Six years ago I started following Frodo's path from Bag End to Rivendell and beyond as a way to get myself up and walking more often. I counted every mile and compared my progress to Frodo's. I did it faithfully for a long time, but then I stopped. Or at least I stopped counting miles and have lost track of where in Middle Earth I'd be.
So today I'm starting over. This time I'm following the path of Bilbo, in The Hobbit. The first leg of the journey is 357 miles from Bag End to Rivendell. So far today, I've walked 1.5 miles.
