Congratulations to [livejournal.com profile] giraffeaholic, who has reached Lothlorien and is now headed on a relaxing river journey down to Rauros Falls. I'm sure she'll have a splendid trip, especially since the Elves packed all those goodies (Hey, anyone seen the lembas? They were right over by the hobbits...).

Our long walker this week is [livejournal.com profile] koralleen, with over 15 miles! Now that's a pleasant surprise!

Last shields of 2009:

- 21st for [livejournal.com profile] thirdbase
- 130th for [livejournal.com profile] lonebear

Question

So how many miles is it from Rauros to Isengard via Aragorn's path? The site I look at has 470 . . .

It says 470 in one place, and 484 in another (at the bottom of http://home.insightbb.com/~eowynchallenge/Tools/Rauros_Isengard/rauros_isengard.html). I'm not sure why it's never been corrected on that site, but the way I rationalized it is that you get to Isengard at 470, and then you do the Isengard Half, a 14 mile trek to see all the flooded bits and review all the goodies that Saruman left for the taking. If you object exceedingly to doing the extra 14 miles, I can take them out, but you're only about 3 miles away from completing those extra miles, and everybody ELSE did it, so, you know... (Hey, look! A bridge! Let's jump off!)

As usual, your arithmetic is flawless . . .
