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

I didn't know what autophlagia was, but I looked it up and found "autophagia" instead, which means "Autophagia occurs when one is compelled to inflict pain upon oneself by biting and/or devouring portions of one's body."

OK, so I spelled it wrong.  Take the "l" out.   

Autophagia or Autophagy

Definitions:
     2. Maintenance of the nutrition of the whole body by metabolic consumption of some of the body tissues.
     3. Synonym(s): autophagy

It means consumption of your body by your body, which is how old recycled cells go away, and how extra flesh goes away.

Now my skin is all wrinkly from losing so much size.   I'm hoping that autophlagia will make that go away, but it will be slow.

I do see how that might lead to the removal of some excess tissue, but there are probably better ways to achieve it. In fact I hope you'll say you meant something else!

Went out bicycling on the Cheney Wetlands Trail SW of Spokane, WA, USA.  I passed 4 textile people today, a group of 3 on bicycles, and a single man walking.  I don't think the Secret Naturist Handbook would approve.  I smile and "howdy" them as I pass.  The single man waved back.  The 2 men and 1 woman on bicycles kept looking straight ahead and didn't say anything.  Nudity needs to be seen in pubic to become normal.  It was a beautiful day. for a naked bike ride.

I would expect strands of tape like that to be electrified. Or perhaps it's a bluff, and the animals think it's electrified but the owner has set up the tapes but hasn't turned on the current! Of course, humans might respond the same way. Is the owner's name Pavlov?

Lately I've been visiting places I've learned about on Facebook groups run by a couple of local hiking groups. I'm very appreciative of the information, and the results have been on the Trip Reports pages here. But it has occurred to me to wonder whether some day I'll encounter the Western Massachusetts Hilltown Hikers while I'm strolling down some trail naked! It would be particularly interesting because I have done a couple of hikes with that group, though not very recently, so maybe they wouldn't remember me.

Sometimes I'm willing to get out of naturist mode, and I could enjoy a walk with an organized group, though if there were to be a swim stop, I'm not sure I could refrain from asking "Does anyone mind if I swim nude?" But there are a couple of nice swimming spots out in western MA that naturists have known about forever, and now I'm seeing hikers being encouraged to go there. That can't be a good thing! But in general I think people should be out there enjoying the outdoors, and without people willing to do some organizing, lots of potential walkers wouldn't know where to go, or they'd wander around and get hurt or lost, or just not find anything very interesting. I think members of this group have had enough experience that we aren't intimidated by finding our own way!

One response to a point in the Secret Naturist handbook (just how lengthy is that, anyway? There always seem to be more episodes) is sometimes if another walker has a dog, it can be a help to the roaming naturist. Often the dog will be running out in advance of its owner, and it can alert you to the fact that people are nearby, and you can be sure Fido won't go running back to the owner with tales of how anyone is dressed. And in the past I've actually had advance warning from the jingle of the metal parts on a dog's collar.

I get regular online bulletins from the local hikers group of retirees at Dug Mountain, which hang out in Tortolita hills, their backyard.

We visited a couple in Dewey Prescott last week. They have been exploring free range hikes. He stops by the side of the road and takes a walk up a canyon or a wash. They took us to a couple of special finds.

I suppose that I'm a great source these days.

I was following a group of regional hikers on Meet Up. I thought to get together with them and exchange information and confess that we nude freehike. The goal was to find great hikes and then do them nude, or get a line on hikes that they had done. The Site fizzled. After Covid, I'll work on that again...we did avoid them one morning in the Huachuca Mountains because of internet posts. We just left an hour before them from teh same campsite.

I can usually assume that the sources that Lookee was suggesting would lead me to populated trails. Those sources show me where NOT to go. A good trail can sometimes be investigated and nearby, or odd forks, or off canyons will be found on the trail. That's how I found my special spot on Mt. Lemmon. These can also be found by Google Map satellite photos, if clues are  followed and save lots of driving. Perseverance furthers.

Places are crawling on weekends can be serene on weekdays, extreme differences.

Local Knowledge: From The Secret Naturist Handbook

Every secret naturist can benefit from local knowledge pertaining to where they intend to carry out a secret naturist outing. Even before you visit a location there is often much you can learn about it from various sources. For example, I had planned a major nude walk through a local plantation, one where I was intending to go some distance without clothing. The evening before I glanced at the local free paper and read that a motorcycle Enduro was taking place that very same day. Clearly I made other arrangements, as the area would be teeming with people.

Local knowledge can be found in many locations, including the following:
•   Libraries and other public buildings
•   Local tourist information centres
•   Certain shops e.g. shooting, fishing, biking, etc
•   Supermarket and high street shop notice boards
•   Specific activity magazines e.g. Birding
•   Local and even national newspapers
•   Subject specific web sites e.g. Horse jumping
•   Local television and radio stations

Basically what you are looking for are the times and location of various events such as fishing competitions, clay pigeon shooting, cross country running, outdoor concerts and so on. Really anything that will let you know where large numbers of people may be at specific times, giving you the option of avoiding that location and heading elsewhere. One column in the local rag that I give specific attention is the time and location for the local rambling clubs outing. Nothing worse than meeting 20 or 30 old dears when striding purposefully naked across the moors!

As well as events, local knowledge can also include local holidays. Here in the Scottish Borders, most towns have an annual festival when hundreds of horses, and riders, ride the county boundaries. There is also an increased amount of urban activity during the wee small hours as these festivals tend to be used an excuse to get drunk more than usual. There is also a raised Police presence as well.

Local holidays are also worth noting, with public and bank holidays indicating increased activity at popular locations in the countryside. Again, a local example, is a popular picnic area near my local patch at the Meldon Hills. Normally on a good weather day there might be 5 or 6 cars parked with the occupants staying locally to their cars. On a holiday weekend there can be 50 or more cars with people walking all over the place and many staying over night. A place to avoid at this time.
A useful tip to find out where people are walking is to pick up a walking, cycling or fishing leaflet (or booklet) at the tourist information centre. This will tell you where the local walks, etc, are and where people are most likely to be. You can also us it to plan your own secret naturist outings, of course, at times more suitable for the secret naturist.

What other local knowledge can the secret naturist benefit from? Well two popular sports, fishing and game shooting take place at various times of the year. Both are usually permitted during certain defined months of the year, known as “open seasons” when game and fish may be taken. These open seasons vary widely both geographically and between species. Check your local tackle and shooting retailers for accurate local information.

General Naturism Discussion / Some More Thoughts Article

The mind begins to wander....

I put together some thoughts about naturism and put some pics to it from De Anza from a few years back. That place is so special, the surreal mystery of the place, the magic sort of transferred into the text, like setting it to music. I thought that these were some pretty neat photos that needed a place. They were taken by my friend, me and DF.

Sometimes farmers round our way will string a couple of lines of fencing like that to keep walkers on the footpath, but unless they use electric fencing it doesn't seem to deter the livestock if they decide the grass over there is greener.
