To Shave Or Not To Shave Felix Wong

Apparently, this is what happens when I don’t shave for four days—like during many periods of the Tour Divide mountain bike race.

I go from how I am depicted in the main photo, to this:

[Note: after I took the last photo in the bathroom of a Subway sandwich shop in Grants, NM, I decided to shave immediately so as to not scare off the Subway server before she could make me a sandwich!]

I think I will keep shaving.

    Not quite the full look as you, but after returning from a 6-day backpacking trip a few years back, I was looking rather mountain-man-like!
