Unlike Jbee and DF our 14 day road trip was not completely naked but did have almost enough with nine hikes, five kayak adventures, two encounters, hours of sunbathing plus plenty of naked drive time. Since most of it was done in Ohio once again it seems that I will add on to the "Heart of it all" in the trip reports once things are caught up again. Oh, and the misses outed me to friends only to find out they're home nudists.

JOhn, Jbee now nudewalker all going out on extended naked trips.

It's inspirational. We keep talking about a road trip after it cools off a bit. I'll make sure we pass through some remote areas.

Was that  surprise to her? Why do you think that she chose them to drop dime? A demographic of open mindedness, or perhaps just a notion within her mood one day?

I think this 'thing' we have is more prevalent in the population than people admit or as is generally recognized ...

Have fun, naked!

Nearly 4 million naturists in the UK (link)
I strongly suspect that the proportion may be similar on the other side of the puddle.

I tend to agree with the conclusion that there are more of us than the powers to be would admit. In fact the couple didn't describe themselves as nudists but just stated their going around the house with no clothes. I'll expand on the conversation when I post the trip report later this week.

I think the "going without clothes" rather than "we're nudists" is where lots of people are at. Despite everything we can find and read online, a recent newspaper report I saw (forget where) talked about nudism declining in the UK. My bet is that "organised" nudism is declining, people less likely to join clubs and belong to structures, more likely to be a lot more relaxed about not wearing clothes all the time, especially around the home - or maybe they always have been and now they're more prepared to admit it?

A TV programme here a couple of years ago (avaialble on YouTube) "My Daughter the Teenage Nudist" laid it out quite clearly that "young people" (whatever they are) will happily get theri kit off but they won't join a club, particularly if it's full of old fogies (over-30s).

I totally agree with you as I am beginning to see the "why pay for it when you can have it for free" mentality among younger people. Also there was a report on TV the other day where more and more young adults are still living with their parents, are burdened with student loans and are under employed for their education and skills. Not being familiar with the UK but knowing how our adult children with families struggle it's no wonder any "organized" group stays in existence. Just the idea of paying for life leaves little for extras even vacations; let along dues and fees for a nudist resort.

When I was "young people" the kits came off of of most, as she concludes, but that had much to do with the times (late 60's through 70's). Many of those people became parents and missed the bridge in the perception as natural when applying that to their child raising. My sampling is small, and inconclusive, but I have noticed previous socially nude guys becoming fathers protective of daughters, total hypocrites. Roots, their standing in community there are many factors leading to neo-consevative thinking and actions with age. Many, trying to do what is right with no road map, revert to their parents modeling, some completely embrace it. It is difficult to know without considerable polling. But polling is better and it is in. Soon TNS will show results in the U.S. and California more specifically. There are no nude around the house polls that I know. There is only other credible information showing and supporting the fact that it is healthy.

There are many kinds of home nudists. The "when alone","With wife","not with kids","with kids", "seasonal","casual", "occasional",or lifestyled, or us.

We speculate and educate out guesses, but we know that every body has a naturist inside. They just don't know it yet.

I have wondered this myself. I suppose itís a result of choosing to being naked at home but not wanting to anywhere else. If this is the case, one can only hope that as these younger folks get older, restrictions will begin to lessen.

Kids donít want to be around old people, naked or clothed. I donít see that as significant. Interests differ. When they get old, itíll be the same with them.   O-bla-di, O-bla-da!

I wouldn't call 'em hypocrites, Jbee. It's more like the difference in attitude from when you were a teenager and wanting to be with your favorite girl or boy friend, and letting your daughter go out with a teenage boy with as many raging hormones as you had at the same age.

You know exactly what is going on in that kids mind. It's the parental protection kicking in. Perfectly normal. The trick is, I have learned, is teaching them correctly and then letting them show you that you don't have to worry. Verrry hard.

Raging hormones? You mean the ones that have been socially directed to get 'em naked, get more, voyeuristic thrills, Playboy bodies, big tits rule, let's get naughty and that means nekkid, I presume. Although daughters are subjected to the same kinds of socially directed hormones, they need to understand that they are responsible for what happens, not over protective dads trying to teach them an unhealthy unrealistic vision of their bodies and humanity. I suppose that there were those of us who were normally curious and got the "socially nude and natural" lesson, and then, there were those that had it wrong and didn't, who would in turn misguide their children.

 I'm sure that I'm wrong to generalize about many of these dads as hypocrites. I am correct about some of the hypocrites that I know. Lots of types out there.

I recommend reading "Growing Up without Shame." Using more communication, less control and manipulation, starting at an early age. Otherwise, kids get taught by what's out there, to be what's out there.

I'm convinced it's the raging hormones that tend to make them so body shy and my comfort about my daughter was that I'm sure they were just as incompetent in seduction as we were at that age.

I remember the girls being the more aggressive ones AT FIRST. When I got into my heyday in my twenties, I always just made myself available and let them make the first move. Young females needing protection from aggressive seductive male hormones has been a myth in my experience. I admit that I was inept until around 19 and then made up for any notion of lost time. Just sayin' that was my experience, a lot of experience and I tend to base my assessment of the situation on that. Daddys are sooo easy to snow!!!

It sometimes depends on the culture that they adopt.  A good girl getting naked destroys the disguise. They do it with the boyfriend that they choose to be discrete, a dark secret to keep. That's high school stuff. I've hung around frat and those hot sororities chicks in little black cocktail dresses and those good girls get very wild in mixed groups. Hippie chicks get to run around nude and free, but that doesn't reflect their sex life. One associates flashing and nekkid as sexy period. The one with honesty, body acceptance nude doesn't make that association, necessarily. They all can't help but notice that they get a reaction from the guys.

How many women, young and old, that I have know to be socially nude and then use clothing to reel in the same guys that they spent the day naked is beyond count. Both sexes use their whiles and mannerisms when the stuff kicks in.

August has reached its end and it seems that summer nay have done the same (if it ever really started). Despite the rather disappointing weather, August has proved to be my best month ever for logged free range time (as always the year to date figure is in parentheses):

Walks: 21 (164)
Skinny dips: 0 (11)
Bike rides: 0 (5)
SOC walks:0 (1)
Encounters: 0 (5)
Naked geocache finds: 12 (84)

Total free range naked time: 76:26 (364:52)

There was no "big event" this month, however I had lots of little runs out to find geocaches that I wanted to complete various challenges (Jasmer (find at least one cache that was hidden in each month since geocaching began), English counties (find at least one cache in each English county - this will then extend into Wales, Scotland, Ireland...), find at least one cache for each difficulty / terrain combination) and so on.)

Have fun,


Ian.
