Where Are You?

Tell us where you are and you'll probably get recommendations for tanners that aren't all the way across the country. There are very good tanners all over the country, but it would make no sense to recommend a tanner in Florida if you are in Oregon. Shipping would kill you.

I live in Southwest Missouri about 18 miles from Springfield
