Bilbo travels with Gandalf and Beorn to the long north pass around Mirkwood. Then they stay at Beorn's house for the winter. Then Gandalf and Bilbo travel to Rivendell, there Bilbo gets medical attention. Then Gandalf and Bilbo travel the long way to The Hobbit lands.

What does audacious mean in the hobbit?

In chapter 1, Thorin says the following: "We are met together in the house of our friend and fellow conspirator, this most excellent and audacious hobbit - may the hair on his toes never fall out! all praise to his wine and ale! -" I think audacious, in this instance, means having a willingness to take risks. It may have been a poor choice of word for Thorin to make. Perhaps, if Thorin had used the word brave, courageous, heroic, or valiant, he would have gotten a more positive response from Bilbo though it seems Bilbo was not in a mood to hear any words of that kind spoken of himself so early in the story. Bilbo is a hobbit after all and hobbits never do anything unexpected.

Why didn't Bilbo visit with his hobbit friends when he got home?

The reason he didn't see his friends the moment he returned to the shire was because he found out that his relatives were about to take possession of his home and he therefore had to deal with that crisis. And as for afterwards, I think it is too going far to assume that he didn't go see his friends. All Tolkien says is that Bilbo acquires over time a reputation for being odd and that many Hobbits shy away from him and his new reputation. That's a far cry from saying Bilbo is completely alienated from all his old friends and that he never goes to see them. Tolkien says very little about Bilbo's day to day life.

As the eagles rescued Gandalf, Bilbo, and the dwarves, the birds took them first to their aeries in the Misty Mountains to rest for the night.

The Carrock was named by the skin-changer Beorn, who often used it as a lookout post.

In the Fellowship of the Ring why did Bilbo not join the fellowship on the quest?

In The Fellowship of the Ring, in the council of Elrond, Bilbo at first believes that everyone expects him to take the Ring to be destroyed, saying, "It is plain enough what you are pointing at. Bilbo the silly hobbit started this affair, and Bilbo had better finish it, or himself."However, nobody expected him to go, and Gandalf told him, "...The word was meant, and we do not doubt that you are making a valiant offer. But one beyond your strength, Bilbo. You cannot take this thing back. It has passed on. If you need my advice any longer, I should say that your part is ended, unless as a recorder. Finish your book, and leave the ending unaltered! But get ready to write a sequel." Thus, Gandalf told him very gently that he was to old, and that he was no longer needed, except to write of the fellowships adventures.Also, as Bilbo said, "I don't suppose I have the strength or luck left to deal with the Ring. It has grown, and I have not."In a nutshell, Bilbo was to old to go on any more adventures.

In 'The Hobbit' why doesn't Bilbo tell the dwarves about the ring?

The Ring was stolen, and while they had all suffered for the trip into the goblin caves, only Bilbo came out without any trouble. In addition, it was a magic Ring that begins working on its keeper at once - the possessor would not want anyone to know about it that might take it from him. It may have been the influence of the One Ring on his mind already.
