  • Miles Walked This Month (Apr 26th-May 31st):  80.8 miles
  • Total Miles Walked:  280 miles
  • Milestones Reached:  Traveling the Lone Lands to the Last Bridge

“Everything seemed gloomy, for the weather that day had taken a nasty turn. Mostly it had been as good as May can be, even in merry tales, but now it was cold and wet.”

~The Hobbit, Chapter 2: Roast Mutton

Ugh, that’s a nasty description isn’t it? Kind of like the weather today, actually. But I walked the farthest in one month that I have yet, so I just can’t quite feel as gloomy as Bilbo and the dwarves right now 🙂 I only have 45 miles to the Last Bridge and then things will start to get exciting!

But for now, here we are…

A Hobbit’s Walking Tale- April 2016

  • Miles Walked This Month (29th-25th):  59.8 miles
  • Total Miles Walked:  199.2 miles
  • Milestones Reached:  The Midgewater Marshes, Weathertop

“Not far ahead were dreary hills, rising higher and higher, dark with trees. On some of them were old castles with an evil look, as if they had been built by wicked people.”

~The Hobbit, Chapter 2: Roast Mutton

Hey guys! I got bogged down in the Midgewater Marshes this month. I actually missed the Weathertop mark by 0.8 of a mile, but I’m counting it, because I’m sure I can see it from here…

I’m coming up on a long stretch of lonely land (125 miles!), which is probably gonna take me two months to get through, if previous months are any indication. Better get started!
