    Just throwing this out there, got a Sun Burn on my shoulders Sunday, and I have learned my lesson about that because damn doesnt it hurt wearing a back pack blower! I have the Red Max 8001 so that doesnt help at all since its pretty heavy, o well I'll get over it. Anybody else have this happen?

    100+ temps here and I have been wearing long sleeve shirts!

    Amazing how much cooler it is. I ordered half my last supply of company shirts 100% cotton and long sleeve.

    God only gave you one body. Abuse it now and you will not have it to use later. Wear sunscreen, protect yours eyes, ears and toes.

    I don't get sunburn... go straight to 'black'..... literally.
    Actually had someone come up to me on Tuesday and say.... "damn bro.... you are the darkest white man I have ever seen...." Held his arm up to mine.... I was darker by many shades.

    Sometimes it sucks. Of course, my *** is as white as the screen your looking at.

    I'm religous about wearing sunblock. I look like a spotted cow with all the moles I have. Luckily no one played connect the dots with me at sleepovers growing up.

    I had one removed off my back when I was in high school, since then, sunblock all the way.

    I will say the sun block makes me feel about ten degrees cooler, that's enough for me. I especially like how they make it in spray form now too, much easier and less greasy.

    We need to start a pic thread of the perma socks/ shirts everone has.:laugh:
