For those of you who have not seen me since March, I thought you would get a kick out of me with the beard... Believe it or not, it does help to keep me warm at night while sleeping out in the woods. Also, I have been wearing a hat or bandana when I go out in public. My hair is getting pretty long, but not long enough yet to do anything with it. So I just keep it covered for now.
I haven't decided if I'm going to let the hair continue to grow or not. I'll decide for sure by September. We'll see how patient I am. And even though I am getting rave reviews on the beard, I'm afraid that when I finish hiking for the summer, the beard will likely disappear.
This is what I look like most of the time these days. Very casual.
This is a "Beef Cake" shot... Mr. April in the Handsomest Hikers of 2009 Calendar.
In this close up you get a better view of my rain hat (as opposed to the Life Is Good - Peace Sign hat in the top and bottom pictures.)
In this shot, you can see my Chameleon walking shoes from the previous post and my favorite walking stick that I will write about in the next post.
Peace and Love,
