Not bad....but this one trumps Rick's peach fuzz. Until he grows a real beard that is.

I shaved off the beard this weekend in protest of this joke of a winter. Looking forward to MTBing and/or trail running a 14er this weekend.

Single digit temps are no joke. The lack of snow is (a bad joke).

I'm no longer Chewbacca. I shaved too. But not out of protest like Bean.

This would have been much more enjoyable in September, although it was satisfying to see all my admonitions to Broncos fans about John Fox come true. Crossfitter, the Champion of Summer, lost a wager on this game and now must hike two winter 14ers. Dreamin of summer, indeed.

“There are two kinds of climbers: those who climb because their heart sings when they’re in the mountains, and all the rest.” - Alex Lowe

"There have been joys too great to describe in words, and there have been griefs upon which I cannot dare to dwell; and with those in mind I say, 'Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper

Now that is awesome!

D - what's with shaving the wookie off your face? You weren't trying to impress a GIRL were you?? Also, I'll try to up the beard steez in the future.

Although I'm not a boarder, I think the below perfectly illustrates any sane person's attitude towards summer.....

A beard is not needed where I'm (more than) likely getting shipped to soon.
