Not all who wander are lost.

07 Dec
Not all who wander are lost.

The quote seemed perfect for our adventure on the road.



“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”

After seeing the front of our motor home in a video, Sharon H. provided us with the above quote and told us, “The quote “not all who wander are lost” is from the Fellowship of the Rings by J R R Tolkien.”

I chose the quote after a friend gave me a necklace with it and when we moved into our motor home for this adventure it seemed appropriate to put it on the front.

We were in Maine for the end of October and beginning of November, stopped in Ohio for about a week and have just finished our stay at the NRHA Futurity. We are headed west, eventually to California, but with many stops along the way. If you see us, wave and take a photo to share with us on Facebook or here on the blog.

Yep, we are wandering…but we are not lost.

    It is a beautiful poem/quote…and JRR Tolkein is truly a great author.
    It’s a fitting quote for you and your family.
