Word on the street is that you made the liveblogs of both Thorin and Bilbo. And if you have, let me just take a moment to thank you!!! Those blogs are so cute and make me so happy.

Actually I made quiterespectablyyours; anonymoussong was a giant enabler on that front. And then when we started talking about all the great things I’d planned for it and the timelines and all of that he was like “well, what if I made one for Thorin?” and so exileddurin happened. We kinda technically run Thorin’s blog together, though Tony primarily writes for him and I just kinda check in to make sure he’s not missing a couple words or punctuation marks here or there. 

But thank you! We also have peanut gallery blogs run by some other folk: ikizi-khama-barku-rahkas is Bifur, run by striving-artist, who’s using it to practice their Khuzdul. And I think dead dwarf peanut gallery Frerin is also making some afterlife commentary at lukhalukh. If you’re interested, please drop me a message off anon. 


These photos were taken on the way to our next stop after Stevensford, The Khama Rhino Sanctuary.  The first picture is how they mark the roads over here so that people know not to drive on them.  They line stones up, spaced out along the entirety of the road.  Seems extremely labor intensive to me rather than putting a ‘road closed’ sign at either end.  But then again, a lot of vehicles go off-roading so I guess they could pop on the road anywhere.

The second and third pic are of our picnic lunch in the scrub by the side of the road.  Mhondoro (our trusty safari vehicle) was equipped with everything!  And our guides, Jorge and Tams made sure we didn’t go hungry.

This past weekend, the group took our last ACM trip up north to Orapa and Serowe, Botswana! It wasn’t super busy, so I won’t post a full itinerary but we toured Orapa Diamond Mine, visited the Serowe museum, the Khama (former/present presidents’) family burial site and Old Palapye (city/ruins from the 1800s). Overall, it was a nice weekend and I enjoyed spending one last weekend with the full ACM group!
