Venturing out on to the Frontier
We are Venturing out on to the Frontier and undertaking a new time period of Living history and re-enacting for us  

 
 The Road Goes Ever On

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 meet.

And whither then? I cannot say.

 -- J R R Tolkien
