I looked at my drivers lic. and came up with mine. lol
My wife and i were scouting for elk when she took this pic.
Here are a few we found.
Xtreme was the name of our product before Homeland Security forced us out of business. The name may have come because of a lifestyle of playing hard. Still driving a red GTO/6sp. (Needs a 95 hp cam increase) My aerobatic airplane was a Bilanca Decathlon, self taught aerobatic pilot. Raced the 1990 Baja 1000 class 40. Ama National Harescrambles class champion. The dural sport 540 KTM I ride once beat Rickey Carmical to the first turn in outdoor motocross with Guy Cooper riding. My current offroad bike is a KTM 250, my pitbike is an Xtreme CR5 prototype that is currently sold worldwide outside the US. Streetbike is a Yamaha VMax. I am a Vietmam Vet and a 101st Airborne paratrooper. Now everything is use to. I use to solo hunt above timberline. Survived several major storms, last one was in the Lizard Head, I think 1980. 1974, Pole Mountain unit 76 was my first above timberline storm, no tent, just shelter half.
Yesterday my 14yo grandson, Montana, beat me for the first time riding dirtbikes crosscountry.
Well, my handle has been with me a long, long time and came from being the only twelve year old in second grade who could grow a beard!

I've had the handle Vanish for over 10 years. I originally chose it for playing the early DEER HUNTER video games online.
It tends to be pretty accurate when it comes to forums, as I'll be obsessively involved in different forums at different points throughout the year and then I vanish for awhile as my interests change for the time being. Usually between fishing, hunting, radio control and video games.
DIY til I DIE
Its kinda a way of life one season into the next i dont really have an off season from hunting except for the summer. It can can also be used for motivation to keep at it no matter how the cards may be stacked against me.
I make a living guiding in the mountains. multi-day backcountry packtrips/fishing trips in the summer, elk and deer hunters come fall, then Snowmobile trips through winter. my handle represents how i make my living.
The story is I was a real cranky baby, probably colic or something. My parents tried everything to no avail. My Great Grandpa, who was born in the 1880's came to visit and suggested a little whiskey, honey and tea. Worked like a charm. He called me a little Toper, an old term for a drinker. It stuck and was eventually shortened to Tope. Grandpa also gave me my first .22 when I was 5, a Winchester model 90 22WRF. Still have it. He passed when I ws 20, sure miss those stories about Montana in the old days.
Mine came from my trout fishing days. Blue Dun dry fly.
