15 November 2014 – Cold, Gray, and Windy

OK, so the whole day wasn’t this way.  I was out on my motorcycle earlier and it was cold and windy, but it was also sunny  After I dropped by home to take care of some stuff, it got gray and it reminded me of one of my favorite songs: I remember when Hazy Shade […]

MY SADDLEBAG IS BACK AFTER TWO YEARS!!!

I moved from Las Vegas, NV to central Utah back in June of 2012.  Around the beginning of July 2012, my right side saddlebag fell off of my motorcycle and I couldn’t find it.  I was angry, frustrated, and more than a little sad when I had to switch to a backpack.  Luggage is much […]

Gotta Love Zippo Lighters!

I was going through links from somewhere and I came across one regarding Zippo lighters and their usefulness in a survival situation.  I thought, “Hey! I have one of those!” My Zippo is a plain one that’s just brushed metal.  That said, it still is a Zippo I went down and got it out, filled […]

27 September 2014 – My New Shaving Brush!

So, as my few readers know by now, I’ve switched to a double edge razor from an electric.  I actually started out on cartridge razors, but the cartridges were (and still are) EXPEN$IVE!!!  I got an electric shaver quite a while back which saved a ton in cartridge replacement costs, but it had its own […]

17 September 2014 – Shaving, Shaving Soap, and Improvisation

So, I guess I could also have titled this something like “Wet Shaving – The Adventure Continues” and it would have worked  It’s definitely different from electric shavers and nowhere near a cartridge system.  It takes skill, patience, persistence, and no little bit of courage as you put a really rather sharp and minimally protected […]

9 September 2014 – Gillette Tech – First Shave

So, I just had my first shave with that new Gillette Tech razor I just got.  I made sure to prep my beard a bit better by keeping it wet during my shower and shaving afterward this time.  Nothing fancy involved here – Just canned Barbasol shave foam, a Dollar General re-branded Personna blade, and […]

My New Used Razor – Early Gillette “Fat Handle” Tech

So, some of my readers might recall from a previous post that I’m switching from electric shavers to old school double edge razors for a few reasons.  I’d even ordered an inexpensive razor from eBay.  I’d thought I was getting a Weishi which had good reviews, but it was actually a Nanjie.  That inexpensive razor is just […]

So, I’ve had a bit of an issue with shaving lately.  My electric shaver has always given me issues, but it’s getting worse.  It’s causing irritation, ingrown hairs, and missing a bunch of spots among other things. I switched to an electric to save money over cartridge razors.  As you can see below from the […]
