I'm talking about trailnames. They are pretty much like nicknames, but used on the trail, hence trailnames.
Some people have trail names based on where they live, like Florida Jimmy and Upstate. Some people come in with trailnames from their everyday life, like Chiclet. (Her dad's pet name for her) Some people get their names from things they say or go on the trail, like Big Spoon. Or from their overall disposition, like Sweet K. Some people even just make things up because they think it sounds funny: K-Busy.
Then there's me. Who gets a trail name because of my shopping habits. Like shopping at the LLBean clearance rack for this rain jacket
So everyone, I am now Pink Lady!
