FUBAR is a acronym that originated in the military to stand for the words "I ***ed up beyond all repair. Maybe this is what he has done. I have had some bad experiences just as the hikers Moose and Popcicle had all along the AT. Have seen hell raisers cause a friendly site or section to turn hostile, case and point, in Virginia near a church pickneck ground I was nearly shot because a bunch of idiot hikers had trashed up the church and pickneck ground when I stopped to get water. A little old lady demanded that I get off her property of she would drop me right in my tracks. I moved on very quick.

Always thought it stood for " F***ed up beyond all recognition."

Prozac, you could be right, but anyway the boy may be in serious trouble.

I'd be curious to know why he chose the acronym for "screwing up" as a Trail Name.

Was he trying to live up or down to the "name?"

Here's a suggestion for his new "trail name:" "Hi, my name is FUBAR and I'm an alcoholic."
