Well, it's my turn. Been so busy through the summer, I missed the start of this thread.
Mine is fairly straight forward: my first name, Gord, but not capitalized as I'm a two finger typist and takes too long to stab the shift....and the company I work for as a project manager/ estimator for the past 29 years is Border Paving Ltd. All my customers/ engineers/ consultants/ suppliers have called me gordfromborder for years.

As a side note, we also have a place in La Paz, Mexico, so we cross many borders back and forth. This way I can keep my handle when I retire in nine weeks and one day!

Fishing, camping and enjoying the great outdoors in the summer....here I come.

I was raised in S/E Idaho and we farmed potatoes among other things. The city kids referred to us as tater heads, of course only behind our backs because we usually had 30 lbs. on them....

Mine is extremely difficult to decipher: I'm Al and I'm from Reno, NV. Great topic.

Live in Alaska (AK) and love snomachining (snowmobiling everywhere else). Alaskans and from what I can tell alot of other riders refer to their snowmobiles as sleds. Which is where the sledhead comes from.

Ours is self explanatory... and not very creative either. Actually, we kind of like "formertaterhead". That's us too! And former cabbage head, too. Oh well, too late. We're stuck with just plain ole us.
