So you go in search of lousy weather?

Re: Not really in the shade

Rate wasn't the right word, total number is right. The highest rates are smaller population countries with a population of pasty white european histories. Just by getting a sunburn can double your chances of skin cancer. I'm not saying the sun doesn't cause cancer, just I don't use sunscreen. I also don't get sunburns. I use clothing, canvas and build up a tan rather than a few "cooking" sessions. I am of italian heritage so I don't burn easy and can tan rather dark. So feel free to use whatever you wish.

I go in search of less crowded cruising areas!

And the dermatologist warned me that I should now refrain from exposing myself to the sun: when I was a boy, my parents didn't believe in sun protection.
