My wife's grandfather inspired me to grow a beard he never did. Now I'm a second place USA national champion. It's been a great journey meeting friends from around the world. Who knew that a beard would unite us?" - Gerry Spiller
"Finish Carpenter for the last 20 years. I have a collection of classic Ford Mustangs 65, 66, 67 Coupes and a 68 Fastback. I also have a 1971 Bronco that I am currently working on. I compete in the occasional charity beard competition. I was inspired by the show "Whisker Wars". I knew I could grow an epic kick ass beard like the guys on the show, so I was bound and determined to do so! I've been growing a full natural beard now for 3 1/2+ years, that includes the stache untrimmed & untamed." - Jamie Murphy
"The reason I started growing my beard is because when my Grandfather passed away I found a newspaper clipping saying he won "Best Beard" back in 1967 centennial days! So I wanted to grow a beard and do the same. In 2015 I won 1st place out of 13 other beards for "Beard Full Beard". I'm MEAN about my beard! I will never be clean shaven again!! I am also MEAN about my Jeep, I go off-road where others can't. My motto is: Make your own luck!" - Jesse Elder
"The last time I shaved clean was 2007. The last time I cut my beard, down to an inch or less, was May 2013. I let it grow out prior to filming a short documentary I was featured in called Memory Collector. After that I just decided to let it keep growing. I've had the nickname "Crusty" for well over 25 years. Someone at work called me a "crusty old %#@@&%##" and it stuck. The "black thing" in my beard is a claw from an 8+ft brown bear I killed on my 51st birthday, at a distance of less than 20 paces. It was coming at my son and I when we were deer hunting". - Tom "Crusty" Cruickshank
