General Naturism Discussion / Re: New President likes to skinnydip
« on: January 06, 2021, 06:05:07 PM »
I'm not really surprised at this, considering that we are about the same age and grew up in much the same blue collar environment. It's been said that skinny dipping was a rite of passage in our area but it was really a product of necessity. We didn't have swimming pools, and honestly I don't think bathing suits were deemed a necessity to growing families where money was tight. My first suit was a hand me down from an older cousin when my family took their first vacation.

I doubt that there will be much of a shift toward naturism. There are still too many politicians beholden to the evangelical base to allow that kind of change.

Free Range Naturism / Re: Glamping

Glamping is what I do with a 32 foot (roughly 10 meter) travel trailer. I'd much rather "rough it" a bit more but concessions must be made in order to keep peace in the marriage. So the plus side, she gets to remain comfortable in a heated/cooled environment with creature comforts. And I get to roam freely in nature so I consider it a win/win situation. I will be eagerly awaiting to read of your adventures.

We came across a g birder this weekend i the Huachuca Mountains. He said he wasn't concerned when he saw my starting to unravel my sarong. I said, "it's my birthday."
DF added, "It's his birthday suit."
 He said that he was more worried about the "plaque" and he couldn't be hurt by naked people.

I remember my encounter with a birder. He was more concerned with my encountering  insects and briars than my nakedness. He was dressed with long sleeves, long pants and the pant legs tucked into his socks.

I had an e-mail offering 10% off. Maybe contact them at to ask?

Just wanted to add a short note here. Nick & Jefferson the Kiltedbros have had to close their retail store due to the state being on a stay at home order and only essential retail like food and pharmacy are open. I ordered another kilt from them in order to support them and help with cash flow at this time. So if any of you are considering one this would be the time to support the

My pleasure Jbee. I now own two of them which now gives me a total of five kilts in total, and one pair of jeans.  I do have to admit that with one of the Kiltedbros kilts there an issue with the velcro holding under stress.  Overall I am satisfied and will order another one soon.

None of the schools in my area were rich enough to afford a swimming pool but I do remember going to the Y to swim and until the middle of the 60's we swam nude. As for the polluted swimming holes, all of us in my neighborhood skinny dipped well into out teen years.

General Naturism Discussion / Re: Coping with cold weather

Due to the fact that my wife has health issues our home is kept warmer than what most people do. So with all the additional insulation and other weatherproofing plus a high efficiency furnace I can be quite comfortable nude indoors. As for free range anything over 50F with no wind is tolerable to me. It's just with no tree or leaf cover there are not many places to go outside.

BlueTrain, being that I have some backround in sewing I took a measuring tape and measured the length and found the 20" drop to be perfect for me as it hits just above the knee.  Also they are worn higher on the hip more nearer the belly button.

After a two week camping trip which if I had to be covered up the kilt was the go to choice I have the following observations.

 First; I did get quite a few complements from the fairer sex, in fact one who was present when the wind got a hold of it and my hands were occupied commented on the lack of anything underneath. So being lightweight it will fly away in the breeze.

Second; I found the Velcro started losing it's grip after a few days of wear. I don't know why for sure and I'm hoping that a washing will restore it.

Third; be sure to follow the instructions on how to measure and if in doubt go a size larger. I think that may have been some of the Velcro issue.

Fourth; the belt loops are a nice touch as it held things in place once the Velcro gave out.  Plus it does give a finished look for everyday wear.

In conclusion, I feel it's a garment that serves it's purpose and I did  order another one, one size larger. The lightweight material was comfortable enough in 90F heat and humidity. We have another trip planned soon so I'll update on the new kilt then.

Maybe as we have been more confident we have become more daring.  I remember on the old sites when questions were raised such as how far have you been away from your clothes.  Or have you hiked without a net? Both questions seem odd now as I'm so familiar with the places I go I could be miles away and no ntet so to speak.

Funny you should mention memories. I think one of the first trip reports her was a camping trip where we had the campground to ourselves. Once I figured out the restroom and shower cleaning crew schedule I was able to spend most of that stay naked. We'r returning to the scene of what some people would consider a crime next week.

Free Range Naturism / Re: How was your month for Free Range Naturism?
« on: September 05, 2019, 03:18:30 AM »
This August was one of the epic months as it pertained to free range, stealth or just plain naked walking! The powers that be, that is the local wildlife management people cut the roads and pathways in our local areas so with an easy drive from home I have been ale to get my 10,000 steps almost daily. Since I have two areas to chose from it never gets boring as the routes can vary day to day. On top of that we spent a great deal of time on the road so I got to revisit some old haunts. Back in June and early July many of those trails were submerged by high water but now although wet and muddy at least passable. As I once posted many of those trails are cut about six feet wide (almost 2 meters) and grass covered. So I could walk barefoot as well as nude and enjoy giving my feet a mud bath only to clean them in the grass.

Campsite nudity was limited as we were in an open field in one area we visited. There used to be more cover but the Emerald Worm Borer did the number and destroyed a number of trees. My hope is the reforestation program will fill in the gaps and at least offer some shelter or screens. So in the 31 days of the month there were only five that didn't offer some sort of outside activity. Although a few thunderstorms did curtail the duration of some walks.

Jbee, my apologies to you and DF. After all I'm sure there area few more whiskers on my face.  The point was the perception that people would have. Here it would be hippies, in your neck of the woods something different. Even with the interactions with BlueTrain over the years the difference in attitudes from one part of the state to another.

I feel that while out hiking or walking naked there is a connection with nature. Senses are heightened but only because we have become one with nature. Other people, mountain bikers or ATV riders are out of place and become a nuisance. There is an excitement, as if we're getting away with something society would frown on, a stealth game where we are the winners.

Overall I have become braver in my pursuit of being Free Range but still lean to the side of caution.  You can get a feel for the area by talking to park rangers for example areas of little use or places where you would likely encounter families. Also, as in the case earlier this spring, a ranger friend of mine told me about the increased presence of sheriff deputies to combat vandalism. Translated things he might overlook like discrete nudity at the campsite, the deputies might not.

Also, as John P pointed out, being with friends not only increases your courage but a group is not seen as much as a threat as a single male.  Same with Jbee and DF, not seen as a threat, just a couple of old eccentric hippies!

Yes Duane that is the one. Since it will be a dual purpose as both a cover up and something cool to wear at the campsite if necessary my wife had the input as to the color. I still want to take a trip to Cleveland and visit the store. Along with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and a few ethnic restaurants that have been recommended.
