I don't know if this counts, but...I made a huge mistake when I had a booth at a craft expo this summer.  It was outdoors in the GA summer sun, but I thought that by staying under a store bought "sun shelter" that I would be protected from the sun.  The result was the worst sunburn I've ever had.  It didn't look like I even sat in the shade.  I know that those things are pretty popular for craft fairs (at least around here!) and maybe I'm the only one dumb enough to have done this, but I just wanted to pass along the advice.  Definitely wear sunscreen!

(grimace) I can understand.  is just as bad in a tent.

they do sell a UV blocking spray for tents though (but be hanged if I can remember a brand name or where I saw it last.)  A couple years ago Lance got a can and sprayed the bejessus out of the top rain fly of our main camping tent after a blister burn incident I had when trying to sleep off a migraine.  We haven't had trouble since (mind we've been camping six times and plunked the tent under *trees* every time) so it may be worth hunting up.

no clue what it cost, Lance refused to tell me at the time and now doesn't remember (he thinks it was "expensive" but to him $30 a can is cheap compared to me having to deal with nine hours in a emergency room waiting room and being called stupid for not sunscreening [in a tent in the shade] and not taking my medicine [which the doctor refuses to perscribe because it's "dangerous"] and after the $1200 bill and twenty hours of pain and humiliation, $30 IS cheap)
