Holy freakin' hairdo, Batman!


Who is this man? What is he doing? That is me, without any hair. Told my mom, "Take it all off!" And she did. Buzz! Buzz! After the hair came off, I showered, cleaning off those little annoying pieces of hair that never come off except in a shower, then took pictures of myself.

My official weigh in, sans hair, came to 179.6 pounds according to the scale in my mom's bathroom.

I have shaved my last shave. The trail awaits....

All I really can say about this is: hair today, gone tomorrow! Literally!

Have a GREAT hike, and don't worry... when the cat's away, the mice will... um, no, that's not what I meant to say... I meant to say that you have nothing to worry about, because what could POSSIBLY go wrong? Errrr, maybe that's not right either. Perhaps: Hey, only 22 hours and 46 minutes until I'm in charge! No, sounds too revolting (that's nothing new!)... Ok, how about: I'll try not to screw things up too much while you are gone! Yeah, that's it. Maybe not the most encouraging words, but give me points for honesty!

Take care of yourself, and we wish you nothing but the best and hope you have a wonderful time!

Hope gators don't have a "thing" for bald guys...

Those Florida mosquitoes will be pleased with the extra landing zone you've provided, Ryan.

Seriously, though, hope the hike is amazing (so we'll enjoy the updates)! We'll be tagging along vicariously.

Woot! Bald guys are hot. :)

Have a FABULOUS time out there. Hope you find everything you're looking for out there on the trail.

We'll miss you! :)

Wow, you really did it! I think you're going to really love it. Don't forget to post an after picture from atop Springer mountain. I just got a premium membership for myself and one for my sister too. Our way of helping out with your latest adventure.
Hike on!

As "before" pictures go, it's good. You look clean, fresh, and eager to start. Now we are waiting to see the updates as your facial hair overtakes your grinning features, the dirt cakes the rest of you, and the cooties start squirming. :-) Happy Trails.

Nonono, you didn't do it right! The bzzzz, bzzzz is only the first step. Then you need to lather it up and shave it for the full effect! Smoooth and shiny!
