    But Frodo got delayed in the forest with the spiders ("short cuts make long delays"), Bilbo and dwarves took the road; also, there was the fact that after Bree (or was it Brill) Frodo had to take a longer more hidden route.

    Bilbo actually took the longer of the two. The spiders were in mirkwood on the other side of the misty mountains. We could say bilbo got delayed by the trolls by that was one night, and they didn't delay they kept going with out sleep. Frodo spent time relaxing in his house by the water, then spent 3 nights with Tom, then spent 2 more nights at the prancing pony, WHILE avoiding the roads, AND THEN he beats bilbo's time to rivendale?

    Wasn't it Biblo that spent time with Tom Bombadill? Bilbo got lost in the the mountain, met up with Golum, got the ring, etc. Also, freaking dwarves are slow, short legs, no lavawalker, etc.

    No, Frodo was Tom Bombadil, they cut it out of the movies (thank god). Bilbo did get lost in the misty mountains, but that's east of Rivendale, that was all afterwards.

    I guess it did take Bilbo a month longer. I liked Tom Bombadil, bear tank. I loved the movies, but disliked that the final chapters in the Shire were omitted - that' was kind of the whole point of the story of the Hobbits.

    Re-read them! Hell I do almost every year ish. Just a chapter two a day isn't that hard to find time for. And when you haven't picked them up in the longest time, its like reading them for the first time all over again
