So after picking up all my gear today, I couldn't wait for my first shave. But after the entire afternoon and evening waiting in anticipation my nerves hit. This may seem bad, but in fact it gave me the answer to a good first shave.
1 beer per 70lbs. Results may vary.
I had a great time and as I new I was going to do this I didn't shave for 2 weeks while all my gear came in. In reality my lather sucked and I cut myself a few times, but beer has a great way of softening the blow.
Cheers and I will post my next after a bottle of Vodka...
