We had a very quiet Easter--just the two of us for dinner, so we had pork chops and salad. I got in an hour on the ski machine, so that was good.

I've now walked and ridden 6631 miles. 162 left to get back to Rivendell.

Crossed another stream....

I am looking forward to the trip back to Hobbiton from Rivendell, though. There will be more things happening along that part of the trip!

I haven't posted mileage in a while. The next few weeks I will be in training for an adventure of a lifetime. My husband and I are going to attempt a thru-hike on the Appalachian Trail starting April 15th! We are undecided about our starting point at the moment, but the trail from Georgia to Maine is over 2100 miles, or 5 million steps!

I will be resupplying in town about once ever 7-10 days. Some towns will have internet at public libraries, hostels, etc. I hope to give an update here on my progress.

I'm trying to be a realist about this hike. Of the 2000 hikers that start out each year on the AT, only 10% make it all the way through. We're ready for a challenge, and no matter where our personal trail takes us, it will be a life-changing experience. Just wanted to share.

I am now 1027 miles along the road back to Hobbiton. We have just parted company with the Lady Galadriel and the rest of the elves who are returning to Lothlorien. About 200 more miles to Rivendell. I wish it would warm up so I could get my "pony" out and start riding these miles!

I walked .652 miles today. It's a start. LOL. I guess I spent a month staring back at Hobbiton feeling homesick or I found a really good mushroom patch. Maybe I wandered into a fairy ring and visited with my fairy cousins for awhile. Whatever the case, it felt good to be walking again. Now, I'm going to have to work my way back up to being able to walk a mile.

Sorry to read about everyone's 'downs'. I'm on more meds and they are making me just so tired... I slept this afternoon away. Never mind, we all have our crosses to bear.

Coccyx trouble is not fun Miss G. I snapped mine off in 1988 and it's still floating around somewhere .. was told if it ever gets stuck in my spine then I'm in real trouble. I'll never forget when it happened, and took me a good 6 months to get over it. Even today when I rise from sitting too long I can feel 'that' pull. Sure hope you come right, girlfriend.

Hi Everyone!

Can you believe it is March already!?! Where HAS the time gone.

Based on past performance, I have revised and simplified our team goals. Goal #1 remains the same ~ walk a mile a day.

Goal #2 has been significantly changed. Instead of the goal of adding a mile a day, which didn't seem to be working out for most of us, Goal #2 is now

SET AND ACHIEVE 1 PERSONAL GOAL 1 TIME PER WEEK ~ Select a personally meaningful goal for yourself each week and achieve it. What types of goal? Read a chapter of Tolkien a week, increase your daily walking to 2 miles, add an additional workout once a week, say something nice to yourself every day ... something meaningful to YOU that will help you achieve your overall goal and feel better about yourself. Although we have nearly 40 group members, less that 1/4 of them are active. That is why our monthly goal is set so low.

We are shooting for 20 checkmarks a month. That's just 5 of us reaching this goal on a weekly basis. There is a new Forum ~ Personal Goals ~ with a monthly topic if you'd like to share your weekly goal.

On a personal note: I've been leader of this group for 6 months now and I'd like to ask the group if they are satisfied with the way the group is administered. You can respond to me privately, if you like.

Also, I'd like to share leadership of the group. If you are interested, please apply.
