Free Range Naturism / Re: How was your month for Free Range Naturism?
« on: October 13, 2019, 09:01:01 PM »

I was at a party on Saturday night on my own because my wife was away at a conference.  I drove home about 12.20am and throughout the 20 min journey, I longed to be naked.  I got home, stripped off immediately in the hall and went outside and sat on the dew damp grass and enjoyed the cool air and the damp night!  I felt better.

That is as much like Eden as I can imagine.  Arcadian freedom, calm and communion with nature.
A particularly lovely report.
Your skeletal problems, Jbee must be something other than knee or femoral joint based of you can do the half lotus so effectively and (presumably) sit there comfortably for a while.

Gosh you have been very active recently JMF!
Great.  I love those many pictures of you at the top of some mountain or other taking in the spectacular views.  To see a view like that in the UK is rare.
I always look forward to your blogs.

It is also very helpful and kind that you provide english translations, so thank you for that.  However, there are sometimes some funny errors such as
"we get dressed up succinctly" for "on se rhabille sommairement".  Did you mean 'nous nous habillons rapidement'?

John

I hope this is an OK translation of the above post
Gosh, vous avez été très actif récemment JMF!
Génial.  J'aime ces nombreuses photos de vous au sommet d'une montagne ou d'autres en prenant dans les vues spectaculaires.  Voir une telle vue au Royaume-Uni est rare.  J'ai toujours hâte de vos blogs.

Il est également très utile et gentil que vous fournissez des traductions en anglais, alors merci pour cela.  Cependant, il y a parfois quelques erreurs drôles telles que «we get dressed up succinctly» pour «on se rhabille sommairement».  Voulais tu dire, peut etre «nous habillons rapidement» ?

Free Range Naturism / Re: The Secret Naturist Handbook

Was it Lookie or Corbie that wrote the handbook, Jbee?
This last post indicates a level of caution and secrecy that that I had forgotten about in the TSNS Community.  The author was obviously a wee bit paranoid about being discovered.  I am happy to say that, these days I am much more relaxed about my SN (and yes, I am not shy of using the term) but I do still always exercise some of the cautions that the Keeping Secrets page articulates.

Well, I am back, if anyone noticed my unaccustomed absence over the last 3 and a bit weeks.  Been on holiday, very sporadic wifi. 
No nudity whatsoever outside the bedroom since 10th Sept.

When we set out on holiday, the UK weather was end of summer sunny & nice.  It's now damp, chill and rainy autumn, cool in the house too (heating on) and getting dark at about 18.30.  Hey ho, winter drawers on.  The annual naturist hibernation will start soon!


Our holiday was in Egypt where daytime temperatures were typically 35 deg C and reached 40-42 deg C.  Exploring tombs and temples in this heat, I have discovered, albeit that I have always maintained that I like hot climates, that in this level of heat I am very prone to heat exhaustion (HE).  Despite glugging lots of water or rehydration drinks constantly, I experienced it twice during the holiday and had to miss one day's trip out.  I also got very bad diarrhoea too (Pharaoh's Revenge).


This tendency to HE came as a surprise although looking back over this summer, I have experienced mild HE on hot days whilst very active and clothed, which I thought little of until this holiday.  I conclude that I am rather prone to HE and this is yet another blow to my aspirations to do more naturism in the sunshine.  I am afflicted like Job.  There are so many things that work against my desired naturist state such as a sun allergy, allergy to some suntan preps and insect repellants, a fair skin, an intolerant wife, living in the UK, an innate over caution of being observed.  Now add a tendency to HE and you are looking at me as an unlikely choice for a preference for naturism to be visited upon.  Why bother against these obstacles?  I gave up smoking and sugar in my tea.  Maybe it's time to give up naturism?
   Surprised to find just a single page of Recent Unread Topics over the last few weeks - correspondence seems to have been a bit sparse since 10th or 11th Sept when I last visited apart from a couple of chunky posts. 
Sadly, I am not even naked as I post this -  two reasons, other people in the house and need to keep warm!
Winter blues, I await your coming :(

What do you use to filter your water, jbee?
Your blog doesn't seem to include any swimming in those swimming holes!  Did you?

JMF,

Did you not try to swim in the little Lac du Lauzon?  I would have. 
How similar Brittany seems to the south west of England in the Belle Ile en Mer blog.  I suppose it should - it was probably part of the same land mass at one time.
It is fantastic and wonderful that the naturist hikers mixed freely with the textile hikers.  Did any of the textiles take off their clothes and become naked hikers?
How many were in your party?

You are a true spiritual romantic, Jbee.  And I recognise those feelings of communion with nature and natural forces - an icy clear night, a thunderstorm after a heatwave, a dark forest, the quiet of a snowscape, the isolation of a rolling, heather-clad moor.  All and more f the incidental moods of mother nature excite that same sense of wonder, sensuality, enjoyment and contact with the natural world that you eloquently describe in your blog.

I agree, Ric
But that takes some grit, resolve and balls to brave it out.
In my 12 years or so since I discovered the joys of naturism in nature, I have always managed to cover up in advance of possible encounters - which it has to be said have been very few.  I have certainly matured in this respect over the years, though.  At first, any slightest suggestion of the sounds of others approaching, while out walking, I would scurry into my clothes in a panic.  Over the years I have learned that only 0.1% of those sounds are really someone else and nowadays I don't cover up without waiting and watching for possible encounters.  If I have to cover up nowadays it is with leisurely pace and no panic.  As I say, that has served me well in avoiding encounters with others whilst naked.  One day I'll have the balls simply to do as many of you do and not cover up but bid the passer by a cheery hello!

How splendid, John P.
Some gorgeous countryside and vistas.
You don't say where you were walking!  Germany?  Austria?
How many were on the trip - in one of the photos it looks as if there is a coachload of you.  About 12, I estimate.  That right?

Oh I see!  Got it now.  Sorry.  Was a bit obtuse!
"People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones" is my usual way of expressing that sort of thing :)
Or perhaps "Methinks he doth protest too much" as Shakespeare had it (i.e. protesting to hide one's own shortcomings).

...and there's non-verbal communication, too, such as body language and facial expressions as well as, for some people, hand gestures (nothing vulgar, mind you). And in on-line messaging like this, that's all missing. But I don't think anyone talks the same as they might write, unless they're giving a speech, maybe.
Very true, Blue Train.  Its a bit of a handicap not having any facial expressions and hand gestures to clarify and enrich what we say here.

Jbee,
Is all this material from TSN Handbook written by Lookie originally?  If not, do you know where or from whom it originated?
