Let the weight of the head do the cutting. My passes are with the grain, relather, across the grain, relather, and the against the grain. Followed by spot touch ups.

Are you using a cream/paste or a solid bar/puck type lather?
I'm using a puck. How do I get rid of the badger smell on the brush? Damn it stinks.

remote control airplanes? Hell yeah. All the pay of an operator, all the danger of a hobbyist! :lmao:

We test RPA jets in my unit. I see those ****s arriving at the gym for PT when I'm suited up leaving for my bs. Rumor on the street is that they work day shift 10-2

embrace the badger! Or just wait a smidge 'til the stench goes away. A more heavily fragranced cream will make it go away. Try proraso menthol if you're on the cheap! Feels amazing on the face too....especially in summer

Badger smells like wet *******. The VDH puck that it came with smells very good but it is extremely mild and subtle. I've been washing it with shampoo and soap all day to try to make it calm down. Alas, the ******* prevails.

Is Proraso available at any stores? Amazon took 9 days to deliver.

I have no idea on building lather with a puck. Crane might be able to advise you better. IIRC he said he uses a puck. Also on the smell. I have a small synthetic hair brush and a nicer pure badger brush. Neither have any distinct smell to them. A quick google search pulled up some links (I have found a lot of good info on badger and blade. Tips, reviews, etc.). They say some remedies such as borax, vinegar, and shampoo will take the smell out as will just using it for a week or two (if you can get past the smell). For more tips and such there's a guy on YouTube by the username of Geofatboy. He's kinda annoying and I can tell I wouldn't like him (gives off a Harley-Davidson macho man kinda vibe) but he has some good videos. I would think he would have something on building lather with a puck.

Shave #2

A few nicks on the chin again, not noticeable. The lather dries very quickly, and it seems it needs lots of water. Still trying to get the angle down, but it was better today. Brush smelled better considering how much I've washed it already.

As soon as I get the technique down I want to try another soap.

When you lather make sure you are swirling for about a minute to develop a full thick lather. Start with less water and add until you get microscopic bubbles. It should look a lot like out of the can cream.

When you apply it to your face make sure your face is a little damp. Then take a good minute to apply the lather to your face. It gives it time to soften up the beard.

I would also suggest cold water to shave. Luke warm is Ok too. But too hot can mess with your face.

Yup. Those are my tips.

There are various forms of "real flight hours".

All I know is a pilot I talked to up at creech said to maintain a lisence o fly real airplanes he has to go fly a private plane or wait to pcs because the FAA doesn't yet recognize drones

Although he did saying flying preds was better than flying c-17s

I would think flying 60s would be the best pilot gig
Not a full on auto pilot so you have to fly the thing, get to fly close to the ground, but no comfy seats

I'd think getting to actually fly anything would be way cooler than flying something from a trailer...

I think A-10s would be a *****in plane to fly. Apparently they came up with some new medal for drone operators and cyber operators for actions that would rank higher than a bronze star with V device. What kinda bull**** is that? You get a V device for getting shot at and risking your life and some schmuck operating in the states can get something of higher precedence?

Have never taken anything over 2 weeks. Not sure I'd be able to come back after a month gone.

I took a little over two weeks last time. I wasn't missed but I felt like I was gone for too long.
