Post And Now Introducing....
I play drums in Avenpitch, thereby knowing several of you already - for those of you who don't know me , here I am. Presto is my hiking name but I figured it would work well for this stuff too. So there it is - a name and a connection to this here gothling.com message board - yee haw.

I don't have much to say unprovoked but will hide nothing if you ask. So come forward with your questions.

hiking name?

We have screen names on the 'Net, but you're saying that people out in the real world make up names for themselves, too?

Welcome, by the way.

Ah - yes

I should have figured that would need an explaination. Hiking names are used for much of the same reason that you have screen names on the net. Two main reasons are to remain somewhat anonymous and being able to "detach" from your everyday life.

Heres a site where you can see all kinds of "hiking" names http://www.trailjournals.com/

So, if you use them on a website, they are just screen names(?).

Yeah- but with hikers, its different cause in "real" life around hikers you still use your trailname. I was known as Presto by many people who had never been on a message board in their life. I have hiking friends with names like "Mindless Mariachi" and "Mr. Wizard" and even though I know their real names now, I still refer to them by their trail names 'cause thats the name I promarily associate with them.

Possibly simpler explaination: I would introduce myself as Presto if I met another hiker on a trail. If I met you at a show, I would leave the screen name behind and introduce myself as Paul. Get it?

Welcome aboard, nice to see you casting a little light upon our dark shores.

You should go to the anything goes section and join in the "answer a question ask a question" topic, it's my favorite here.
