One of my life goals is an adventure on THE ORIENT EXPRESS ever since reading Agatha Christie. I've imagined several companions from a tall, lithe contemporary Josephine Baker, Eurasion engenue in a tight split silk dress with Mandarin Collar or Russian aristocrat framed in furs.
 Jennifer in the 6th grade who looked like Dianna Rigg and moved without saying goodbye was long ago eliminated.
I was watching David Suchets' documentary trip again and looked at the tiny, fold out sink. I imagined my shaving kit on the fold out bed mixed
with silk undergarments as I tried dressing with my companion, periodically falling into each other in a sudden sway of the cars or without.
I think that would be a sahve to remember.
Yours?

I would like to have shaved in DAS BOOT submarine during an American missile attack, using a Mühle R41 2011 edition with a new feather DE blade for 1.st pass and then using the Above The Tie Kronos H2 Open Comb with a KAI blade for 2.nd pass, and then just when doing the touch up pass, the missile hits the front of the submarine and I no longer really care if my shave was BBS or DFS Biggrin

Kav, I believe yours would be an adventure to enjoy.

I like the old west.  Maybe something by the chuck wagon, small mirror, old straight, beat up boar brush, old puck of Williams.  Strop the razor on a pair of chaps, and have at it.

Either that or something like the scene from Rio Bravo where Angie Dickerson gives Dean Martin a shave.

I'd like to have a relaxing shave in zero G, in low-Earth orbit, awaiting the next shuttle to the colony on Earth's moon.

Clause, My mother watched RED OKTOBER until I could say the lines. During the Cuban Missile Crisis an aggressive US destroyer skipper did attack a Soviet submarine near, but not crossing the blockade line. The Soviet sub was badly damaged; no communications, lights going out and the
officers debating if they should launch their nuclear missiles as surely war had broken out. The Captain chose to continue evasive action and
eventually escaped and learned theirs was a isolated incident. THAT offficer avoided nuclear oblivion and few even knew this happened. later during the Reagan administration the Soviets received false indicators the USA was launching a suprise first strike and again held off until WE
realised our system was SNAFUed. Reagan was so rattled by escalating gtensions from rhetoric he immediately sought Detant. 
Find an old film called THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING.- and finish your shave.

For me, I would like to shave at a relaxing hotel & spa somewhere in Iceland... A place where I could truly feel totally relaxed and refreshed with a focus only on rejuvenation.

Maybe that's a sad commentary on my work-centric life that I'd rather go relax than go on an adventure. But, I know that I would be more prepared to live actively after returning from such a restorative vacation.

I would like to get that laser hair treatment to make my lines nice and neat around my cheeks and neck, and then stop shaving my face and grow a sweet beard.  I would still shave my head.  For my head, there is this big, white house in D.C. that has alot of gates and police around it.  I would like to shave in one of the many bathrooms of that house the morning of January 2nd, the year I became POTUS.  Id like to shave there for...umm let's say 8 years, give or take a couple of days.

Good stuff here.  I actually took my kit camping with us last year, hoping to get in a head shave (no mirror needed) using bottled water out among the pines on a nice brisk summer morning.  Alas, the dream was only that.

The camp site my friends chose was out among desert scrub, the nearest pine over a mile away near the camp store.
My 2 year old and 4 year old decided they would love to get up with me at sunup rather than spend more time sleeping in the tent
Instead of a brisk morning, I woke to a nice sweltering AZ heat
The two scorpions that crossed my path on the way to the car to get the ice chest made me wonder if a nice distracting shave wasn't the best idea...

For a month?  A month of Sundays, no a month of leap years

When I worked the muletrain at the Canyon we got it in our heads to camp out just before one of the rare snowfalls on the north rim. I had a  canvas bedroll with 4 wool blankets and a sachet kitten and slept undisturbed while my fellow 'skinners raced for the truck to sleep sitting up in
these plastic things. I woke up in a iced cocoon and had to bust free. The coffeepot was on and I sat up to receive a cup. My riding partner said
' uh, kav,uh, you may not want to move much' to late, I was grasping for this stick or rock pressing on my side- and picked up a very torpid buzzworm who had embraced my bodywarmth in the sudden snowfall. I later claimed it was an eagle shreaking overhead and not me.

Kav, you a such a romantic, and I always enjoy your storytelling. For me, it would to travel back in time to the 1950's and have a shave with my grandfather, who I adored and loved watching him shave when I was a young boy.

I'd like a good soak in the Starkenberger Beer Pools in Tarenz, Austria, then a slow, relaxing, luxurious shave followed by a world class dinner with a sampling of the finest local beverages, accompanied by my bride of 3 decades, and I have hair. Thick, dark hair.
