Screen name origin ?

Recommended Posts

AZJW

In helping moderate this great forum,  I spend a fair amount of bad weather days cruising the forum and see some really interesting screen names. Some I can figure out,  some I can't and some I'm afraid to know,  lol. Anyway,  I'll start.

 

AZJW ( was CAJW).  Initials are JW, was a California resident, in the process of moving back to Arizona.  Real original, huh. Best I could come up with a 4 letter minimum. Let's hear yours.

Desert Mariner

Desert Mariner: I'm a California native and a mariner. I'm a diver, sailor and sea kayaker who took a teaching job at a small college in the middle of Arizona where, surprisingly, I found myself teaching on the ocean for most of my career through our field station in Mexico. I've spent that last 25 exploring the Gulf of California with my students, a sea surrounded by desert.

 

Riding motorcycles in the southwest reminds me of the open horizons that I love on the ocean. My loaded motorcycle becomes my "ship of the desert". Although I'm often generating my own wind on a motorcycle, the feel is similar to sailing and it seems that I can tolerate being away from the sea better when I'm riding motorcycles.

 

One of my most significant, recent motorcycle trips was to circumnavigate the Gulf of California on a motorcycle, including taking a ferry from Topolobampo in Sinaloa over to La Paz in Baja Sur. It was during that trip that I came up with the moniker, Desert Mariner.
