That was a lotta fun. That was just what I needed to do today, very cool hanging out by the river. And the food was great.

I was gonna head over after the rally, but wasn’t sure how long it would be going on… I probably should have ridden over there anyways, looks like it was a fun time and its not like I couldn’t stand to ride some extra miles.

Looks like it was a blast. I spent my Saturday under a rusty car.

I am spending my weekend on the couch and in bed. It is very boring being sick. Looks like it was a great time! Who is the guy with the kid? That is awesome! He looked Viking-like without the costume, from the looks of the photos

Thanks to edmonds for bringing some good firewood. It was *very brisk* out & great to stand around a fire with the vikings. Great photos, dwillen!

@stefb, I think that’s TheBeast w/ the kid. his stuff was make from bicycle parts, too (eg, the axe was two saddles taped together, the shield was a wheel + handlebars).

Ahhh that makes sense. I was trying to figure out what the shield was made of!

Your costumes are great! I wish I had more time to look at them; however, I have to go out and buy a refrigerator.

I’m -still- in the middle of moving but just wanted to say quickly **thank you** to all of you who were able to come and where good sports about the whole viking shenanigan! :) I had never organized something like this before, and while I know there were glitches and some delays here & there, I think everything came out just right :)

The costumes were awesome, the food delicious, the fire invigorating, the ride sunny, and the camaderie amaizing!

I shall be dropping the “pillaging” goods to the Foodbank this week!! And I think we got some good stuff for them!

Congrats to ‘The Beast’ and his son Gus, Mydriin & Marko for sporting some awesome Viking attire & winning the Viking prices!!

I think we did “Odin” proud :)

@Dan -Thanks for the photos!!! They are great!!! And so awesome you were able to catch Noah in his goose-dance, haha!!

Until next time!!! :)

I was going to read this at the picnic. (That’s the paper in my shirt pocket.) Sorry I missed it!

’twas a fearsome ride, we inspired such tremors, many a vehicle shrieked and waved their arms, begging for mercy, upon the sight of the warrior hoard.

I’d like to fourth the motion to repeat the event annually at a minimum ;)

Running late, I managed to find Stu on the road…..

downtown Viking

attentive Viking

I don’t think he recognized me in my non-Viking garb. But at least he responded politely to my tap on the horn to get his attention. (For the record, he did NOT respond to “hey there, Viking…!”)

Wait! Noah’s back? When did that happen?

He flew back north for the spring migration.

Also, you all are welcome to grab the photos I took for your facebook or whathavyou, but it is always a nice idea to mention the source when you do. Hauling around a camera and processing images is something I enjoy, but it is still a laborious task. Thanks!
