    That’s a really unique shot. Was anyone else around when you took it? The selfie is something I rarely attempt. 😉

      Not a sinner. I was on top of a mountain and the beard was iced up. I couldn’t get that though.

    Beards are cool! Sadly, mine is becoming mostly gray.

    • Vincent says:

      I have it a year and a half now and it’s been great for the cold and wind on the mountains. But I don’t know about cool. Plus you’re the wrong gender :-D.

    I was also going to mention what an “odd” selfie angle. ;). But you cleared that up. My first year in NH I walked to class on the first freezing day and my runny nose froze. It was such an odd feeling and one I had no experience with before. Still makes me chuckle when I am reminded that people literally freeze when it’s that cold. Does your camera handle the COLD ok?
    Beards are IN right now! I’ll add more when I return home from work. 🙂

      I didn’t even notice about a selfie. I was aiming for a blog photo showing a beard with ice formations. But that indeed is what it is, a selfie. :-/
      Yeah, NH must have been Quite a shock, a Cool Runnings meeting the Calgary winter kind of shock.
      Does the Uni put that type of info on it’s site for freshers or is it a sporting opportunity to bet on which of them recover from the skin tightening cold, and stop squealing as they dash to the loo at night.

      Hipster eh, I don’t think anyone would put me in that region.
      It seems I’m blonder that I ever thought. So I actually have to have a full set, not just a longer stubble the black haired guys can get away with. Anyhoos, when it get’s long I catch myself in the bathroom mirror and think that looks very serial-killery, it needs a trim.

      Yes, the new one is weather sealed. And I use the new bag when on the mountain for it has double layers of padding. There’s an insert with cells that’s about 1/2 of an inch thick on the sides and bottom. It really the cold you need to watch with the battery. It stops it releasing the charge, but you can get around that by putting them in an inside pocket until you need them. But we wouldn’t have to worry about that. In NH you would though.

        There has been a shift in terms from metrosexual to lumbersexual. In a lot of ways not a bad shift if you ask me. But serial killer, I agree, is probably not the look you’re going for. :). The sales numbers for the mass market shaving companies have dropped over the last year or so which would show a trend in facial hair, regardless of the reason. I think there are women who love them and who hate them, but I think most can go either way.
        Yes too many first year winter mishaps in NH to mention. One of the numerous reasons I’m glad social media wasn’t a thing back when I was in school.

        • Vincent says:

          Yep, I’d like to hear some of those NH stories but perhaps it’s best not to.

          I never really got the metrosexual thing. It just seemed wrong for a guy to take more time getting ready to go out than the woman he’s with.

    I think this is my fourth or fifth winter now that I’ve grown a beard. I honestly don’t know how i survived winter without one. Once spring rolls around though I’ve never been able to keep it. I get the itch and off it comes until late fall.

    • Vincent says:

      I trim mine fairly hard and that stops the itch. I’ve found though the worst itch is from a food I’ve eaten that disagrees with me.
