So, I see that getting naked and drinking BEER with friends is a viable cure for a hot day, perhaps one of the best....
Jbee

Jbee, John and I have not too long ago, tested your theory, arriving at  convincing and positive results.   A few years back John, myself, Richard Collins, and a close friend of his spent a great day enjoying the beach at Cuckmere Haven and hiking the Seven Sisters in Sussex (England).    After a pleasant and near total day of nudity, we adjourned for several hours to the central village green in East Dean and sat out naked at an open table in front of the Tiger Inn enjoying BEER, as served in a proper British pub.    Doing these things precisely in the manner just described above, FRIENDS absolutely essential to this experiment,  is a viable cure for many discomforts in life.     When darkness had thoroughly overcome our little party, and realizing that we must get back to London before last train, we all finally arose and strolled still naked, across the village green back to our friend's parked car at the far end, and drove off toward the station.   Alas, the train might not have taken us naked.    We did not venture to test this one remaining theory that night.

Sounds familiar, Dan. I seem to remember seeing pictures about a group of guys sitting in a pub. It might have been one of John's posts.

Was that here on FRN or on the old TSNS site. I canít recall.

Ok, I had to go look this up!

scrumpy [Urban Dictionary]
A very potent type of rough cider. Normally associated with South West England, although the county of Kent also produces some good stuff. A good scrumpy normally has an alcohol content of at east 7% by volume, be full of semi liquid apple pulp and taste like appley vinegar. It is suprisingly refreshing and can be consumed in vast quantities; providing the drinker does not want to use his legs for the next five hours. Was often given to wurzels in lieu of payment by landowners in an attempt to keep the workers compliant.

usage: e.g. "Arrrrgghhhr yoouzzsh moi bessshhtisss mate yoush are." (a phrase often heard from the lips of scrumpy drinkers.)

wurzels; according to Wikipedia: The name of the band was dreamt up by founder Adge Cutler. It appears to be short for mangelwurzel, a crop grown to feed livestock, and 'wurzel' is also sometimes used in the UK (perhaps only as a result of the band's name) as a synonym for 'yokel'.

More of the, ďvast and varied, creative, and colorful English language.Ē :D

The Wurzels' particular "genre" of music was named Scrumpy and Western after the group's first EP of the same name, issued early in 1967. Scrumpy is a name given to traditionally-made cider in southwest England, popular amongst The Wurzels and their fans, and frequently referred to in their songs

All of this, of course, reminded me of applejack:
A traditionally American liquor distilled from fermented apple cider, traditionally using a method known as freeze distillation, in which cold temperatures are used to freeze out the water in the 5-7% alcohol cider to the point that it is 40-50% alcohol. The more times you freeze it the higher the ABV.

. . . or raisinjack which is similar with raisins instead of apples,

ABV above 10-11% tends to kill the yeasties. So to get that high ABV the shadetree distillation process is used. Get rid of the water. You can ferment any fruit if you add enough sugar.

Applejack is also ther name of Kentish apple brandy which was oncebwidely produced and consumed in the county and beyond.
To the best of my knowledge it was stamped out, together with many otheer traditional spirits by Cromwell's puritan commonwealth. Scotch whisky and Irish whiskey survived because the puritan armies never effectively took over the remoter regions.

If John got any photos of this session up, it would likely have been on TSNS site as this took place summer of two or three years ago.     We are headed back to the UK again this summer to nude hike in Wales, Austria and Bavaria.     Might even be able to start another naked pub crawl.

I found a post by John, seen here, but Dan isnít mentioned. So Iím not sure if that is the one.

Unfortunately, all of Johnís photos that are on Dropbox are no longer available for viewing.

No Duane, our day in Sussex of which I speak was not a day out with the Wramblers.    From what I can gather from John and from Richard Collins, the Wramblers as a group are not likely to officially include a naked pub crawl as an after party for any of their regularly scheduled hikes.    I have not yet had an opportunity to participate in one of their regular hikes though I would love to do so in order to experience one dimension of what you guys here who hale from the other side of the pond are up to these days.    Alas, for our visit to England this coming summer our schedule once again does allow time.     Our hike and the following activity that day three summers ago was loosely planned by us and wholly unsanctioned by any formal organization.    It was simply a day with friends suggest by John and myself and plotted by Richard Collins.     There is photographic record of our time on the  beach at Cruckmere Haven and our hiking across the Seven Sisters, but I'm not sure there is anything from our time on the village green....too busy with BEER.

Yes indeed, that's just what we did. The local brew is a fairly strong beer called "Legless Rambler" which it seemed necessary to sample! This was the scene, and you can see the pub sign quite clearly over the door:

It's very annoying, but Dropbox must have felt they were giving away too much, and they changed their system to disallow "hotlinking" or delivering content such a images based on a URL in a web document. Now I use Imgur and it's pretty good. I've gone back to that Naturist Ramblers report and shifted the pictures, but it wasn't the walk I did with Dan, anyway. As he says, our trip with the Naturist Ramblers remains to be done some time in the future.

I'm flattered to observe that some of my pictures and text from that trip report have ended up on the Naturist Ramblers site too!

I was browsing that site from links I saw in a couple of your posts.
I read the introduction about the group and it certainly looks appealing.

How entirely interesting, JOhn!
Thanks for that one for the trivia bank!

Iíve always heard that distilling and aging of whisky was perfected because the wine grapes wouldnít grow in the British climate. True?

. . and they needed something for relief.
Necessity is the mother of many cherished traditions!

That is basicly true, Duane, but in practice distiling alcoholic drinke has a long history throughout the world.
Brandies are distilled wine, marc and grappa from fermented grape skins, calvados or applejack is distilled cider, vodka and potcheen from potatoes (with other additions), and whisky in all its variations from unhopped beer (malt, barley or wheat depending on the location).
I'm not familar with tequila but I believe it is distilled from a fermented local fruit.

In other words all spirits were distilled from whatever fermented alcoholic base is available locally.

The best tequila is made from the Blue Agave. Quality is still dependant on the QC no matter the distiller, but when it is made with the Blue Agave it is supposed to be the best.

So I’m told.
