I'm furry, my profile pic is my fursona and my name is my fursona's name. Simple as that. I use it all over the place. He's an Eastern Quoll if anyone is wondering.

 

Say, does anyone know any other furry geocachers?

Chirp!

My username is my name and species, "BinkyDutchAngelDragon" was one character too long!

I have played D&D ever since I was a little kid ( Yep back in the 70's). I also leave different types of dice as swag in the cache as my calling card. I thought that would be kind of neat.

My name is Tyler and 883 is a low tech emoji for my four-eyed mustached face.

Tinkerbell is my favorite Disney character, despite it being an odd choice for an adult male. (the wife doesn't judge me!)

No comment about who's in the bi... back seat. :D

 

Beautiful ride though... looks like it cost more than my car. ;)

I'm a huge SpongeBob fan.  My avatar is Spongbob and Patrick hiding out in a clubhouse and I thought that looked rather like hiding a geocache.

Here's how I got my Geocaching name:

E.T. are my initials.  In the military phonetic alphabet, that becomes Echo Tango.  After 24 years in the military, it sorta gets into the personal lexicon.

This is my Internetname. Years ago it started with Deviantart and after short time there were more and more forums, websites and so on. So now Geocaching.com is the next Site I'm using this name

My Geocaching name is based on a furry character I costume as. His name is Shades-of-Grey, but I call him just Grey for short. Grey is supposed to be a coyote/fox mix, with traits of angels and demons, which is why he has spikes and feathers on his head and neck. He is supposed to represent balance between good and evil. If anyone wants to see pictures of me wearing him, here is a link: https://imgur.com/a/5dBtE

He is also in my user avatar and on my profile header.

The first four letters of my last name and how many people in my family who like to find geocaches. Sorry not creative but I didn't see a lot of creative names when I started playing in 2007.

I played an online game called RED FACTION, and used the name "IStink" because I was bad at first.  But over time I got really good and became a leader of our clan "Lost Souls" .  Some of us broke away to play competitively the game COUNTER STRIKE SOURCE,  and a new clan called BIA....brothers in arms, thus my handle there was IStink//bia,   So I use IStinkbia.

I don't remember exactly why I chose my username. I think that "123geocache" wasn't available, so I picked "321geocache." Today, I would probably choose another username, but this is good enough.

They deleted my first profile picture. I guess they considered it vulgar. The ironic thing is the funniest part. #KY

When I was born, my parents lived in a mining camp called Elsa.  I was the only baby in town; hence, I was the Elsa baby.  I use variations of that on the web, depending on what's available at the time.  Yes, the road sign also points to Elsa.

My name is the italian word for "blind man's buff" game

I was searching for a name about searching something hidden, and I like how the words sounds.

... it also represents very well my searching ability :-)

My husband and I came up with this name because we were sheep farmers at the time and geocache together.

I used the name I use for Bookcrossing. I tried several other names but they were all taken. Eventually I tried Goldenwattle and was surprised to find it available. It's the Australian national flower.

I worked at a company where your company-wide ID was your first initial last name - up to eight characters. However, if you were a contractor they ended your name with an X. Seemed like an easy way to have a unique user ID.

Our name comes from our initials - I'm JM and she's CB. The 15 refers to 2015, the year we got back together. We were high school sweethearts who went our separate ways, both got married, kids and divorced and after 28 years we got back together and it seemed perfect, like we hadn't spent a day apart. She's amazing - the one who got away came back, and I thank god for that every single day. Geocaching was our first new hobby together, and we geocache together as a team always.

It is a shortened form of a previous username that I used on different platforms, use to be IcyPersonY (icyperson was a nickname from middle school) and the "Y" is the first initial of my middle name.

My initials  -  which also sounds like 'serious' and the name of the game.  I did this before the current meaning of "Can't Remember S. . T" came into common usage - but that works too!!

Anyways, I began geocaching under an alias which was likely "penini74", which was created under a sporadic and strange conversation with a friend years ago. I changed it to something which truly fit me, and was less vulgar in it's origins. This alias is my newer one which I use on a small fraction of the sites I use. It's derived from the final song from Phantom Planet's debut album "Phantom Planet is Missing", called 'Sleep Machine'.  I love the record, and find this song to be very interesting. It also speaks to my strange experiences with dreams....which has caused me to be scared of dreaming as time has gone on. The song is below;

https://youtu.be/Hew9vTBCOCU

I decided to stick with the song title, but change "sleep" to Dream to reflect this, which just happens to be a slight nod to my favourite song, called "Only in Dreams". The end of my name is for the two numbers I have a fair predilection to, 7 and 4.

I love rainy weather and sirimiri is nothing more but a term for light rain or fine dizzle. It also resembles my other pseudonym. I doubled the i's because the 'Sirimiri' itself was taken :c
