How long have you been growing your beard?

On and off since 2007. Trimmed as appropriate for the situation. Last time I shaved completely was 2010.

What started you on this path?

Had a cheesy chin strap in college, then went full Man when I moved to Alaska.

End goal for your beard.

All the men in my family have white facial hair. I intend to keep the legacy alive.

What is the funniest experience or comment that has happened to you because of your beard?

When I am shaven, I get carded. When I am bearded, people call me Sir.
