Elves, hobbits and dwarfs. More like hopeful idiots and condescending fools. How I got roped into this merry band of fools is beyond me. I think my services were ultimately rendered because I couldn’t resist a helpless cause. Ever since the Blade of the Ancients was bestowed upon me, I have had heard the cry of the journey in front of me. This resonates stronger than ever before as I sit below the base of Mount Doom. 
I am having trouble getting rest, my body is electric. The anticipation of fighting the dark king and his army of Orcs is unnervingly real. I look out to the men gathered in tents who are wrapped in large leaves as beds, and some celebrating the last vertical leg of their journey, I can’t but help think that I could not have done it alone. Their spirits are up for what is to come. I wish I could share their hope, it’s a bit hard too while the sulfurous scent of the underworld flicks my nostrils. I force a smile as I prop myself up against my blade. 

I can’t help but think on the eve of our battle that we are in all this for a piece of jewelry. How could a piece of forced steel be that powerful? I say that knowing exactly what my blade can do. I’m not oblivious to how powerful magic and a gift from the gods can be. But a bit of Reingold, how could it, in such a small package, be a gift of that much power? It must be destroyed. I rarely pray these days, but if there is a god that has not turned a blind eye to us, look upon these hopeful journeyman and guide us to victory.

Captian's log... err, I mean, Sir Voleron's Knightly log, supplemental;

I woke up this morning after a long restful night in the forest to @Balduranne the huntress, tip-toeing past me while stalking her prey: a sparrow.  The many steps she put in yesterday must have caused a great hunger within her, as she pounced upon on the foul with impressive cat like reflexes.  While she was devouring her prey, I set out on my excursion, dead-set upon surpassing pretty much everyone who'd passed me yesterday, save @Dax_aussie_boy, who must still have been distracted by the waterfall wrestling males just outside of Hobbiton, the poor sod.  I jaunted merrily past @Midnighttlc, whose progress was severely slowed as he wrote the script for his new foundry mission as he walked.  

In spite of me making excellent progress today, I was hindered by my indiscretions.  Just past mid-sun, I stopped by "Yee Olde Tavern" along the trail past Rivendell with my fellow country-man, @Mstfrancis, where we drank and commented upon the asses of the hot adventurers that were traveling by.  (Donkeys, you fools... not the bois).  After a few ale, weeeeeee reeeeaallllly staaaarted talking about liiiiiife and then may have passed right out. 

More details to follow on tomorrow's adventure.

All hail the Elf King or whatever...

Voleron.

It’s raining in Rivendell. It’s soft and soothing, as if it were whispering messages in code as the droplets tapped against the tent I have managed to prop up. At least it’s drowning the snoring of some of our companions on this trek to Modor. Today, I am prepared to leave my ancestral forest to head through Lothlorien and on to Rauros, if I can keep my stride. This is a journey that many of my people have not done, it is uncommon for and Elf to journey past it’s home, where it’s strength is strongest. I look up to the Misty Mountains with wide eyed wonder like many times before. I feel the land calling me to not continue, or perhaps it is the weight of my legs that is saying, one more day of rest. But alas we must forge on. 


I can’t seem to calculate to myself if the hardest part has been the 8 mile walk or the fact I turned from my people when they asked for assistance in guarding our gates. I do not know, but I can say that as I put pen to paper I feel that this is my path I am to take. It outweighs everything before it. Unless our hobbit companions are successful, Rivendell will fall eventually to the powers stirring in Modor. I cannot let that happen. Hopefully spirits and my hope will guide me through this.

Sir Voleron's Knightly log on this, the twenty-first day of May, in the year of our Elvish Lord, 2018;

Today I have trekked a modest 8,582 steps as I set out from Hobbiton, en-route to my majestic home of Rivendell.  The journey thus far has been fraught with many a aggravation.  First off, I spent the night in a Hobbit sized bed at the Wee Hobbit Inn, which was utterly unaccommodating to my Elivsh stature.  I called for Gareth, the Hobbit Inn-keep to at least come fluff my pillow part way through the night, but he rudely refused this, as well as my wake-up call request, claiming that his Hobbit foot hair required an urgent trim.  I could barely catch five minutes of sleep with @Gravity conjuring up spells in the room next to me all night.  As if any spell he cast could produce him a boyfriend, but this did nay keep him from trying, bless his empty, black heart.  The few minutes of sleep that I did enjoy, required me to sleep with one eye open, as @Calx, that rascally thief, had rented the room two down from mine.  I'd seen his thieving eyes admiring my golden knight armor at the pub and his flirtatious winks and waves were undoubtedly an effort to have me lower my guard and massive sword just log enough for him to steal my horned helmet.  This unsatisfactory lodging experience shall be captured in my Yelp review, soon to follow.

Due to the lack of wake-up call I, of course overslept and was awoken only by Kieran @suigetsu, loudly engaged in conjuring up some sort of Warlockian energy drink spell, the rancid smell of which was putrid enough to make me gag.  I watched in disgust as he downed the entire batch of home-brew that he'd named "Red Bull" or something similarly ridiculous.  He then clicked his heels three times while cackling ever loudly, before bouncing off like a hare pursuing carrot-nip and I haven't seen him since.  Sure, he's making miles, but he's not carrying the armor or mighty sword that I am.

Although I've stopped short of Rivendell tonight, the accommodations in the forest are far superior than what I endured at the Wee @GXV3 Hobbit Inn, and I for one, will be happy to be free of the many distractions of this rag-tag group of other adventurers.

All hail the Elf King and praise be unto him!

Then I track you on the middle earth map on the 1st post of this thread.

I meant whether you're going to add the steps from the app (Which are inaccurate), or the distance from GoogleMaps which we actually did (On bike)

Whew, day one complete! 
We biked with a pedometer on... But unfortunately it lowballed the distance by a crazy margin:

Our actual route was close to 30km :(
