Fern kept me in hysterics the day I climbed Ontario Peak with him and Steve last winter and climbed many a tree, in his crampons, but by far my favorite FERN (Fern Exhibiting Radical Nonsense) was the Helmet Glissade...

Poor Fern never even logs on so he can defend himself.

You can say what ever you want to him, he'll see it.

Just don"t talk bad about him, cause he's real sensitive.

Funny how this came up under this thread.

Sensitive? Oh, so you mean he's emotional. Oh, well in that case, FERN = Flamboyant Emotional Reaction (to) Nature. :wink:

I mean, c'mon, a helmet glissade? How much more flamboyant do you want? :lol:

I've always thought "Fern" was a strange nickname for Fernando. I found some other options:

Ferno, (like inferno!), F Man, MegaFern, Flying F, Presidente eFe, , Nando, or simply Do (long o sound). Of course, saving the best for last, how about FERI? (At least that would explain the long-standing high heels controversy). What say you, Fernando? I know you don't usually post, but you can send word through Steve if you like any of those.
