Thread Starter 
Lot of new members so I just gotta ask again. Some are pretty straight forward and some are a bit abstract.

Yuki...just means snow in Japanese and I picked it up from karate.

My parents were musicians, so I tried to get a name associated with music. Tried violin - taken. Beethoven - taken. Eventually, after many false starts, it turned out that oboe was NOT taken. So . . .

My nickname came about after I married my husband and ski partner, skidog. We also have our nicknames on our license plates. My signature is a comment my best ski buddy friend, Air Cher, and I used to say as we skied the Double Black Diamond runs together. We still ski them but she is in CO and I am in AK.

^^Diamonds are a girls best friend.^^

I have no clue what my nick means. Shea is my first name and one day my friend started calling me Shea-bird and I was like whatever and it just stuck.

My friends claim i'm lucky in golf and other things so the name stuck.

My name is derived from an extinct metal magazine that I used to read. It was the best one I'd ever read, and I've still not found a better one. And liking the name so much, i use it as my online alias for: ICQ, MMBB, EpicSki, Ebay, TGoH, BD, and anything else that i have to use a name and password for. = )

Dirtybkr comes from another forum . My wife and I are Harley enthusiasts and we used to tease each other about old stereotypes . I also race dirt bikes and that other forum is a dirt bike forum . I just use the same name and pass words so I don't forget , not as young as I used to be .

"Jaws" was coined by a few friends, old and new, from my last name, which is Jaworski.
post #16 of 398
That nick name has been in our family not only for years, but for generations.

My real last name is "Winkelman. " Pretty obvious, so.......

Happy New Year again to one and all.

I live in Wyoming, but fish saltwater with some friends from San Diego. They used Trouthead as a put down as in "you troutheads don't know nothing about fishing for real fish". Little did they know that myself and the other Wyoming contingent liked the name. I liked it well enough to be my online name on any board I post to. I really do not even like to fish for trout any more.

nopainnojane, marketing slogan from my favorite local ski area Winter Park, Best bumps in the front range.
post #23 of 398

I am sorry but catching one more 16 inch cut or rainbow has lost its appeal. So instead of fishing the Wyoming waters 40-50 days per season, I fish maybe 3-4. I do however fish salt water both conventional and fly about 10-15 days per year. I have enjoyed my past freshwater trout fishing, but nothing beats a 50 lb tuna except a bigger one. Now if I can manage to catcha tuna on fly gear I'll be very happy.

That all being said, a fishing buddy and I are planning an Alaska (trout/salmon) trip for early June. Do you now take back the "Meathead" remark? <FONT size="1">

I've taken the moniker of my favorite band, who by the way just put on the show of the billenium for New Year's Eve!!! Now I'm ready to ski again.

Well I wonder where that skier's bound. Is there some run, somewhere, someway out there that I've not found?

i like to hike the ridge at bridger bowl

Free your heels, poke your eyes out!
post #26 of 398
I like to go big....normally resulting in horrendous crashes onto my head...but at least I try. Basically, same idea as my signature "go big or go home."

So if you ever see a guy on a board or skis "flying high" and then crashing back to earth.....it may be me. Or it may be one of the other thousands of people intent on forever injuring themselves.

Go big or go home

Mescalero because I'm actually a hallucination that may or may not be real, and because from Mescalero I can see Sierra Blanca up Ruidoso-way.<FONT size="1">

The nickname goes back to when I was a bit over the line on the wild side , I guess I reminded somebody of a character named Leeroy in a movie , they even painted Leeroy on the tailgate of my truck.(Leeroy got blamed for alot of sh*t after that)
