How did you come up with your screen name?

  1. Years ago when I was a charter boat captain in the Caribbean, I wore eyeglasses. The sweat would pour off my brow and flood the inside of my glasses so I couldn't see. I took to wearing a bandana as a preventative measure. Hence, my friends started calling me Captain Bandana. 'Nuff said!
  2. I have been an amateur Magician for years.  Years ago when this net thing came about I did not want to disclose too much information about myself, hence the name Onemagicman.

Some buddies did not made this far in time, I honor them and remember them every day. There goes how I did come up with my screen name.

  12. Simple: I'm a Swede I'm 6'.4" and 300 pound a Real Big Swede.

    and I living in USA so all was calling me "the big guy", "the swede" and so on and one day I hade it I have become the "RealBigSwede" I have used it for almost 30 years now online. in 1992 was the first time on line and I was then "BigSwede" but the other start using it so I change it to "RealBigSwede" and never seen another that have use it.
  13. When I first joined this forum I was known as aligator with one L. Now the story, There is a saying " when your up to your butt in alligators its hard to remember that the mission was to drain the swamp", hence alligators were a bad thing.,  When be and my wife would take the Motor Home out for vacation and pull into a nice slot I would say "no Alligators here", hence a good thing.  When I got my first PC I had a young lady help me set it up. In the process she said you need a screen name (what the heck is that ? ) I said Alligator, she typed it in...Aligator(one L). so I stuck with that. Now I was away from the forum for a while and when I got back I could not log in, got my PW from Jeff but it did not work, so I open a new account.  Screen name graywolf1936(my DOB).  I always like wolfs and at 77 1/2 I am gray.  If my avatar shows, its a photo of some Italian sausage I made.
  14. I'm a Tn. Vol fan and my name is Jim

    I happened across this site after getting back into hunting after 20 or so years. I spent this past fall hiking and sitting with my bow. I joined a local hunting forum about a month before this one. When I was trying to come up with a screen name I asked myself why I what was my motivation for hunting/fishing/camping. I came up with the fact that I was simply happy to get back to the bush. And there it is. I used the same screen name here just to keep things simpler.

  17. Great thread everyone.   There are a lot of entertaining names and stories.  My nickname is a hybrid pun between what I like to do at work and what I'd rather be doing (fishing).

    I came up with my screen name when I joined another forum while researching a kayak. At the time I was working on the Local Area Network at the office during the day and lurking on a kayak fishing site by night.  All the mods people were doing to their kayaks blew my mind and I decided I had to sign up AND buy a kayak.  I was planning to visit a few piers that I've fished but this time with my kayak (ie travel from pier to pier) and  it hit me that "peer to peer" is also a type of networking and I so I made it my name.

    I gave a buddy of mine a pike my son caught.  He smoked it and that REALLY blew my mind. Last year I decided to buy a smoker and the up front research brought me to SMF.   I don't get to use the kayak as much as I'd like, but the smoker is getting a lot more popular around the house.  Plus, hanging out with the family all day smoking dinner gets a lot more points with the wife and kids.
  18. Mine is simply a combination of my home country of Canada and my wife's home country Britain and the number is the wife and me plus 2 kids

    Mine stands for Cyclone Baseball. I played for Iowa State from 89-93.
  20. My screen name is a combination of my home state (Texas) and the fact that on my days off I am constantly clearing land. I live in central Texas, which has a diverse forest. In my area we have several forms of oak trees, Eastern Cedar, Hickory, Pine with a dense underbrush of Yaupon. I have been selectively clearing my land for several years so my family started calling me a lumberjack, hence the term "axe". So you end up with Texaxe.
