Walk to Rivendell... and Beyond! May 31 Can't Post

Greetings Fellow Walkers!

Here we are at the end of May... and may I wish you all a very satisfying month of walking, working, and/or playing as you accumulate your miles with the Fellowship!

Let us know how you're doing! It's always fun to share achievements or commiserate with those who understand how Real Life can affect our days. I'm very happy to help you follow any chart you decide to use (if any) either here or feel free to pm me for those secret journeys ;)

My Progress: 31 miles
Cumulated 369 of 535 miles from Minas Tirith to Isengard. The Fellowship, Elves, Men and I have finally reached Edoras and passed the barrow mounds. We stay for Thťodenís funeral. Arwen and Elrond go into the hills for their last meeting. Arwen returns to Minas Tirith while the rest of us head for Helmís Deep.

FitBit says 9.4 miles since my last post
Congrats on 31!

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 Mauhķr's lads, and we had to shoot enough arrows into him to drop a MŻmak. But we got him!

Hi Attalus! :D [In reply to] Can't Post

Well Done!

You've gone 105.8 miles (rounded up to 106) The hobbits and you have left Tom's house and are riding to the Barrow-downs. Don't stop for a nap or anything. Just keep moving!

Restarted at the start of May and... [In reply to] Can't Post

Iím currently making nice progress in a fine morning in the Barrow Downs (104 miles into the journey). So far it seems like all the stories are just fake: what could possibly go wrong?Wink

Welcome Fellow Travellers!

How are you doing on your journeys? I've had a very busy week! Lots of walks and yard work, so I've made it down the Road a bit okay :)

DO TELL you your progress and if you're enjoying the scenery along the way.

My Progress: 34 miles
Cumulated 403 of 535 miles from Minas Tirith to Isengard. The Fellowship, Elves, Men and I are riding for Helmís Deep.

You made it through a big danger... [In reply to] Can't Post

Well Done on your progress! :D

You've gone 114.1 miles (rounded down to 114). The hobbits and you were captured by the Barrow-wights. Luckily, Frodo remembered Tomís song that brought Bombadil to your rescue right away. You also became owners of Westernesse blades found in the Barrows.


Keep on truckin' :D

Looks like I got out of the barrow too [In reply to] Can't Post

Now at 118 miles - which means I'm 'riding North through a gap'.
Also, just brought up the 3,000 km on my pedometer, which in a strange mashup, is the one provided by the Pokemon Go game. I'm not sire which kinds of Pokemon one might find in a barrow though - I was pleased enough to get out having only lost my clothes....

Walk to Rivendell... and Beyond! June 14 [In reply to] Can't Post

Greetings Fellow Walkers!

Can you believe we're already halfway through the month of June!?! WOW! For those who are enjoying the warmer weather months, I hope you've been able to avoid the recent storms, fires and heat. For those dealing with the colder months... hang in there! I hope your winter is mild and quiet :)

So how are you coming along on your various Quests? Are you feeling like you're making headway? Short bursts of activity definitely gets the job done as well as marathon activity... so carry on and enjoy the view... and achievements! You can do it!

I'm getting some serious yard work done and going on daily walks with my g'son, so it's been a very satisfying season :)

My Progress: 30 miles
Cumulated 433 of 535 miles from Minas Tirith to Isengard. The Fellowship, Elves, Men and I are still riding for Helmís Deep. It's been nice to camp out in peace and quiet.

Please let me know if you'd like some input on how to do the Walk Charts. I'll be happy to take the road with you :D

Anyone seen my ponies? (June 16th) [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm at 136 miles - so it's Day 8 and I'm one mile out of the Prancing Pony.

Not sure whether to review Prancing Pony on Trip Advisor, & if so how many stars to give it - nice place, but got burgles in the night.

Walk to Rivendell... and Beyond! June 21 [In reply to] Can't Post

Greetings Fellow Walkers! :D

Happy Summer Solstice! The longest day of the year is upon us. What are you going to do with it? ;)

My visiting Baltimore g'son and I have been on many adventures this past week and have enjoyed many walks on my country roads. We were out star gazing last night... incredible!

So how are you coming along on your journey? The summertime in much of the world really makes getting out and about so much easier. Do you have anything on your summer (or winter) bucket-list you hope to do? Do tell... and do have fun no matter what you do with your days :D

My Progress: 32 miles
Cumulated 465 of 535 miles from Minas Tirith to Isengard. The Fellowship, Elves, Men and I have finally reached the Deeping Coomb at Helm's Deep.

Let me know if you'd like some help keeping track of your walks using the Charts... post here or pm me. We'll get on the road together!

Greetings Fellow Walkers!

I hope you're enjoying your walks as much as I am :) I'm nearly done with my current chart, so I'm geeked about that! I'm also getting as many adventures in with my g'son as possible before he leaves for home next week.

So how are you coming on your Quest? We have the 4th of July holiday coming up next week here in the States, so there are a lot of people with special plans to celebrate the holiday. Have you got any plans?

If you'd like some help with using the charts and keeping track of your progress with the Fellowship, I'll be happy to walk with you and keep notes. Take care... and have a wonderful week/weekend! :)


My Progress: 32 miles
Cumulated 497 of 535 miles from Minas Tirith to Isengard. The Fellowship, Elves, Men and I are at Helm's Deep. We don't stay long as we head for the Fords of Isen; but not before Gimli shows Legolas the Glittering Caves of Aglarond.

Walk to Rivendell... and Beyond!! July 5 [In reply to] Can't Post

Greetings Fellow Travellers!


I hope those who celebrate the 4th of July had a BANG-UP time with fireworks, good food, friends and family :) My family and I have been doing a LOT of walking and yard work, so the miles are adding up!



How are you coming along with your Quest? What is your favourite way to accumulate your miles? DO TELL... and I'll see you on the Road :D


My Progress: 29 miles
Cumulated 526 of 535 miles from Minas Tirith to Isengard. The Fellowship, Elves, Men and I are still riding to Isengard and have just crossed the south end of the Wizardís Vale. All around are newly planted trees and shrubs.
