I wasn’t raised in a nudist family but I ‘d go skinny dipping as a child growing up on a farm. When I returned from the Gulf War I decided life was too short not to try something I was always interested in. So when I discovered about a nude beach near where I was stationed I went. I had a terrific time; it was a very liberating experience.
I continued going and made friends. Over time I joined a club and then began going to nude resorts. I found that the people there were so open and honest and non judgmental. I found that there were so many others just like me there and no one was there to check out others, just for the pure pleasure and joy of relaxing without clothes. I know that may sound hard to trust but that’s the facts. We made amazing friends and my family became members to that club and even now we keep our membership at a closeby club.
I just wish the public could see that we’re ordinary, regular people who only chance to relish relaxing without clothes on our time off. My grown daughter has plenty of self-confidence about herself and portion of the reason is that she knows what real women look like and does not feel insecure about herself. That is an immediate consequence of her being raised in a nudist household. I think that if more people tried it they would see what I’m referring to.
Hiking In The Nude
Having experienced public nudity on occasion previously, I’m no stranger to that feeling of once experienced, never going back. Nonetheless, I started noticing stories about trekking naked outside west and in the Alps, first in Wikipedia, then elsewhere, seven years back.

Check itWhat a simple, sensible idea which could not possibly fly on the east shore, or so I believed. I had to try it (bucket list in case you will). Like skinny dipping in the wind instead of in the water. So I headed to Vermont where I could locate suitably distant terrain and legality. Well all I can say is the fact that the encounter was transforming, like that of discovering the liberty relaxation and peace of nudity for the very first time, all over again.
Since that fateful instant, I’ve hiked, backpacked, and camped hundreds of miles on the distant trails of the northeast, in all sorts of weather. I have gone for as long as a week without putting on clothes in the outback during the summer. I’ve trekked naked for hours at a time in the snow. I one day hiked in the nude officially and without troubling anyone, in a city (Toronto…CO beach and immediate environment off season in November).
Being in the nude in the wilds is a life affirming outdoor activity that has few competitors in my humble view. It sharpens your senses and your knowledge of your natural environment and those creatures that share this little part of the universe with us. Also you soon realize how incredibly adept our bodies are, as delivered by our Creator, at accommodating the challenges of our environment. Perspiration direction is a wind. Creatures of the woods come closer and take your presence more readily. I once had a moose cross my path, and pause, not more than three arms lengths in front of me. We stared at each other for the better part of three minutes, both calmly taking each others’ right to be there. Finally I spoke up and apologized to Mr Moose for startling him, exactly the same greeting that I normally use in my infrequent meetings with fabrics. With that he took one final unconcerned look at me and ambled away, crashing through the underbrush.
Long distance hikers are accepting, even supporting, of my taste. I pick my times and places, in order to avoid having to clarify the numerous pleasures of hiking in the buff to anxious parents with children in tow. Section of the ethos of this form of outdoor recreation is recognition and respect for the feelings of others less comfortable with the idea. I go out of my way to avert “clothed confrontations”. Alas, life is not perfect and those occasional “sightings” by http://nudist-picture-club.com , of my unadorned body have been enjoyable and positive events. After seen, I don’t cover up(sends incorrect message) Freehiking can be a societal or a solo action. It suits my lifestyle and work schedule as it can be tucked into my days away, spontaneously as time permits, most any time of the year.
Nudism encourages creativity. Freehiking is worth adding to your bucket list. – Dan
I was in the park in a wooded region. It was concealed. I got my clothes away and took a walk. It was a wonderful experience. I kept doing it.
My first social-nudist encounter was at a clothing-optional hot tub in Quad Cities, Iowa. Before arriving I understood that the tub would be Clothes Optional, but I believed that meant that a few of the people would choose the option of being bare and some would choose the choice of wearing a bathing suit. I would decide to do the latter, although I really had no issue seeing public nudism .
When I was brought to the bath, I saw that EVERY ONE of the people in the bathtub was nude. WHAT TO DO??? I thought “What the heck. I’ll attempt it once.” Within 30 seconds I was hooked for life.
I spent the next 17 years visiting every nudist resort and nude beach that I could squeeze into my small holiday time.
Eventually, in 1999 I retired and I have lived for the past 10 years at a clothing-optional resort in AZ (SLR). The host of the hot tub celebration that started all this, moved here three years ago from Iowa.

My First Time
I was a teenage boy in the mid-60’s and I just got out of the shower. My mom was watching TV in the den and I wondered what her reaction would be if I went around naked. So I went in the room where she was and sat down right across from her. She asked me why I was not dressed and I told her I was more comfortable not wearing clothes. She said that was okay with her if I needed to be a nudist.
Then I went in the back yard and sun bathed naked. I’ve been a nudist all these years but my wife doesn’t understand it. I go naked in my home as frequently as possible, even when her friends visit.
