Wow, a lot has happened since last time!
We reached Fangorn and found the pyre of orcs... Saw Saruman (who scared away the wimpy horses). Found signs that the hobbits survived and were nearby. Followed hobbit prints to Fangorn Forest. Trail led to Treebeard's Hill, where we met Gandalf! (!!!) Gandalf whistled for Shadowfax, who brought back the wimpy horses. Now going along the bank of the Entwash (which sounds kind of gross, to be honest). But you guys! Gandalf's back!
