What kind of tan?
As I've grown older and somewhat wiser (and more concerned about skin cancer), I've stopped pursuing a deep dark tan and am happiest with a nice even medium tan. I hate admitting to having a streak of vanity but I much prefer when my tan is relatively even with tan lines as barely discernable as possible -- not easy to accomplish when I have to wear clothes much of the time. I wear shorts of various lengths to help "blur the lines" and sometimes wear long-sleeved (but lightweight) shirts when others might opt for t-shirts.
Wont be trying to tan, other than slowly conditioning to not burn as the season progresses. I spend most of my day outside and very rarely wear anything other than mowing. Takes me 8 to 10 hours to mow everything so have started wearing long sleeve shirt and hat. Already had a chunk cut out of my back, not looking to do it again.
So, I will be tan and no tan lines either, when I last had tan lines it was forearms, face and feet tanned, everything else scary white! Coaching in the summer does that!
