Walk to Rivendell  

A friend of mine asked a couple days ago where the mileage to Rivendell was. She found it at its usual location, the Eowyn Challenge, but because I broke it out into separate journeys years ago whle I was doing this, I asked if she wanted the individualized set. She did, and at least one other person did too, so I thought I’d put it up here in case anybody else wanted to walk to Rivendell and have their own copy of this.

Why is it 458 miles from Bag End to Rivendell but 397 miles from Rivendell to Bag End? It seems a bit careless to have lost over 60 miles.

I assume they were able to take a more efficient route home as they weren't being chased by ringwraiths. :)
