    There’s a great story about Andy Nisbet topping out on Ben Nevis in winter having just tunneled through a cornice. He looks up and sees a startled troop of Scouts, and covered in snow, goes up to the most frightened looking one bellowing ‘YOU LADDIE, WHAT YEAR IS IT?’

    Brilliant. And that is a fine, fine snow-beard photo.

    I strongly agree with point 9:

    We met a group of young men who had agreed not to shave all the way from Alaska to Ushuaia but really regretted it because they couldn’t “get laid”. Also met a guy who said he grew one on purpose to keep women out of his life. If you want to find love on tour get rid of the beard or trim it neatly!

    That’s a stark warning for all those boys heading away from home in search of love and adventure, Harriet.

      Mark, you may been in danger of sparking the biggest debate to hit the adventure community since Mallory and Irvine failed to return from their hill walk 90 years ago.

        Mark your beard is indeed very handsome. I do not think a neat beard like yours that steers potential love interests away. Its the more unruly sort that you might find a dead animal in that shouts “AVOID AVOID!”.

    We love our beards. While all the above are fair and rational points. Heart over head on this one – the beards stay. If they didn’t i’m sure cycling would be harder. Hears a before and after photo of our beards half way through our 8 month cycle around the world http://ridingforrhinos.org/2014/08/26/a-lot-can-change-in-4-months/

    At some point in a solo trip a man has to decide if you wants an ” epic expedition beard” . Or some loving……its one or the other boys, not both :). https://www.flickr.com/photos/shanecycles/6782069196/in/set-72157629085960864

    Funny how many guys don’t get that :)
