As I began to think about this part of the story a beautiful line from a French poem came to mind. Sam offers to help Frodo to carry the Ring and this rouses what energy remains within him but the fact remains that the task of bearing the Ring is increasingly beyond his strength. And so Sam suggests that they lighten their load. Some of the items are easy to dispose of. Frodo gladly casts away his disguise of orc shield, helmet and sword.
