(King/Emperor) Eric of Pomerania (1381 - 1459)

"When King Erik VII of Denmark was forced from the throne, he did the only thing any self-respecting descendant of Vikings could: He joined the warriors of the sea, and hit right back at his enemies."

"Remember we will be doing a muster the first Saturday in November. Wear your 18th century gear and if you don't have any please come anyway and participate. I want this group to be inclusive so all are welcome. Men, women, and children are all welcome. I really want to reach out to those who have always wanted to be in reenactment. "

"I had a great weekend a at Fort Defiance. I chatted with several people interested in joining our group. I would like to set a muster for the 1st Saturday in November to work on gear. I want to have a muster every 2 months for gear and drill. For now it is come as you are. I eventually want to do a weekend historical trek in the area be we can talk about that once people start getting their gear together."

Some of you might be familiar with Raymond's Quiet Press for his castings and books but also check out his SteamPunk line:

Our 3rd scheduled cruise for the "8th" Annual SteamPunk Naval Veterans Expedition has been cancelled due to COVID-19.  Like the the previous cancelled cruises we were really looking forward to the Panama Canal cruise.

Our new plan is actually two back-to-back sailings on the same giant ship, the Allure of the Seas.  This in not just to hedge our bets but to give cruisers the flexibility of joining either or both cruises.  (We are staying in the same cabin for both.) 

For more information please see:

BTW - both sailings start at surprisingly good prices but the 2nd 6 day cruise to Mexico & Ruatan is only $501.00 per person for double cabin occupancy. 

SALE:  The 2nd six day sailing is on sale for just $311.00/person  on 0

"Come out and celebrate the lifeways of the 18th century at Fort Defiance. We will have re-enactors showing off different skills on both Saturday and Sunday. Also, come and see Fort Defiance and learn about the exciting programs that we are putting into place this year. "

This is an opportunity for volunteers and living history to engage with the new site staff.
