He was carrying it up, around, over and through boulders. Maybe 26 lbs, now that you mention it.

I once met a naked guy with a bike that weighed 6 lbs. (as I remember) in Redington Pass. He had ridden the high tech $7000 bike from Tucson and was carrying it through the terrain of boulders to get to a nice pool of water and a nice tan.

Was the nude hike advertised in all the publications of the run? That would spread the legitimacy of nude hiking in the minds of all who read it. Naked hiking is here. Wonderful PR.

All of this time, I've actually been DF. That guy in the pictures, he's okay. He is just concerned that if I came across as a woman, I'd be flirting back and forth. Gorgeous babe, eh?  ;D

So, where did you get that avatar pic John P.? The only usable nude pictures to steal on the internet all seem to be of women?

Anybody else want to come out of the internet nude transgender closet? :-X

SunnyDay! Dang! I remember SunnyDAy from when I first got online access. I remember reading it, liking it. It was some sort of a college student growing into being a nudist. It went on that they got married. I lost track about that time. I got suspicious that it was a male, but it was done so well.
So, I went to the website and I see that it is still going. She does yearly updates and there is a new forum that has several contributors. Still kicking! It has been nearly 20 years.

Maybe a female needs to impersonate a guy online, to avoid hassles?

Saw this thread. Got to thinking. Looked up pixelated swimwear and sure enough!
I like the prototype flesh bikini. Reminds me of our Halloween s costumes.

My ordeal in nearing an end. My mind is gathering the repressed wanderlust that I have craved. Summer is here and June is hot and dry. I remember places of water and grass. There will be wider ranging road trips, beginning sooner, or later. Your story makes me thirst.

What I've read alludes to more naturism than a morning bath. It has been quite a while since I dug into his and Emerson's, though a strong influence in my teens. Naked all summer, no. He had visitors, I don't think that he owned the property, the culture was pretty proper around him, it wasn't custom to be without clothes. Does a bear do it in the woods, when alone?

From Walden,"inhabitants of Tierra del Fuego" who went "naked with impunity, while the European shivers in his clothes" - model citizens of Thoreau's utopia of doing without. He dressed with economy and got hassled about it. He was looking at natural, and "Indian" ways. He had to have experimented without clothing and everybody is a naturist.

"Give me healthy senses, let me be thoroughly alive, and breathe freely in the very flood-tide of the living world." Could you imagine this guy getting up taking a breath, going down to "bathe" and then getting dressed, every time?

" April 9, 1841:The Indian...stands free and unconstrained in Nature, is her inhabitant and not her guest, and wears her easily and gracefully. But the civilized man has the habits of the house. His house is a prison."

"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away." Of course he tried naturist activities out, he experimented.

Me, just hitting the woods, getting disengaged, coasting, living and writing about the here and now. I might do that, but my own sense of it. On the road...some here some there. However, I have nothing that I need to escape, except the mandatory isolation from my senses and them in this incredible natural world.

So,"erratics" eh? Everyone knows that it was Paul Bunyan and Blue. Of course there are other tales of mularcky about a race of giants and even space peoples with beams of light that carry about big things.  ::)

Guess it takes more than a few millennia to take off those sharp edges.

John P., do you have a list of favorite lakes? That one looks to have some marshes making for bug pests. I remember mosquitoes coming out only toward the evening. Is that the way it works there?

Suns been out, we broke 100F for the first time yesterday, which was unusual, it's late. There are gambling pools about the time and date that we break that record. Kinda like when the ice breaks and flows in the spring.

Everything has dried up. Now, we wait for the monsoon rains.

Where you live, a warm poly tunnel would be a necessity for me, or I'd surely die.... 
Jbee :D

Is there camping anywhere around Walden Pond (A BIGass lake where I come from)? Wouldn't it be a great connection to wake a few mornings and "bathe" there from a tent. "Yea, Got it Henry. I'm living, today."

I am making time for my bucket list. I'm retiring so as to be able to roam freely...nude. I'm also getting better and better about my health, which will give me more years to get through the list. A list will adapt to reality. Old lists have been retooled and Jbee changes and evolves. The list will keep me going and keep my life full.

This is a different way of doing much of what I have been, implementing a situation which will help me keep on track things that I get distracted from and explore, explore, explore.

I'm not so sure about your "epicurean" comment. That is a new term and I have just done a quick look on the internet which was telling me that it isn't quite on the money, but maybe you're correct to pin that tag on.

Be mindful, be in the moment, keep it simple and basic. Write those things that have been put off, with less distraction. Spend days where a meal is an important time, exercise plans are daily, walks are free. Primitive experiences and experiments are set like creative toys in the woods (might make a primitive chair for example). Reflect, be natural, know nature and all that is camping out. A couple or more weeks at a time, like a summer house, and escape the summer's heat in Tucson. Where exercise is built into lifestyle. It is another consciousness and can be peaceful. I used to love spending time at my parents mountain summer home. This may be more my style, not a golf course, but natural. We'll see how DF takes to it, too.

Yes, and report on the experience. Is the sun out in your woods yet?
