Walk to Rivendell and Beyond: There and Back Again Challenge! Can't Post

And we have walked 5,000 miles
And we have walked 5,000 more
Just to be the ones who've walked 10,000 miles
Since we left Bilbo's door
(apologies to the Proclaimers)

There and Back Again
Group Challenge Progress

Miles covered last week: 56.75
Cumulative miles: 10001.49
Miles along the journey: 666.77
Miles out of Rivendell: 269.77

I figured it out: we're well over halfway there on our journey, about 7190 miles to go. That's figuring the rest of our journey out to the Lonely Mountain (about 4504 miles using our Hobbit-Wizard-13Dwarves multiplier) and back (about 1098 miles, using the Hobbit-Wizard-Shapechanger multiplier to Beorn's house, and the Hobbit-Wizard multiplier from there to Bilbo's comfy Hobbit Hole). Woohoo!

And it's time to say goodbye to Beorn's ponies, and Gandalf. He's still part of our mileage multiplier, though, since I rather suspect he's still gallivanting about... somewhere...

My progress:
Miles covered this week: 5
Cumulative miles: 405
Goal: There and Back Again!

My treadmill and my schedule are not playing nicely these days. Harrumph. But leaf-raking is fun, active, and a to-do list item!

Beamer's progress:
Miles covered this week: 3
Cumulative miles: 401
Goal: Group Challenge

Dance, as usual, for Beamer this week.
