1) Ain't dead. :D

2) Am now 30.7 miles on the way to Rivendell - we can now see across Woody End to the River

Thoroughly enjoying my first day off in a week, and that day has included logging some more miles on this quest to find a wise old elf. :D

28.6 miles in, and it's almost time for a hobbit meal (though, based on the size of their meals, one wonders how the heck they got anywhere so quickly).

My second attempt at walking around the park went much better - evidently yesterday I made every wrong turn ever. >.> This is why maps are awesome, kids!

22.4 miles toward Rivendell. I am now 4 miles into the hobbits' second day.

Good grief, hobbits.

So, today, I decided I was finally going to walk to the park near my apartment. I've lived here two and nearly a half years, and I've only driven by the thing!


8.4 miles later, I think I probably should have researched the park more? It's huge, and a tendency to go 'well, let's see where this path goes' isn't exactly the smartest.

So. 18.6 miles on the way to Rivendell. >.< The hobbits have just started off on their second day of walking to Crickhollow, and Pippin has revealed that he really isn't a morning person. Poor Pip.

Further down along the road...

I'm now 10.2 miles on the way to Rivendell - and during this leg, I totally squawked like a strangled chicken when a biker swooped by me that I hadn't seen coming. >.< Hobbiton is now out of sight, and it's about a mile until a bit of a hobbit supper.

And we're moving on! 7.6 miles on the way to Rivendell - I am, apparently, at this point here:

"As they began to climb its first slopes they looked back and saw the lights of Hobbiton far off twinkling in the gentle valley of the Water."

Almost out of sight of Hobbiton!

So, I was industrious this morning (aka crazy) and walked. I am now 4.6 miles on my way to Rivendell - I'm aaaalmost to Tookland.

There is, actually, a quote appropriate for today.

"Ah!" said Sam gloomily. "We'll just wait long enough for winter to come."
"That can't be helped," said Bilbo. "It's your fault partly, Frodo my lad; insisting on waiting for my birthday. A funny of honoring it, I can't help thinking. Not the day I should have chosen for letting the S.-B.s into Bag End. But there it is: you can't wait now till spring, and you can't go till the reports come back.

When winter first begins to bite
and stones crack in the frosty night,
when pools are black and trees are bare,
'tis evil in the Wild to fare.

But I am afraid that will be just your luck."

Yes Uncle Bilbo. Sorry, Uncle Bilbo.

So, I'm doing this

So far, I'm 2 miles on my way to Rivendell.

Also, hobbits are ridiculously hardy creatures. So, no, am not going as far or as fast as a little scholar hobbit and his gardener. WTF.
