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

Welcome to TORn's Walk to Rivendell for another week of exercise and encouragement, Middle Earth-style! It sounds like we'll soon be celebrating Delrond's finish for the There and Back Again solo challenge (traveling all the miles of Bilbo's journey in The Hobbit), right on grammaboodawg's heels. *starts searching virtual prize box* But now, the more pressing matter is this: what activity have you enjoyed this week on the Road, either on Earth or in Middle Earth?

There and Back Again
Group Challenge Progress

Miles reported last week: 484.85 !!!
Cumulative miles: 15685.35
Miles along the journey: 1344.51
Miles out of the Lonely Mountain: 377.51

We're following the Great River with Bilbo, Gandalf and Beorn. Actually, we're kicking back in camp at the moment, everyone taking it easy. Still can't get used to the ponies and horses gossiping with Beorn's friends...

My progress:
Miles covered this week: 8
Cumulative miles: 661
Goal: There and Back Again!

Beamer, my Hobbit and I have been walking and hiking with family and friends. We've walked to the park to celebrate the 4
th of July, had heaps of fun at the Colorado Renaissance Festival, walked to the park again with some young ones, and the kids have gone swimming. All in all, a lovely, leisurely week in summer - though some rain would be nice!

Beamer's progress:
Miles covered this week: 14
Cumulative miles: 647
Goal: Group Challenge
