Honestly, if you really think about it, Frodo went through way more than Bilbo. Bilbo went on an adventure, but he didn't really get hurt at all. He just got in scary situations a lot. Frodo walked probly as much as Bilbo did if not more, and that's with the temptation of the ring, the possible treachery of everyone he loves, the death of Gandalf and Boromir, and the closer he got to Mount Doom, the heavier the ring got for him. Physically and psychologically, not to mention the lack of food and water towards the end of the journey, especially while in a hot wasteland, and he had to deal with Gollum's ******** for half the journey, and then lose his finger, his pet (kinda), and in the end NOT EVEN GET TO GO HOME!

Bilbo's journey is more similar to what Mary and Pippin when through, minus the climactic battle of Minis Tirith.

Well you also have to deal with the fact that 2 of Bilbos friends was killed (Feli and Keli) and if you think about it, none of Frodos friends really "Died".

Fili and Kili died trying to protect Thorin who was Mortally wounded (Close to Death) during the battle of five armies...

He was warming up to Boromir, so they were fast becoming friends. And for most of the journey, Frodo thought everyone else was dead, not to mention ANYONE HE KNEW AT THE SHIRE was dead.

yeah but frodo really only carried the ring, Sam did all the ******* work

I guess it depends on your take on it.

Frodo's burden was supposed to represent the burden of sin. In other words, the One Ring represented all temptation. Frodo, being the good Bible-beater that he is, was able to withstand this temptation until the very end, whereupon he is saved by an act of God.

(No I'm not religious, but this was the author's intent.)

So carrying a ring that perverts your very being every second isn't work? I agree that Sam did his part but I think people really underestimate Frodo's workload throughout the trilogy
