He shaved his head because hair + sunscreen + superconcentrated bug spray + sweat - showers = gross. Also, why not? Start out the new adventure with a clean slate...erm...head.
Though as he says, "Turns out, shaving your head doesn't make you braver."
Here are some pictures from the great event, plus a shot of him and his hiking partner getting ready to leave, showing off his ~45 pound pack :-) Note: his partner's pack weighs over 60 pounds! This is the most weight they will ever have to carry (the first stretch is the longest), but still. Oof!
dude, 60 pounds. Chris is going to regret that. Props to Will for being more prepared!ReplyDelete
