This is my first attempt at ever growing it pas ta week or so and I figured id share my growing journey with everyone here and hopefully pick up some advice along the way and maybe share some of my ups and downs of growing as well.
My background- Just separated from the Air Force after serving for the past 7.5 years so ive never had a chance to grow anything past a week or so of leave and even then id normally shave midway through leave to make it easier to shave when I came back.
Current- I currently live and work in Bethel, Alaska as an Air Traffic Controller. If anyone has ever heard of or been to Bethel you'll know that there is zero to do here except work and go to the gym so I have plenty of time to take pictures and update this journey as it goes forward and apologize if I post too often or too much as it will probably be because of boredom lol.
Currently mid week 4 going into 5. Using Mountaineer brand beard wash every 2-3 days and their WV timber beard oil as well. Plan is to just keep neck and top line as clean as i can while letting the rest of the hair do its thing. I have no set amount of time I plan to grow but i figure ill give this a good 6 months of growth and then go from there on if its for me or not, but until then ill enjoy the process as much as possible and see what it can do.
