Being in the Coast Guard, the Navy calls us puddle pirates because we usually don't go in water past our ankles. I'm an avid mountain biker and road cyclist so pedalpirate seemed to fit!

The "T" in topper232 is for Tony. The rest is part of my last name and the boat is a 232.

My first name is Nathan, then that got shortened to Nate. Then some of the guys started calling me Big Nate, guess because I'm 6'5" and 300 lbs now, then that got shortened to BigN8 some crazy ass way.....

My wife and I treat the family as a team and refer to ourselves as Team Bristow. We were both athletes as kids and she was a Div 1 All American sprinter in college. We tell the kids that everyone on Team Bristow has to do their part in everything we do.

Its either because my name is Julian, or its because I loved the name of Richard Gere's character in American Gigolo -Julian.....I'll let you decide!
