I am a 27 yr old male, I started editing on July 6, 2005 and have 6,428 edits as of January 24, 2008 (current count), which means I am just about getting the hang of things around here. I am currently working on making this the ugliest, most cluttered userpage ever.


It's one of those usernames you cant get rid of... I started using Ravedave when I was 15 (1995!! 28.8 modems were hot back then) and was first introduced to rave music. "Oh cool it rhymes" I thought. Little did I know about dropping E and glowsticks etc etc. I have never attended an actual rave, nor dropped E, nor have I wildly swung a glowstick about. Now I listen to rave music about once a year. But the name stuck, who cares about credibility anyways :P.

Minnesota State Parks[edit]

I have a goal of visiting every MN state park.
