Hagar is not your average Viking. My favorite is from several years ago.
Hagar comes in the door and says to his family "I've been chased, shot at,
and beat up. I lost the battle, the ship and all my crew. I need a hug." I
suspect that Hagar thru-hikes every year. Maybe I'll make that my trail
name. 'Hagar the Horrible'. I'm sure that on a thru-hike I could live up to
the 'horrible' in the body odor department. I'd need a sword and a helmet
though (both lightweight and quick drying of course).
Saunterer (or maybe Hagar?)
