The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

[JRR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings]

For the first time in an outrageously large number of months, our backpacks are packed.

The only question now is: on a hillside, or beside a roaring fire in a bothy in the woods?
