Got my first haircut since feb 3, 2015. Hair was getting in my eyes when dry fire practice.

You remember the date you last got a haircut?!?  Good grief... I barely remember what I did yesterday.

Haha, it's such a rare thing. Living hand to mouth, can't really afford to get it cut all year, just in the spring when there is a little surplus. Also, the change is drastic, from shoulder length to high and tight. So I remember the events.

I cut my hair every three or four months, when it starts to bug me. $20 Wal-Mart clippers, 1/2" comb, run over head until no more hair comes off.

Same here, except I use 1/4". Classic "buzz-cut". Never need to comb it. Jump out of the shower and go. :mellow:

Yep, some anarchists can look very conservative...  Did my 1/4ly check on my bugout bags, mainly as a reminder of what was there and partially as a shelf life check on some items.  Picked up more rubbing alcohol, h. peroxide and other bulk first aid stuff in lieu of an empty ammo shelf...

A thought I had a while back but may not have mentioned.  If you are on a strict prepping budget, you prepbuckc might be stretched better buying something in place of the ammo and you do some learning in the cheaper skill.  If your ammo is critical low-yes you may want to pay the price premium, but there are less fun preps that may also be lagging.  Spending Prepbucksc on the lagging item might be a good idea.

I taught a nine hour class on Land Navigation. Now, others are better prepared.

That's really cool. That would be an awesome class to take. I wish that I lived closer to some of the members here. Not for them to live near me though. Stay out of "the VAMPIRE state"! :ph34r:

My last haircut was somewhere in late 2013.  I control it in a pony tail more often than not. It seems to have decided a bit onto my shoulders is as far as it wants to grow.

Odd, when you think about it, the assumption that your body growing hair is a mistake of nature, or whoever your creator is. We don't cut off fingers, ears or toes, but figure cutting hair makes no difference; that we lose nothing in the process.

A number of cultures throughout history have thought otherwise. Hair was strength, intuition, connection to the cosmos, fighting ability ... Cutting off the defeated enemy's hair was practiced by numerous conquering armies to insure rebellion or a return match would fail.

I am not so convinced that I will go on a sales campaign for letting it grow, but do suggest you consider it.

For the last few years, I'd been buzzing my head on Patriot's Day
skipped it this go round

Almost cut my hair
Happened just the other day
It's gettin' kind of long
I could've said it was in my way

But I didn't and I wonder why
I feel like letting my freak flag fly
And I feel like I owe it, to someone, yeah

Good grief. Hair grows back... much too fast in my case. It's a matter of convenience, just as with clothing. Even though I wasn't created with clothing, I'm extremely grateful to wear stuff for a great many reasons. 20 below zero comes to mind. LOL

Each to his/her own. If your hair is important to you, for whatever reason, more power to you. I despise having long hair, so I'll cut mine as often as I feel the need. I won't even go into "beauty parlors," however, and often am reduced to cutting my own hair. Not fancy, but it gets the damned stuff out of my eyes and off my neck. :)

I wore my hair long for years, until I realized that I was doing it primarily because my dad didn't like it that way. Then I started cutting it short to save myself the grief of maintenance and annoyance.

Mine is really fine. It forms a polish plait if I don't brush it out more than once a day.

I wear my hair long because combing it and washing it regularly is less of a hassle to me than going to the barber and having somebody else touching me. 

My last haircut was....carry the one....August of 1995.  Couldn't tell you the exact date, but it was shortly before school started, which means "August", and the year I started 8th grade, which means 1995.
