A thousand years ago a Norse viking, Leif Eriksson, found ‘The New
World’, at least he was - probably - the first European to set foot
on the American continent.
The Viking Trail Tourism Association is celebrating this Millenium
with a lot of activities, among others a large re-enactor encampment
in Norstead near L-Anse aux Meadows on The Great Northern Peninsula
of New Foundland.
I have with very short notice been asked to participate and to show
how the vikings made their famous silver drinking cups, and here is
my sigh for help: Silver smithing tools/stake anvils are quite heavy,
especially as luggage/air transport. Is there any orchid member in
the vicinity who could borrow me some stakes? I’m leaving friday and
arriving in St. John’s/NF on Saturday morning at 10:35 AM. Please
reply to my hotmail addr.: firstname.lastname@example.org.
And if any of all you kind Orchid people will be on the Viking Trail
from Sunday 20th till Saturday 2nd September, please look me up.
