TOTAL= 464.8 / 458 miles
We made it to Rivendell! ~streamers and balloons~
I guess I'll continue on to Lothlorien, next, with the modest goal of getting there by the end of the year. It's roughly the same distance from Rivendell to Lothlorien as it is from Hobbiton to Rivendell.
So... Let's start the counter over again! I'll take my "leftover" miles (surplus above 458) and apply them to the new journey.
From Rivendell to Lothlorien:
TOTAL= 6.8 / 462 miles
We've climbed out of the valley onto the moors. Now that we're the Fellowship of the Ring, there are new people to talk to and new stories to swap. ;o)
