What Doug said. Ruben, if your mind is already made up, then go well, but you will be missed.For the coverup, aside from sunblock, there is a line of beach and surf wear (I believe the brand is Alpha) that blocks 100% of the sun's rays, but is ultralightweight for swimmers and surfers; you might want to see if that would help. It comes in both long and short sleeve/pants, like wetsuits.Tracy Latimer> From: MexicoDoug at aim.com> To: meteoritemall at yahoo.com; meteorite-list at meteoritecentral.com> Date: Wed, 11 Apr 2007 00:32:26 -0500> Subject: Re: [meteorite-list] To whom it may concern........> > Hello friends, I hope I'm not alone in feeling down after reading this.> While I don't know anything about the forces at work and haven't kept up> with any of the US Southwest issues, I feel lousy now, because here I've> been all along in the background enjoying every single hunting post Ruben> makes and his really nice web-page that he's work so hard with pride of his> work together with his son, and after I
