Badass mountaineer and volunteer McQueen!
A painter’s got a canvas. The writer’s got reams of empty paper. A musician has silence.

I’m all for a quiet life. I just didn’t get one.

No - but we should! Someone out there must have a Beard McQueen story?

Ah, the beard...to know it is to love it. Brad was going to grow a goatee for our first Rainier attempt, but I told him the mountain would be insulted by a goatee and that he should do a beard or nothing. So, the beard began, but in a much more controlled manner. Then there was the brief appearance of the muttonchops/mustache for a party and finally, the beard in his current form. I've heard a rumor that he hikes with a water mister to build up the ice beard :-k

Melissa - Thanks for the history of "The Beard" It adds to the McQueen mystique!
