Then, there are places like Vermont, or a legal public gathering where there is no anti-nude law.

I have read that Vermont makes "Disrobing" illegal, but once you're naked you are good.   So nudists have to be careful not to be seen while removing their clothes.

I tend to wear only shorts on warm days, not the shirt.    I have a pack on my bicycle where it goes.   If I'm on foot I carry a small day pack with water, etc., and the shorts go there.

Never one to deny a hunter a good laugh, I returned to my route and continued on by, flashing a peace sign to the camera behind me. I wish I could catch the owner's reaction when they check out the footage! It made my day, and hopefully will make theirs too.

Good response.   Smile and wave.  We don't need to hide.   

I wonder if the cam owner would send a copy if we leave a not with an e-mail address?

Stone Throwing: From "The Secret Naturist Handbook"

I have read that paleolithic human encampments often left piles of stones for throwing.   Apparently stone throwing has been part of human survival for millions of years.  Our shoulders adapted for throwing are unique even among primates.  No other animal of any sort can manage it -- except perhaps bigfoots if they exist.

For web sites that don't matter much I use simple passwords, and often the same as other sites, but I still have to write down what my "use name," "e-mail" and password is for each site.

If you were so inclined in the UK today, visiting a school site or even a park, you would be picked up on cctv.  In the UK we have an incredible amount of cctv for traffic, security, maintenance, sundry business operations etc. such that in urban areas you are likely to be picked up somewhere outside.  Not quite as bad in the countryside of course but there is increasing use of it on people's houses.

Ubiquitous video cameras are generally ignored.   Few things are as boring as watching hour after hour of video to see if anything at all happened.  I pretty much ignore them.  Nobody really cares anyway in most places and circumstances.   I also don't worry if someone holds up a camera and wants to take my picture.  I smile and wave.  I'm not ashamed to be seen naked. 

Back in the 1950s the public would have had a cow if they saw a teen wandering naked through the night, and in a small town most everyone knew everyone.  Today, not so much.

I seem to remember Dave Balead getting fingered by the police and prosecuted for walking naked across a golf course where cctv evidence was obtained.  Happily also we now have a more liberal police attitude to public nudity.

Golf courses work hard to stop trespassers walking on their property.   

PS It seems to be a funny semantic thing - being naked in public is always referred to as public nudity - never public nakedness.  Have you noticed this too? 

Haven't noticed that but you are probably right.

At least the “aliens” were naked even if you couldn’t be!

I always assumed that aliens were depicted as being covered in some kind of body suit, like a space suit but more form fitting.  Perhaps for protection on a planet with a different atmosphere.  Even the "bug" eyes look like goggles of some kind.

Sneaking is great fun. We used to sneak around after curfew, sneak out of the house at night.  Older, we used to go down to the border and sneak across back and forth for kicks. Intoxicated back in the 80's, we walked naked through the suburban neighborhood late at night. It was scary, our perception of the circumstance and the law made it so. Taking risks is like gambling, fun, but nekkid, there is no money to gain and the risk can be high stakes in some states.

When I was 13 or so I sometimes would need to "sneak" out of the house late at night to run naked through the neighborhood.  Watch the floorboard with the squeak.  Open and close the side door slowly.   

Being out in the neighborhood naked at night was a thrill in mid summer when it was warm and we were young.  I went to the nearby park.  I went three blocks to the elementary school, walked around the High School.  Hid behind trees or bushes when a car drove past (rare). 

Part of the excitement was because we were doing something prohibited.  Mostly it just felt so good to be naked in the world.

Unfortunately I can't see these videos as they up a screen saying adult content and require a login and I don't do vimeo and I don't really want yet another account and login etc. to add to the 3 myriads I already have!  Any hacking suggestions? :)

I won't get a membership to You-Tube, but I am now a member of Vimeo.   I have to keep a multiple page list of accounts and passwords.

Naked on the subway.   No tan lines.
Same guy has other videos of urban nudity on Vimeo

Berlin, Germany.   Everyone is curious, some take a picture, but nobody seems to cause him troubles.

Free Range Naturism / Re: How was your month for Free Range Naturism?
« on: September 08, 2021, 05:40:07 PM »
I got out to do some Free Range bicycling again in August.  This is at a public trail near us called Cheney Wetlands Trail.  On my most recent excursion I met a nice middle age couple walking the path.  They said they have never seen anyone riding naked.  The woman seemed especially enthused.  She got out her cell phone and took my picture.  I smiled for her camera.  Over the years of hiking and biking public trails I have encountered far more approval than objection.  All in all it was a good day and a good month to be naked in the wild.   I'm not really into "secret" naturism. 

These images are linked to MeWe, a social media where I often post nude images.

More than once, I have had strong sense of an evil presence, and then a rattlesnake comes out from under something.

I grew up in an area where people would come to for hunting rattlesnakes.  Anti-venom is made from snake venom so the producers have to catch live rattlesnakes.  They chose our area because of the abundance of snakes.   

I never worried about the snakes on trails.  Often they like to sit in the sun on trails because it's open and not shaded.  I would frequently be hiking down the trail and step over the snakes without even noticing.  The second person in line is more likely to get bit because the snake has time to wake up.   I even accidentally stepped on a rattlesnake once. 

My father's generation used to shoot or otherwise kill rattlesnakes just because.  I was taught that as a child, but I've learned that carnivorous snakes are important for keeping the population of rodents in check.   My current home area has more Blue Racer snakes than rattlesnakes but we have some of both.  I like to encourage the Blue Racers around home.  Otherwise we have voles or field mice making burrows in the lawn.

Yup, Probably snipped me to fit the tall thin mag cover. I'm not THAT homely! ;D

Probably snipped you out to maintain the image that Naturism is about hot naked women.    A mature man would not attract their market.

Thank you for your work on the site.   I'll keep in mind that maintenance is ongoing for a while.

Nice photo.  I got my copy today.   One might wonder why they didn't use the photo with both of you.  Actually it looks like they cropped you out of the picture.

Hmmmm?  I don't seem to have received issue 40.4 yet.  I've still only got 40.3.   

That does seem to make sense, that nude events limit nudity and let people do unusual things without allowing general acceptance.
