    Hi everyone
    This is a game to find out where your name leads you in the world.

    Take the first 6 letters of your nickname or any word(s) that appeal to you.
    Now convert the letters to numbers using your phones keypad.
    D,E,F=3 and so on
    Got it? Ok now go to this cool Mapquest site:

    for example: my nicks first six letters gentle=436853

    I am at Baksapenok near the Ukraine.

    Type those six numbers in the lat and long boxes. Same numbers for both lat and then long.
    Now see where that takes you!!

    I am right in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean...:blink:

    Using my real name however I am again somewhere in some sea or ocean, I see nothing but water...

    But I think I did it wrong anyway.:mellow:
