Middle earth! Soaring, flying, Solo II racing, Ice Hockey, acting.
First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
First was in 8th grade. Best was reading it every day on the treadmill as I worked myself from 270 pounds down to 185.
Favorite Tolkien character:
Peregrin Took, because he is unwittingly the agent for change at every turn.
Second would be Fili or Kili, their inseperableness (is that a word?) appeals to me and they stand failthfully by Thorin, even through his weaknesses, to their death.
