I figured that since pegkerr did the Eowyn Challenge and walked from The Shire to Mordor and back again, that this would be a breeze!
I'm tempted to join up myself. Maybe we can start an LJ team! Walks around the lakes!
Which brings up an interesting question - can you use the same footsteps for multiple virtual walking challenges? If Peg has already walked from the Shire to Mordor and back, hasn't she ALSO walked halfway across the US? Or at the very least from Edina to St. Paul and back? (I must confess that I have no idea how big Middle Earth was supposed to be).
