Miles walked to Rivendell: 6
2 miles today. V. disappointing, for weather was nasty: snowing & blowing. Snow made tickly prickles on my face, v. annoying. Yesterday much nicer, with clear skies & light breeze. Granted, only 35 degrees, but still v. nice, overlooking Hideous Foot Cramp that ended journey.
Have completed 6 of 458 miles. Go me! Am hoping to catch up with
Sean AstSamwise Gamgee. Wretched hobbits have head start. Anticipate catching up only in several weeks, if at all.
On positive side, hobbits must walk through snow in bare feet, whereas I have shoes. Go me!
