    Some of our "screen names" are self-explanatory.
    TurboVan, ApplevalleyTim, Macsdoghouse...
    But some...

    Mine is a combination of VAN(obviously)
    with my last name,Incitti-(in-city)
    to make it the perfect choice for where I live.
    Where vanity thrives...

    How/where/whats up with your name??

    First day of 9th grade sitting in the back of class goofing off and writing names backwards, the teacher called on me and asked my name. I said "Trebor", and from then on it just kinda stuck through High School.

    My screen name came from the question posed by almost every person that saw my Van.
    "Where are the Dice" My reply; "NO Dice"

    I used to work on the black top crew..every neighbourhood had a stray dog that would come around for a sniff and bite...we referred to these dogs as Barky. since then I found out that in the days of Men of War sailing ships, the sailors would use the endearment Barky for a favorite ship.....but mostly it refers to the Bark I hear from the 350 blasting throught the tunnels in the Fraser canyon..

    I bought a 69 dodge van out of our impound yard that had set in the king county major crimes yard for several years. It was had a Travco family wagon conversion package with a fiberglass roof....it was pretty ugly. The painter at work said "look, it came with a bayliner boat on the roof"..refering to the ugly fiberglass top. "I said no way dude, it's a dodgeliner" The rest is history.

    The dodgeliner was sold to a guy in Portland OR but the spirit remains. It was just another van saved from the crusher.
