My username actually has to do with my name. It’s not some troll name. I’m not luring anyone into any traps. But I’m still a fan anonymity.

TallGrass once told me I had one of the trolliest names on here - that was when I actually met the guy. I can see it, I don’t disagree, but its just a coincidence.
I miss TG. The antics he and others got into provided plenty of entertainment. Plus I grew up going to the Tall Grass Music Festival.

This one I had wondered about, didn't know the lingo. But some of us know you as "Your humble correspondent."

Last time I explained my username, some douche canoe made a youtube video out of it. For real.

You wouldn't believe how many people don't know that West Virginia is it's own state
Wait? West Virginia is a state? I thought it was the landfill of the east coast.

I think that’s New Jersey.

Where I'm from, we just refer to it and everything west to the Mississippi as Botetourt County.

I use to run around barefoot from as far back as I can remember. I ran track barefoot until the rule came about that you had to wear shoes. In the 3rd grade, my brother and I ran against 5th graders during the summer track season. The only time I put shoes was if we went somewhere. My feet were so tough that when I cut my big toe open in the crease where the toe meets the foot, the doctor bent the needle trying to get it through the skin. I never found what cut the skin. I remember him shaking his head then pulling the needle out bent. About 15 years ago I stepped on a wire or something sticking out of the ground, and ended up with blood poisoning. I keep my shoes on now. Anyway. One day out running around on the rocks barefoot, someone told me " your feet rock". My feet rock? That's cool. The name stuck.

On a normal day I've got my head in the clouds, but the closer I am to the edge, the sharper my focus.
I am a dark poet on the run,
a mountain man who worships the sun.
