    Bored at work (You'll learn that many of my posts start this way) so I figured I would come over and check out utahby5. Already interested in some of the discussions going on. Any questions, just ask.

    Actually, I was born in SLC and moved back and forth between Henderson (Vegas) and Southern Utah.

    As far as my moniker, my last name is Caldwell and I have always liked the number 22. Sometime about my 7th grade year, when I first started to get on the internet, I quickly became sick of the fact the Caldwell22 or 22Caldwell was always taken. So one day, I simply put it in the middle and I have used it ever since.

    Rats. I was guessing a connection to Caldwell, Idaho. That has nothing to do with anything, so welcome!

    Simplest explanations are typically best. Again, welcome. Hope you find the site to your liking.

    I was born in Caldwell, Idaho. I was raised in Homedale, not too far away from Caldwell. That has nothing to do with anything, either.

    Yes. I went to a few games when I was a kid. Good times.

    I won the Idaho 3A 1600M run against a kid from Homedale in 1991, his initials were/are DD. He got second, I was first!

    I moved away in 1970. Probably don't know who that was.

    Look, Scottie's trying to brag here, and you're not helping.

    I have found that I am rarely helpful. I am impressed that he won the 1600m. I don't like to even drive that far.
