Such a good gift for my birthday this was, even if I did have to beta it! *g* You captured Aragorn's stoicism well... he may not have much, but he's grateful for what he does have. And of course, the glimpse into how he might have learned his woodsman skills from Erestor is such a treat. I enjoyed beta'ing this and I enjoyed reading this again just now. Thanks for the gift!
As always, m'dear, you are MOST welcome!
