You do have to differentiate us 'westerners' in the mountains from the 'flatlanders' of the east.

My life has been full of people with the name Pete. My dad, my best friend growing up his cousin and his dad. Now my Father in law and well naturally my son So in order to differentiate which Pete is which I started spelling it Peat or Peaty way back grammar school. It kind of stuck.

In the past I have had a dark brown touring wagon, and a silver wagon, at different times.

My current Subie that I drive is a 1990 Maple Beige L-Series sportswagon, hence the name Beigewagon.

Beigewagon.

Way too long a story, had this nikname for over 20 years... Use it for journalsim, forum acitivities and clubs. Was also my dj name for 13 years (Shortened to 'Paf).

Passion Pop was involved, saving this for the ORS campfire!
