I'm participating in Movember this year, a fund raiser for prostate and testicular cancer. I don't know anyone well who has had either of these cancers, but I decided to decide my mustache to the memory of Dale Shewalter. Mr. Shewalter was a good man, who died an untimely death from cancer. Although Mr. Shewalter did not suffer from either kind of cancer Movember seeks to aid, he always had an awesome mustache when I knew him, so that is good enough.
My motivation behind Movember isn't so much about raising money for a cause, so much as remembering a man who was a positive influence on me and on many others. If one wanted to donate money, it should really go to the Arizona Trail Association.

I'll start November clean-shaven. I haven't seen my face without a beard in 10 years, so this ought to be interesting. I'll keep a daily picture log so that everyone can enjoy the fun.
