    Well, my friends gave me the name after driving with me for many years in my youth. Mr. Toad from Wind in the Willows had a habit of, um, bouncing off things with his motorcar...

    It's my rock crawling Jeep's nickname, and the reason my wheeling buddies call me "Desert".

    Mine name, McGyver, was given to my by my co-workers when I was stationed at Torrejon AB, Spain between 1988 and 1991. I had an uncanny ability to find a way to make things work, either by finding a work around, or field fixing the problem so that we could get the job done. The name stuck, and it has been my online nickname as long as I have been online.

    Take Care and Check Six!

    Actually, my wife did in a round about way. She is half my age, (lucky me), and told me one day that I was her Penguin. I asked her what she meant by that. She said that Penguins mate for life. So it kinda stuck and we use it often for various things, however, I was typing it in one day and she pointed out that I mispelled it using a "q" instead of a "g". We both got a good laugh and it stayed. I changed it back to "g" for my handle here so as not to be mislabled as a dumb Southerner, :-D I love her dearly and am blessed to have her.

    Long time reader, first time poster...glad to be on.

    Yoopers, for those who haven't seen the new write-up in dictionaries across the country, are awesome people. Though I was born in San Francisco, I've been in the most northern part of Michigan for whatever I can remember. If you ever meet any Yoopers while camping, hang out with them. Our accent is fantastic as it is not the same as people from Minnesota, nor is it Canadian. When enough Finnish descendants populate an area the size of NH, funny things will happen. Yoopers on the central and western part are Packer Fans, more Lions fans to the east.

    Of course, I am a Niner fan.

    So, I'm a Yooper. Since Super rhymed, I thought I'd go with it. If I could, I'd be using this as my avatar...alas, I have yet to figure it out.

    I was watching the movie Cars with my kids when signing up. One of the characters was named Wingo. Figured that was better than Snotrod.

    I (later we) used to visit Negril, Jamaica once a year. Going back next Feb for our 10th anniv. It's my handle on ebay and a few other places, just love it there... but glad we discovered great camping spots here in GA, so much bang for the buck. Looking forward to going from tent to Pup soon.

    Mine is pretty simple

    It's my name plus I'm a very big guy, so it's how most people refer to me.

    The number is because it's my lucky number and I've owned several 71 chevy trucks.
