Default How big is your beard?

It Isn't True Unless You Show Us A Picture

The other day at work, my supervisor jokingly said to me, "So when are you and Troy going to shave that stuff off your face?"

I guess I should start from the beginning.

I decided around Thanksgiving to stop trimming the goatee. Strangely enough, the only other guy who works with me decided to do the same thing(his name is Troy).

Thankfully the wife and work have not requested it to be trimmed.

It makes for some awesome brewing!

It varies, but it usually doesn't get longer than 1-1.5 inches. Every time I trim what's left of my hairline, I trim the face-pubes as well. People at work usually start to call me Amish by the time I think it's ready to trim.

I wore it longer when I had a goatee. Now that I have a beard I trim it more often. I usually only go 4-6 weeks between trims. I guess I am also in the habit of doing remaining hair and "face-pubes" all at once.

I'm at a solid lumberjack level right now, but working on growing it out like a wizard. I think it's been at least 4 months going on 5 since the last shave, and I'm not shaving again until I'm back in the states in May. It helps being a homeless bum so I don't have anyone bothering me to trim and my girlfriend supports it.
