Thank you all, it was an amazing trip. I hesitate posting stuff like that up here because I know it's not Middle Earth related but those ones were really nice.

Never apologize for doing what you need to do to get out in the woods! Shoes be darned, you're doing much more than I!

Those are awesome pictures! I love them just as much as anything "officially" Tolkien. It's great to see and be inspired by the actual history!

Some photos of a recent trip. Already shared on FB but thought it would be good to share them on the forum too.

The boots are from SokolWorkshop on Etsy. The same design isn't shown anymore but they are almost identical to the "Aragorn Knee high boots". Overall I'm really happy with them. If there is an issue it is that I ordered them slightly too big (my bad). However I've solved this with a thick pair of wool socks and some extra lacing.

Very inspiring Ohtarvarno, but you really need a pipe for those sitting shots!

It's in the southern Lake District in the UK. This walk was from Gummer's How to Cartmel.

Oh, and a pipe is definitely on my shopping list!

I keep saying that Iodo gets all the best spots :shock:
Now Ohtarvarno is making me jealous too.
