There's a lot of thought and inspiration behind my username.

I bet there was when considering who gave that name🙂

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.
I like barefoot hiking too! There are dozens of us!! Have you done any 14ers barefoot?
No barefoot 14ers.

On the page where one registers I read this statement: "Consider using your real name as your username since it will mean more credibility when posting in the forum." So I did.

Remember the real Dr. J?

Julius Erving. My first name starts with J, but I don’t play basketball.

Probably my favorite NBA player ever. With Moses Malone and Hakeem Olajuwon close behind.

Hulk- favorite superhero, my call sign, I carry a Hulk doll that was given to me by my kids to every summit, and I am a decently sized fellow who enjoys lifting heavy objects.
Hike- I love to hike whenever I get the possibility.
Good- I feel like I move pretty good for 260lbs.

Put it all together and there ya go. But I like to imagine it said as if someone were to ask the Hulk if he enjoys the outdoors.... and naturally his reply would be "Hulk Hike Good"( in Hulk voice)
