    I was just wondering,how did you come up with your user names?Were they nicknames given to you,or did you choose them because of certain skills or interests?Mine,for instance,is my real name .First and last ran together.Yes,my last name is Knuckles,so my nickname is built in.Anyone else have a nickname story?

    Hilljack is a name that my brother and I come up with for fishing. He is the Ohio Hilljack, he obviously is my brother, therefore I am Brother hilljack.

    By the way, a hilljack is the combination of a hill-billy and a jack-of-all-trades = hilljack

    I got mine when I ran away and joined the circus. My first job was trying out the new bars for the flying trapeze act. They came packed in grease so they wouldn't rust during shipping. Well someone didn't like me ( I think it was the bearded lady because I wouldn't kiss her) any way somebody would forget to clean them off and I would fall into the safety net. I never could catch them greasy bars so they just ended up calling me the net-man. The Jack comes from when I was younger and someone would have a flat tire. I would just reach down with one hand and pick their car up while they changed it. So I just put the two together, Netmanjack.:big_smile:
