Now that the month is nearing an end I must say that despite the start of 3.16 inches of rain here (compared to an average of 1.95) and despite almost having our trip almost washed out with much more rain there than here the month is ending on a high note. Taking advantage of the 90 plus degree weather and no rainfall for the last five days I can say that my yardstick for a good month is the ratio of naked to clothed and I can say that there has been much more naked time than textile!

That's great, Nightwalker.

I've never been to a designated nudist area but when I go to a favorite spot, it sort of holds that designation in my mind. If I can get to it wearing as little as possible, or nothing at all, all the better.

For me it adds to the impression that I am doing some ordinary things naked. Not simply visiting a spot and spending time there naked, but getting to be naked while in the process of going there. It adds to my experience.

Yes, pictures would be good!

We have had a hot summer so far, some degrees above normal, and very little rain.  I've been outside naked on my land every day and going naked a few other places.  I haven't gone free ranging much this year, sticking close to home.  Some driving naked.  Carpe Diem!

This year's weather on the Canadian prairie has been ideal for naturism
... hot and dry! With a near absence of rain, I've barely even encountered mosquitos.

Although my secret naturist romps have traditionally been in the dead of night, I've now switched mainly to freehiking across the plains. This summer, I've found a safe place to park, at a Berry plantation 3 kms from a nudist beach. After the first half kilometre or so, I'm out of the public's line of sight, and out of my clothes. The rest of the way is through a dried-out river tributary, across a wheatfeld, and through a meadow enclosed by forest. I eventually emerge at the river, right at the nudist beach.

I'm able to stay nude all day, dressing again only near the end of my return hike, when nearing the public road that leads to the plantation.

The meadows I cross are wonderful. I'll have to post some pics soon.
Things have improved. Bring on the Pics!

Yea, July turned out actually less clothed than I had predicted. Since I wrote that last post, I had to go shopping for food for the trip and get flyers printed. I didnt wear anything during the 5 days of holiday, came home to lay around sick a couple of days. Then last night, I went through emissions testing, had thirty minutes of sushi and 2 hours of the usual Wednesday night. Ill not dress until tomorrow evening most likely. It must be a personal record for a month without clothing. A couple of hours here and there dont seem bother me much, if Im in an enjoyable activity, like last night, but I was undressed as soon as I walked into DFs door. Seems that I know what I like. Clothes are silly.

Nuduke commented, Jbee, you are getting like the japanese islander - always skyclad! Nah, hes a recluse. I have a social life, a spiritual connection with others, goals, a girlfriend and community interests. I even have stuff I like to do that requires being dressed here and there.

July is not quite over yet, but Caroles plans suggest that there will be no naked time this evening so I may as well make my monthly update now. As usual, the numbers in brackets after this months figures represent year to date:

Walks: 24 (143)
Skinny dips: 1 (11)
Bike rides: 0 (5)
SOC walks:1 (1)
Encounters: 0 (5)
Naked geocache finds: 32 (72)

Total free range naked time: 75:05 (288:26)

These numbers were significantly boosted by my "weekend off" at the beginning od the month and represent the highest naked of the home range total I have ever logged in a single month.

Fleshing things out a little:

The skinny dip was short (Ennerdale Water is fairly cool, even in "summer"). I was seen drying off there, sat on rocks with my back to the path, by a few people (two couples and one single) with no reaction beyond returning my greeting. Few people ever seem to get upset by the presence of a courteous skinny dipper.

The SOC walk was at the Hoo peninsular (starting in Cooling, near Gravesend) last Saturday. This is a favourite SOC walk for me and, as usual, once we got started there was really no need to cover up until the very end. (The group ethos is to avoid confrontation so we did cover up for the one couple we met on the walk, had I been alone I would have moved a little away from the path and allowed them some clear space to pass).

The cache finds were mostly on my weekend trip, a few in Rutland, Lincolnshire, West Yorkshire, Borders, Central, Strathclyde, Dumfries & Galloway, Lothian, Cumbria, Merseyside, Cheshire, Shropshire, West Midlands and Warwickshire. That filled in a few gaps on my map of geocache finds by counties :D

Have fun,


Ian.

Ian, have I ever asked about your skinny dips?  Are they mostly organised sessions in a public/commercial pool like e.g. Alton or do you have wild swimming places?  11 in 8 months suggests a regular venue.

I hate the term skinny dip - wild swimming is much nicer!

For some of "chunky dunking" is more accurate 😎

From what I know about ian they were all spontaneous swims on his naked walks.

I wonder if any were in the Thames as i have had many when boating.

Club swims would not be counted in a free range total and certainly not in as SN score...

No John, my naked swims are all free range. Last month was a single swim in Ennerdale water. A few in January (I don't recall how many off hand) were at Centre Parcs (just using the pool in the spa while no one else was there or staying far enough out of the way to be unseen) the majority were in Menorca.

I have swum in the Thames a number of times, mostly just a couple of hundred yards downstream from the spot where I met JOhn a few years ago.

Have fun,


Ian.

One of the few spots on the Thames where I haven't swum.  :(

Those swims sound the nicest of all.  No dodging around, no weeks of preparation and simply a part of a normal walk close-ish to home.

I have ben reading up on wild swimming lately (mainly as a result of that excellent video).  It's on the bucket list (near the top actually!)

Which video?  I've obviously been missing something.

I'm thinking John is referring to the post by Jbee on the 2nd page of the topic, "What's The Difference" under the Free Range Naturism board. You might have already seen it here on or about the date of July 10.

I remember this swimming conversation on 'Ye Olde Site' and said I preferred 'natural swim', as that state is really all you need to be clothed in. The aforementioned video is a fine example of that.
