  1. I guess I missed this thread when I joined up. I grew up in the town I live in watching it go from a rural community to a bit of suburban. All the former farms are now housing subdivisions and I'm one of the few natives living here now, most are tranplants from NYC or Westchester County.

    Most of these people consider me a redneck because I hunt, drive a pickup, burn wood and talk different than they do lol. It's a label I wear with honor!

    It was the first thing that came to my mind when i thought of the word smoke... probably saw it in a movie or something, but we all know it was just a matter of time before someone decided to say it. I was just that someone...
     
  3. my great friend next door said how do know if you have a redneck living nextdoor when he has two smokers and portajon in the driveway at the same time

  5. This threasd is great. I really like a lot of the stories behind the names!!

    Mine? Just my first initial and my last name. Yes my last name is for real and it's TRUE. My better half is older than me...[​IMG][​IMG]
     
  6. I've been using codymcgee for years...it my first name "Cody" and "McGee" for Chick McGee from the Bob and Tom show because that guy cracks me up
     
  7. Mine is from my dive store days (worked full time at a scuba shop in Rochester, Minnesota) Every Instructor/Divemaster that helped out with teaching classes needed a 3 letter code - initials usually worked fine. I've used that name on a couple of scuba related forums and I tend to stick with it.

    Here is what I usually did on a weekend before I started smoking:


    Much warmer next to the smoker! (unless I head to the Caribbean)
     
  8. I was working in Antarctica and wanted to send my wife a Christmas gift. Found something on ebay but had to have a user name. Found out everybody and their brother is "penguin something-or-other" so I took "skua", a large scavenger/predator bird of Antarctica. '44 is my birth year.

    I'm a bit of a Seinfeld addict. I have autographed pictures and other items in my office. I even have a signed ladle from the soup nazi.

    My screen name is that of my favorite character. I use it on a several internet forums and only once a year or so does someone comment on it. Pretty easy to figure out with this background info though.

    This is a really neat thread. I'm new to the forum so I'm glad I noticed this one. I may have to read it from the beginning to get to know everyone that's been so helpful since I joined. My first experience in this forum was to read all 14+ pages of char-griller super pro mods!
     
  13. Long time firefighter. I really enjoy working rescues. Thus 'I rescue' becomes iresq.

    I have a habit of picking a screen name and then getting sick of it in a couple years (or less). I haven't gotten sick of my name in 27 years, so I figure it's a safe bet.

    nwbhoss Smoking Fanatic

    Hoss is my nickname (I have horses and do a lot of Back country riding and packing and I am a big guy)
    Since Hoss is usually taken on most forums I add NWB which stands for Northwest Bombers and this is a group of diesel addicts I belong to. The term Bombers is short for Better Off Modified Baby which is how most of us feel about our diesel trucks. So when I am towing my horse trailer to the mountains I do so in a truck that put out almost 500hp [​IMG]

    Then I take my race truck to the track run a diesel that does the quarter mile in 10.6 seconds @ 131 mph not bad for a 6,000 lb truck.

  19. I turn wooden pens, so WoodWrite came from that.
     
  20. I came up with Confederate Know How as a band name at first. Nothing ever came of it, but I've always liked it...Maybe someday CKH will be rockin it out.
