Oh, relief, I thought that was the oncoming train!

It would have to be a road train if it was! They haven't got that far yet, thank goodness.

What area is in? Is it remote or in a more developed area? I would think that it would be on some historic preservation list.

This is in the English Midlands in a quiet rural area with a low population density. However, there are fairly large towns about 8 miles north and south and this is a popular footpath and cycle track connecting them. I hardly saw anybody when I was there 10 or so years ago, but there are more people about now, especially at weekends.
I ran into the side of the tunnel while riding through a particularly dark section. Humans have little to no proximity sense in the dark. I ended up with a scraped right arm.

I'm glad it's not just me who has trouble keeping my balance in this situation. I thought being able to see daylight at the end of the tunnel would serve as a reference point, but it didn't. It was too small and too distant.

For Duane and John and everyone else, here are my tunnel photos. The first one shows the entrance. It only carried a single railway track and so was fairly narrow. The pale spot in the centre is the daylight at the end of the tunnel.

The second is standing inside under a ventilation shaft. Looking up it, you can see daylight about 50 feet up, although not clearly as there is a chimney on top. The bright flashes on the walls are reflectors which show up in the light of a torch or cycle lamp. It is very dark inside and without a point of reference, it is very easy to walk or cycle into the side of the tunnel, especially when cycling. You cannot see enough to keep your balance without a light.

I think I may have some more photos taken around here, I will try to find them.

I have found the photos I think John was referring to, so I will try posting one here. If it works (thanks Ian) I will post a few more including the tunnel. This is a view of a bridge over an abandoned railway in the English Midlands. The track I am sitting beside has been converted into a footpath and cycle track. This was taken a few years ago but still looks much the same today.

You're still young, Larry! Wish I was only 63, I'll be 70 next year. I can still remember that!

Yes John, I am still here. I took those photos some years ago, I will try to dig them out. Then I will have to set up a Flickr account so I can post them here. I haven't been to those tunnels for a while now. Now you have reminded me, I will have to go there again, it is a good place to get naked, but not at weekends. Far too many people and cyclists go there now.

Free Range Naturism / Re: Cleanliness is next to free range-ness

999 is the number to call in the UK in an emergency for police, fire, ambulance or coastguard. This would seem to be inappropriate in this case for 3 naked men doing nothing harmful or about to do something nasty. The security guard should have known better, he was probably bored on a quiet Sunday morning.

I agree entirely Ian, I see no reason why this shouldn't be our new permanent home.

I also agree. It is fine for messages and I am sure we can find a way to include photos without using a lot of bandwidth. It is still early days for us here and new software always takes a bit of time to get used to.

Good to hear from you again, Dave. Like you, I think freerange is probably a better description of the naturism I do, although it is also mostly secret. We come back to the old question of a definition again!

Like you, John, I also have seborrhoeic warts! These developed on my arms a few years ago and I saw the dermatologist in the local hospital about them, and he assured me they were nothing to worry about. They used to be called senile warts because they are very common in the elderly, but this name has been dropped because some people were offended by it.

I think these little red spots I see now may be the start of more of them. I was given an information sheet about moles and how to recognise melanoma and for now I am glad to say that none of them look like melanoma. I am trying to avoid getting sunburn to avoid any problems by keeping to shady locations or going out early or late in the day.

The last Windows system I used was XP. When I decided to move from this about 2 years ago when it was no longer supported, I changed to Mac and have not looked back since. I had been unhappy for some time about the way some things in Windows worked and thought I would have a complete change, and I must say I have found it to be a much more user-friendly system and much better to use. In a way I have gone in a complete circle as the first computer I used was an Apple Macintosh at work in the late 80s.

I am sure we can survive on this site but a big attraction of the old site was the ability to post photos. They add so much more to reports, especially ones like jbee used to post. I wonder if the increase in traffic on this forum is causing any bandwidth problems for Stuart and Karla.

I think it's just ageing, your body is less able to respond to external attacks whether it be sun or viruses or whatever as you get older. I develop tiny red spots which slowly get a bit bigger then turn brown. Most of them then just disappear but a few develop into harmless moles. I am worried that these may develop into melanoma so I am limiting my exposure to the sun. I can walk in shaded woods but I do enjoy feeling the warm sun on my body.

I have used sun cream from time to time but it doesn't appear to stop the reaction of my skin to the sun. I do not really like using sun cream. It always leaves the skin greasy and it makes me feel unclean, and it also makes dust and small flies stick to the skin. I don't know what the answer is.

Greetings to friends old and new from Nudey (Tony), another member from the old tsns site. I have liked to get naked outside in the country since I was young. My parents had a large garden at their house in the country, and I always liked to strip off and go naked whenever they were not around. I have continued this love of being naked in the countryside ever since, preferring the free range/secret style rather than in landed clubs. I was a member of BN for a few years but I was not really interested in their activities, and I have never visited a naturist club. I much prefer walking naked and I have been on a number of the walks organised by the SOC in the UK. I haven't done so much recently, one of the reasons being my skin appears to be more sensitive to the sun now I am older and I can't take so much as I used to. I do still get out naked in local woods where there is some shade but not for as long as before. I look forward to catching up with posts from other ex-tsns friends.

Tony
