    Default Caching Names

    It would be presumptious of me to suggest that this hasn't been done before, but as I can see from the "Welcome" thread lots of new names are appearing. So:-
    How did you select your Geocaching "Handle" and does it have a special meaning. For instance
    Ours :- Palujia
    It was our Cat breeding prefix and made up from the letters of my name Paul, "she who must be obeyed" Judith and our first Siamese Julia
    There are some real goodies out there
    Care to share ??
    PS If you see us at any event you can tell us by the car number plate on Big Ange !!
    PPS That's why I'm also known as Mystic Mog

    cheers

    Mines a little sad compared to yours:

    Home location + Footie team

    Having said that it has been my regular forum name elsewhere prior to caching.

    We are Richard and Vicky, the DrDick bit came from when I worked in a wine bar and was a bit of a agony uncle and saved a few relationships.I was also First Aid trained for 35 years and on a few occasions when the alcohol got the better of some people I used the training to good purpose. So when we started caching I was going to be DrDick but erindoors wanted to join in and so we became DrDick&Vick.

    We started caching as Dave & Nicky but wanted a name which included the kids. "The Wombles" seemed appropriate for hiding in bushes and CITO.

    I was trying to think of a suitably witty username on another forum some time ago, so I wandered round the office looking for inspiration. Got to the kitchen area, and a certain breakfast cereal was staring at me...

    Bear and Ragged.

    Despite the 'and' in the name, it's only me.
    Live and work in the land of the Bear and Ragged staff.
    Work out where that is, and you're half-way to the cache!
    I have a Geocaching problem...
    Work gets in the way!

    I'm half of The Blorenges - there are two of us - MrB and MrsB

    Our name comes from the location of the first cache we ever found: It was "The First in Wales" which is on top of the Blorenge mountain near Abergavenny. After a long search we found it and when we went home our geocaching account was named simply Blorenge. It was soon amended to The Blorenges because there's more than one of us.

    Somebody did try to point out to me that there's a European manufacturer of domestic appliances called Gorenje, but I just put my fingers in my ears and went "Lalalalalalalala" so I couldn't hear him.

    Nice to know that there is another avid caravanner on here, we use the van all year and spend very little time at home. Don't like brick walls anymore.
    See my signature for the reason why.
