Don't shave my legs at all. Whenever I see them smooth legs on a man I kind of wonder what part of Cali they grew up in, lol.

The hair on my legs and back makes my longjohns stand out at least a half inch, and that's a good thing at 40 below.

21 years unshaven

the day I met my wife for the first time , was the last time I shaved.
before that I had shaved some in my teens before my beard came in decent , I had shaved off my beard and kept just the Mustache in January of 1998 a few days before a job interview.

I kept shaving till I had been at the job several months.

I met my wife online and we had been talking a couple months in emails , when we met in person for the first time she said she liked beards and that was good news because I despised shaving.

haven't shaved since , took it down to a 1/2 inch a few times in the summer with the clippers but that is as close to shaving as I have been.

once a long beard has a good crust of ice it blocks the wind well natural insulation, I felt a little bad my sons face was all wind burned this winter when we were cutting wood , he is 15 and his beard hasn't quite filled in yet. it should in 3 more years

I know it's time to trim my beard when I shoulder my shotgun or rifle and get beard between the but stock and my shoulder , that pulls a little.

My first can of shaving cream, old spice, rusted out before it was empty.
Have used soap and a straight razor a few times.

Been thinking of shaving me head, but it might not grow back haha.

I have not shaved since 1972; just trim the beard every month or so.

The only constant in trapping is change so keep learning.

Mid September 1970 - a Z-GRAM from CNO said beards were allowed if they did not interfere with assigned duties. Haven't seen any good reason to shave since. I do keep it trimmed.

I haven't been unshaven as long as most on here. I haven't fully shaved in about 3 years... not that my beard comes in all that well. Kinda looks like I'll be the next trailer park star on COPS, but it's fine by me.


It's a trappers life for me

My last shave was in 1977 or 78. Do not remember exactly. Kept the mustache and beard trimmed until about 5 years ago. Just trim the mustache now.

I've been growing one in the winter and shaving it in the spring since '81 or so, and have had it year a round since '97. It is halfway down my chest and solid white. A couple of summers ago a friend of mine asked if I could water his cows for him for a few days while he was gone. One stop was at his son's house were he and his family lived. While there his 5 year old granddaughter came out to check me out. She had lots of questions, but never asked my name. I was told later that she went running into the house and told her dad" Noah or Moses is watering grandpa's cows and he is wearing BIB OVERALLS!!!"

Five or Six years ago I had 10 days off around Christmas. I decided I was going to take a break from shaving for that time and would shave again the day before I had to go back to work. At the end of that week, I just couldn't bring myself to pick up the razor. So many hours wasted shaving in those 40+ years that I will never get back.

For the first year, I would trim neatly every few days, maybe once a week. I'm down to the occasional wayward hair being plucked by fingers or snipped with my pocket knife.
