Hmmm...
January held to just the two hikes mentioned at my site. I did make it out to Havarock several times. The weather has been beautiful, but it is an extreme drought. We had a rain...one rain.

Last Sunday, we hosted a sweat. Nine of us had a wonderful time of it. A guy new to sweats came with a couple and a friend visiting from California. She has been here to the sweat before, taken a walk to Havarock and was excited to return. She was walking up to my door as I nakedly opened it to go sweat all smiles. Also, a guy was here from Australia, a guest of a friend of ours. We played drums and I decided to show the Aussie an Arizona Agave Didgeridoo as we did a sweat. When the light got right, we all took a break between rounds and went to Javearock. We e were disappointed to find no javalinas in the drought suffering desert.

Now that I'm done with working, DF is gone most of this Feb. Hopefully we'll at least have a few days naked at the hotsprings, otherwise, I'll have to make use of the great weather and some free time.

Just to follow up on previous posts, I have been carrying on my "What conditions make it more comfortable outside naked in winter" investigations.
Last week 2 periods out on the garden one on a cold, dry, still nights and one a morning of similar weather.  In both cases, endurance of the cold was easy and nakedness refreshing and sensual in the cutting chill.  Comfort was fine for some minutes and no shivering.  Previous posts have reported that in higher humidity and temperature with moving air, the cold is not very nice or bearable and promotes shivering.
Coming from a warm interior after a little exercise improves endurance.

A local arts community hosts a 5th Tuesday event anytime there are 5 Tuesdays in a month.  January 2018 provide the opportunity for such an event.  So, on top of the Super Blue Blood Moon, we had a clothing optional celebration of the arts at the Brash Brewery, here in Houston. The theme for this event was precious metals.  We were instructed to bring an article of metal for the 'alter' and 'dress' with a metallic theme.  The temps were in the 40's F, so only the bravest bared all, but that was probably just under 1/2 of the 100 or so attendees.
They had fire pits outside and propane heaters inside, but not enough for everyone to huddle around.  I brought firewood, which gave me instant celebrity status.  For the alter, I brought the busted propeller from the sailboat adventure that ended in my busted feet.  A couple of days before the event, I walked into the garage seeking some inspiration for adornment that might be fitting.  I found my tow chain and started wrapping it around my body.  It fit perfectly as a kind of belt - suspender rig, with extra chain dropping across my hips.  AND!! The chain allowed me plenty of places to attach snap hooks for my keys, accoutrements bag, stein, etc.
They also had a food truck with the most magnificent hamburgers and sweet potato fries.  I know JBee and Karla are not into red meat, but these hamburgers were awesome!  The brewery specialized in hoppy ales, and I mean chest hair growing hoppiness.  Sharon, my partner, could not handle the house brews but they did offer one import.  Golden Monkey, by Victory brewers, Pennsylvania.  Golden Monkey is a smooth, mellow amber ale that goes down easily.  Belying the alcohol content.  It will sneak up on you.  She only had one, but that was enough for the evening.
They had a forging (metal works) demonstration, but the crowd was too thick for us to get very close.  We did get to exchange contact information with the metal smith and his partner as they happen to live near us.  She was decked out in a metallic breast plate that circled her breasts and flowed with metal feathers across her shoulders and back.  They gave me grief over my denim shirt (for warmth) so I ditched the shirt and wore only the chain for the rest of the evening.
Alas, it was a Tuesday and the evening passed so quickly.  We left about 11pm, but were awake at 5am to watch the Super Blue, Blood Moon as it set on Wednesday.   The morning overtook the moon before reaching full blood color (eclipse), but it was a great punctuation for a wonderful evening out.

Absolutely nothing at home because of visitors, etc. but I did get some discreet indoor skinny-dipping at the hotel where we celebrated the New Year.



After that I got four weeks on Fuerteventura, walking naked to the baker's most mornings for breakfast croissants, etc., dressing only for the last 50 yards to the shop.
I also got some decent nude cycling including a somewhat daring naked cycle ride to the bank cash dispenser although I wore shorts for the return ride through a busy area. I'm now feeling a bit frustrated as since coming home I have worked out a suitable return route avoiding busy part of the one-way system.

About 7:30 a.m. - the cycle ride started as soon as it was light enough to ride without lights on my rented cycle.

January was not a good month to even contemplate any free range time.  Besides the cold and snow the wife caught a strain of flu that required a hospital stay. She continues to regather her strength and I look forward to warmer days!

It would be so nice to go south for a naked winter holiday.   Its a shame they make you cover up for breakfast at that shop.  Do they allow bare feet or do you have to cover those too? 

We're still stuck in cold and freezing weather.  Probably be another month before its warm enough to go out.  Its   20F (-5c) here this morning, it may just break above freezing by afternoon.

I have no idea about bare feet but as the shop is a regular shop in a regular textile street it seems appropriate to dress.

Sometimes it is okay, if you ask first. They like to take ones money and don't discriminate. Quick in, quick out. Sometimes not.

Not so good,   since winter is slim pickins on good nude weather,   and Im not doing what id rather be doing.   But i have plans for lots of freeworking starting in march,   id like to attempt turning gardening into business,   a business i could work at full time while missing certain things made of fabric (good miss)    Im sitting in a truck in Wyoming,   cold wind blowing hard enough to throw trailers off the road.  My truck is heavy and not a solid wall,  so no danger here.   (open frame trailer loaded with cars)   dreaming of warm sunshine and fresh salads.

Just when it was beginning to look like we may have an early spring, we are getting hit with another arctic storm.  Bitter cold (0 F of -15 C) and high winds are forecast for the next few days.   A couple years ago a similar storm took out our electricity for two weeks.  The rest of February isn't going to be spring quite yet around here.
