I've gone electric rechargeable in the trailer. Can't stand the feel of left over shaving cream, or soap or guck on my face.

2X. While I'm a confirmed blade shaver at home and in campgrounds with bathrooms (Schick Hydro & Neutrogena shaving cream), while dry camping I use a Norelco triple head rechargeable. I did have a Norelco PQ 208 2 head rotary shaver that operated on 2 AA batteries - cheap at under $20.00, slower than the rechargeable, but handy for dry camping since there is no need to recharge; just change the batteries. I lost the shaving head & haven't been able to find another one while on the road.

I second the secret shave oil

While I use shaving soap and brush with my old trusty adjustable Gillette safety razor at home, for traveling I use a smaller Weishi safety razor, plus the Secret Shave oil mentioned by Norm. The Secret Shave oil is fairly cheap at WalMart and lasts a loooooog time, just a few drops per shave is all that's needed. I do have a Norelco rechargeable rotary as a backup though.

For years I've just used warm water and a Gilette Turbo Razor. I stopped using soap after reading Einstein only used water because it was a universal solvent.

The old trick is use any liquid hair conditioner on your face and you will get a very close shave with a safety razor. It cleans off quickly, good for your skin and you will smell nice.

I have been shaving for years the old fashion way, with brush and soap, in fact i actually make my own and also sell them. I shave at the galley sink with my own personal wash basin that fits into the sink to rinse blade, I use a make-up mirror that hangs on the cabinet knob and just lifts off when done. Carl

Ha! if I tried today, to use a double edged single blade razor, like the one I used many years ago...I most likely would bleed to death from all the nicks, and blood thinners that I now take!

Are any of you old enough to remember the old Schick razors that had a continuous single ribbon blade that a person adjusted from a used area to a new sharp area?

I once had a nice beard for several years. Not to save money, but because I believed I looked like a distinguished professor or writer!

Other people , including my dear wife, thought I looked like a homeless bum!

To be on topic...I mostly shave setting at a park bench with a bowl of hot water, and a small folding mirror.

Where do you shave?
(like the OP - I too am ..."Lately, in my 70s,"

However, if I do start shaving - to answer the OP's original question -
Where do you shave? - 'I think I'd start shaving, just below my nose, and continue south to my neck - sliding from the left ear as far as the right one. Am I missing something ?

Cool I don't see my method.

I shave every couple of days outside where the light is better with my Norelco rechargeable electric. I have a suction cup mirror which doesn't like to stick to the outside of Homelet. I find that one can shave by feel. If it feels like whiskers, shave it off. Luckily I have a big nose.
