OK. The gauntlet has been thrown down, so here are my numbers for June. As was usual, after the monthly figures I have included the year to date numbers in parenthesis.

Walks: 20 (119)
Skinny dips: 0 (10)
Bike rides: 2 (5)
SOC walks:0 (0)
Encounters: 1 (5)
Naked geocache finds: 15 (40)

Total free range naked time: 50:09 (213:21)

Some meat on the bones:

The bike rides were both home from the pub leaving around 22:30. On each occasion, I cycled until I was just out of town and then chucked my clothes in a bag to cycle the rest of the way naked apart from the footwear required to use the clipless pedals on my bike. My route is cross-country with no roads apart from one point where I have to cross a road, for which I usually cover up unless I am very late. I dressed just before entering the town where I live.

The encounter was around 06:00 with a jogger on a rarely used path. The path is bounded with a thorn hedge and pig wire either side for about a quarter of a mile and is generally very quiet, I have only met people here a handfull of times at any time of day and never before in the early morning. On this occasion, I was about a third of the way along the path when the jogger crested a rise in front of me. There was no time to hide or cover up so I simply called Hazel to me and made her sit while he went past. I offered my usual cheerful greeting and received a slightly breathless response and a thank you, presumably for keeping the dog out of his way. There was no particular reaction to my attire.

The cache finds were in Cornwall while visiting one of Carole's sisters. Seven were on a walk on Bodmin, including climbing Brown Willy, the remaining eight were the next day on a circular walk around the outside of the Lost Gardens of Heligan, a couple of miles from where we were staying. I was able to get away from Carole and sister because the plan had been for all three sisters to get together for some sister time. The other sister dropped out and I offered to drive Carole down rather than have her do a five-hour drive on her own (she has never done a drive over three hours). I really must make an effort to visit the Lost Gardens themselves one day; I wonder whether they could be persuaded to run an Abbey House Gardens style CO day?

I guess this would merit a little more information...

Have fun,

Impressive figures as usual Ian. I'm pleased you substituted "free range naturism" for "SN", a now defunct term in my opinion.

Since I stopped keeping records my reports can only be vague, perhaps I should start keeping them again. My June was slightly disappointing with not enough long periods of sun for my liking, except for the very end. July so far has been a different story and I now have a tan ready for anything. Now I need lots more sun!

With thorn hedges and pig wire(?) there was not only no time but no place to hide.

What are the temps at 6:00 am and how long are the bike rides?

Quite true. Once I start along that path I am committed as there is no way out though, as I said it is very rare to meet anyone there.

On the day in question, the temperature was 10C (50F) and dry. The bike rides are around 30 minutes if I take the direct route as I did both times last month (working the next day) but have been known to last up to 90 minutes on a night when I could afford to be late.

Have fun,


Ian.

And true to form here is the story...This is both report of July naked activity and also "Spouse progress update"

The weather has been very good in June/July and I have been very keen to spend as much time as possible in the correct dress.  However, now retired and both of us at home together a lot, one is a bit penned in by the dear wife, so I have been facing into my opportunities much more blatantly.  I was mowing the lower lawn and decided to be utterly uninhibited and not bother to dress to do the sections that are overlooked by an upper window next door because with shrubs etc in full leaf they can't really see the lower half of one.  After I'd finished I made me and the wife a nice cuppa and sitting in the sun remarked that I had mowed the lawn naked and she hadn't noticed despite sitting out in view of me turning round each swathe and doing it for about 20 minutes.  She tutted and moaned a bit but I had the opportunity to exemplify that my naturism is discreet and secret and part of that is about what other people expect to see.  Since she wasn't expecting it she didn't look and had she not been reading I would probably have not been so blatantly naked. 

I've also adopted saying to her when I'd be nude as in "When you next come out be aware I'll probably be naked so make your presence known and I'll cover up".  Generally she's accepted that if she's not there it's sort of invisible and if invisible it's ok.

So I've been pushing it as far as I can indoors and out.  We often have a bedtime cuppa and indeed a morning cuppa in bed.  When I go to make it I go naked and she often says "Put something on, for heaven's sake" or words to that effect, my reply has been 'No'.  This month whilst it's been an issue therefore I've taken the opportunity to explain how one is discreet and can easily avoid answering the door to someone whilst naked or being seen through a window.  I have pointed out my standby shorts and tshirt kept downstairs and on one occasion when the doorbell did ring early morning, how I could walk upstairs, get into a dressing gown and answer the door in adequate time with neither rush or panic or embarrassment.  Because we have been sitting out a lot together I have pointed out how it is not possible to be seen in the appropriate places.

She is still very uneasy if I disrobe next to her on the patio.  "Cover up, for heaven's sake".  On those occasions I cover my crotch with a small square of kikoy or drape shorts over it.  As one might expect a degree of toleration is emerging.  As I say, being naked around her makes her feel uncomfortable most of the time but acceptance of discretion when she's not there is improving.

There has been a tiny bit of discussion about my feelings about naturism and I have emphasised that I accept that she just doesn't get it but that she should understand that there is more to being naked than she realises and that none of it is perverted, sexual or even particularly unusual and being very emphatic that I'm not going to try and explain because it won't make any difference and it will lead to a debate that neither of us will win or even compromise on because we both have very strong views.  I think that did get her thinking though.  I have promised that I would never embarrass her knowingly.

There has also been something of a sea change which will feature in the next post as this one is long enough now!
