Some people do, some people don't.
The ones who do seem to fall into various categories:
The vehicle;
A particular activity, e.g. cycling, hiking;
A particular hobby, e.g. tractors, motorbikes;
Pets, primarily dogs;
Locations, U.K. and overseas;
Weird and wonderful and just plain wacky.
Did you choose something that you particularly like and want others to see?
Did you choose to convey a message?
Did you choose to ensure that your avatar was immediately recognisable?
I'm interested to know what motivated your avatar decision.
You know who you are.

Looking to buy
Because for a year we didn't have a Cali but we did have a Pepper Pig trike , and oh yes Susi Sue is my wife, and a very good one, and an avid Cali wild camper.

I see a lot of me in the character

He was Scottish as am I (I know James Doohan was Canadian)
Can be left in charge for a while, but doesn't desire command rather be in the engine room
Can see beauty in engineering

Is it an office? Is it a lounge? Is it a camper?

Because the naïve silhouet is still inspired by this first basic Ben Pon sketch from 1947, and because there's more to this than meets the eye.

Since we had a mascot on our T4, I decided to move this over. It’s part of ensuring the Cali is seen as a fun camper and not a plumbers van!
Seem appropriate to have this uniqueness as an avatar.

Because this character is what we named our van. Can you guess who it is?

Cover of Gentle Giant’s eponymous album. Always a fan especially when my uncle (going back to the 70s) was given the vinyl by the group who he’d been giving some saxophone lessons to, back in Pompey.

OK I'll tell you (I don't think this warrants suspense). It's Hector, from the film "Coco" about the Mexican celebration of Day of the Dead. Kids love the film, we thought the name suited our van.

Because it’s one of the good places our van has taken us !
