The Mouth of Sauron has just left Hobbiton.
Surely the Fellowship took the wrong route?

Setting off from Rivendell southwards was considered more secret and safer than other routes, but surely this was mistaken. If the Company had crossed into Wilderland east of Rivendell, they could have avoided the Redhorn Pass, Moria, Isengard and the Gap of Rohan.

They could also have had the help of the Beornings and the Woodmen of Mirkwood, and come to Lorien by foot west of the Anduin, or even by boat from say the Carrock, which was a shorter river journey than the one they eventually took from Lorien to Rauros.
