On a metal detecting forum I use someone started a thread asking why people chose their usernames and what they meant. On there I'm Timesearch, because my job involved historical research, on here I'm Bushtrekker because I also used to run survival courses. Some names, are obviously combinations of names, or related to vehicles, others aren't so obvious, such as why is Jen Kimbowbill? On the other forum the thread ran for ages, but the one which brought it to a halt while everybody stopped laughing was Morning Wood:raofl:

there is a thread running on here too, somewhere, but to save you the hassle of looking, my name derives from, as you said, a combo of names, kimba, my horse, boat and my parrot, billie, that was years ago and its stuck, problem is, if i dont put my name, peeps think i'm a bloke, lol

I intended to go on the site as Bushtuckerman after the Australian survival series. It was only after I started getting strange emails that I looked again and realised the 'T' had come out as 'S'

A couple of seals gave me a fishing lesson tonight...to add insult to injury one devoured a sea trout I guess right before my eyes..

That's how you do it, not stood there with a rod...at which point effortlessly dived and swam off..

Anyone for angling lessons with Inverness seals?
