Today in Middle-Earth: Strider and the hobbits leave Bree (September 30th, 3018 T.A.)
After the Road had run down some way, and had left Bree-hill standing tall and brown behind, they came on a narrow track that led off towards the North. ‘This is where we leave the open and take to cover,’ said Strider.
‘Not a “short cut”, I hope,’ said Pippin. ‘Our last short cut through woods nearly ended in disaster.’
‘Ah, but you had not got me with you then,’ laughed Strider. ‘My cuts, short or long, don’t go wrong.’ He took a look up and down the Road. No one was in sight; and he led the way quickly down towards the wooded valley.

Celebrían (sailed West T.A. 2510)
Celebrían was the daughter of Celeborn and Galadriel. As the wife of Elrond, she was known as Lady of Rivendell. She was the mother of Arwen and the twins Elrohir and Elladan.
In the year T.A. 2509 Celebrían was captured and tortured by orcs. She was rescued by her sons, yet had received a poisonous wound. Though Elrond healed her, she would not remain in Middle-earth, and sailed into the West the following year.
