He went on this trip in 984 Leif was only 24 years of age. Later on in life Leif became very restless in his Greenland home. So he decided to find some land. Leif asked his dad Eric the Red what he thought he said "there is no way you are going to do that" but Leif nagged and nagged so Eric finally gave in and said ok. On his way to the land Eric fell from his horse and had sprained his ankle. So now Eric was not able to go. Leif was now on his own.
