    embarrassing truth - trail name

    The embarrassing truth is that I was never given a trail name, or never chose one for myself. People here just call me Hack, but I don't really like that name. I just chose that as a login name on a whim.

    I am trying to find a good trail name for myself and would appreciate any good suggestions. Some of you have met me in person so may have some good ones.....

    Any good suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

    Some info about me:
    I love the outdoors and nature.
    I am a raw vegan (811rv).
    I have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
    I love hammocks.......... LOL
    I cannot stand being cold, and love tropical heat.
    I am married, with one young child.
    I am a computer programmer and live in Northern Virginia, but I am a Mechanical Engineer at heart.
    I don't like city life, and prefer the country. It is too crowded in NOVA for me.
    I want to take my hammock and go live in the jungle/rain forest/tropics......LOL
    I like making/doing things with my hands.
    I am very physically active.
    Short tempered, and impatient; I'm working on that....LOL

    There are photos of my on my site if that helps. www.HikeHaven.com
    Here is one photo:

    No worries, don't sweat it. Just get out and hike, I'm sure you'll earn one soon enough.

    Hmmm..an angry computer programmer with mechanical engineering preference who's a vegan and would rather live in the country. Interesting mix.

    Have you seen the movie Office Space? Milton burns the place down at he office he's working in. Funny character and a funny name. Milton.
    I don't think he's a vegan or does Tae Kwan Do though.

    How about "Gruberman", from the Frantics Tae Kwon Leap?

    The Frantics appeal to engineers. It's got martial arts and anger management issues? OK, it's a little skimpy on the hammock or trail thing but it does talk about the path to enlightenment...

    Yea, I used an old screen name from other forums I particpate on as well as when I play any online computer game. I like my trail name a lot more, as mime was given and pretty well earned (its Bulldog for anyone who cares to know. I can tell the story I anyone cares).

    Hi
    Your nothing like the person I imagined after looking at your photo
    Why wait to be given a name, (and whats the deal with that?) just make up one you like and stick to it. I REALLY like the one you use now.
