Welcome jmf. I remember you well from SNS and I'm sure have seen references to you here.

Dave, there are some natural ways to mitigate that. Diet change, and some fasting regimen. Out there on the internet. A change in climate helps some people.

 "Truth about Fasting." Ty Bolinger accumulated several experts to create a series and addresses several issues including arthritis. Jus' sayin'...maybe.
Thanks Jb, I'll keep fasting in mind but wonder if I have the discipline needed for it.

Thanks for the warm welcome back John.

Have you been reading the forum or just not logging in at all?

I haven't logged in for some time.

Have you faded a bit?

I have a light tan - all over surprisingly as I haven't been naked in the sun for some time. It's been too hot to sunbathe in the communal garden a lot of the time too. In the old days I would have taken advantage of the cooler weather in the morning to sunbathe and walk in the countryside.

In relation to the gap in posts in this thread, it's a shame for me it's being neglected especially as the topic was originally my idea on the old Secret Naturist Society.

As you say I notice that a lot of the chat now is the "politics" (probably the wrong word) of naturism, which I'm not interested in so I wouldn't have much to contribute, but I'll probably continue to log in - I'd just got out of the habit.

My first post for a very long time! The best summer we've had in England since 1976 and it's come too late for me. My rheumatoid arthritis and irrtable bowel syndrome has made it difficult to cycle or walk very far resulting in very little naked time in nature. I've had to resort to wearing shorts in my communal garden. On the plus side I haven't needed to wear clothes at home - being a home naturist is better than nothing.

Why is there such a large gap in this thread between May 30 and July 25th?

On browsing the forum a notable absentee for me is Ian (milfmog). Is he still here?

While I can appreciate the discomfort of it being too hot, at least the weather is encouraging you not not to wear clothes and it's an advantage being a naturist. Too often it's the opposite in the UK. And most of the time you can take advantage of night time and early morning cooler temperatures.

When even 80F is considered extreme, it means it doesn't happen very often and it's got nowhere near that this year so far.

This is why I will always be envious of warmer climates and all that sun.

Sitting in the damp aftermath of a week of rainy spells and unseasonal coolness in what should be midsummer 'flaming June' in the UK, one is rather jealous of a climate that in poor weather makes you get naked and sit still to keep cool!

Couldn't agree more! A month that started off colder than Christmas day then had 6 days of warm sunny weather and since has had limited amounts of sunshine and downpours has me feeling angry, except I don't know who to blame. Maybe those stupid newspapers who every year seem to promise a sizzling summer. There's still time but I feel the last two months have mostly been wasted for my free range naturism.

Doesn't the saddle gradually work its way up one's bum crack and make it more uncomfortable to ride?

I've only ridden for short distances while completely naked, but that hasn't happened to me and I think unlikely to happen on a longer ride.

I also find on my own bike, fully clothed (with a wide padded saddle) that every now and again I have shifted into a position that puts pressure on the scrotum and its valuable contents! 

My problem is that I never know what to do with the testicles. I'm not comfortable with putting them on either side of the saddle and neither am I with resting them on the saddle. Perhaps it's something to do with the type of saddle I use. I actually prefer to wear a thong while riding a bike. In theory this would give me licence to cycle in more public places, if only it wouldn't cause a stir, especially at my age!

Nice report John (nuduke). It's good to see that your confidence is growing.

Alf! I'm another that is really pleased that you have found us. You have been missed.

Nice John. You've learnt, or at least put into practice, the fact that a bike can go where a vehicle can't and open country is often more suitable than woodland. I hope you get to spend longer periods of time there while feeling comfortably naked.

Sorry for the delay in replying.

Balead, when does summer break begin there?

If it is kids you might have more instances of this whenever they let out for the summer.

19-07 til 31-08. I'll worry about that at the time, but hopefully there will be no need to.

Could it have been someone checking to see if it was a homeless encampment? People don't like that around.

Well, if he expected it he didn't go far to check. Even if he had it doesn't look like one from what's there.

Hi Dave, brilliant to hear from you and I do hope that your new site will bring you the much needed input of solar energy and open air that I think you have been lacking for a couple of years or more.  Hopefully your little habitation in the brambles will become a refuge of pleasure and nakedness as in days of yore i.e. 2010ish and we'll get the weather for your enjoyment!
Thanks John. I arrived there the other day to find the things that I had left there had been disturbed, but nothing was taken, so obviously somebody had found my secret place, most likely a kid or kids. It won't stop me still using it. On another day as I left, I suspected that a man walking a dog had seen me leave. I hung around out of his sight to see if he if he followed it up. He looked in, but didn't go any further. You have to bend double to get in and then have to negotiate nettles and only partially cleared brambles. I'm hoping it will prevent most adults investigating further. 

Does it prevent you riding your bike? 
My legs get tired more quickly and I have to get off and walk up hills more than I used to, but it doesn't prevent me.


Great to learn that you are starting to come out of your naturist hibernation and that you have found a new spot that is so convenient. Not so good to hear about the arthritis though.

Hopefully, even if the sun and air cannot help with your condition physically the mental lift that sun on skin provides will improve your sense of well being.
Thanks Ian. I'm already feeling good about spending over 3 hours there in total on a completely sunny day today. It would have been more, but I have to be careful about burning after the poor early spring and not becoming gradually used to the sun. Lots more sun forecast for tomorrow. :)

Nothing was said about my chosen attire, though they did all have huge grins…

Here's hoping that new spot remains a secret and after the chair arrives just as pleasant as the old one.
Thanks Duane, I'm already leaving an inflatable mat there (and tools for further clearing) and using a container found there as a makeshift chair. I have to be careful about being seen entering and leaving as the area is well used by the public. If I stand up in my chosen location I can actually see people walking about. Using lines of sight, even if they noticed me they would only see my head and the top of my shoulders, but I'll be doing my best not to attract attention.

I know that a friend of ours raves about the therapeutic heat from her hot tub however she does complain that entry and exit is difficult with the arthritis. Perhaps a lounge chair would raise you off the ground enough to make life easier?
Yes it's more difficult than it should be, but hopefully it won't stop me doing it. Once the folding chair I have ordered has arrived, it will be taken and left there.

Anyway I'm sure the heat from the sun will do good, as much as it does for my mental status.
Yes, it will help mentally if nothing else.

Congratulations for finding a little piece of heaven on earth Balead!
Thank you. Hopefully it will remain undiscovered by others.


I don't know whether the heat from the sun will help as there hasn't been enough to find out yet. Ironically getting on the ground and getting up again is one of the difficulties my arthritis has caused.

Thanks for your good wishes.
