I apologize to each of you for my absence. On November 11 an elderly lady ran into my car in the parking lot of a local shopping center, trapping my in my car for about 30 minutes. Thank goodness for brawny firefighters! I have been out of commission and away from a computer for about 3 weeks and have just started getting back on my feet physically, emotionally, and financially. It would be loverly if someone would volunteer to be a co-leader in case something like this happens in the future.

Jessie

It's been a long road get'n from there to here.
It's been a long time, but my time is finally near.
I will see my dreams come alive at last.

I am starting a new thread named 'December 2012' for 'Walk Through the Months'. I should have started one for November too as we seem to have lost our Team leader. I left a couple of messages and a goodie on her sparkpage, but no reply from her. Has anyone else heard anything from JJaramilo who is MIA ?

Tomorrow needs to be a day off for me, I fear. I'm doing a 5k on Saturday, and today's ride was a real challenge. I fear I am catching DD's cold, which would suck.

Just two miles today, but I'm planning on 20 bike miles tomorrow, so I will be picking up the pace a little. Not enough to make up the difference between 200 and 500, but at least a little something!

Another 3 miles closer to Rivendell. Learning to run, instead of biking, is definitely slowing my progress!

Mel, we might actually meet in Rivendell, coming and going, if I start getting more miles in!

Hello there Simplyabundant. Sorry to read about your depression and workload, but glad to read your input and thanks for the accolade. If you are on medication for depression I can understand why you are not walking. If not, then try and do just a little each day, even 10 to 20 minutes is better than nothing. It all adds up and it all helps. Walking is also a good by-treatment for depression when the 'feel good' endorphins kick in. Take care and keep posting. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Sorry I have not been very active. This is always a difficult time of year for me, and I am dealing with some depression and the fact that this is a super-busy time at work. (Think the two are related? Hmmm...) One of the first things to go by the wayside is my walking, so I don't have any real mileage to report at this point. I mainly just wanted to say that I'm here, but I haven't been active. I will at least try to check in on a more regular basis to support and encourage those of you are making such great strides toward your destinations. Mel, you are amazing! I really do admire and applause your consistency!

I love the new team photo. That open door just invites us to wander, doesn't it?

Weekly total for Sunday, 10/21 through Saturday, 10/27 = 23.24 miles

Some things happened that made my plans "go south" the last couple of days, and I'm trying to get back on track. Today is the beginning of a new week, and even with the disruption of my plans, I did more miles this past week than the one before. That is progress!

You have 192.83 miles to reach Caras Galadon.

The Company set out again with good speed at first; but soon their way became steep and difficult. The twisting and climbing road had in many places almost disappeared, and was blocked with many fallen stones. The night grew deadly dark under great clouds. A bitter wind swirled among the rocks. By midnight they had climbed to the knees of the great mountains. The narrow path now wound under a sheer wall of cliffs to the left, above which the grim flanks of Caradhras towered up invisible in the gloom; on the right was a gulf of darkness where the land fell suddenly into a deep ravine.

You have 196.96 miles to reach Caras Galadon.

The Company set out again with good speed at first; but soon their way became steep and difficult. The twisting and climbing road had in many places almost disappeared, and was blocked with many fallen stones. The night grew deadly dark under great clouds. A bitter wind swirled among the rocks. By midnight they had climbed to the knees of the great mountains. The narrow path now wound under a sheer wall of cliffs to the left, above which the grim flanks of Caradhras towered up invisible in the gloom; on the right was a gulf of darkness where the land fell suddenly into a deep ravine.

emoticon I was thinking I have a long way to the next landmark, MissG, when I saw your post. I don't guess I should gripe. Onward!

Another 20 miles of biking today. Not many landmarks on the return trip, I fear...

It is 0.76 miles to the next landmark.
You have 200.76 miles to reach Caras Galadon.

Guided by Aragorn they struck a good path. It looked to Frodo like the remains of an ancient road, that had once been broad and well planned, from Hollin to the mountain-pass. The Moon, now at the full, rose over the mountains, and cast a pale light in which the shadows of stones were black. Many of them looked to have been worked by hands, though now they lay tumbled and ruinous in a bleak, barren land.

First of all, congratulations, MissG! That's a major milestone! And you're racking up some serious mileage there, Mel.

Secondly, I made a mistake in calculating my total miles walked yesterday. You know, when I read the excerpt about Moria, I kind of wondered how they got there that quickly. Well, the reason is that I transposed digits when I was entering them in the location finder. SO...

The correct figure, as of Monday evening IS...(ta dah!)...

You have walked 718.03 miles.
You have passed Ruined Land.
It is 3.97 miles to the next landmark.
You have 203.97 miles to reach Caras Galadon.

I have now taken myself out the door enough times in 2012 to have achieved 2,000 bicycling miles! I am very pleased about this.

The Moon now shone upon the grey face of the rock; but they could see nothing else for a while. Then slowly on the surface, where the wizard's hands had passed, faint lines appeared, like slender veins of silver running in the stone. At first they were no more than pale gossamer-threads, so fine that they only twinkled fitfully where the Moon caught them, but steadily they grew broader and clearer, until their design could be guessed.

emoticon This represents my progress up through last night, a total of 16.6 miles last week. emoticon
emoticon My goal for today is at least 4.07 miles...to get to that next landmark! emoticon

`Lie flat and still!' hissed Aragorn, pulling Sam down into the shade of a holly-bush; for a whole regiment of birds had broken away suddenly from the main host, and came, flying low, straight towards the ridge. Sam thought they were a kind of crow of large size. As they passed overhead, in so dense a throng that their shadow followed them darkly over the ground below, one harsh croak was heard.

emoticon Hope today's walk will get me to the next landmark! emoticon

I love it when Winter has finally passed. I just checked my new native shrubs and found that 4 need replacing. It appears that Grevilleas named Edna Walling Softly Softly are not growing in my soil. I shall buy the Grevillea Fireworks which is an awesome bush, very robust, and has bright red and yellow flowers. I have all next month still in Spring here in Tasmania, Australia, so plenty of time to replace them.

You have walked 94 miles.
