Just getting started. Acquiring things as I can afford to. Just some stuff Ive acquired on Amazon and at the drug store. Using Tapatalk on my phone to post and the battery is low, maybe I'll post the details later.

Thank you all for the welcome!

As far as my kit I am still putting it all together and figuring it out. I had been looking at getting a DE razor for about a year or two but was distracted by other things. After a pretty awful year last year, it occurred to me that I should stop looking and start doing. No time like the present to pick up new hobbies and interests. Looking at brewing my own beer soon too.

As far as my current kit. It's not like supper awesome. It's what I could afford and looked interesting.

My razor is a Merkur 180
I have two brushes. An Escali badger brush which I've been using primarily. The other one is a VDH boar brush I found while at the drug store looking for something for my mom.

Admittedly I have mostly been using whatever old cans of shaving cream I have to use them up. I have some new stuff I bought In a tube, Cremo because of a rebate. Used it once but my technique royally sucked. I have two other tubes also but I forget what they were exactly.

Doing a lot of research now, I often do that anyway, but this time it's on something useful.

Blades at the moment are just some drug store ones I bought (CVS & Walgreen's) and I have some Dorco blades also but I think they're in the back of my car which is in the shop with transmission issues for the third time, they better fix it this time. I plan on driving to Orlando for Megacon this month, better not strand me there!

Haven't shaved much in the last two weeks, my mom had surgery on her foot, now she's in the hospital with pneumonia, probably won't be out until Monday.

Sorry for the novel, not much else to do sitting in a hospital room.
