Well here are two pics of what it looked like just before I had to cut/shave it off. (A little over two months worth)

Wayne, I still have some film in the fridge. But I heard about these newfangled cameras that use a little card thing that holds a bunch of pictures. I guess I need to put down my razor for a while and see if I can grow some chin cover, been told that is a requirement for this trip. Don't want to get thrown off the boat cause I did not comply with the regs!

Scott.......who you gonna get to develop that film you've been saving? :?: Yep, you better get the new fangled camera with the card. We've missed each other over the last two weeks so are you getting fuzzy? Cool - now we can all be in the KFC club... :roflmao:
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

Wayne, I am looking for darkroom equipment on Ebay and Craigs list. Have some promising prospects! As for the chin cover, Tonight I told my bride of almost 30 years that the motif for this trip was chin whiskers. She informed me I should have started before today. I told that I had not shaved since last Friday. She then told that I should have started earlier, maybe around Christmas last year :shocked: However, I don't think that I will have the slickest chin on the boat, but my head may be another thing :thumbsup:

Somebody remind us to pick up some "suck the air out freezer bags" and shipping boxes when we get there so we have them ready for the processing.

Swabs are limited to one moderately sized bag each. Yea, we roll with forts, but we ain't yachts. If you snore you get to sleep with the bears. No bananas and no brussel sprouts!

Well, actually passed through security with no problems. (I usually get the "Special treatment" when I fly. (Purely random they say) First time I haven't been put through the wringer since 911.

Now the wait for "Da plane, Da plane"... :deadhorse: .
