Why did Frodo wait so long to leave Hobbiton? Message Board

Ok, you're Frodo, see, and you've just been told that your ring is superpowerful, and the enemy is looking for you. Does it make sense to wait four months before heading for Rivendell? Isn't that a rather cavelier attitude?

ASAGO posts on 1/31/2006 4:16:29 PM Frodo left with the elves after the ring is destroyed because he was in fact the bearer of the ring of power along with bilbo and all the other ring holders. Its almost like taking a herion attic totally away from his enviorment so the drug is off his mind (out of sight out of mind) the ring has had such control over all the bearers it will slowly destroy them. So for them they leave middle earth they call it the end of days, and it is the time of man.

alphonse posts on 3/17/2005 1:58:37 PM Frodo should have left earlier but butterbur at the prancing pony in bree failed to forward a message from gandalf to frodo in the shire informing him to leave immediately. I believe that gadalf informed butterbur that if he didn't return in 3 days he was to send the message to frodo. butterbur was an old foolish forgetful hobbit.
TinyTim posts on 3/11/2005 5:18:20 PM Frodo left the shire beacause Gandalf was telling him that it was necessary to do so and Frodo likes Gandalf so of corse he's going to go along with it.
