The One Ring Roadtrip 2022: The Scouring of the Herefordshire

A lot has happened in the three years since the original The One Ring Roadtrip in 2019.

In the lead up to #OBaWS I was expecting something to go wrong; we'd go into another lockdown or I'd test positive for Covid. It was with true joy and relief that a couple of weekends ago I arrived in Leamington Spa and walked from my digs to meet fellow Grognards at the Royal Pug, … Continue reading Owlbear and Wizard’s Staff Con 2021
