Actualy, Frodo and Sam are between 50-53 while they're on their journey. In the begining of Fellowship he's 33, and he leaves for Rivendale with the ring when he's 50.

I knew he was old, but I didn't think it took 17 years from the shire to when they left Rivendale.
As far as I remember, don't they say the entire thing took 3 years? Or was that JUST in the movies?

Well actually, you're sorta right. It took 3 years total from the start of the fellowship, to the destruction of Sauron. That was one thing the movies sorta failed to showcase properly. (Doesn't matter though, they're still the greatest films ever in my opinion).

I don't quite remember why there was a 17 year gap. I think it was because Gandalf had Frodo hide the ring while he did research for 17 years. Next time you watch fellowship, just remember that from the time Frodo gets the ring, to the time that Gandalf tells him it's the one ring it's a 17 year gap.

Total, it took 20 years from Bilbo's 111th bday, to the destruction of Sauron. But only 3 of those years were the "adventure" that got the deed done.

I thought you meant from when they started out from the shire to rivendale was 17 years.

Oh no. Sorry. It took 17 years from when Bildo gave the ring to frodo, to when they set out for rivendale.

Sorry for the confusion.

really? do they just age differently?

The hit puberty, or in other words "They grow up", around 30.

Bilbo lived to be 130 I think.

There Hobbits. (They age really slowly)

They physically age slower. Their coming of age was 33, as opposed to 16 in most places.
