    I've got fifteen gazillion online login accounts for work and personal stuff. Having seen the other names here I regret being so un-creative but when I joined up I had no idea I'd stick around so long.
    I also had no idea the screen name would be such a distinguishing mark for the people behind the keyboards. Meeting a few of them at the rally was fun to get to know the back story on the nicknames.

    All I could think of when I joined was putting my name and DH's name together. So I did. [:D]

    (and since I'm the main poster here - DH just browses - I put my name first ... after all, Ladies First!)

    Uhmmmm.... has anyone ever heard the song? I'll just leave it at that :) 77 was just an add on so I wouldn't duplicate someone else's screen name when I started using it about 10 years ago.

    The first tent trailer we had as a kid growing up was a 1965 Nimrod Riviera. We inherited it in the early 90's,
    and used it before we bought a tent in '98. I loved that Nimrod, and after having a teardrop for
    3 years, we bought our Jayco.

    This is my gamertag handle for my PS3 and one email account....I love, love, love anything and everything Halloween...even as a kid...didn't care for Christmas (everyone is always telling you to be good for Santa) but for Halloween you get to run amuck in a dark neighborhood..begging for candy..playing tricks on neighbors...and scaring the hell out of yourself and your friends...what more could anyone ask for? Can't wait to spend Halloween at a CG with the PUP.....saw a few places in Michigan that do that...not here in CO :(....

    Last name. Most people call me by my last name or some variant (i.e. Wolfman)....lucky 13 at the end and first initial at the beginning.

    I am an avid fisherman and my wife is Mexican (I am white - like I burn with SPF 80 sunblock white), I am known on a few NW fishing blogs as "Gringo Pescador" (gringo fisherman). From that the nickname Gringo was created.

    i'm an IT guy now, we used a chat to communicate at work where we picked goofy names.

    i started with ears magoo, then when the USMC Reserves promoted me to Gunny, i changed to gunny magoo. when they (USMCR) made another bad decision and promoted me to Master Sergeant (aka top), i changed to top magoo.

    Long story short, I'm an avid freediver and lost a "Flipper" on one dive. Dove the remainer of the dive with only the one fin and got my limit of abalone and fish!

    [LOL] Love reading everyone's stories!

    Last June when school let out we had reservations to go camping in southern Virginia in our tent. Weather forecast was 105 degrees. Having tent-camped in VA summer heat and thunderstorms before, we cancelled the trip and it looked like we would get no vacations that summer. Telling my sad tale to a co-worker, she told me about how her family had camped in a popup when she was a kid. I was on craigslist in five minutes. Two weeks later we bought our NTU 1994 popup knowing nothing about PUPs. Spent all summer (in 100+ degree heat and daily thunderstorms) restoring the pup. Been out 7 times so far and love every mintue. Got a massive storm this past week while camping - we were giggling about how awesome the PUP was holding up. So for us, there will be no more tent.
