Dear Caving UK

I did a caving trip 93 years ago and I was so excited I haven't had a shave since.  I want to do another and someone said I should go for something really really strenuous before I get too old and completely out to lunch.  My sedan chair will get me as far as Somersetceistershire but not much further.  What do you suggest and is there anything that will prevent my beard getting caught on the velcro of my chin strap, leaving a burning sensation in the chin region?
