Guess who he's referring to :)

One man's year as a nudist



Quote
But when the wind turned cold and the snow started to fall, though, he did reach for some clothes. But other members of the group carried on regardless. He recalls one Scottish couple. "They were just walking down the trail going, 'Look, that pond's got ice on it.'"


This was during the NEWT in 2013. The incident he's referring to is actually funnier in reality. It was the first day of the holiday, we were on the ridge, the wind was howling, spitting with rain (no snow) and everyone but me either had clothes on or was partially dressed.  For me though it was a typical Scottish hill walk and I was going to be damned if I was going to put my clothes on when I was in my element! (I actually suffer in the heat rather than the cold)

We were walking along and he was asking me if I got cold. I explained that it's not actually that cold, it just feels that way because you notice the difference in temperature between a clothed part and a naked part which makes the bare part feel cold. This is not an issue if you're fully naked. Also if you stay active then your muscles generate heat . As I was saying this I spotted some weird pale blue thing on a puddle and asked before I could stop myself ... "Is that ice?"

Yay! My wife's bare bum has appeared on the BBC news website. Another tick off the bucket list.

I bought a copy of Naked at Lunch a couple of weeks ago. I havent had time, but to glance at it, but DF was laughing all afternoon and reading me quotes. Id bet that I will recommend it, she does. There were a couple of points that Id take issue with, so far, but he comes up with some very original fun stuff.

I remember DF and a went to the TNS western gathering a few years back. It was one of her first social nudity experiences as I remember. She put herself into the group photo for the event. By coincidence, the photo was on the cover of N magazine later that year.

I called her up and left a message singing the song by Dr. Hook, On the Cover of the Rolling Stone (see youtube). When she called back, when I told her that she was on the cover naked, the silence sounded like she had had a heart attack. Her imagination went wild. I teased her, and held back just what photo it was (we had signed releases). She was just a small person in a large group on the cover, and was towel wrapped and head turned on a page inside, during a class, no biggy, not really standing out, but we still laugh whenever that song comes up.

The distribution is only something like 30,000 naturists worldwide. Ive had my proper name attached to a couple of articles that I wrote in it, so not so very famously.

Others among us have published in that magazine.

I have done hikes in the cold, though not in wind and rain, and had similar reactions. It actually it has motivated me to experiment with cold hiking. The 1st time I did it I took extra clothes just in case I got myself in trouble. I didn't need them, but then again it was a sunny day that eventually made it up into the 50-60's F.

As you said, constant movement keeps you warm. Stopping for an extended period would probably get my attention.

Enjoyed the article.

I bought and read the book. Very good. Thank you for your participation and contribution. MHS seems to be publishing lots of articles that are snippets from the book on various sites. I really hope this book does some good in advancing naturism.

I did finish the book. It is hilarious, and informative. When we saw the author at TNS Western Gathering, DF got a signed copy to hand to a non-naturist friend of hers. She figures that it is a good introduction help explain what is going on for a textile.
