    Cool Shaving?

    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.
    I'm so confused, I'm not sure if I lost my horse or found a rope.
