The guys at work started calling me "Scuba-Steve" after the "Big Daddy" movie came out as my name is Steve.
It slowly changed to "Scubersteve" and I just rolled with it. I figured it was not as bad as what they could've come up with.
I don't actually scuba though. Went once on a cruise and threw-up 30ft underwater. :eee:
true story :lol:

Goldrush was my CB handle when I was 16.

Mostly due to interest in Panning for gold, and last name is Rush.

I've been a CIO at large law firms for countless years. A very good, west coast, friend used to refer to me as the "CIO dude"

Ahh but that just means after spending a little time here you will have to change your user name!

MOFAST- I am from Missouri and hope the boys are fast at Districts in 9 days. :pray: We need to be MOFAST! Last year we had over 500 boys at district so we will need to be really fast.

I couldn't think of a cool user name and since I am MOFISH on a couple other forums, I went with that. I am a dedicated Bass fisherman, I even donated some of my sinkers to my two daughter's sibling car.

I am a father of 6 yr. old triplets and a 8 yr old. Two boys and two girls, I am also a Tiger Den leader and assistant Cubmaster. The boys both made it to districts.

I have been riding motorcycles for about 43 years and Harley s for 41 years none stop. Some years back I built a Harley 1946u flat head 74 out of pieces. It was in 14 shows won 22 awards in 3 magazines and one newspaper as well as my daily rider. Took 2nds and 3rds in Daytona bike week against 50 or more in my class and I rode it to Daytona and back home. Rode it on road trips as long as 2,000 miles. It was a rider not just a show bike. I use 46u on the MANY forums I go to.

I have used my name for 20+ years. As a kid I had a Commodore 64 and my character name was StormDragon. When I transitioned to IBM PC Clone in the late 80s we were now limited to 8 characters due to MSDOS naming limitations. So i shortened my name to SirStorm. I found it easy to continue using that name after Al Gore invented the internet, and so here we are!

CYRB is the cry of the Peanuts' character Snoopy, in his imaginary guise of a WWI Flying Ace, after being shot down by his arch-nemisis the Red Baron. :awww: The first PWD car I worked on with my Dad, way back in 1974, was a car driven by Snoopy in his Flying Ace getup. We accidentally "invented" (I'm sure we weren't the first) the three wheel PWD car. It was a family secret, revealed only on a 'need to know' basis. Many years later, my wife was shocked when I wouldn't tell her (luckily she is very good natured... otherwise my answer would have had to be different!) Of course, now I'm in a pack that mandates 4 on the floor :thumbdown: This is my last year with my youngest son, so this chapter is coming to a kind of close. This is very sad, since I absolutely love PWD - especially the creativity lavished on these little pine blocks. I don't have to be the fastest, I just think it's a great institution... 60 years this May! :bigups:

So Having Wandered, that's a cool quote, where is it from? My Google search turned up nothing.
