Despite starting much earlier we just are not getting many hikes in. I think it has to do with my son's schedule, guests, and the weather. we did seize the opportunity today to get out into the woods. it rained early this morning and we are supposed to have possibly severe thunderstorms later today, but for the last hour or so it's been Ok. We only went a couple miles, but it was something! It's hot and muggy out. Yuck so it was slow going and felt harder than it should have!
So our walk/hike/jog total is now about 40 miles. This is way behind where I imagined we would be by this point but still moving forward. On our trip to Mordor we've reached about the evening of day two (ouch!) not quite up to the camping place at woody end. Whew! I can't believe we are not even half way to Tom Bombadil's house yet!
