Hi JBG

My textile friend is a professional dog hiker. He will walk the more difficult dogs for two hours (rather than just 30 mins to an hour most do). He takes the dogs over the same hills and bump into each other maybe three times a week.

We will walk together and chat about everything. Today it was books about Romany life. Another time it was about Roman Legions in Scotland. We just chat and walk while our dogs play. We must look a strange pair, him wrapped up, me naked.

Your naked dog goes along, too! Your get-togethers are as it should and could be. When I hike with clothed friends, I contemplate which looks, or is more out of place, me or the other.

Well I was out in the hills yesterday in training for my 2 x 26 mile charity walks later this year. All but 30 mins I was naked. I bumped into two ladies who were probably in there late 60s. I helped them get to their destination and walked with them for an hour to get them to a recognisable spot. They werent in the least bit bothered that i was naked.

I've been waking my naturism with the spring although for about 2 weeks we have had spring weather (i.e. sunny, cloudy breezy, occasional rain) but with nearly winter temperatures (-25F at night up to 50F during the day - my newly planted babay tomato plants are dead of frost).  However I've been catching garden sun when it shines for short periods ….until I start shivering! :D  yesterday was sunny and would have been a good day to go out to my little patch of woodland to investigate but sadly I had to be indoors for a meeting on Skype relating to one of the organisations I volunteer for and when we'd finished it was raining.  Today is grey cold and cloudy but I did some naked lawn mowing although that lasted only a few minutes before I had to don my overalls to keep warm. 


However, last evening I went to the naturist swim which was nice - I think they've upped the pool water temperature a degree or two.  Unfortunately Yeldew was not there as he is a bit poorly so let's shout out to him to get well soon.  The swim club had their AGM last night and whilst, like many AGMs it was a bit of a formality, a discussion did arise as to whether the leisure centre could turn down the pappy pop music that blares from the speakers in the pool and other parts of the centre.  Evidently the music couldn't be turned down or off!  However, the members of the naturist swim club were informed that they could bring a cd of their own selections and this could be played.  A long and tedious discussion then ensued about what sort of music would appeal to the mainly senior citizens in the club that would be suitable and generally acceptable.  A number of song title puns for naturists then ensued all of which have by the time I type this, evaporated from memory.
SO FREE RANGE NATURISTS: it prompts the question - What music would be suitable for naturists?
You can keep your hat on by Randy Newman perhaps?
The Bare Necessities from Disney Jungle Book?
Can't think of any more - any suggestions? :)

April has not had an new major forays. I have been getting out into by backyard Tortolitas more frequently and we had a day at Redington Pass as the water was running. DF ran off to Morocco with her women's group for over two weeks. I thought to wander over to the last hot springs gathering of the season, but instead did some "ME time" around home, a fast with detox procedures to cleanse the body and reset my system. Did it all nude. Does that count?

Next month or two the heat will arrive and I have several options that I want to cover before the monsoons. I have yet to determine how much off work time DF has.

Nuduke, you have me stumped. Trying too hard, I went to the internet. All of those nude videos and all I come up with is this?


The Notwist, “Solitaire”
we like it
From that point of view
So we stay here
And bare until dawn everyday
And we stay here and bare every day


Naked in the Rain
Red Hot Chili Peppers (who liked to play naked on stage)
(It gets better after Verse 1)
[Verse 1]
Standing on the corner of civilization
There's a time there's a place for me
In a world where I can't be found
Cold and mean people give me the creeps
Going to the jungle where the elephant roams
Got to get away, going to make it my home

Losing my taste for the human race
Social grace is a waste of time
It's absurd when I look around
So sublime that we blow my mind
Naked in the rain with a killer whale
I can taste the salt when I lick his tail

[Chorus]
Naked in the rain
Doctor Doolittle, what's your secret?
Give it to me doctor
Don't keep it

[Verse 2]
I never met an animal that I didn't like
You can come to me, I won't bite
Don't you know dog is man's best friend
There is some love that you can't fight
Naked in the rain with black tattoos
Running through the woods laughing at the blues


[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
Listen to the talking heart in my chest
With this gift, good Lord, I am blessed
There's a lump and it's in my throat
I'm in love with the wilderness
Naked in the river skinny-dipping my way
In the waterfall, I just want to play

"Naked in the Rain" Red Hot Chilly Peppers

Neither of these would be much of an anthem for naturists....

April at least gave me the chance to get the camper out and have some free range time.  The weather was not totally cooperative but there were enough breaks to at least feel the freedom from being stuck indoors most of the winter. There are a few advantages of this particular place; the campsites are on a cul de sac which means one can see and hear approaching vehicles.  Also mid week before Memorial Day (last Monday of May) and Labor Day (first Monday of September) it is sparsely populated and quiet. The other advantage to this place is that I'm good friends with the Chief Ranger/Superintendent and he knows of my nudist ways.

So after setting things up I was carrying groceries into the camper when the ranger snuck up on me with an electric powered cart. It wasn't so much that  was naked as much as the temperature (in the 40'sF around 5C) in the early evening that made him question my sanity. He said he had seen the name on the campground register and wanted to say hello. Plus the usual asking if I'd like to become a campground host for the season; free site for 20 hours a week of work. Finally he told me that the Sheriff Deputies have started patrolling the park due to increased vandalism so maybe I should cover a bit at the campsite as he couldn't say if I would be cited or not. As he pulled away mentioning that he was going to start a fire at home as I made him cold.

So now the dilemma, do I stay naked and chance it or find a covering that still feels like I have freedom? Then I remembered some old t-shirts that were brought for cleaning purposes so I found one, cut down from the collar and made two flaps of sort then strung them with a bootlace through the loop left from the collar. Other than the bootlace around my waist I really couldn't feel any material. My buddy the ranger gave me a thumbs up when he passes the next morning so I guess it was acceptable in his eyes but never saw a deputy although I heard them pass many times.

There were a few walks in the woods but the rain and light snow flurries kind of put a damper on much free range time. But things are ready for  for summer and the next excursion will be in a few weeks!

This Spring has been hectic for me.  Among other events, the daughter moved back home, expressing her indigence to my choice of clothes (or lack there of).

I have been out on Galveston bay in the sailboat twice.  Well, once it was more of a motorboat.  No wind whatsoever.  But, it was sunny and nice.  The second trip was beautiful, sailing across the bay and back (10 - 12 kts either head or reach).  I motor out of the canal into the small bay, removing any coverings as soon as I exit the canal.  They reverse on return.  No dolphins on these early trips, but expect them to return as the water gets saltier.

I've also been able to get down to the Padre Island National Seashore (https://www.nps.gov/pais/index.htm) on 2 separate occasions.  The first time it was extremely windy.  You must park at the 'sticks' and walk into the refuge.  Families and textiles often come there to get away from the crowds, but they never venture far into the refuge.  The first trip (with the wind) there was only one car parked at the sticks.  No one was in sight, so I just put my stuff in a tote and marched my naked self on down the beach.  After about 1/2 mile, I noticed movement in the dunes.  I wasn't sure their preference for sunwear, so I put on my legal minimum.  As I got closer, I observed that he was indeed wearing board shorts.  So I added a quick wrap.
He stayed in his chair as I passed, neither of us making any attempts toward introductions or a chat.  After I walked an appropriate distance past him, off came the coverings, back into the tote.  I found a nice spot to lay out the sarong and relax.  I noticed that he had taken to walking down to the water and exploring the beach a bit.  There was too much distance to see any details, but the bright red color of his shorts was no longer present.

Anyway, I don't sit very long before the urge to move sets in.  So, I'm exploring the surf, beach and dunes for interesting objects of flora, fauna and human presence.  When I walked a ways his direction, he seemed to walk my way.  So I decided to close the gap.

When we were close enough, we chatted a bit.  He was from Minnesota and had belonged to a Naturist Club there.  He had heard that nudity was practiced here, but wasn't sure of the legality or tradition.  I explained what I knew and the experiences I have had.  Nice guy, enjoyable chat.
We both left a short time later, I had a long drive ahead of me.

The second trip was more enjoyable, the weather was more favorable, but it was a Sunday, so more textiles were near the sticks.  Once I got past them, the beach was once again, empty.  The water was warm enough for a swim, and i even body-surfed several waves.  No FRN converts or other encounters, but a nice day at the beach.

Rather enigmatic there! When young adults move back in with their parents, it's usually because they're "indigent", but the lady's attitude to her naked father isn't clear. Indignant, indifferent, indulgent, indulge-ing (one hopes)?

Me, I haven't done a thing outside naked since getting back from my trip. But it's warming up around here.

What a great week I've at at BN's SANER Region "The Gathering"
We've enjoyed a Burns in the Buff dinner, dancing, quizzes, games and so much more. And the so much more included a naked lunch at a pub which we filled, plus several walks. 

We had several encounters all without incident except for one, see below, plus walks in the local Forestry Commission, which had signs saying naturists may be seen. The one incident was a woman worried about one walker with she suggested a large penis who could upset local children. She rang the Police who informed her the event was pre-planned, inline with the law and they told her to go away.

A really great week

That Caribbean water and long beaches sounds very inviting. It has been decades now since being in them. Alas, Texas width is half the width of the United States. One of these days....
