General Naturism Discussion / Re: Tolerance to the weather
« on: March 05, 2018, 06:02:25 PM »

Well, I like it warm but as I've posted usually in How was your month for FRN thread, I have been 'dipping in' to the freezing weather in the night garden over winter.  I haven't done any 'tolerance trials'  - I usually go out for a minute to a few minutes just to see how my body reacts.  However I reckon half an hour in 32 - 25
deg F would be possible if you were occupied with something fairly physical so as not to notice the cold so much and generate some internal warmth.  Making a snowman would be hard because you get a lot of snow on the hands and body and this becomes painful and sucks heat out of the sensitive outer skin layer.

One thing I am sure of is that endurance and indeed sensual pleasure from being nude in the cold is greatly assisted by dry, frosty and very cold, still weather.  A breeze is always chilling and on a damp night with high humidity the experience is not so nice.
Oh Alf !  Where are you?  You would be able to comment no doubt, living in Canada but you are gone from our midst, o sage.
And Ian Milfmog - your secluded garden has no doubt led you to be out in the cold and early morning walks with Taz in the past have happened in all weathers, winter frost being one.  Where are you, matey?  Make comment please.
Also JOhn - there must be something in your vast range that informs the endurance to cold question.
With nostalgia :'(

Fighting talk there, Ric!
Your points are valid, just needs a polish of assertiveness (as they always taught in management communication courses when I was on them!)
JBee wordsmith - your witness!

Quote from: BlueTrain
I have been seen nude (as well as naked) a few times[/l]

Interesting brackets there, Blue train.  Does that indicate a dislike of the word naked or perhaps, put better, a preference for nude as the appropriate term meaning without clothes?  I notice you use nude/nudity in the rest of your posts in this thread.  Do you make a distinction in meaning or nuance between naked and nude?
I ask this seemingly pedantic semantic question because back in the 'mists of time' we had a longish debate
on what Duane terms 'ye olde site' (that is TSNS The Secret Naturist Society) about which of the 'N' words we preferred and drew in critical assessment of terms such as Skyclad. 
That was a bit of fun, but what did emerge was that some people had very strong preferences one way or the other.  The main opinion was that naked had connotations of exposed and helpess whereas nude was just a more neutral description.
Time to revisit the subject perhaps?  Do you have any views either way, Blue Train?

Just be happy, be as healthy as you can, just relax & be naturally naked.
Well said, Patrick1951.
Would you come and see if you can convince my wife? :)
And JBee - what a heartwarming story of your teen shower!

Are you keeping up Steve and Denise?

I have a haircut about 3 or 4 times a year - it just gets too unruly otherwise and I waste more time organising it to face civilisation than is worth it not to have a cut!  It's got a very strong wave in it and that isn't really conducive to 'long'.  More 'heap'
At the moment I'm going for a mullet!  Problem is my hair sort of rolls up at the back and I can't get it long without months of 'training' it.
I agree with Duane, the less time spent bothering with such fripperies and fal-lals the better!

Note the curious appearance of bracketed code on my posts.  This keeps happening and uncontrollable font changes.  Last few weeks I have spent ages cleaning up messages to take out all those random bb code appearances.  What the H*** causes it?

[font=]weve got about six inches this morning,  could be 2 or 3 years before we see any more,  this much is maybe a 1 in 15 year event.[/font]

Well! St David has brought us a foot of snow in darkest Lincs. Everything cancelled. Nervous phone calls coming in about what to do about tomorrow's events. Takes 45 min to get the car out etc. Almost all trAins cancelled....

Snow is beautiful and fun for an hour.  When you consider what tedious inconvenience it causes, danger to the vulnerable, cost in damage, lost trade and inability to move around freely, it's a curse.
Harumph! Thank goodness my schedule is quiet these last few days. But I have to get a train to London Sunday to meet someone who is arriving from afar via Heathrow (Uk's main airport).  What are the chances of that being a fool's errand!  High!!

Free Range Naturism / Snow Angel

 Guys, it was snowy early this morning and I had a little adventure.
We are having a pretty bad spell of snow in the UK and our area was not spared the frozen white inconvenience. As luck would have it the thing I was due to attend this morning was cancelled by 8.30 ish so I had a free day. "Right!" said I to wifey "you don't get many chances for a snow angel! Life's too short - I'm off to play in the snow!" So I fiddled around with my cellphone, propping it up in an upstairs window so I got an aerial view, started the video, went downstairs into the garden and made a lovely snow angel naked (that's me not the angel) in about -5deg c (23 deg F). Unfortunately I don't seem to be able to post the video without giving the world access to my photo store so here are some video frames. First the long view. The blue circle was a tuft of grass where I was to aim for to get in the centre of the video but I misjudged tufts and ended up at the edge of the picture

Next the angel moment - I clipped a frame from the video and zoomed it in at its climax whilst I was angel-ing!  Sorry only half of me in frame (quite enough some might say!).

I was overjoyed to have done this - it has been a smaller item on life's bucket list. I have to say that I've played naked in the snow before but there wasn't enough for an angel so this time on the soft grass it was ideal.

It was cold! I didn't feel shivery at all but the pain of the snow on my skin glowed for some time after I got inside again. Having made my contribution to snow art, I went upstairs clad in dressing gown (US=bathrobe) and announced I had achieved my little ambition. "Did you do it naked!" said Mrs N with obviously the shock of realisation that had not occurred to her before. "Of course" I smiled. "Let me have a look then", she said rising from bed and heading for the appropriate bedroom window. Thinking quickly I said "I'll show you" and dashed downstairs and out into the garden naked and pointed it out with a little dance in the snow. I could hear her objecting through closed double glazed windows! So I made a snowball and threw it at the window. She smiled and saw the fun of it really.

Then she decided to make a snowman. She dressed in several layers, hat, boots etc etc and tramped into the garden and started rolling snow. "Coming to help!" I shouted and once again leapt into the garden naked. She was not amused and asked me to go in after only a minute or so.  "I'm not cold" I said (lying!). "I don't care, she said - I hate you being naked like that."

So I went in, put on overalls and boots and a coat and we had a few laughs at our very unsuccessful snowman building effort as the snow was unusually powdery and not adherent at all.  Eventually she got a dwarf snowman constructed and after the obligatory photos we went in for breakfast before which I had a brief but hot shower to warm up.

Not as involved as JBee and DF's exploits but we had a little fun nevertheless and I got a bit more outdoor naked fun than I expected!

It's nice to have you here, Blue train!
Hope you find us a fun bunch.  Quite a few of us are retired gents like yourself and all enjoy naked hiking.
Have a browse round and do, do contribute freely.  Lots of topics diverge off into discussions and we like to hear from people in the course of the conversation.  Some of us have been chatting for years and some for just minutes but we hope you will enjoy being here!

Its amazing the power of clothing, isn't it?
I watched a fair bit of your hiking videos hatless (? mostly) and saw the usual JOhn nude brown man with a bit of a limp and a determined air as he hikes.  But in the static pic at the end you were wearing a panama hat which makes you look rather distinguished, I felt! 

That observation was triggered by my own ingrained reactions to a panama hat and I immediately attributed the trait to you wearing it!  It was just that one piece of clothing that triggered the reaction of pidgeon-holing my impression of that photo.  So much for my open minded boasts!
Er...That's not to say, however, JOhn, that you didn't look good in the hat! :)
