    So since you guys are on a bashing roll this weekend. What are you doing to protect yourself from the sun? If you are wearing longsleeve shirts what kind are you wearing? Other then sunscreen.

    I was just reading a fishing mag talking about it.

    Sunscreen on the head and neck, ears. Usually a long sleeve shirt, contrasting color, underneath my work polo. If shorts, which usually it is, sunscreen on the legs.

    I wear a polo shirt and shorts; no hats or sunscreen. I suppose its not a bad idea to try to hide from the sun, but I can't be bothered

    I smoke cigs , ride a harley without a helmet and spend many a winter day running the old logging roads of northern Maine on a snowmobile at 80-100mph. I got a funny feeling it aint gonna be the sun that takes me out.
     
  5. I got bit by a friggin misquito that d-mn near killed me and has left me with a lifetime of physical problems. Life is one big crapshoot. People who spend a ton of time on protecting themselves from everything are the ones who seem to get the least done.

    Funny ya mention that. With my high risk lifestyle , my close call came in the form of a car accident caused by someone else crossing the center line while on their phone.

    I run with scissors.

    But I do put sunblock on back of my neck, my ears, face and exposed arms.

    You can protect your hands from UV by wiping glue joints with your fingers...

    NO shirt you are asking for all kinds of trouble from this group. No shirt and a earbuds and a IPOD. That is what i'm talking about.
