The beards of Casey

Page 1 of 4 Next
This week at Casey: 29 March 2013

In time honoured tradition, one of the projects male expeditioners have over the year is to cultivate a large and lustrous lock of manhood, flowing from the chin like a river and emulating the explorers of long ago. The competition between expeditioners for the longest 'food saver' is fierce and many of these soup strainers are here to stay.

However some, sadly, have bowed out as they preferred not to deal with the heat of wearing an animal pelt glued to their face.

Below you will find photos of the larger beards, some grown for many a year and others new additions as of the time of departing Hobart.

Later in the year we'll revisit these monuments to masculinity and warmth and see how they're faring.
