    Totally blind in one eye for a hiking season, hence dead eye. After I had surgery, light always seems real bright, so I squint with that eye, like I'm taking aim, so deadeye still works. When I start my AT thru, I'll let events take their course and give me a new name.

    4WLO = 4 Wheel low ( like the 4 wheel drive gear )
    Use to do a lot of off-road trail riding and muddin. Had a friend start calling me 4 wheel, and my last name happens to be Lowe. So it kinda all fit together.

    Mine is just my initials "db". My friends have called me db or deebee for many years, so I just go with it.

    .....formerly known as "dbjerknes" or "Bjerknes" the Norwegian (thanks to Shug). Cannibal helped me change it to my actual nickname/handle.

    My screen name is a carry-over from my other hobby and it's forums. I ride bikes, both road and mountain (more favored). My mountain bike is a soft-tail (Litespeed Unicoi), and I live in Georgia. So, I pulled from both to become STinGa.

    D***n !

    Big guy on high was watching ya that day. I can't even imagine once, let alone twice. Might not seem like it but it must of been your lucky day. You must of been terrified of being asked to walk point again. Glad you made it to walk better trails in happier times.

    Well, since Throkda sat and read the entire thread to me on the couch last night, I ought to pipe up. Nothing terribly special about mine. Its scottish gaelic for "Keeper of the clan". Pronounced Kat-tel-lyn. From a series I wrote back back in high school / college. Been using it online since 93 and its just stuck.
