Our member name UPINYACHIT  wasn't designed to bring negative attention to our family or to this sight.  Come to find out, some people took offense to it and thought it was inappropriate at a family event.  We couldn't be more of a family than we already are!

We feel as being proud parents of four teenage kids that our member name isn't that bad. It's suppose to be funny!  We like the fact that we have the kids out caching, rather than them being out with the wrong crowd and nothing better to do.  As we've always said, it gets our family closer and we have a great new hobby for the whole family.   A member name should have nothing to do about us as a family.  We all like our user name; we ARE up in your caches, aren't we? LOL :p  

We welcome your comments!

The Hughes Family

At the picnic I have never met a nicer group of people, this includes you and your family. You picked the user name as other did theirs. There is no harm in what you use and has no reflection on you as a person or a family.
You have done a good job and are a great group...keep on caching ! ;)

Guess I must have missed something while at the get-together. I never heard anything negative said about anybody or anything. A great group of folks enjoying each others company.

I don't get it, but then I haven't been around teens lately.  Is it abbreviated slang or Ebonics for "up in your sierra-hotel-india-tango"?

If the above is the case, I can possibly guess someone's concern.  On a life scale of -5 (bad) to 0 (neutral) to +5 (good), some will strive for the positive, others will accept "not that bad".  Whatever (as I last remember teens saying).  One cow's chit is another's organic fuel here in India.  And based on the picnic reports, you're a goodbunchachits ;0o

It is a native american word, pronounced Up-En-Yawk-Et. Loosly translated it means 'fearless tribe'.

All right I had an instant brain surge when I read the name......or so I thought..........

My way of thinking....substitute the ch with an sh.........

You know the stuff Foo the wonder dog leaves around the yard and fearless steps in.....one of the many reasons he calls her "That Dog!"

But whoa....didn't know the Native Translation........

I worked on the Rosebud Souix Reservation right after college.....

My maiden name didn't sound Lakota (dialect spoken there) like so I hyphenated it .............  My last name then was Burdick...........  I came out with 2 D's in the middle......(literal translation a bird's part)

The kids all laughed......I said it at a middle school........my face is turning red even now!!
