RE:  Driving naked.

I've been driving nude for a long time.  It was a bit scary the first time I did it, but I've learned that 1. nobody is looking. Everyone is minding their own business, 2. the body work hides most of your lower half.  I've never been able to see what color pants someone is wearing even while driving trucks, 3. Even if someone notices, nobody cares.

I have found that large parking garages and hotel parking lots are good place to dress or undress to drive naked.  They don't watch the parking lot and few pedestrians come and go.

Sometimes at fueling stations I put on pants as I get out of the car.  I find it difficult to even put on shorts in a car.  Everyone else is watching their own car or pump and not watching you.  Your car door and the pumps are as much shield as you need. Choose a pump toward the end rather than in the middle.  One time a couple years ago it was such a nice sunny day that I got tired of my shorts while waiting for the tank to fill, so I took them off, put them through the open window, and stood there naked pumping gas. Some old trucker headed for the big truck area came walking out of the store carrying a tray of coffee and food. He noticed me and stood there with his mouth open while I hung up the hose, got my receipt, walked round to the driver side of my car, and drove off naked. I don't do that often.  I have also driven through towns naked with the convertible top down.  My mustang is so low that my ass is probably only about a foot off the pavement.  I stop at traffic lights and watch the pedestrians walk past minding their own affairs. 

Frequently I drive the 12 miles into our local small town naked and then stop and cover at the edge of town. The bank parking lot or the grocery parking lot are probably not the best places to step out to dress, specially in a small town where other people may know me.  Then I do my shopping and stop again leaving town to undress.  When I'm not planning to stop I just drive through town naked.   I have never had any troubles from all my naked driving.

I won't accept lying.  Lying destroys your own honor and self image.  Some of this list is not acceptable, and may be dangerous.  Here's my take.

Rule 1 - Any activity leaves clues behind

Always leave a message telling someone where you went and when to expect you back.  A broken ankle on the trail could leave you dead if nobody knows where to go look for you.

Bare feet do a lot less damage to the path and leave a lot less evidence of your passage.

Rule 2 - Limit the number of people involved

We are a social species.  Don't hike alone unless you don't have someone to share with.  There is safety in numbers.

Rule 3 - Have a good cover story

Your cover story should be true.  Don't claim bird watching unless you are bird watching.  Saying you are “enjoying nature” is cover story enough when you aren't covered.

Rule 4 - Build up credibility for your cover story

Be honest.  Don't say you are bird watching, or mushroom gathering, or whatever unless you actually are.   Getting exercise from walking is enough of an honest story.

Rule 5 - Learn to Lie Effectively

Honorable men do not lie.  Learn to tell the truth all the time.  Be an honest and honorable person.  The truth is always better than a lie. 

Rule 6 - Prepare for the unexpected

Have a plan for when you encounter someone else.  If you don't have a plan you may panic and hide.

Rule 7 - Stay calm, don't panic, think

Have a plan for when you encounter someone else.  If you don't have a plan you may panic and hide.  Act as if hiking naked is common and normal.  Just say “Howdy” or similar and carry on.

Rule 8 - Make a list and check it twice

After a few excursions your naked adventures will be habit so you no longer need a list.

5. Consider the fact that the consequences of it becoming known that you have been keeping secrets and perhaps telling lies, might be greater than not keeping the secret in the first place. It might actually be better to own up?

Lying destroys your soul, and you know you are a dishonorable liar.  You don't have to tell everything you know, but everything you tell should be the truth.  This list is unacceptable and wrong for honorable men.

We had SNOW in September this year, and rain and cold wind.  Not a good month for outdoor naked.

I came across the SNS some years ago but even then, I was put off by the idea of deliberate stealth, as if it was a game. I wanted simply to become more comfortable with what is natural.

You got my vote Martin.  Well said.

Personally I much prefer Free Range Naturism to Secret Naturism.   For those of you who prefer to hide, go right ahead.

I don't see how you can claim that wearing clothes is not normal when 99.99% of the world's population does so, all the time.

Mass psychosis combined with herd mentality.

How can anyone claim that clothing is "normal" when 99.99% of species never do it?

According to CNN, which obtained a copy of

CNN is anti-trump lies and fake news 24/7.   Don't believe ANYTHING you see or hear from CNN about President Trump. 

I'm sure CNN made this up like so much other crap they spew.

A round of golf is a 6 mile hike through a beautiful green landscape.  It even has a little competition to give you some focus while out walking.  Many people appreciate doing that.  Much better if we could all play naked.

Koepka ended up getting 2nd in the FedEx 2019 Tour Championship.   2nd Prize was $5 Million.  Being naked on the side of a barn at the tournament didn't seem to hurt his golf any.   Very good worldwide publicity for nudity, and for being comfortable being seen naked.

Okay, but golf? Something wrong with bowling?

A lot of influential people pay and watch golf.  Getting nude among golfers is good publicity.

Brooks Koepka Slams Critics of Nude ESPN ‘Body Issue’: ‘They Don’t Have the Balls to Do It’

Watching the PGA Golf Tour Championship today.  $15,000,000 prize for winner.   One of the leaders is Brooks Kepka.  The TV golf coverage showed his nude photo which is larger than life on a building beside the parking lot where golfers arrive.  He sidestepped reporter questions and said he's just there to play golf.

I love to see this kind of publicity for major sports people being seen Larger Than Life naked and on major sports TV.  The announcers talked about it for several minutes.  It gives normalcy for nude champions and other people.  ESPN is a big sports TV venue so their publication of nude athletes is also good for nude in general.

PGA rules don't allow players to wear shorts, long pants, etc. are required on the golf course.

Speaking of military sleeping bags. Those old tents and denim covered metal canteens, all had that particular smell about them. New, or old. What was that? Mold? Materials?

I think the old WWII surplus canvas materials had a particular smell because of some kind of preservative used during the war. It kept the cotton canvas from rotting in the jungles but had a chemical odor.

Here we are back to the condition of a body being cooped up in clothing. A body needs to breathe. A body isn't designed to be in clothing. It tolerates it. It is designed to tolerate quite a lot of conditions.
Jbee (again)

Being uncovered and our body secretions allowed to evaporate from natural ventilation is a large part of staying healthy in my observation. 

Quote from: ric
i still dont come into the house just to pee in the toilet,  even on occasions go out in the garden to pee rather than flush it away with 2 gallons of potable (allegedly) water.  weve even gone back to drinking pure unadulterated well water rather than the chlorinated mains water.

Agreed Ric.  When I pee on my lawn it turns darker green in that place because the grass feels more loved.  Recycling my body waste back to green plants is my way of giving myself back to the earth.   As the saying goes, "The grass is always greener above the drain field." 

We live 10 miles past the end of city water so all we get is well water.  The city has their own wells too, but they add chlorine or something.

I believe that men who say exhibitionism is harmless need to hear about it from a woman. As with a fair number of male behaviors, actually.

A lot of men complain about female behavior too.   Somehow behavior only becomes criminal when men do it.   I still see no harm in exhibitionism that rises to a level above being rude.  Nobody has ever been able to document someone suffering actual harm from seeing another member of his or her own species.  If such documentation exists, nobody has ever been able to point to it on the many time's I've asked on public forums.

I am not so condescending about women being too frail to see men.  Condescension is sometimes said to be the worst form of prejudice. Women are much stronger than fluffy flowers who fall into mush upon seeing a man.  Even when she cries, "Boo hoo, I'm a victim," no, she is not.

Reading the above link to DSM, the Shrinks say Exhibitionism is a form of "paraphilia" I had to look up a definition for paraphilia. 

Paraphilia is the experience of intense sexual arousal to atypical objects, situations, fantasies, behaviors, or individuals. Such attraction may be labeled sexual fetishism. No consensus has been found for any precise border between unusual sexual interests and paraphilic ones.Wikipedia

The shrinks are not able to form a consensus regarding what sexual interest is unusual and what is not.  On its face it could be argued that gay or lesbian is Paraphilia, but of course all the gay, lesbian, and PC shrinks would object to that just because.  Far better to attack men who get sexually aroused around women.   

I still fail to see where any exhibitionism amounts to anything more than being rude.   Despite all the hysteria, I have never seen any documented evidence that anyone of either sex or any age has ever actually been harmed by seeing another member of his or her own species.  In general, its another way to hate men and punish men as criminals for emotion driven behavior.  All that hate is just wrong for a decent society.
