Where is that error, Lynn? The site's "Hobbiton to Rivendell"
mileage listing is here:
And like the rest of the charts, it's derived from Karen Fonstad's
_Atlas_ (with her blessing), which is a pretty scrupulous work. In
this case, it follows Frodo's journey, and so walkers don't even pass
through Hobbiton, heading first west from Bag End, then south through
the fields, crossing the Water and Road west of the village, and so
on into Tookland and beyond. At the 61 mile point, the chart
has "Edges of fields worked by Farmer Maggot".
P.S. Sorry for the double-post yesterday. -MTD
