Before the trip began, I swore we wouldn't give Dave a lick of help. And we'll still abide by that promise - no help with food, lodging or transportation. But we're not immune to feeling a bit sympathetic to Dave's cause. So in that spirit, I present to you "No Shave Home: The Dave-Can't-Shave Solidarity Beard Contest."

Dave went razor-free on his journey in '09, and plans to go scruffy again this year. So as a sign of solidarity, we - his chase team - will follow suit.

PICTURES: Alaska Start for Dave Price

The rules are simple. You must be clean-shaven at the start of the trip and ditch your razor until Dave gets home. Pre-existing facial hair does not count.

Feel free to play along at home. We'll post updated mug shots as we go. Show us that you stand with Dave . . . or that you're lazy, too.

Mary Haynes (@Marytweet) will judge the beards at trip's end. To the winner: a shiny new razor, extra blades and the shaving cream of his choice, courtesy of the losers.

Your contestants are . . .
