Walking Across Middle-Earth
Week Five: Second Milestone Reached, and I’m Feeling Over-Confident
Rachel arrived in Bree with her first steps of the week, and I arrived at the last minute, but it was enough to celebrate together! Rachel had the absolutely brilliant idea to mark our arrival at Bree with a wheel of Brie. This is why I’m going to marry her.
This week really showed me how this conceit is inspiring me to walk more. I desperately wanted to get to Bree, so I made sure I walked when I didn’t want to in order to get the miles I needed! I wound up arriving with just one mile to spare, which feels exactly like the sort of pressure that drove the hobbits to their last hobbit-based destination.
I think this is the last week in which it will appear that Rachel and I are in the same location. She’s only 41 miles away from Weathertop, and she’s disappearing over the horizon as I scarf down my second breakfast at the Prancing Pony.
