    Well hello friends!

    It has been a while. I have not been particularly active on social media over the last yeast or so; this platform being no exception.

    As you can see I’ve not shaved in over 2 months. Thought I’d grow a beard and this is the longest I’ve ever gone before shaving. I do look forward honing a nice edge and swiping it off but I’ll wait just a little longer. I’m still here! To all a Merry Christmas and safe and prosperous New Year!

    Just seeing if anyone is still out there. Pics are from my last ride with number one son who's recently joined the USAF. Hope everyone is well!

    It's got 26°C and a whopping 92% humidity. Fascinating city, though.

    Well, it's a tad warm here. Meißner Tremonia Mint Ice Menthol helps somewhat. Still, the heat is stifling. But the food is fantastic.

    If this article shows up twice, that's because the WLAN in this hotel is really slow.

    Nice and fresh! It’s hot and humid in Eastern NC! Very appropriate for a day like today!

    Same old, but still the best travel setup I could find. Meißner Tremonia Mint Ice Menthol, Frank Shaving synthetic, Schick Adjustable.
