    Bighiker 2003 was meant to be Hiker. As hiking was
    my recreation of choice.
    but Hiker was in use, So I added Big, That was also in use
    so I added the year that i started it, 2003.
    It was started as my Yahoo mail
    But please don't post me as I no longer
    use Yahoo.

    Hey Hiker, I love hiking too, and bird watching ( the ones that fly ).

    My avatar came from the work that I do and the year of my birth ( lame, but Ive been using it a lot so it sticks)

    Honestly, I just made this name up when I registered so that I'd be totally anonymous. I have another screen name that I always use but... somehow I'm just paranoid. Haha.

    The trail i do most is the North Country trail. It starts where the AT ends in Maine.

    Kronnie a lot of people Hike to see nature and get exercise.
    You must carry everything you need , Tent,bedroll ,food,stove(a tin can in my case)
    and fuel but not much.

    I had another name on here previously, but I had to change it when my ex-husband started spying on me and reading all my posts on the forums he knows I visit. So I came up with this name. Muna is my Arabic name (I've studied it and I love the name - it means desire) and Jadida is Arabic for new (feminine). So roughly translated, it means New Mandy - a new name for a new me as I start my new life with a guy who treats me right!

    I'm a person who likes to eat junk food. My weakness is chocolate and homemade desserts. I also like icecream, chips, Newman-0's cookies, fig newtons, granola bars and frozen pizzas.

    I did a 50 mile hike over a 5 day period in the Grand Teton's as part of Boy scouts. That was awesome.


    Picked my name because I like bodybuilding, the 5150 is a Van Halen reference since I play guitar as well

    I think She meant (Bodybuilder).
    I do the gym every night that I don't work in the
    cold months, Or 3/4 of the year.
    But i don't body build, Just keep in shape.
