TIME - October 11

Today in Middle-earth

October 11, 2941 (S.R. 1341)
1. Third day in boats. Camp on west shore.
(from Karen Wynn Fonstad, The Atlas of Middle-earth)
..."At the end of the third day, some miles up the river, they drew in to the left or western bank and disembarked. Here they were joined by the horses with other provisions and necessaries and the ponies... ...that had been sent to meet them. They packed what they could on the ponies and the rest was made into a store under a tent, but none of the men of the town would stay with them even for the night so near the shadow of the Mountains.
..."Not... ...until the songs have come true!" said they. It was easier to believe in the Dragon and less easy to believe in Thorin in these wild parts. Indeed their stores had no need of any guard, for all the land was desolate and empty. So their escort left them, making off swiftly down the river... ...although the night was already drawing on.
...They spent a cold and lonely night and their spirits fell."

October 11, 3018 (S.R. 1418)
1. Strider and the hobbits have travelled for five days since their attack at Weathertop.
(not from the appendices)
..."At the end of the fifth day the ground began once more to rise slowly out of the wide shallow valley into which they had descended. Strider now turned their course again north-eastwards."

2. He (Glorfindel) drives the Riders off the Bridge of Mitheithel.
(from the appendices)
..."'It was my lot to take the road, and I came to the Bridge of Mitheithel, and left a token there... ...Three of the servants of Sauron were upon the Bridge, but they withdrew and I pursued them westward. I came also upon two others, but they turned away southward. Since then I have searched for your trail.'"

October 11, 3019 (S.R. 1419)
1. Gandalf and the hobbits make their way home from Rivendell.
(not from the appendices)
..."At length they came to Weathertop; and it was then drawing towards evening and the shadow of the hill lay dark on the road. Then Frodo begged them to hasten, and he would not look towards the hill, but rode through its shadow with head bowed and cloak drawn close about him. That night the weather changed, and a wind came from the West laden with rain, and it blew loud and chill, and the yellow leaves whirled like birds in the air."

October 11, 1999
(wish it was in the appendices)
1. Principal photography begins for The Lord of the Rings in New Zealand a la Peter Jackson.
...*So it begins…*


We have been there and back again.
