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

Where have our wanderings brought us this week?
How far have we traveled?
With whom do we go?

It's so good to have new and returning folks around on the Walk to Rivendell; feel free to join us, for a couple miles or a few hundred, whatever you'd like to contribute!

There and Back Again
Group Challenge Progress

Miles reported last week: 208.9
Cumulative miles: 13844.46
Miles along the journey: 922.96
Miles out of Rivendell: 525.96

Oh, don't we just love camping in icky places... like, say, the side of a mountain that's currently being occupied by a great stinking dragon. Poor Bilbo; he doesn't look too happy about signing on as the expedition's burglar. Crazy

My progress:
Miles covered this week: 18
Cumulative miles: 575
Goal: There and Back Again!

Most of my miles this past week are for landscaping and housecleaning. Even the kids got in on the cleaning action this past Saturday; they were downright helpful! I was able to get eight metal posts pounded into the ground, mostly straight and level, and I'm digging my way through the weeds and mostly-dead raspberries to make way for the new paths (yay, precipitation, making the ground workable!). My hands are in interesting shape, though; I've been removing tiny, insidious raspberry thorns that I pick up from the dead canes all week!

Beamer's progress:
Miles covered this week: 11
Cumulative miles: 553
Goal: Group Challenge
