Absolutely, JOhn!
Just be cause we are naked does not mean we are savages or uncivilised!

Wow, a 30 year younger Bob!
That's really nice and also amusing.  So thebig moustache of then morphed into the grey beard of now!  The Bob physique of today pictured in embryo.
I can't quite explain why, but it gives me a warm feeling to see the formidable and substantial Bob we see pictured today, behatted, bebearded, solitary and stern-faced shown in the light of history, as the family man still a naturist but, none the less, the embryo of the Bob to come! :D
Really good pics, Bob.  Thank you so much for posting that little insight for us.

Yes, Davie
I have read up on wild swimming being as I'd like to do some sometime, and it is a technique one has to adopt.  Care is needed to be aware of cold and the physiological effects such as gasping when one first plunges in.  Many wild swimming sources just don't even entertain wearing a normal costume (and, of course, none advocate nudity that I have read), they say you need a wet suit. Deep quarries are another danger to be aware of.  I am not a strong enough swimmer to brave any situation so like you, I would need to look for somewhere with a firm bottom and a shallower drift to enter the water.  I have never acquired the nack of diving so again that tends to determine the sort of environs that might offer a swimming place.
I think I need to do more a bit more research to see if I can find places for next spring or summer.
There was a great one off BBC4 TV programme a few years ago where Dr Alice Roberts learned to wild swim and eventually swam nude in a moorland tarn.

Les Grottes sont tres belles et, quand les explorateurs sont en nués, elles sont formidable!,

Quote from: eyesup
My 1st CO visit was a personal achievement!
That's good to hear, Duane.  I think of you as an enormously experienced FR Naturist but of course I forget that you are an SN i.e. a lone hiker 99% of the time.  So it's surprising and gratifying to hear of your 'learning curve' in a social CO context.  And a good thing it was positive.
My experience over many years, albeit relatively infrequently as a FR / SN Naturist has been peppered here and there with social naturism experiences, visiting a few CO clubs and Abbey House and recently the swim I reported a few weeks ago.  So I have become comfortable in CO /Social Naturism circumstances and can report from memory and more recent experience that it doesn't take long to settle down to the normality of these situations when/where they occur.  I wish, however that my horizons could be wider from the little woodland and field worlds that I have occupied hitherto and that I had easy to find, deserted locations to walk in where the weather is clement and the terrain stunning - like you and Jbee.

Nice report, Duane
We haven't had one from you in a bit.
I wish we had some places like that in the uk!

How do you find suitable wild swimming places, W. Mike?

Blimey!  Over 2 weeks since I last posted.  Sorry regulars, I been busy, busy!
We are now entering Autumn so nude activity will decrease as per every year.
I hope to be able to visit the swim I described a few weeks back a few more times and guess what - Yeldew is a regular there!
We hope to meet up in a few weeks when I can next get there.

Great!  More meet ups in the offing!
PS Daniel, not everyone on this forum is called John! :D

Yeah, Jbee,
Easy to see that a bit of luxury and relaxation makes a fitting change to the usual rugged outdoor trips and a very nice birthday treat.
Wish DF a very happy birthday from me and (forum name) Mrs N... albeit a little in retrospect!

Nice day out, it seems natureboy.

There are often clothed visitors that wander up to see the cliffs and the butts.

Don't you mean Buttes?  Or maybe not if it's a naturist beach!  :D

Thanks for those words of illumination, Jbee
Interesting to hear that you encounter other hikers so frequently and the distances seem less than I imagined.  I had supposed that you might walk 15-20 miles often.  It's sort of comforting that the distances are somewhat shorter.

As to insurance, JOhn, I agree. Its best when it's money for nothing.  If you don't claim it means everything's Ok!

I just had a look at your book and recalled some of the pictures that you posted on TSNS a few years ago and particularly the breath-taking beauty of some of the mountain top locations and rugged countryside that you hiked to.  Thank you once again for sharing your fabulous work.

Et maintenant en francais avec reconnaissance
Google Translate:
Je viens de jeter un coup d’œil à votre livre et de rappeler certaines des photos que vous avez postées sur TSNS, en particulier la beauté à couper le souffle de certains des sites montagneux et de la campagne accidentée dans laquelle vous avez marché. Merci encore d'avoir partagé votre fabuleux travail.

Nice report, Jaybirdsen
Yes!  Do the research on attaching pictures!  It's not easy.  I myself have had endless trouble trying to attach a picture that doesn't act as a link through to my photo repository.  I don't want everyone dabbling in my albums!  Embedding is the route to go.  This works for me sometimes and not others.  Can't think why.  I've tried putting my pictures on flickr but either the pictures link through to my flickr site or after adjusting the privacy settings they are so private that nobody can see them!  If I post a picture nowadays it's an embed from a MS Onedrive repository of pictures.
