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

Finally last week we got some sunshine so I ventured out.
Great to be back out - you are hopefully a harbinger of better weather for us all.  Where is the lake relative to your home, Bob?  Was it deserted so you could be naked or were you walking in fits and starts to avoid being observed (if that bothers you at all, which I doubt).  What was your naked duration in the cold before either dressing or getting back in the car?

This lake is called Amber Lake.  Its not very big. You can see about 1/2 of the lake in the previously posted photo.  Amber lake is a fairly popular restricted fishing lake.  Restrictions include single line and hook, barb less hook, catch and release, etc.  This is the fishing access place belonging to the state parks and the fish and game departments.  Fishing season doesn't start until April so nobody is there in February.  It's about 10 miles from my home.  I drove there and back naked. It was still cold by the frozen lake so I was only outside for a relatively short while. 

While I was there I noticed that fish and game seems to have blocked the boat launch ramp with big rocks.  Not sure what that is about.  It is also obvious that some people have gone around the rocks and launched from the beach beside the concrete ramp.  Maybe they are restricting to smaller boats.  Big boats would need the concrete ramp.  Next time I'm there I'll take a picture of the boat launch ramp with the rocks.

Weather has been foul in our area - the rivers are running dangerously high and the ground remains saturated.  Many fields are flooded and thick mud (we have a heavy clay soil structure).  I did get out in the garden for a couple of chores last week as we did have some sunny intervals but it was cold with gusty wind.  Today I was working in the garage some and stocking up with logs in the fireplace later but I had to wear overalls, it was really chill.

We have also gotten a lot of rain this year, but less than average snow.  More snow than average in the surrounding mountains which is good.  Less here lower down which is also good.  The first of March is forecast to be in the 50s, about 10C or so.  I do a lot better when its over 50 and sunny.

This winter has been very cold.  Finally last week we got some sunshine so I ventured out.  It was about 40s (5C)  but the sun felt good.  The Lake still is ice covered.

I like to carry a basic first aid kit in my day pack.  My emergency kit includes small candle, fire starter, mini flashlight, small knife, and TP.

Even the "Ultra Processed Foods" are a big step better than the FAKE food we now are being sold.  So-called "Impossible burgers,"  "Beefless ground beef," and similar GMO ingredients mixed with toxic chemicals, various kinds of algae or bacteria, and almost nothing recognizable.

Our bodies are mostly composed of meat and animal fat. Eat what you are.  Natural and good.

It would be fun notification in a geocache container.

That it would.   I print card stock on my ink jet printer.

What do you put on your card?    Do you put your name and address like a normal business card?  Or do you simply put some wordage about Naked hiking?  I might try that.

One need not wear pants to have a pocket,

Traditional Scottish outfits with kilts and all often includes a pouch or "sporran" hanging on a belt.

So I should follow the advice of someone almost 15 years younger than me?

I'm never too old to learn.  I learned about carnivore way of eating from my youngest son who is almost 40 years younger.  I only wish I had the information available when I was his age.

So, where do you get your B-12? Do you eat liver for iron? Are you concerned about the polluted liver of factory farm animals? I used to eat kosher chopped liver, back when I was not doing as well while eating lots of meat. Jbee

Eating a carnivore diet you get plenty of B-12, iron, and omega-3 from the meat. It also turns out that most of what Vitamin C is used for is to digest plants, so very little is needed on a zero plant diet.

Carnivore people (like the above example I posted) don't get sunburned without using all the toxic chemicals. Healthy skin just takes care of it while making vitamin D.

Before and after quitting vegetables for an all carnivore diet.  Related to avoiding sunburn without chemicals.


From Ken Nelson

"Before and after shots of my progress with skin issues of eczema. Doctors couldnít help, only made it worse with their drugs that messed up my adrenal glands. I had this issue for years and life was Hell at times.

"The Carnivore diet cured me and got my life back. I will never eat plant based so-called foods again.

"Iím 60 now and all my joint pain has gone as well and I feel great. I'm even back inline skating twice a week and my knees never better.

"There really is nothing better than being the best 'you'.

"Being Carnivore has enabled me to get back in the gym after suffering with forearm tendonitis and joint pain for years.

"Among a host of other things."

I have always carried a small backpack.  It has room for water, lunch, shorts, and even a towel.  Zipper side pockets hold first aid/emergency kit, car keys, etc.  I often carry it slung over one shoulder, not both, and often on the shady side to prevent tan lines.

I'll stick with mostly live living food, personally, mostly veggies. We can adapt to radical eating and even thrive for a while, we survived that way. Long term, I think some variety is the spice of life. Jbee

I do hope you fully recover from your year long illnesses.   Be well my friend.

Large numbers of Indians, at least those who are Hindus, are vegetarians. However, the reasoning behind that is ethical, rather than because of medical reasons (as opposed to nutritional reasons).

I suspect few of them utilize sunscreen, though.

India has the highest rate of death from Cardiovascular disease compared to any other country.  They also have perhaps the highest percentage of vegetarians.  There is a strong correlation.

Indian people have a darker color skin typical of all those who have lived in low latitudes so they don't need sunscreen.

I am going to share this even though it comes from Facebook.  Similar stories are posted every day on the Carnivore FB groups. One could argue that its anecdotal, but its real people who have amazing health improvements from eating a healthy diet.  This person previously suffered from serious heart problems and bad digention troubles.  Gone.

So a dear friend shared this page with me a few months ago, I was super skeptical about trying the diet because I have heart failure and several heart related complications and crohns but I did it finally. Three weeks in and I am officially off of all blood pressure meds, and anti platelets, my abdominal issues are gone and my cholesterol has actually decreased. I feel better than I have in 25 years! Thank you Hardus Bruwer for sharing this life changing experience with me! I owe you my life!

One of the best discourses about diet, meaning simply what you eat, that I've read was written by Horace Kephart just about a hundred years ago. And that was before most of the genetically modified, fortified, highly refined food we have today, although canned foods were available and there was no real inspection of food like there is supposed to be today.

Yes, a lot of good information gets ignored.

Medical literature published in 1796 said that not eating carbs or sugar would prevent diabetes, but that was mostly ignored, and was completely ignored after the 1920s when doctors discovered they could make a fortune selling artificial insulin.  Now we have a diabetes epidemic affecting close to 1/4 of the population and still they recommend a carb and sugar diet.
