, with major sponsor The Lord of the Rings: War in the North on board,  is heading to DragonCon in Atlanta, Georgia, via the roadways of America and broadcasting the event LIVE on TORn. Along the way we are taking our little Gandalf to get lots of photos with him and to meet TORn readers in a few cities along the way before we hand him off in Atlanta and send him to Europe!. (More about Gandalf soon as we unveil the whole project with a new website dedicated just to getting the statue in the hands of fans for photos and to “handoff the Gandalf.” Our trip is corporately sponsored by The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, releasing November 1st in North America. Other sponsor’s include everybody’s favorite LOTR jeweler Badali Jewelry and “The Website for People Who Love Britain,” Anglotopia.

Check our schedule below carefully and if we are coming to your area and you want to arrange a meetup, please email with the subject “Road to DragonCon” and let us know if you can meet our estimated schedule as close to the freeway as possible.

Support and invitations on Facebook and via email have been incredible and we appreciate the enthusiasm and the invitations, but our schedule is a bit hasty to say the least so please know we would love to stop everywhere. If you are on or near the route however, we would love to take a moment and meet. Other sponsors who are interested in helping this not-for-profit enterprise (a gas station chain or a tour bus agency perhaps?) please get in touch.

Look for many further details in the coming days. Also follow us on Facebook and Twitter at TheOneRingNet
