No trimming! No shaping! Embrace the Whiskerino!

After four months of unadulterated growth, no trimming or shaping of any kind, not just of the face but also of the head, this journey has come to an end. (See how it started) My sadness is more than offset by my lovely wife's joy.

I wasn't expecting to trim for today's goodbye photo, but I've enjoyed all the new looks today. And I wanted to show you all that I don't always look like a troll or a hobo. I also wanted to show that I'm keeping it.

Much love to @mackle for letting me in late, and keeping me in when I was oh so close to being shamed. This has been an unbelievable experience and I am in his debt.

Thanks to all of you for the participation, creativity, comments, and encouragement. I know this is the "last" Whiskerino, but I am sure we will all do this again. So until next time, adieu.

I've also come to enjoy my beard a lot more without the creepy upper cheek part.

Best wishes to you and your family, sir.

Lookin sharp! The full blown out hobo beard is a thing of beauty all its own but I'm not sure it would ever classify as "kissable" - so you've certainly made the right choice.

Thanks for being here, contributing your goods and being a part of the community on the whole. Much appreciated all around!

We do it all for them. Without them we would have nothing but our beards. And what is that really?
