What's the favoured sunblock? I've been using an oil free 'water proof'
spf 30 that seems ok on my face legs and arms but not so good on the
back of the neck and shoulders when wearing a sleeveless shirt. Eitehr
I'm not getting good coverage or I need something stronger.

I use Kinesys spf 30. It's a spray that is oil free, alcohol free
and "water and sweat resistant". I use 45 (of whichever brand I can
find a 45 for) on my nose and the back of my neck and that seems to
work for me.

I use just any old cheap sunblock that I can find that is SPF 30 or above. I
understand that SPF 30 is about as high as sunblock really works anyway. If
you have problems in an area, you might carry some and reapply every now and
then or just put more on the trouble spots initially. But SPF 30 does well for
me in Orlando FL. I am out up to 4 hours in the summer, of course, that is in
the morning when it is still "cool".

Another vote for BullFrog Gel.
I used the quick dry spray on a 7 day tour last month. It was sunny every
day. I didn't burn anywhere.
Plus, I have thinning hair and it's easy to spray this stuff right through
your thinning hair -- much easier than
a cream sunblock.

Yet another vote for Bullfrog! SuperBlock SPF45. I'm on the Nevada high
desert and with intense sun and triple digit temps, it's the only thing
that saves my hide.

Thanx all. I'm thinking it might just be that I don't get good coverage
on my nexk, back and shoulders - not being a contortionist of note.
