In this week’s episode of The Adelaide Show, we chat with Adelaide business advisor extraordinaire, Trent Mader, about his Walking Pilgrimage From Adelaide, or should I say, pilgrimages plural!
Also this week, the SA Drink Of The Week is from Howard Vineyard in Nairne.
Our new sponsor, Adelaide Night And Day Family Therapy, continues tonight, with principal, Brett Williams, explaining how systems therapy works and how it is different from other forms of therapy and psychological counselling.
And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we have a new song from Donnarumma, described by one critic as a song that “punches you in the face”.

Trent Mader has more than 20 years of experience working with businesses in the food and agribusiness sector, he’s been executive officer of the Riverland Development Corporation, and he’s worked in both the public and private sectors in trying to help regional communities and enterprises generate profitable outcomes. But we’re not going to talk about any of that today. Instead, we’re going to sidle up next to him to find out why, how, and where he escapes for a few weeks at a time and walks hundreds of kilometres on walking pilgrimage treks around the world, especially the Camino di Santiago.
The longest journey begins with the first step, so my first question is: what is the location and duration of the next walk you are planning?
What number walk is this?
What prompted it? Health scare?
Some of us go walking on a weekend afternoon, perhaps around Morialta, what’s the difference between sweating for a couple of hours on a once off basis vs doing a longer walk, day after day?
How do you prepare?
Dr Nathan Harten from iNform Health and Fitness heard you were coming on the show and they have programs for people who are planning to go on walking tours. So he has a few questions he’d like me to put to you.
1. Where do you do most of your training? Do you have some favourite walks around Adelaide? (Dave Lowry from iNform Health has written a blog about his favourite exercise locations here: My top 6 green and blue places around Adelaide YOU should explore this weekend!)
2. Have you had any set backs along the way and what did you do to overcome them?
3. Will you be using walking poles?
How do you choose your walking tour destinations?What do you look for, what do you avoid?
Tell us about the most popular ones.Tell us about this pilgrimage
What are amenities like?
What do you wear?
How do you pack?
You take many gadgets?
Is it spiritual?Could you achieve the same enjoyment somewhere in SA?
If someone becomes inspired by you, what’s your advice about how to choose a route and prepare?
In the musical pilgrimage, we have a new song from Donnarumma called Rollercoaster.
Donnarumma has a national tour planned in early 2019, with the Crown And Anchor their first stop on January 17.
