Agree with you, if you wear some clothes, I think you get reasonable protection.

Glad you are taking precautions. Noticed the change in some of your pics.
I always wear a hat. (Baldness will teach you that - sunburned head is painful). I have been wearing some old cotton pants and sometimes long sleeved cotton shirt. If its too hot, just wet them down some with river or lake water - swamp cooler effect. Evaporative cooling.
My dad is now 98. Has had several nasty's removed. Worked as a carpenter and a painter. I hope I don't have to go through as much as he has (but hope to live that long and still fish). I have a pic (but not able to post) of his latest surgery - for a small spot, they had to cut from near the corner of his eye to close to his ear. Looks a bit like Frankenstein. Took several months to heal since his skin is so thin, due to age.
