Once I get back to Bag End, then there will be a trip to the Grey Havens and back. Then there will be going back in time and trekking with Bilbo and the Dwarves. It will be a while before I have to start again.

But when I get there? Start again I shall.

Well, MissG...when you get back "home," you can always (dare I say it?) start over again!

I'm back in the saddle, riding again with the Hobbits on their return journey. It's how they got home, but it's making it go almost too fast. Already 53 miles out of Rivendell.

Well, I've put in 16.5 miles since I was last here, which takes me to a total of 71 miles. I made it to Buckleberry Ferry! Who knew it was so far? I think I'm gonna start re-reading the books too, so I can read-a-long my journey.

Sandra ~ Thanks for your report from the AT. You are doing something I've only dreamed about!

Miss G ~ "There and back again," huh? Well, you're closer than ever. You're doing GREAT!

I have reached Rivendell at last--but Rivendell from the other direction! All the way back from destruction of the ring. Now on to Bag End.

Hi all~ My husband and I started the Appalachian Trail April 15th. We are taking it slow and also visiting the local towns we encounter. We have hiked 66.8 miles so far. The mountains of Georgia have a lot of ups and downs but things should even out more in the Smokies. I am enjoying the scenery in the Chattahoochee National Forest. Sometimes when hiking, we quote something from Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit, or we see something that reminds us of these books or movies.

I saw a cool overturned tree stump that was blackened and had sharp ends. It looked like the helmet of the Witch King or something. Also, when we got to our first vista, I saw a little curved mountain off in the distance shrouded in mist. I call it "the Lonely Mountain."

I will try to post pictures when I can. Internet is hard to come by and we chose not to carry a smartphone or tablet on our trip (although that may change). I may try to blog and post pics soon.

Happy hiking - walking - trekking - adventuring to all........
Sandra emoticon

Got out to walk twice this week but 85% chance of rain today will prevent that today.

Now 24 miles from Rivendell and, amazingly, once again crossing a small stream.

I'm hoping there will be better landmarks on the final push back to Hobbiton!

Rick, it's awesome that you are back to work!

I am now only 38 miles from Rivendell. Walking parallel to the Bruinen with the sound of it to our right. I'm getting excited to see the Last Homely House once more!

I got about 8000 steps during working, which was mostly walking back and forth along a railroad track during survey work.

Spring came here this week, finally... It came with rain and I was only able to get out and walk twice, but I totalled 3 miles.

It is still snowing where I am. Okay, it was just a little spit of flakes, but I'm still miffed!

My daffodils haven't even opened up yet this spring. I'm hoping that the promise of warm weather that seems to keep moving back just a couple days will finally arrive!!

I'm still making my way on the road, but indoors. The outside holds no temptation for me yet.

Greetings all!

Spring has well and truly sprung here in the Southeastern US where I live. My tiny backyard is carpeted with fallen wisteria blossoms. Both my doxie Molly and I are scarfing down the allergy medications. Windows are open, birds are singing and temperatures are in the 70s.

Of course it's been raining for two days and temperatures are predicted to plummet one last time when the weather front moves through. But for now, at least, I can get out to walk in the brief few weeks between "too cold, windy, and raining" and "too hot and humid."

How is it where you are?

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.
