No plans for a visit to Sherwood Forest at the moment but if you ever came to the UK and visited us, I could show you it (less than an hour's drive).

Why would anyone need to sneak around in their own house? Maybe the mother-in-law is in town?

I have to be in mouse mode to get up and pee when granddaughter in visiting. Her parents just don't get it.

Sneaking is an outside of the house thing, a neighbor thing, a don't get arrested thing.

Sneaking is great fun. We used to sneak around after curfew, sneak out of the house at night.  Older, we used to go down to the border and sneak across back and forth for kicks. Intoxicated back in the 80's, we walked naked through the suburban neighborhood late at night. It was scary, our perception of the circumstance and the law made it so. Taking risks is like gambling, fun, but nekkid, there is no money to gain and the risk can be high stakes in some states.

Still, we incorporate stealth and sneaking around in order to be free range outside of the boundaries of resorts, inside houses and free beaches. It is a necessary and good skill to have.

Sneaking: From "The Secret Naturist Handbook."

With many outings taking place during the night, for many secret naturists, it can be difficult to get outdoors without disturbing other members of the household. Of course, a good excuse to be out and about can be used but this is not always suitable or desirable. Sometimes, you just have to be sneaky.

One of the most problematical locations for sneaking about is the bedroom. Getting from the bedroom to the external door can be a real problem at night, especially in the dark.  No-end of things can seem to make the most incredible noise when you are sneaking about but most of these can be easily remedied.

Doors are the most likely household item to have a potential to make noise with the handle and hinges being the most obvious cause. An easy way round this is to leave the door ajar, thus avoiding any need to turn the handle. Noisy hinges can be cured with a quick squirt of WD40 or similar. Locked doors should have their mechanisms well lubricated to keep noise to a minimum. Another source of noise, are keys. A most effective tip is to reduce the number of keys on the key ring to one, thereby reducing the chance of the keys jingling. These tips can also be applied to gates as well.

Floorboards are probably the worst culprits for making at noise when sneaking about. However, the solution is quite straight forwards and easy, so long as you don’t have to move furniture to get at them. Squeaks can often be cured by the liberal application of talcum powder in the joints. Loose boards should be screwed down using 50mm screws instead of nails to grip the boards securely. Pre-drill the boards to stop the wood splitting. Remember though that there may be cables or pipes below, so lift the board first to check this out. Generally speaking, services should be routed along the centre of floorboards, but this not always the case. You have been warned!

Creaking stairs should generally be treated as you would floorboards. Locate the creaking joints by removing any stair covering and stepping on each step in different places across the tread. You may be able to carry out repairs from the underside of the stairs if it is not covered with plaster. Loose tongue and groove joints between the riser and the front of the tread can be repaired by squeezing wood glue into the gap and forcing it along the joint with a fine-bladed knife. If you can work from the back, add a triangular-shaped glue block to bond the tread and riser together. If you have to work from the front, drill and countersink at least three screws into the edge of the tread and into the top of the riser to force the pieces together.

Sometimes treads and risers will shrink and become loose within the housing joints cut into the sides of the staircase. If you can get to the back of the stairs, you'll see that each rise and tread is held in its housing with a timber wedge. If the stair is creaking, the wedge may have become loose. Remove the wedges and chip away any old glue and debris. Remember to wear safety goggles to protect your eyes. Apply wood adhesive to the housing recess and, having cut some new wedges, which are the same size as the old ones, tap these in with a hammer to tighten the joint. If you have to work from the front, drill and countersink holes along the edge of the loose part and screw into the sides of the stairs at an angle. Note: Don’t try this if you are inept at DIY!

Other Hints & Tips:

•   Walking barefoot makes less noise than when wearing footwear.
•   Have your secret naturist kit, footwear and clothing ready for use.
•   Know your way around in the dark. Practice makes perfect.
•   Check for objects that are out of place and may cause you to trip, for example, cats, dogs and children’s toys.

Trip reports / Re: Nude Across America Pt. 5: Green Aliens Everywhere

Okay, a cop comes across a couple of naked alien tourists walking down the street. What would he do? Call for backup? Pull a gun? Arrest them, insisting that they put on pants? Most laws state that they don't want our genitals exposed, but all of those aliens appear to have no genitals!!!

If we have no genitals, or could leave them in a box at home (a jewel box of course) could we all walk around naked without harassment?

The world was so different all of that day, and much of the trip, that I could have been on another planet. Being naked, I suppose that I would have been pretty much an alien to the local authorities and expect to be treated as such.

Now, if a alien species did land here, we could expect them to be treated in the same rude unfriendly aggressive judgemental manner.

Free Range Naturism / Re: Naked on the Subway.

I wondered who the jack boot nazi following him with the camera was. You see barefoot guy, but hear stomping noise at first. Then, I noticed several people drinking openly in public. Then an inordinate number of gay men. It must have been done near the Gay Festival in Berlin.

I zipped through the the other video, and found them to be numerous, with that gay thing going on, including the same guy holding hands walking with another gay man. Some at the festival, too. I began to wonder if it was male version of nude-in-public.com. There are a couple where a woman gets into the act. Then another three of them doing some kind of art project.

The public reactions were interesting to me. The context was not in as many regular people settings. It does, I think, show how walking about nude in public minding your own business would be impossible. It is an attention getter, in an urban area and poepl will react. Because there are so many people, the percentage that do will be a larger number.

I suppose that the streets are not quite ready for nudity even in Berlin, but the more people see, it the more of a norm it will be. What I see at Trader Joe's on these hot days on the college girls would be hooker attire and risque in the past. It is okay, not frowned upon, acceptable, nobody says anything, folks subtly check the girls out.

Naked on the subway.   No tan lines.
Same guy has other videos of urban nudity on Vimeo

Berlin, Germany.   Everyone is curious, some take a picture, but nobody seems to cause him troubles.

At least the “aliens” were naked even if you couldn’t be!

Getting inti Missouri, we contemplate our naturist heritage and literary references and modern day reactions to it. With all of this information available, people just seem to remain ignorant, held captive by their beliefs, wired at a young age and clouding the ever judgemental conceptions of man.

We get naked and look back at a simpler time.

Did you find yourself thinking about putting on pants?

I haven't worn pants in at least four months, just shorts. And I don't take any in my bag on these hikes.
