I studied personality tests as part of my doctoral studies.  The Meyers Briggs test (and really all personality tests) are unreliable because they simplify the fact that people behave differently in different situations.  (naturists know that of course.)  One author called them management astrology.

Yes we settled for a manufactured home - much less expensive and higher quality than in the past.  Yes I have dough a trench for a water line to the garden, but won't need a tank since we will have a well soon.

Our house loan was finally approved the beginning of July.  The house is ordered.  The well pad has been done (although the fire evacuation slowed down the drilling for a few weeks).  And now the driveway is roughed-in to the top of the hill.  I drove to the top of the hill yesterday for the first time.  It made hauling water for the garden (nude of course) much easier.  I'm also digging a new nude trail on the east side of the hill.  And the naked meditation continues.  It's amazing to experience this progress, and everyone is of course welcome to visit and walk the trails.

Thanks for the thoughts.  So far the trails are fine, but they have evacuated the area.  We'll just have to wait and see.

International Hike Naked Day

I was busy on International Hike Naked Day (6/21/2017), so had to be satisfied with hiking the Nature & Meditation Trail on my land.  I spent several hours walking naked (as I do most days – I need it).  In addition to signs for the types of vegetation and major religions, as a naturist I have included many signs with nature- related quotes.  Here are a few:

“Over the years, people have lost most of their connection with nature.  One would be surprised how many children only know forests or natural lakes from TV, they’ve never seen it with their own eyes.  We need to get back to nature, we need to remember the smell of nature, we need to feel nature, we need to see nature.  Instead of watching that soap opera every day, we should make it a habit to spend at least a little bit of time every day in a green environment.  To touch nature, with our hands, our feet, our whole body.  We need to learn to love nature again.” - Travelblog

“Nature should be a fundamental part of democracy; it’s a human right and a necessity.” – Florence Williams

“I simply allow myself to be in and with nature.  There I am connected even as I am shattered.  I have peace even with the madness within.  And even as I feel lost, here I am home.” - Hontouniheart

“In every walk with nature, one receives more than he seeks.” - John Muir

“I'd forgotten I once noticed the seasons, the calling of birds, the smell of sap on the air.  Finding that person again has been one of the most intense and comforting experiences of my life.” - Julie Myerson

“I go out in nature to recharge my batteries, to renew my soul, and to scrub off the layers of crud that living in civilization puts on me.” - Al

“The important thing is to experience the moment, the right now as it is.  Just be aware of the breathing, the air, the sun, the movement, no judgment, just the gift.  Then the mind is just there.  It is getting in the way most of the time.” - Jbee Goode

“Mother Nature is naked in all her glory.  Man covers her up with concrete and destroys her natural beauty.  We seek the places where she is the most untouched for there she is the most beautiful.”

“If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.” – Vincent Van Gogh

“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” - Albert Einstein

Everyone is welcome to visit our natural trail in Dewey, AZ.

Most every day I am blessed to be able to spend hours naked working on our land - improving trails, watering the garden, meditating.  Of course I love it!

June was already too hot down in the valley of the sun, but up north now is a great time.  Let me know if there is interest and I'll do it again.

I sponsored an Arizona Feehiking week in 2013 and it resulted in several very memorable hikes.  Here is a report I wrote at the time:

A small group of hardy naturists from around the country gathered for the first ever Arizona Freehiking Week, June 4-10, 2013.  Participants came from Arizona, Utah, South Dakota, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut for this unique event.  Tuesday four of these hardy freehikers trekked naked about three miles around the Black Canyon Trail loop, just north of Phoenix.  Afterwards, several of these hikers enjoyed a Chinese food lunch at the Shanghai Club in Anthem, AZ, then returned to Shangri La to soak in the pool.  On the second day, three freehikers drove 20 minutes north of Shangri La to Badger Springs.  The Aura Fria river had shrunk to large pools, without running water, so it was easier to hike downstream.  Naked boulder hopping is the best way to traverse this rugged, trail free canyon.  After several hours of freehiking we reached and dipped in one last large pool, and hiked back.  Day three was a day to escape the record desert heat and visit Sedona.  Six freehikers, including the ladies, drove north to enjoy the cooler weather in this beautiful red-rock tourist area.  Several of the group decided to stay overnight and freehike the cooler high mountain areas around Flagstaff.  The rest of the group returned to Shangri La and enjoyed sunning and soaking on the forth day.  Sycamore Creek, east of Phoenix, was our destination on the fifth day.  This is a popular nudist area so the hikers were able to strip at the car and head down the trail.  We reached some wonderful desert pools.  All enjoyed skinny-dipping in several of the refreshing pools in this beautiful desert canyon.  The plan for the final day was to freehike the Cave Creek area, but the record heat finally got the better of us, so we decided to just relax in the sun and pool at Shangri La.  Still, this was a great week; Walt summed it up well: "The freehiking week was fun!  I enjoyed hiking with seasoned freehikers and it was a great learning experience.  Thank you for organizing the event."

There are many places to camp.  Some improved and some not.  I've never seen things full up.  The trail is totally private and unimproved camping is available there.

You are welcome to visit our improved trail, and I have also created a trail in the Mingus Mountains just 20 minutes away.  It's private (no need to carry a cover-up) and beautiful with wonderful evergreen forest.  I've created a nice picnic area near the top.  We could include a visit to an old mining town.  Be glad to share these.

I keep working on them.  I've added a new entrance from the road and an entrance station, new signs, and a completely new trail system near where the house will sit.  All are welcome to come walk.

Gardening May 2017

The weather the first weekend of May, 2017, was poor for World Naked Gardening Day, and besides Amy and I were busy preparing for a house on our land (finally), however, I worked mostly naked on the trails (trimming and installing signs) at least a little most days in May.  I also trenched a water line from the garden to our anticipated house.  Soon we’ll have a well so the water will be easy to obtain, rather than carrying it in gallon plastic bottles.  However, May was quickly passing, so after signing the house contract Monday, May 22nd, on Tuesday May 23rd I planted the garden (naked of course), and carried water for the newly planted seeds.  I then walked the Nature and Meditation Trail on our land (this can also be done nude).  All are welcome to visit.  Meditating nude in nature is such a blessing; it’s a ‘great’ way to manifest positive results in life!
