Today Rubyrae and myself left the Chetwood and made our way in to the Midgewater Marshes. Now I tell you what, there are bugs and there are bugs! The constant sound of “neekerbreeker neekerbreeker” is enough to send you insane. And talk about bites! I think I have bites on my bites! What do these things feast on when they can’t get hobbit, thats what I want to know.
Anyway, we settled down as best we could in as comfortable and non-marshy piece of land that we could find and rested for the night. I think we better get used to these conditions however, as Rivendell is still a long way off, and from here on conditions are likely to be quite bleak.
