hello all,
I have always been interested in area51 nevada - I have even made it to the gate but the guys sitting in a black explorer didn't have a sense of humour about the visit. As I was leaving I was buzzed by a jet seemed like 10 feet above my head but I am confident it was at least 12 or 14 feet above it. My email address is area51. I needed a cache name so I picked it. Also as a side note I live in insect control area 51. So my cache name was born - I became area51-wpg but in case your wondering my real name is Victor

There are some of us who just have too many login IDs at work to risk adding another one! Hence, swelbergen (first initial and last name), is my login ID for everything, including when I first looked into geocaching. A few weeks later, when I saw all the cool nicknames, I thought I should change it, then realized I couldn't. So sad Sad

You can always create a new user name and back date all of your cache finds.

I was playing the game "Populous" back in the early-90's, and decided I needed a "godly" name for ruling the people. I needed a handle that sounded cool (to teenaged me anyway). So I just thought one up. Psy... Fire. Sounds evil... like a telepath setting people on fire. I like it. But PsyFire had a boring spelling, so I melded it a bit. I like cats, and remembered the "siamese" breed. So spelled it SiaFire. Not good enough, gotta confuse the "Fire" spelling. Hey, how about an invisible 'e'. Fir. Nope, that's a tree. Add an h. Fhir. Now put them together. SiaFhir. K, that's a "godly" name, said me.

Never thought about it again until I got on the Internet bandwagon in 1997 and signed up for some chat rooms. RWOrange was my first name ("Rhymes With" Orange), but for some reason I decided I didn't want it anymore. I remembered the name SiaFhir from my Populous days and decided to use that. Since then it just stuck. Everything that needs a handle ends up getting SiaFhir.

Never pick your name when you are having a bad day. Smile

Is that kind of like going shopping on an empty stomach?

GG+J is just GG (Georgia's nickname) and J for John.
This is a name change of course from my original stage name.
I really just wanted to use my name but sharing it with a state and a country, meant that it wasn't easy to get a nickname with Georgia in it. Add in that the first 3 letters are shared with the first 3 letters of the sport and you can see that I had to ditch my name altogether.
When John started caching more and more with me, I thought it was only fair to add him into the mix. I wanted a short name for log-signing ease.
Voila !

Mine comes from one of the trucks I have...

Today was our first day that we can say we aren't muggles... We did our first find today!!

My daughter and I are pumped. Now we just have to wait for some more gps units to arrive and then it's game on!

While hunting for one of our first caches in the dark I stepped of the edge of a riverbank and slide about 25 ft down on my butt. As I reached the bottom I heard from the top "Hey, just like Indiana Jones!" and of course we had already called the dog "Indiana". Indy for short.

Years ago when I first started using computers at work I would jokingly use the handle fraid2say when logging a game score. (jokingly, because it wasn't a secret who was doing it, and a little relaxation time playing games wasn't even an issue with my employer)
The name has stuck with me ever since.

We started out at GPrattS as it was more a family event for us with Pratt being our last name...this spring though I started caching a lot with co-workers and friends so it seemed approp to set up my own user id to track those that I'd found and those my wife hadn't yet and so the I AM Stig was born. I'm a big Top Gear fan so the name choice was easy.
