Just a quick follow up to the story. I managed to contact someone who gave me the story on why they just don't go nude with a lookout. Part of the island has been set aside as a wildlife area where birds can nest and turtles lay eggs without any interference from humans. The fear is if the rangers have to make repeated calls that they will just make the whole island off limits. There is also a no alcohol policy and those that were caught drinking loaded up their boat and left. I was far away so I couldn't tell if peer pressure had anything to do with it. Also want to do the story justice in a trip report with pictures when I get to my computer.

I'm failing to see the logic there. If there is a lookout and cover up when others are around, then a ranger won't be called. If you at first saw nude then closer tiny things on them, then why tiny things at all, just cover up for strangers.

I was told at Black's Beach to please cover climbing the hill by a local, so as to not make waves for trouble to latch onto. I complied to their turf where they live.

The trip report will be fun, I'm sure. The last four days I took notes each day. As I put it into the computer and began trip reports, it improved my memory of anecdotes immensely. I'd love to get your usual details and ambiance, like past reports, but this time, a tropical fantasy of mine comes alive. You are duly encouraged.

I also fail to see the logic but "when in Rome" was my feeling to the situation. We did discuss the lookout thing so we'll see next trip out. And I keep s journal for those details so now hope the pictures do it justice. The waterproof camera doesn't have many settings to allow for light, shade etc.

You have set the bar high with your reports Jbee, you and DF  have made dull days exciting many times. Great rainy day reading!

Many years ago, at the Verde River Hot springs, we would conspire and post lookouts from Feds, and cops. The Fed was on the west bank and the state was on the eastern. We would camp east and cross to the springs. It was instant community.

I remember my young wife, a cute head turning hottie all browned out, was walking across a field of river rock, trapped by the difficult terrain and barefeet all over. A forest service truck came over the ridge, catching her. I stood behind the door putting on pants, she was stuck ambling slowly, a few feet from their bumper. They looked kinda dumbfounded and certainly not offended by the beautiful sight, gracefully balancing on the difficult rocks. "Cover 'em up," the voice called with a smile. They surprised us in our reasonable expectation of privacy.

If you go down to the woods today ...


If someone really doesn't want to be seen naked, he or she should not be wandering around naked.   

I now ignore the ubiquitous video cams, but I still look for trail cams in some areas.

A guy with a sense of humour?

This reminds me of a security camera which caught a guy on camera in a lift during the small hours of the night. He rode up and down in the otherwise empty lift completely naked.
 
I was in the Police at the time and we decided there were no offences committed, so we had a chuckle and that was that.

I agree Bob. Which is why most of us have an idea of what we will say to anyone we may bump into while naked hiking. We accept that possibility.

More common sense in law enforcement, Davie, is a good thing. ;)

Not wanting to start a new thread but I just wanted to add onto this one and tell my story of last Sunday. Much like Bluetrain has spoken of I do frequent Wildlife Management areas for my free range times. On my last travel there another vehicle was parked there, for the first time in the three years since I discovered the place. So I waited in my truck for a while trying to decide what my course of action would be when a couple emerged from the woods. Quite covered I might add as if they have taken the warnings of local so called experts concerning tick avoidance. Also they were carrying a trail camera which they had just retrieved. In a short conversation I found out their area of operation which is near a small pond and a place I avoid because of another pest, namely mosquitoes. So after they left I managed to get in a few hours of nude time, under skies that threatened to open up at any minute.

I can't believe I missed this thread.

These days I do most of my hiking in suburban parks, all wooded with fair sized ponds in the middle. Trails and paths vary from paved to non-existent. Year before last (winter of 86-87), they began to allow deer hunting in these areas. Same hunting seasons as elsewhere, only this is in a county with a million people. Hunting with bow and arrow only, of course. Signs are posted, too. That was before I retired, though, so I only went out on Sundays, when there was no hunting allowed. In the area I usually go through, I spotted not one, but two game cameras. Being the nervous type, I avoided them. Last season (87-88), same thing, only no game cameras. Don't know why. But I still refrained from going out except on Sunday. Don't want anyone to say I was interfering with a hunt.

Insects are real bad this summer. Can't wait for cold weather.

New game cams are small and camouflaged.  They can be very hard to find.

Could be. The ones I saw were large and yellow. I was startled to see them, too. There may have been some there last season that I didn't see but at least the ones before were placed in an area that has a fair number of deer moving around. Foxes, too.
