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

Welcome to the Walk to Rivendell, TORn walkers, bikers, lurkers and all! We've had a happening of special magnificence here: grammaboodawg has become the second TORn walker to complete the There and Back Again solo challenge, joining silneldor (hi, sil! *waves*). Way to go, gramma!

In honor of your achievement and recognition of the work you've undertaken to make another mileage chart, and by special arrangement with the current Mayor of Hobbiton, Ms Arkenstone 'Arky' Brandybuck-Took, I hereby present you with the key to the, er, town. Well, we think it might be one of the spare keys to the back room at the Green Dragon. Actually, no one's tried it to be sure, though. Come to think of it, let's have a round of everybody's favorites to celebrate! The Mayor's buying!

There and Back Again
Group Challenge Progress

Miles reported the last two weeks: 218.7
Cumulative miles: 15200.5
Miles along the journey: 1182.89
Miles out of the Lonely Mountain: 215.89

Poor, soggy Bilbo is still skirting around Mirkwood with Gandalf and Beorn this week. In the rain. A week before Christmas.

My progress:
Miles covered the past two weeks: 13
Cumulative miles: 653
Goal: There and Back Again!

Not as many miles as I'd hoped, but Beamer and I had tons of fun rafting and hiking in southern Colorado with our troop, and we added another hike this week up in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Beamer's progress:
Miles covered the past two weeks: 13
Cumulative miles: 633
Goal: Group Challenge
