What the 45-year-old Coeur d’Alene man (Phil Corless) had gotten into was a 84-mile walk along the famous Hadrian’s Wall that runs the entire width of Northern England. In July, he joined a group of 35 walkers from England, Scotland, Ireland, Holland and the United States as they made their way from east to west. They followed the remains of the wall and small lookouts built by the Romans in 122 AD to keep the Scottish out of England. Corless paid a price. He suffered swollen legs, blisters, weariness and a shortage of sleep. While he admits there were times he felt he was faltering, that he couldn’t go on, that he wanted to hop on a bus instead, he pushed on/Bill Buley, Coeur d’Alene Press. More here.

Question: What is the greatest adventure that you’ve ever been on?
Idaho Dad/A Family Runs Through It wasn’t joking when he said he was going to walk across England. At the end of June, he traveled to that far and distant land to take part in a gathering of parents, and other assorted characters, who were determined to follow the 84-mile Hadrian’s Wall Path from one coast to the other. All in the name of charity. More here.
