General Naturism Discussion / Re: And you thought clothing was bad

I agree with you, Peter and Ric.  It's not really true to the vegan lifestyle if you feel the need to eat things that resemble meat even though they are vegetable to the core.  It is the equivalent of, say, a nun using a dildo.  She gets the thrill  but still stays celibate.  That's not the point of the celibacy is it!
Blue Train is on the mark too - this recent explosion of vegetarian and vegan options in pre-prepared and processed food is obviously a marketing ploy to sell more stuff to everyone not just veggies.  We all feel good if we have had a meatless meal, hence the ridiculous popularity of Greggs Vegan Sausage rolls as a lunchtime food for busy workers to feel a tiny bit better (i.e. self righteous) in their lunch break :)

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

"The see through nature of the hedges." I like that expression. That's what the trees around here are like now. Nobody has hedges, though, and I guess that's why there are no hedgehogs.

Hedgehogs are becoming ever rarer in the UK.  They are under considerable pressure from predation, destruction of habitat (hedgerows), decline in edible invertebrates, pesticides, roadkill, increase in the badger population (they eat hedgehogs) and probably some sort of cyclical decline.  Estimates vary but one stark statistic is catastrophic fall in about 50 years from estimated 36m in the 1950s to a low of ~0.5m in the UK in 2018, hardly enough to reproduce and maintain the population, one might venture.  Goodbye cute little hedgehogs, you will be sadly missed.  Hope the zoos and rescue centres manage to keep the population alive.

Oh - how nice that you all met up.
Is 'S' also a naturist?

Quote from: Bob Knows
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?
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.

Incidentally, I'm out of the country and away from my usual computer till first of the month. I don't know how much time that I'll have to post and this will cause a break in the HAndbook thread for that short time.

Out of the country, Jbee?
My curiosity is roused, and no mistake!
Where are you visiting?  Holiday?

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.   

I was at a restaurant last week that served vegan Fish & Chips!  Go figure.  It was made of mushrooms apparently :D

Here's more to worry about: https://www.theguardian.com/food/2020/feb/13/how-ultra-processed-food-took-over-your-shopping-basket-brazil-carlos-monteiro.

Best taken with a grain of salt.

Salt is also bad for you they say!! :D
Maybe just a pinch :) :)

Trip reports / Re: Sonoita and South, Huachuca Mountains, Miller Canyon

Unusually this report illustrates a lot of flat plain land.  Really interesting contrast to your usual rocky and mountainous haunts, Jbee!
Was it further afield?  Seems not. The Sonoita Patagonia road and Huachuca City seem to be just about an hours drive from Tucson.

Pretty not naturist in January and so far in February.  See my latest post in Coping with Cold Weather thread.
I find it hard to make naturist plans at the moment.  Life is so busy (which is broadly a good thing) that naked recreation takes a bit of  back seat.  I have some things I want to do - wild swimming, cross the ford of a local river nude (I will do this this summer I feel), travel to a naturist place in the north of our county, investigate the coastline (about 2hrs drive away) and see if I can find a nook to bathe naked and solitary, not a naturist beach necessarily, just somewhere deserted I could do a bit of secret naturism.
Until the spring at least the hatches are battened down until the weather warms up.

Ah! Safebare's assertion that dressing is the exceptional is sadly a luxury of those in hot climates.
The weather in the UK at the moment is foul.  High winds (enough to blow a hole in my roof twice in 2 weeks dammitt! :( ), driving rain (causing widespread flooding) and whilst the temperatures are a bit above normal if you go outside even clothed you quickly feel the wind chill and about 50% of the day in the last week or so, after a few minutes you are well on the way to getting soaked.  What I do is stay inside!  Even then with the central heating on, clothes are necessary mor often than not although happily I am naked as I write this.  Roll on the summer I say.
As is usual for me nowadays, in the winter (that is, October to March or April) if there is a cold sunny clear day or a crisp starlit night I often go out in the garden naked for a little while.  There is usually a breeze and so time is limited to an enjoyable 'airbath' of a few minutes or a quarter hour duration.
I don't cope with cold weather as a rule...I just get a bit depressed by it.
I can go to my not very local naturist swim in the cold months, which I do from time to time but there seems often something in the diary to prevent it.  I just put the 2020 swim dates into my diary and the first clear day to go, due to a holiday and other engagements is mid April!!!
I try to do indoor chores in the buff and if that involves, say, taking the trash out or fetching something from outside/garage, all the better done naked.
As I sit typing, I am cooling down rapidly albeit that the temperature is about 65-68F.  There's a bit of a draught due to the 40mph winds outside.
Hey ho.  I hope we have a nice summer....

Gosh, now that you lay it out in order and list of your tribulations, it is clear that you have had a terrible time indeed.
So very much sending good wishes for the success of your return to full health and fitness.

I noticed this typo in the headgear post below - made me smile
Quote
to keep a large percentage of body head from escaping into the air.

In the sun I wear a wide brimmed hat.  I discovered on holiday in California that the cowboy hat is not just a decorative idiomatic shape.  It does a good job improving my tolerance of heat and sun (although it was lesser protection in the 35-40 deg heat of Egypt).  The hat has a tall crown that provides insulation, a wide brim, and shade (opines Wikipedia!).  Mine is not so large as a stetson, made of a sort of stiff canvas and has latticed vent holes in the crown.
In the cold I wear a wooly hat and I do have a sort of peaked fur lined thing with ear muffs that untie and drop down but I don't wear that much as I look a bit of a berk in it! :)
