The Hjemkomst: Thirty Years Later

 
The Hjemkomst: Thirty Years Later
In 1974, Moorhead, Minnesota native Robert Asp was a junior high school guidance counselor with a dream.

His dream?

To build a full-scale replica of the Gokstad Viking ship found in Norway in 1881.

"The Hjemkomst: Thirty Years Later" is a documentary short that chronicles the journey Asp's four children and eight friends embarked on in 1982.

With little experience or thought given to the danger they were about to face, the twelve brave souls set sail in the handmade boat, embarking on a 74-day voyage that would eventually see them greeted by the King of Norway upon their arrival.
