My new name trailname, or . . . same great service!
When I first joined the Forum I needed a "handle" or "nickname", so I made one up. I was starting
to get into skiing, and the idea of backcountry skiing, plus when I went hiking it was almost
exclusively in the mountains so the name Slopes seemed to fit. Done. But I've always been a
fan of endearing nicknames given by others so the concept of trailnames was very appealing to me.
Patiently I waited, sometimes not so patiently. :rolleyes:
So obviously the day has come, so here it is . . .
:: drumroll ::
So . . . it fits me. I would consider myself one of the "good guys" . . . posess some leadership
qualities . . . I'm always "optimistic", and like to "optimize" my gear and techniques . . .
The name was born when my buddy Mapkin (new member) saw me un-snap my down sleeves
from my down vest, snap the vest to my down 2/3 UQ (converting it into a full UQ), slide the
sleeves over my feet, and slide comfy cozy into the hammock. :shades:
So Dear Mr. Moderators when you have chance, could you please change my username to reflect . . .
My new Trailname !

I'm so proud! :D:lol::D:lol:
