I portray a Viking from time to time. This is Stafngrimr Ullarsson Piparskeggr, warrior, poet and cook.

You should look Bruce up. He's a bit eccentric, but he seems to embrace it and has a good time. I see them rowing around the creek sometimes when I'm hunting for fat perch.
I've known about the Longship Company for decades. I used to participate a lot in the Society for Creative Anachronism.
