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

My goodness, it's Thursday! (for another quarter-hour in my time zone, anyway) Whither have your Hobbitty, Elven, Dwarvish, Wizardly or Human feet trod of late? How far? And, most important, how's the weather up there?

There and Back Again
Group Challenge Progress

Miles covered since our last update: 354.4
Cumulative miles: 10355.89
Miles along the journey: 690.39
Miles out of Rivendell: 293.66

Move along, move along; nothing to see here, folks! Literally. We're in Mirkwood. Will be for a while. Remember 'way back when we were on page 31 for, like, three months or so? It was rainy. Now it's dark. Not that I'm complaining; it simply is what it is. And I seem to be channeling Eeyore; odd, that, one week before the Hobbit premiere.

My progress:
Miles covered since our last update: 16
Cumulative miles: 421
Goal: There and Back Again!

Many apologies for my neglect of the Walk posts lately. My time has been full of holiday prep, sundry meetings, and my kids' needs (they both have exceptionalities that require some attention at school at times). In other words, I'm itching to walk and poor Bill the Treadmill has been more neglected than not of late.

Beamer's progress:

Dance, Beamer, dance! She has a short dance recital this Saturday (as does her brother, the tap-dancing Hobbit).
