HaHa,this is to the boys mostly.Are you going to shave you Head before you leave>? My hear has been short ever since i got out of the service. seems like a good idea to shave it at start to help identify ticks. Thought about a GA-ME logo or maby a WB. on the side)

im going to let mine go completely with the beard to boot, but figure in the summer heat i may break down and shave my head.

never had a tick on my head though. usually around the belt line or below.

Closely cutting your hair isn't a bad idea. Yeah, your head too.

Cutting your head is not a good idea. ;).

When (or if) you shave your head, make sure you wear a hat to minimize sunburn (you will probably get some, anyhow).

Don't use sunscreen on the front of your shaved head or you will end up sweating it into your eyes. :)

Skin head no, shave it real short yup. I am gonna buzz it to about a quarter inch or so the day before I leave. This will allow me to keep it short and not need to cut it again until after I am done with the trail.

last time i shaved was 12/24/93. cut off pony tail, beard and mustache. my head is not where i worry about ticks (others can help check and eazy to find). as for shaving or trimming other areas, i do.
