Happy Holidays and New Year

This is David. The holidays were very busy and there is a lot to update everyone on. I went to visit the “Viking” in Saint Charles, Illinois just before the end of the year. It is a full-size long boat that was built in Norway in the 1890s and sailed to the World Exposition in Chicago. The crew went straight across the Atlantic. And that was the test voyage. It was the first long boat built based on the long boats that were excavated in Norway. I will put some pictures up as I was hosted by some of the volunteers and spent a great Saturday morning talking about Viking boats.
