    Hi guys.

    This is actually my second post. I found this forum by accident last night and found so much useful information that I decided to join and see if someone could help me out with the rest. So...I've posted once before this, but I'm still new enough to write a little presentation.

    So, here goes. I'm 46 years old (soon). Always more or less hated the outdoors until a few years back. My family would always go for hikes in the mountain or woods, but never more than just a day. That means I'm pretty comfortable outdoors, but there are "a few" skills I'm lacking. As much as possible I like to engage in reenactment. I've always been interested in the viking era, but up until recently I've stuck with the later middle ages, full contact sword fighting and such. Now I'm about to join a viking fighting club hoping to utilize my blade work and partake more in the reenactment camps. I'm also a dog person.

    So far this forum's been an amazing asset and the people have been nothing but extremely helpful dealing with my ignorance. I hope I won't wear you out, and hopefully I'll be able to give a little back as well.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention I'm from just outside Oslo, Norway :)
