp!

There will be a refocus on what it is that I want to write about and how I present it. Be prepared for something different ... but even more useful. I plan to grow this love of all things CSR into a viable, go-to, up-to-date resource. To keep my interest and motivation high, I must to be able to earn an income for the work I do, and with this in mind, pertinent advertising will be introduced.

You will see notes for my new developer Rod, on various pages. Please ignore them, or if you have a comment to make, you can get me on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or Facebook.

The Canning Walker's Challenge for 2013

End of the CSR for Gaynor Schoeman Canning Walker

Starting from Billiluna in the north near Halls Creek on 31 May 2013, Gaynor Schoeman walked 1657km solo for 66 days, carrying a backpack of 30kg, finishing on the 05 August 2013 in the tiny outback goldfields town of Wiluna.

Gaynor was raising money for quadriplegic wheelchair rugby players under the banner Walk 4 Wheels and Walk 4 Wings in memory of hangglider pilot and friend, Bruce McClunan, who broke his neck on 1st April 2011.

Many class this walk as unsupported, done in a similar way as the first successful walkers lead by Murray Rankin in 1976.

Whilst I did not walk with vehicle support, or with another person, without the help of Andy Sutcliffe in establishing my supply route before the walk, and my food sponsors, this walk would not have been possible.  For this reason I class my 2013 desert walk only as SOLO .... by my own standards. Media interviews - TV, Radio, Newspapers and Magazines.
