"Nick G, I started growing my Yeard December 10th of 2009 and have had one ever since. My advice let it grow and shampoo and condition it, this will help to cut down on itchiness. Good Luck and good growing!"
"What rites of passages did your father do with you or do you wish he did with you? Then that would be your answer Steve. If I had a son it would be hunting and dressing and cooking the animal, camping, building and sustaining a fire, making his…"
"I would look at that as hazing the newbies, they have been through it so they want you to fret over their experiences. I am not really sure why parents do that, we don't and we didn't have that many people do that to us."
How long are you letting your beards grow in? I couldn't grow hair on either side of my lip but I let it alone and it grow in blonde at first and then turned brown about 3 months in. My advice: Lose the razor and let it grow."
"I have seen Paleo books and articles that say go 75-85% to start out. As far as cost goes, if you buy produce in season it is cheaper and if you can save a bit and you have a deep freeze you can go to a farm and get you meat there cheaper than the…"
"I use my thumb as a bellow, placing it over the bowl and after a few puffs give it a gentle breath. That generally keeps it lit. Also, after I pack it I take a puff before lighting it, if there is no resistant you are fine if there is you packed it…"
"I generally keep a year round beard and find that in the summer if I have my hair (not the beard) short the beard doesn't make me any hotter. So for me instead of the beard going away in the spring it is usually my hair that I shave off."
"Upkeep of a beard takes no longer than shaving everyday! Excuses! But I had a beard all summer and found it wasn't any hotter than shaving, actually it kept a lot of my face from sunburn. Men are supposed to have beards only on days ending in…"
"Mental health care is decent here, we have a couple of psychiatrists from the US running their clinics here. So far I've been to two, the first a couple of years ago and it was the regular routine (taking, anti-depressants) and she felt I was…"
"In a moment of temporary insanity I asked a former show guest who I knew hunted (Rodale had challenged him to live off only his garden for a month, which he could supplement with his frozen deer meat) if I could accompany him on a hunting outing.
"Jon-Pierre, I am not sure of the mental health care in your country, but it sounds very much like you could use some true help rather than just friendly advice. Your current state of mind has been so low for so long that it is affecting your entire…"
"I have a little Stihl MS 210 with a 16" bar. Works great however I wish the chains had a couple more teeth. Sharpen the chains on the saw and only by hand. I've had a lot of practice at this as I worked as a landscaper for 8 years and we…"
"Thanks for the comments it is really appreciated. I did mean physically sick, I always go to the doctor but they can't seem to figure out what is wrong (I get bad sinus problems, difficulty breathing, random back pains, chest pains) but…"
