Who’s Spaldäm?


I originally created the name Spaldam in a High School English class in 1993 when the topic of the day was “coining words”. I have since been using it as a nickname and on-line alias.


Spaldam.com is my personal web-site where I share my adventures in life. These include: going off-road,  writing for Trailsoffroad.com ; Playing Games with my three kids; and the occasional boring technical information or video. If you’re interested in political or religious content, I have a separate blog for that too.
