Now that's a much more Eco-friendly idea!

I'm not a helicopter expert but he silhouette of the machine in picture 7 looks like a Black Hawk which I believe is military only, so your idea of some form of exercise/training seems most likely,  Eyesup.

Shame their timing spoiled your walk.

Pleased to see that this year they've gone back to having some Fridays in the schedule, not all Sundays. A weekday is easier for me to get along to so I might actually get back here this year

There's another side to the drone debate, for anyone worried about being spotted while out nude hiking (nuking?). Take a drone. Fly it on ahead to scout out the area and see if any encounters are imminent. Just a thought ... The downside is that it's more electronic intrusion cluttering up an otherwise enjoyable naked ramble.

For some reason...something isn't resonating with this whole thing.

Putting naked people on the show might, of course, have something to do with trying to improve the show's ratings. Or am I being too cynical ... ?

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

Our English back lanes are frequently only single vehicle width with notches carved into the headgerows every few hundred yards as "passing places"  -  still needs care to edge past each other even then. Parking in such a space is definitely a no-no, the nadir of countryside etiquette. I'm always on the lookout for remote parking spots as a base for some nude field/woodland exploring, and as John Nuduke says they're not that easy to find.

My dream trip is to cross the US on a motorcycle, stopping wherever possible at nudist resorts/B&Bs/hotels, wherever. So if I make the trip then I'll be sure Dewey is on the sat nav. Until then, how about some pictures, Ken

JB's point about tolerance and civility becoming thin in the ground gels with the increase we've seen in a general clampdown on anything that anyone deems 'offensive', to the point where we regularly see free speech and debate stifled at birth. Lately in the UK we've had a number of instances of universities, of all places, opposing or banning contentious issues because they intrude on students' "safe space". WTF?

At the London School of Economics students have felt the problem so keenly that some have set up a Free Speech Society to combat the problem, only to have a counter movement appear trying to ban it (though there might be some irony at work here).

I feel as though the rest of the world is starting to experience what naturists/nudists have had to put up with for ages - what's so wrong it has to be banned?

The Utah incident reads like the ranger was on the side of shower man (or at least wanting a quiet life without all these complaints!) and only telling him to stop because of the complaint. Indeed he got shower man's friends to tell him to stop rather than strongarming him himself.

The motion sensors that trip the camera into action have a limited range.

The trouble with motion sensors is that they sense motion - and in countryside that will include trees and bushes, so there probably isn't an "out of range" safety zone. On the other hand if the recording is motion-activated it's probably, therefore, permanently recording and filling up the recording medium.

Interesting case, of neighbours watching one's land by camera. As Bob says, it's no different from being seen with the naked eye, but ... If the neighbour's naked eye is present one can choose to interact or not with said neighbour. But the camera is presumably watching even if the neighbour is out of the country, and /or may be on motion-detect (for the wildlife) so is recording one without human intervention and any interaction is one-sided.

The neighbour's assertion it was for the children to see the wildlife adds another dimension, our old friend the "what about the children" cry. Children watch the camera footage and see naked grown-ups. Parents then complain their children have been despoiled. Officious law officers take the parents' side, and only after a long and expensive court battle does the right to privacy (with luck) win out over the "protection" of the minors.

Interesting take on the "not in front of the children" theme - of particular note is his comment: "The wide majority of people were on my side. Of course, there was a little number of people who were really, really upset by the picture, but who gives a shit about them? That's the weird thing about this whole debate. Somehow the people who are most scared of nudity got the upper hand."

According to the historical accounts, British woad was very effective at frightening the Roman invaders. Unfortunately it was no substitute for stab-proof vests or, as the Romans called it, armour, when it came to deflecting sword thrusts. Back to the drawing board ....
