This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Community.

In this Badge Bit, you will brand a piece of equipment. You will name (or share the name of) the equipment, put the name on its key chain (if it has keys), and do something to add flair to the equipment. Maybe you'll paint it, or give it a custom rack or decal or license-plate border or a hood topper. It should make the equipment more fun to use!

Examples from Wheaton Labs:
  ranger doug (Wheaton Labs' little pickup truck). The keychain should be a bit more creative than this!
   
   
  rex (the excavator)
     

  kerry (the wheelbarrow)

  toots (the van)

Here is a list of truck names for ideas.

     



To complete this BB and earn 1 point, the minimum requirements are:
- a public thread or post at permies with pics, a description of the equipment, and a story
         - name the piece of equipment
         - specialized keys with the equipment's name(if it has keys) OR the equipment bears the name (if it doesn’t have keys)
         - add some sort of interesting flair/character to the equipment
 

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide:
 - a link to your post on permies
 - a photo of the piece of equipment or vehicle
 - a photo of the keys or the branded equipment
