Walking to Mordor -- Isengard to Minas Tirith

Miles travelled since last update: 7½ (3½ walked today)
Miles travelled so far: 227 (1891 from Bag End)
Miles still to go: 351

Percentage complete: 39%

Point reached on journey: Still riding with the Rohirrim, we followed the road as it curved easterly around the mountain spur behind Edoras.

Where I really went...

Partly for the exercise and partly because the car is in the garage having some work done to its suspension to get it through the MOT, I walked up to Brith's house while listening to the next episode of Zombies, run!. The distance stated by the app was way off. Perhaps pausing the app twice, once while I collected Brith and then once again after bringing him back so I could have a cup of tea with M & B and help them finish the crossword, confused it? Anyway, the distance as shown on the map the app produces looked right and agreed with my estimate which was based on previous occasions I've done that walk and measured the distance on an old fashioned paper map.

It's been a very busy week in college this week. I'm still having to put in extra effort to get all the courses rolling along smoothly, so there's been no time for going out taking photos. But while I was out with Brith today, I experimented with getting my phone to take a closeup of these fuchsias.
