Hi WeisserWolf81!
Don't worry about having English as a secondary language - Your english is probably more than good enough to add to our discussions and (like Jbee) my German is almost zero.  Please feel free to join in any of the post threads.
Translation is so easy to get these days - Google translate is pretty good, free and available easily for all.  So if you can't find the English word or words just give us the German version and we'll translate it ourselves (or add a translation yourself).  I think JMF uses translation a lot but although his English is good, I think he writes in French on his personal blog Randonnues and adds an English translation which is usually a good one.
Is that what you do JMF?
Machen Sie sich keine Sorgen, Englisch als Zweitsprache zu haben - Ihr Englisch ist wahrscheinlich mehr als gut genug, um zu unseren Diskussionen beizutragen, und (wie Jbee) ist mein Deutsch fast Null.  Bitte zögern Sie nicht, an einem der Post-Threads teilzunehmen.
Übersetzungen sind heutzutage so einfach zu bekommen - Google Translate ist ziemlich gut, kostenlos und für alle leicht verfügbar.  Wenn Sie also das englische Wort oder die englischen Wörter nicht finden können, geben Sie uns einfach die deutsche Version und wir übersetzen sie selbst (oder fügen Sie selbst eine Übersetzung hinzu).  Ich denke, JMF verwendet viel Übersetzung, aber obwohl sein Englisch gut ist, denke ich, dass er auf Französisch auf seinem persönlichen Blog Randonnues schreibt und eine englische Übersetzung hinzufügt, die normalerweise eine gute ist.  Ist es das, was Sie JMF tun?

...Siehe!  Es ist ganz einfach!
See! it's easy

I just discovered that a main protagonist of the Carnivore Diet is called Paul SALADino!!!  ;D ;D ;D :o
I read you can have milk and yogurt on the Carnivore Diet.  Is bread allowed? I guess not because it is plant derived and is a carb.  Is that right, Bob?
With eating all meat don't you occasionally crave a nice roast beef sandwich?

Your wonderment at the green, moist land you are hiking through id quite palpable, Jbee.
But that forest looks like many a forest you might walk through in the UK.  The difference being that there are few forests in the Uk that you could walk through for a whole day.  Except for a very few areas the maximum you might manage is a couple of hours!  Nor do we have  Hemlock forest.  Beautiful country you hiked through, none the less.  If you ever come to Britain, I can walk you through similar terrain only 20 mins drive from our house albeit that 1-2 hrs walk does the whole perimeter!  As you know I would love to sample the Arizona aridity that is your norm because that's opposite to my normal terrain! :)

Thanks for the carnivore tribe info, a few posts ago, Bob.
Happily whilst I drink both beer and wine, I drink very little.  One or less alcoholic drinks per week is about average for me and the Mrs.  Shame really, it's an easy source of carbs to cut down.  Part of my problem is snacking.  I'm often to be seen nibbling the odd nut, a breadstick or a few grapes or whatever.  I try not to do this but I seem to be compulsively drawn to additional input.  I do like a biscuit with a cup of tea (very British pursuit!) but I have stopped this habit because biscuits are a) compulsively moreish and b) extremely calorific.  I sometimes have a breakfast cereal bar for breakfast but that is about OK for breakfast calorie intake (about 200 cals).
Do 'snacks' exist in the carnivore diet, Bob?
PS F&C, we haven't 'hijacked' the post - that would imply malice aforethought.  The topic has just lazily drifted as each post sparks new thoughts in others as our topics often do! As my wife says when the conversation drifts, "It's a conversation not a lecture" :D

Free Range Naturism / Re: The Secret Naturist Handbook

When I was a lad my family went out on country drives and walks at weekends and seeing a bird of prey hovering before a dive was an utter rarity.  Nowadays we see them often in the field behind our house and frequently when travelling up the dual carriageways and motorways of this fair land.  It is my theory that the tree margins and banks planted along the sides of motorways and dual carriageways (for the Americans, a dual carriageway is a road with usually 2 lanes in each direction separated by a central reservation or barrier) have created woodland-like habitats frequented by small mammals and birds that are the prey of raptors such as the red kite, kestrel, harrier, owl and buzzard. This has led to a flourishing of those birds of prey (BOP) such that they are much more common than when I was a youngster.  I have no idea if this is right or wrong, just my own surmise, and I do recall that BOPs have recovered since the banning of organochlorine pesticides such as DDT so there's another effect.  I dare say the raptors are eating other species that have taken a dive as a result.

Anyone got any better knowledge that may enlighten us on this one?
.....I found this

What made you decide to reduce the old avoirdupois in the first place, Bob, and how long has it taken you to get from the large and imposing figure you were to the much more slender figure we see today?
I echo Jbee - you are looking good on it - if a tad less imposing perhaps! :D
Many questions accumulate....
Can you share a link to learn about this carnivore diet, please?
I bet it costs a lot - decent meat is very pricey in the UK.
Do you roast a lot?  How do you take all this meat?  Can you have the occasional sandwich?  Doesn't it give you outrageous constipation? Does "meat" include chicken and fish?
Tell us more - at least I am interested.

I am feeling rather depressed at present as I too lost a lot of weight between summer 2020 and 2021 by rigorous and laborious calorie counting but with one thing and another, since about July/August, when I slackened off my rigorous and very arduous regime, I have started putting the pounds on again and have regressed back to where I was about in January.  Its so difficult to lose a pound and so easy to put  2 back on!

Welcome to the forum, iHateClothes.  Yes, you will get to know us here.  The trick is to join in the conversations (which are admittedly a bit sparse just at the moment!).
Most of the people that talk on this forum are how can I put this...a few years ahead of you in age! :) so it would be great to hear you chiming in with the voice of (relative) youth.  We range around many subjects here which usually spring out of naturist topics, thoughts and observations but we often digress all over the place which keeps the conversation fresh.

It would be really interesting to hear what naturist activity you get up to.  Are you, like many of us here, a naked hiker? 
What was your journey to discovery of the wonderful freedom and practice of naturism/nudism? 
Look forward to chatting! :)

Free Range Naturism / Re: How was your month for Free Range Naturism?

Were you all wearing scary costume/accessories & stuff at the club party, F&C?  One might imagine a naturist Halloween party is the same as any other naturist party as costumes are not really a part of the naturist canon! :)  I guess scary food is OK. Oh yes!...  and scary body painting.

Now there's an existentialist nude philosophical question.....Does body paint equal being clothed?  And if you paint clothing on your body are you still naked? :D :D

Gosh! No unread items today (Sat 30/10)! 
Are we all off for a weekend hike?
I've got no monthly news - been a remarkably textile fortnight or 3 weeks as have been all over the place with non-naturist stuff.
Looking forward to hearing from some of you soon.  I'll try and get clothes off asap!! :D

Well, NudistMetalHead,
Depends on your perspective - we do often stray into diverse topics within any particular stream of naturist topic posting but the fact that mostly this forum is about free range naturism keeps us together in fact, I feel. 
If we strayed off and sprayed out into all manner of topics - music, cinema, news commentary and whatnot, then what makes it attractive and worth participating for members of our special interest group if the special interest is diluted and submerged by the many, many other possible topics that we could talk about?  I strongly disagree that just sticking to naturism in nature topics is repetitive or tedious.  This is the proclivity we all share and from personal experience of corresponding for almost 15 years and being amongst those who have also been doing so for that long - and often much longer - the evidence is clear that it doesn't get tedious (even though we repeat ourselves sometimes - that just has the effect of reawakening interest and reinvigorating conversation).
There are forums and other social media galore for any subject - music and cinema, woodwork, chess or whatever - surely a better experience can be had there for those subjects.  Also remember that we are here by courtesy of Stuart and Karla who started the website and forum with the express purpose of talking about free range naturism particularly.  I wouldn't want to pollute their excellent and noble intentions by taking up the forum with other topics (we may get closed down).
There are naturist sites such as Naturist Corner or Nu et Hereux where the conversation is wider ranging -  you may, like a lot of us here, want to join a second or third discussion site.
However, if a topic stream triggers your thoughts about something else arising from that topic then feel free to share those thoughts whether naturist related or not!  We often do and we often chime in together for a while on some non naturist digression that arises from a naturist post initially.

What a truly great exhibition of fellowship in naturism.  Does the heart glad to see it all.  Wonderful report, Jbee and photos that seemed to capture the spirit of the day. 

Did Dan hike the whole way barefoot?  Was the final photo at the end of the trail accurate in depicting him barefoot or had he just taken the boots off to cool the feet?  If he did that's truly magnificent given the very mixed terrain.

Yes I very much agree with Bob and Jbee,
So often we aren't truly naked outdoors - walking shoes, sandals, vibrams, backpacks, hats, gardening gloves and even glasses to me are not quite naked enough.  If I'm out on a walk or in the garden with shoes (rarely wear shoes anywhere at home these days) I will take the shoes off and drop anything else I'm wearing or carrying to have at the very least least a short time totally naked, completely unencumbered by any of the trappings of society or textilism. 
The Naked Rambler - Steve Gough was rarely naked in these terms.  He wore big boots, big hat and a backpack that fastened round the front in a wide sash with sundry things dangling down so you saw little but legs and shoulders when he walked along and according to the documentary made about him, he got dressed at the end of a day's walking (mainly to keep warm in his tent).
Same goes for JMF - pics of him are often in boots and backpack although he does get completely naked a lot (at least in his pictures).
Jbee and DF are often depicted with something draped over the neck and shoulders, footwear and packs of various sorts.
It's actually quite difficult to be completely naked when you hike as you need stuff along with you for basic needs and safety (eg water).
On the other hand Jbee, DF, and JMF find many and many a location and time to be completely unencumbered by any covering.

General Naturism Discussion / Re: Nudity as Carnival
« on: October 24, 2021, 09:34:10 PM »
I was in the presence of one of Prince Philip's witticisms once back in the 1970s!
I was in a small crowd that had gathered in a private location that was hosting lunch for some event that the Queen and Prince Philip were attending.  The royal party and retinue of 20 or 30 people approached down a long gravel path with around 50-100 observers lined behind a rope barrier about 10 or 20 yards separated.  The gentleman standing next to me with his family was taking pictures with an SLR camera with a telephoto lens. Suddenly the prince veered off from the procession and bounded over to the photographer.  "Good morning," said the Duke to the man, "you must be an American.  Are you?"
"Why yes," said the man, completely nonplussed by this piece of royal clairvoyance "How ever did you know that, your royal highness?" he asked evidently quite overawed by the Prince's erudition.
"Oh, it was easy," said Philip, "I could tell by the size of your camera!"  and after a short stunned silence all in the vicinity laughed politely in response to this leaden joke. 
There followed actually a short conversation between the two men about f. stops and focal lengths which indicated that the royal had a fair knowledge of photography.  This interruption to the progress to lunch had stopped the royal party including the Queen and after a minute or two she also broke off from the procession and took a few steps towards us and in a distinctly irritated 'stage whisper' voice hissed at her husband "Philip!  Do come on. You are keeping everyone waiting!"   The Prince instantly complied apologising briefly to his interlocutor for the curtailment of their discussion as he turned and disappeared with her majesty through an archway!
