Walk to Rivendell... and Beyond! February 22 Can't Post

Greetings Fellow Walkers!

I hope you're having fun gathering up your miles walking with the Fellowship! Let us know your progress and creative ways you're racking up that mileage.

I'm seeing lots of signs of an early Spring here in mid-Michigan, so I'm watching for the snow and cold to ease up and for my country roads to not be so deeply muddy that they suck the boots right off my feet!

My Progress: 27 miles (4824 total miles)
Cumulated 96 of 120 miles from the Morannon to Minas Tirith (via Ithilien). The remaining Fellowship and I are finally on our way to Minas Tirith. We've made it to the Riven Anduin (hang on Sam!), taking boats down river heading for Osgiliath

A warrior's quest [In reply to] Can't Post

Within the past week, I decided that I wish to be a vitality-imbued warrior-type rather than a fragile, "hangs delicately in the background" mage-type. I began running again after a recent and particularly lazy stretch of existence.

Based upon this pathway mileage site, it may be a while before I reach any milestone more significant than dear Peregrin Took having a yawn (though this event at 17.5 miles did give me a laugh).

Okay... [In reply to] Can't Post

I did a total of 15.4 miles in the last two weeks. Not much, but I am trying!

We are the fighting Uruk-Hai! We slew the great warrior! Well, yeah, first he killed a bunch of us and another whole lot of Mauhr's lads, and we had to shoot enough arrows into him to drop a Mmak. But we got him!

Howdy and Welcome! [In reply to] Can't Post

You made me giggle at Pippin's yawn, because I knew exactly where you were! And so does a special fox! We love that fox around here :D

AND I hear you about the lazy stretch. I have those all of the time! I do "lazy" best of all!

I'm so glad you're feeling inspired to get out and run again. The beauty of our Walk is that you can accumulate mileage in so many ways!

Thanks so much for jumping onto the Road... and, imho, you spend as much time in the Shire as you can! It's going to get more challenging very soon ;)

*high five*

Walk Resources to gather mileage FYI [In reply to] Can't Post

If you'd like some help keeping track of your progress in the Walk to Rivendell Charts, just PM me and I'll be happy to figure out where you are and help you keep track as you move along :) Or take a look at the resources at the end of this post. I give you a step-by-step of how I like to keep track of my progress. The hardest part of using the Charts is to decide which one to start with!

Well Done! :D [In reply to] Can't Post

You're doing great! I started a chart for you until you get your "feet" under you ;) You've accumulated 22.4 miles... which puts you right where I was just reading last night... seriously! You're still in the Shire and just had your first night sleeping on the Road. As far as I'm concerned, the more time you can spend in the Shire, the better!

Take a look at this Hobbiton to Rivendell chart and you can see mile-by-mile what you've achieved... and you can spend some quality time with some hobbits ;) In the line of 20-28 [miles]: Road rolls up and down... I typed in your mileage, the date, and your total miles accumulated.

Good for you! It's not a race, so just have fun. :D

*high five*

Walk to Rivendell... and Beyond! March 1 [In reply to] Can't Post

Greetings Fellow Travellers!

We've made it to March! I'm finally getting some very pleasant walks on my country roads with a break in the Winter weather. We got up to 60 degrees here in mid-Michigan! Incredible! We're usually in the throes of brrrrrr and snow right now (which is starting up again today). But I've witnessed 4 sure signs of Spring this past week. Buckets are hanging from my farm town's maple trees (collecting sap to make syrup); Canadian geese are flying overhead in their migration north; I smelled skunks TWICE as they come out of hibernation; and there are Robins in my yard!! Just one of these makes me giddy for good weather coming soon. Now there are 4 showing up 4 weeks early! I don't know whether to be happy (which I am ;) or nervous as it may signal a long, hot summer. We shall see!

Anyway.... I got some goodly walks on some very muddy roads; but it's just great!

How about you? How are you coming along? What's your favourite mode of gathering mileage? DO TELL! :D I like to mix it up with walks, cleaning (*urp*), building, and exercise.

My Progress: 30 miles
Cumulated 126 of 120 miles from the Morannon to Minas Tirith (via Ithilien), leaving 6 miles towards the next leg of my Quest with the Fellowship. We finally made it to Minas Tirith, hooked back up with Merry, and witnessed the Return of the King! So now the Fellowship and I have started our trip from Minas Tirith to Isengard (535 miles) along with Galadriel, Elrond, and the Elves... but only for a while with Aragorn.

Well done! :D [In reply to] Can't Post

You're still in the Shire walking from the Stock Road on toward the Brandywine and Crickhollow. This is one of the longer stretches of their early walk. Although... we know that will be changing soon enough!! *shudder*

Total Miles Accumulated: 21.8 of the 458 miles from Hobbiton to Rivendell.

THANKS! See you on the Road!

Walk to Rivendell... and Beyond! March 8 [In reply to] Can't Post

Greetings Fellow Travellers!

I hope you're having fun on your various Quests as we move along the Road. The miles do add up... and suddenly, you're there! Somewhere! ;)

I've been running around getting some big projects done around the house waiting NOT so patiently for the good weather to move in. Safe to say, however, I have not seen the turbulent weather that is hitting the north-east coastal states here in the U.S. Such punishment from just one storm is bad; but another Nor-easter storm hitting the same places less than a week later is just horrible! Hang in there, sibbies!

Feel free to share your progress and we can see where you are on your Road :) Have a GREAT WEEK!

My Progress: 32 miles
Cumulated 38 of 535 miles from the Minas Tirith to Isengard. I'm travelling with the Fellowship as we escort the Elves and hobbits to their homelands. On the way, we've stopped near Amon Din where we can hear drums in the distance. King Elessar sent his heralds to announce into the Wood that the Forest of Dradan is given to Ghn-buri-ghn and his folk and none may enter it without their leave... to which the drums suddenly stopped! Something tells me there are going to be a few more stops along the way ;)

There ya go! :D [In reply to] Can't Post

Well done! I'm going to take a little power-play here and round your mileage up from 28.8 to 29. There... that's much easier on my ol' brain. Plus I'm SURE you've done more than that in the scheme of things.

You're with the Hobbits in the Shire as they still make their way along the zig-zaggy road... I bit I think there's a rider coming along they don't know about yet ;)

See you on the Road! And THANKS!

A bit of an ANNOUNCEMENT! [In reply to] Can't Post

I will be away from my computer for a while as I stomp around NZ and several airports (*squeeee*). I'm not sure I'll have access to the internet, so I think I'll just say I'll see you on Thursday, March 29.

So save up your miles and plan on WOW-ing me when we do our little moot on the 29th.

*waves fondly* See you on the Road! Stay Safe!
