The Long Journey 2016

For an adventurer like me, I one day started pondering about something that didn’t want to leave my mind. “How long does it take to ride through all Middle Earth?” Me and my friends went all the way from Thorin’s Gate to East Rohan to see if our behinds would manage to sit on a pony’s back for such a long trip. Ever since that day we have a tradition to make the same journey after the Yule holidays.

Since the day that we first made that long trip there have been new roads opened all the way through West Rohan into Gondor. However, we will make the same journey as the original “Long Journey” just as a New Year’s tradition.

Welcome to join me, Trincia Cakewalk and my friends on this year’s Long Journey throughout almost the entire Middle Earth. We will ride from Frerin’s Court in Thorin’s Gate to Snowbourn in East Rohan. All adventurers, hobbits and possibly others with longer legs, who dare to ride all this way are welcome to join as long as you are able and have the courage.

Along the way we will take a few breaks to rest our horses’ feet, play some music, tell a story, and add more friends. If you want to play a song or tell a short story along the way, please announce this to Trincia by mail.

In Snowbourn awaits a party. Bring your picnic basket, and don’t forget to pack some extra pipeweed and fireworks!

We made it to Snowbourn last year!


Date: Saturday January 9th, 2016

Time: Gathering time: 5 bells. We leave about 15-20 minutes later. ((17:00 pm UK time/12 pm server time/18:00 CET))

Where: Gather around Frerin’s Court in Thorin’s Gate. The travel ends in Snowbourn, East Rohan.

Who can join? Anyone can join the travel as long as you dare. All are welcome!
