    Brother Jeffrey. No i am not a priest, but according to bigfoot2 I am "one righteous dude" I was introduced to BF2 on the trail by my brother rip waverly as brother jeffrey and a trail name was born amongst the obsidian. That was my first hang with "random Internet people" as my lady friend puts it. Glad I got introduced to the forums. The obsidian trail is where my avatar was taken.

    Pretty simple for me. The AT is about 10 miles from me in MD and I'be been blundering around on it for what seems like forever (early 70's). Just recently made the transition to hammock camping and am planning to have my first hang before the end of April.

    So yeah,
    I'm a professional tuba player and I like it a whole lot. Believe it or not there is a forum just like this, but just for tuba and euphonium players. I'm pretty active over there.

    is case you are curious:

    I also have a pretty big tattoo of a tuba on my left arm and you have to be a total dork to do that.

    Who is QiWiz? Inquiring minds want to know, apparently . . .

    I get asked this a lot, so as a newbie to the forum, here's the explanation.

    I got the name when I learned to do acupuncture, which was about eight years ago now. See in Chinese medicine, the life force energy running through channels in the body is called Qi (pronounced chee). So I am a Qi Wiz, or QiWiz for short. It is also a play on words, as many fellow hikers have figured out. (Gee whiz!, OR did you say Cheese Wiz?) So maybe I am just a clever guy . . .

    Anyway, I am a persistent gear tweaker, having modified or enhanced just about everything I use for backpacking. Most projects are just for my personal enjoyment, but it did not end there. I'm now a "hobbyist" gear maker with my own website. Who knew?

    I do backpack year round, mostly in the Western Pennsylvania woodlands, though I try to get out in the Western US once or twice a year as well. I am a life member of both the Appalachian Trail Conservancy and of www.backpackinglight.com and also support www.whiteblaze.net

    My 2011 AT adventures can be fully examined at www.trailjournals.com/QiWiz if you are so inclined.
    There is also an interview of yours truly at http://hikeitlikeit.com/2012/qiwiz-ul-gear-robert-kelly which is a first for me.

    After being chased out of a campsite by a bear one night and watching the better part of our gear become a snack and or play toy it was an easy ongoing joke to sleep with one eye open, hence "eyes wide shut." There's really nothing worse than being awoken to five friends screaming bloody murder at the sight of a hungry and curious several hundred pound bear wandering through camp!

    So, being as imaginitive as a post, yet getting the concept of "screen name", I struggled a lot. After all, I'm perfectly fine with using my given name. But that's no fun, I know.

    Anyway, ol' daddy speaks of what I'm probably best known for: the guy with a large family (and who started all over again at age 50) who drives a funky looking 15-passenger van to move everyone around in.

    I have 5 kids, three of whom are triplets. I've been TripletPaw on some boards, but TripPaw is what I've used more recently. It's shorter and has more of a trail feel, which I like.

    First post BTW. Happy to be here. Gleaned a LOT of info already!

    Thanks!

    I am a Bamaboy through and through. ROLL TIDE! I will probably end a lot of posts with that. Even did when Shula was coach. Lol. I have used BB2132 since high school. 21 was my dads sports number and 32 was mine. If you google bb2132 a lot of my posts over the years will pop up.
