    Default Well, I'm not really new here but...

    Howdy yaíll!
    Iím not a new member, but Iíve realized that I never took the time to properly introduce myself.

    My IRL name is Paul D. Iíve been SR shaving for ~2 years now and I donít believe that I would be doing this without SRP. The wetshaving process and straight razor shaving in particular have changed my life. I know it sounds clichť, but I also know that many of you can relate.
    I now enjoy the entire process, from honing to stropping, to lathering, and of course shaving. It seems like a part of my life that I never knew was missing.
    Thereís just something about taking the time to do things right. Being a well groomed man in todayís day and age is something that is too often overlooked.

    Anyways, on to the reason for the thread.

    Iím usually a lurker on many forums, and if I do post I keep my anonymity. But here, heck, weíre friends so Iím about due for introductions.

    I spend my days running body piercing studios. Iím a partner in a company that owns and runs piercing, tattoo and tanning studios. Out 8th location is opening next week.

    I have an amazing boxer pup that I spend 20+ hours a day with. Sheís my buddy.

    Iím not married, but I am dating an amazing woman who happens to be the step-daughter of a member here. We both love to travel and have been to Thailand, Canada and Costa Rica in the past year. Thatís another story for another day thoughÖ

    When Iím not working or restoring razors Iím usually working out at the gym, running (Iím doing my 2nd Ĺ marathon in june), boxing or practicing Muay Thai (6+years).

    I have a complete restoration setup in my 1 br apartment, have a display case with ~70 razors, and I have never sold a single razor (yet?). I'm currently in the market for a house and one of the things I'm looking for is a garage so that I can finally have a decent workshop.

    I played in a touring punk band for ~10 years, and spent ~2.5 years total on the road.

    Oh yea, Iím also a gun lover and I love shooting black powder pistols.

    So, thanks SRP for being such a great community and for continually welcoming new members with open arms! (and newbs, donít wait 2 years to introduce yourself ).

    P.S. Sorry if this is too wordy or inappropriate for this new forum. It took a to actually write this out.

    I didn't think it's wordy or inappropriate, on the contrary, thanks for sharing with us.

    Most interesting bit for me was

    How much for the women and the children ?
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    How cool. I plan on running a 1/2 next year too. I'm scoping out two now.

    I might be careful with the whole dating a guy's daughter who uses a straight razor thing though . . .
