My name is Josh. Joshism is a catch-all term referring to my slang and sayings as well as my political, philosophical, and religious beliefs.

I took my name from my favorite childhood cartoon. You really had to be a fan of the show to know this character since they never ended up as an action figure.

We are a retired married couple in our autumn years, and do our best to travel around the country as much as we can, health permitting, so what better fitting name but Grey Nomadz. :lol:

Well, I live in Lawford and I'm female... hubby lives in Lawford and is male therefore LawfordLass and LawfordLad!

 

This was after I got told off by a friend who is already a cacher (though I've only just discovered that) 'cos I signed up with my full name. Apparently it wasn't "cloak and dagger" enough :P

Everybody asks me this question.. I have been using this name for almost 20 years starting back in the good ol' days of AOL. It was the title and a name of a character in a poem out of a very old children's book... seemed very fitting of myself back then. Somewhere along the way the book had gotten misplaced and I could never find the poem anywhere again.

Mine is a play on the phrase, "Two's company, three's a crowd."

 

As a beginner, I normally geocache with one other person.

 

...And I find trees to be a nuisance sometimes - especially those that contain micro caches.

 

Hence, "Trees A Crowd." Not grammatically correct, but that is okay. :blink:

Mine's a character from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I used it when I played World of Warcraft but had to mispell it (it should be Agrajag) because it was already in use. It's stuck and I like it.

I saw a movie and the guy's name was Cleatus. I thought it was a funny sounding name. I was a flight engineer at a freight airline in the 80's. I'd call friends that when they messed up. Such as a harder than usual landing, "Dang , Cleatus, you knocked my back teeth out with that one". Many years later, about the time I got into geocaching, one of those guys got hold of me and called me Cleatus. I tried to use the name on GC.com but it said it was taken. I tried several other spellings until I found one that took.

I have been a ham radio operator since WWII and very active. More people know me as W7WT than my real name, So when i started Geocaching in August 2001, I just used it. Glad i did as it is very short and easy to put on those tiny nano logs.

No, I don't play Poker. It's my surname. My family has always talked about having poker luck (meaning bad luck), but I'm hoping to turn that around when it comes to finding caches. I'm not doing too bad so far. It also makes for a nice signature item.

Jane and George bought their first Chevy Astro van back in 1990 or so. They thought it would be fun to make a play on the Jetsons and picked up the Washington vanity plate WRASTRO. Then they got a stuffed Astro doll and put it in the van. Then geocaching came along and the name WRASTRO was clearly the right one. We still have the WRASTRO license plate as well as the GEOWAGN plate. For some reason we have a challenge travelling incognito at times. :D

One day I needed to get a return tag for an item and was using an online version of a form to do so. I had to register in order to do it, and my usual username was already taken, AND I was p'd off because the item was a gift I had gotten for my kids for Christmas (three tries, warranty ran out, and the DRUM KIT for our BAND HERO game STILL doesn't work :D ) so I became madmomma with my birth year attached.

 

I'm not really an angry person, but I do expect brand-new items right out of the box to work as promised. I'm still not happy about that whole thing.

 

madmomma72 has since become my alternate screen name when the usual version is already taken. I like it because it affords a convenient alternative for signing micro and nano logs....

My last name is Hardison and I have been called Hardy by some of my friends. I couldn't use my other nickname which involves removing the "is" from Hardison.

Mine is from the days when I started riding a motorcycle to work in order to dodge the traffic jams. I joined a number of bike related forums back then and the fact that the Jammie Dodger is my favourite biscuit was a bonus.

When I was signing up to this website I must have tried

10 to 15 different names and everyone was taken.. I have

a bobble-head of Island medicine man which is titled OOOGA - BOOGA

I was shaking it trying to think up a new name and thought what the heck...

End of story...

Lizzy is my nickname and hooping is my other passion. Yes hooping as in hula hooping. Don't laugh, I make and sell hoops and instruct classes full of adults. Might sound strange but it is really fun, and earns me extra cash.

 

Check out www.hooping.org for more info on hooping.

When I first joined I used my email moniker which I have used since 1999. As the family started to get involved, I knew we needed to come up with a good name to use for all of us as a group. I happened to remember this rubber stamp which has been sitting in my closet for almost 20 years and the Cool Cow Cachers were born!

Since someone already asked...it's pretty random! I have a cat, and he's sweet as pie. That's him in my avatar pic.

I'm a volunteer fire chief and my radio number is 301 (kinda copied off some acquaintances of mine in a neighboring department who got me started Geocaching...they use their radio callsigns as well)

I used this handle on another site (instructables.com) before I got into geocaching, so I just carried it over here. Sometimes it leads people to believe I am an iPod expert and ask for advice but really I was just listening to my iPod while signing up and publishing my first invention.

When I joined, I didnt realize that i would be chosing a name to write down on caches.. (they should tell you to choose your name wisely) I just chose username that i had recently started using on other sites.

 

Breaking down FFEMT1721:

FF: firefighter (i am a volunteer firefighter)

EMT: emergency medical technician (i work as an emt)

1721: my unit number on the fire dept.

 

One of these days when I think of a name that suites me better, I will change it, but for now I am sticking with it!! (-:

Newbie here, but already hooked, without even being able to say I've found one yet. :unsure: Chose my name because I'm an original Sunshine girl, got the nickname way back and it stuck. I now have Sunshine's of every size, shape, color imaginable all over my house, car, body etc. And added my birthday. Happy Caching all.

I'm also new here, I signed up under Kelly (me) & Scott (my boyfriend) because I assumed that he would be accompanying me on my geocaching trips, but it seems that now I am the enthusiastic one and he is the one who "humors" my obsession. Oh well! He humors me well, and always stops the car when I tell him I need to get out to hunt a cache. Story of my life! <_<

My father was a BAR man in the 28th Infantry Division during WWII. The unit insignia was a red keystone, since they were a Pennsylvania National Guard outfit. The Germans started calling them the "bloody bucket" division since they took, and inflicted, many losses.

 

It's a tribute to him.

Yeah, I'm new here too, and also haven't found anything...lol.

 

My name is from an old pen and paper RPG, "Legend of the Five Rings". I've used it for years, and it's rarely taken anywhere.

Mine is a nickname I've used in emails, online gaming and other general Tom foolery since 95. Its my initials plus ed. Which came out as AMPed. Just getting into geocaching (I tried one other time in 2003, can't believe my account wasn't deleted in 7 years) with my son, its great time spent together.

I live near a local public reserve. When I was first exploring geocaching I looked for a cache near my home. There was one in the reserve and when I looked at a spoiler photo I recognised the tree. (It was a distinctive tree on a track intersection). So I nabbed my first geocache before my GPSr arrived in the mail!

 

The name of the reserve is Huntleigh Park.
