walking to Rivendell  
Thus far in my walk to Rivendell, I've walked with Frodo and Sam from Hobbiton to Mount Doom (1779 miles), and then have backtracked to Rauros to start different parts of the journey with other characters. I've just completed Merry and Pippin's leg from Rauros Falls to Isengard (355 miles), for a grand whacking total of 2134 miles in the last three and a half (or slightly more) years.

My next options are pretty much either follow Merry and the Rohirrim to Minas Tirith (578 miles) or Pippin and Gandalf to Minas Tirith (517 miles). At the rate I've been going, it's going to take me most of the next year to do *either* leg of that journey. I may go with Merry, just so the next leg to look forward to is (a little tiny bit) shorter. It'll be, like, 2009 before I get to walking Aragorn's travels. Oi. :) And I think I shall break these longer legs up into shorter chunks, because nearly 600 miles is too much to contemplate right now. :)

So it's to Dunharrow, 198 miles from Isengard, and then 380 miles on to Minas Tirith. That works for me. Cool. :)

miles to Dunharrow: 3

In the meantime, I got a marriage proposal in my email this morning. It was that, or a copy of the fudge recipe, mylescorcoran said. Ted looked a bit miffed, so I gave him the fudge recipe. :)

I read that bit and thought "Oy! Just 'cos Aragorn's long-legged, you can't go breaking them...!"

Then I read it again. The natural defensiveness of the long-legged, I guess; we look after our own.

Have a nice walk...

*laughs* No, no, I don't want to break anybody's long legs. I like long legs. :)

And if I'd been cleverer, I'd have used this icon for that response.

Wow! You have a gams icon! And it's Friday!

In my defense it was really good fudge. sammywol has hidden the remainder somewhere in the house. Curses.

Actually, a marriage proposal is one of the less racy things I've been offered in exchange for fudge. :)

Well, we Europeans are pretty reserved compared to North Americans, and I hardly know you.

But if there's more fudge in the equation, I'll talk to sammywol and see if I can take you the dog track.

It was that kind of racing, right?

I have taken my revenge by hiding what remains of the fudge. It was looking like i would only get one piece otherwise. (Now he knows what went into it Mr Wol is a shade less enthusiastic about eating it by the pound though - doesn't mean he won't polish the lot off if her finds it mind you.)

Excellent fudge anyway!

I bet all those walks around London didn't hurt ye olde milage meter. :-) Going to be tired for WEEKS!
