Nude Camping: Why You Need to Try It ASAP

Nude Camping: Why You Need to Try It ASAP

Ahh, naked camping. The wind in your hair, the soft grass under your butt, the sun touching every inch of your body, and having a full area you can roam around and explore that’s not your private back yard.

For many naturists, this is the idea of pure bliss: what better way to celebrate your love of nature than to be surrounded by it, in your most natural state?

If you’re the kind of person that runs in the opposite direction when camping is mentioned, you might want to have a look through this list. Naturist camping might be one of the best things you could do this summer!

Another good article.

Vice Article: I Went to a Nudist Festival for Millennials

I Went to a Nudist Festival For Millennials

 

Two days before NKD – a nudist festival for 18 to 35-year-olds in Dorset – I was warned by organisers British Naturism that clothed journalists hadn’t gone down too well in previous years.

“If you want to come and write about the festival,” they said, “you’ll have to do it naked.”

I wanted to find out what’s attracting young Brits to something we in the UK overwhelmingly associate with German pensioners, so I agreed, despite the fact I still involuntarily shudder whenever I remember the time – two years ago – that I accidentally flashed a hotel receptionist my boobs.

I shouldn’t worry, a friend had said; taking my clothes off in front of a load of strangers would be like “ripping off a plaster”. She was right: it was painful, and it was quick – so quick that I barely had the chance to google whether you’re supposed to put suncream on your vagina before I was unleashed into a field booming with 170 sets of bare genitalia.

To be honest the author sounds a bit like a idiot.

Summer Naturism for me.

Before the big move i was going to spend more time in my back yard, in the nude.  But of course that plan is now a bust. I had also found a open gay naturist campsite online some time ago. Well i went to check the website link late yesterday and of course the website is down! Can’t find it anywhere. *sigh* it looks like this summer is a bust as well.

Some afterthoughts.

After looking at two articles that I recently reblogged; I thought back to my experience at Carolina Foothills.  I came to realize that I got a very good dose of what was described in both of those posts when i went there.  The feeling i got there at CF was somewhat stifling. I still remember how my guide answered a lot of my questions with a sense of distaste.  I remember her saying that a number of their members wanted to keep the fact that they were naturists a secret because of their public lives.  I may be wrong about this; but the feeling i got from the staff and people at Carolina Foothills was that new people weren’t wanted unless they fit a very specific criteria, i.e. straight and straight laced married, white couples in their 40’s or older, preferably with their children being grown, out of the house and not with them.

My experience and the feelings i got from that time has led me to the conclusion that there may be a number of naturist clubs like this.   The clubs are where people come to be naked and get away from the world.  They see these secluded little nude venues as escapes and as their private little place in the world; and that no one else should enter and disturb the peace they feel.  Believe me when i tell you that i understand those feelings, but it doesn’t help the club very much if new people are made to feel like outsiders unless they fit some stringent criteria.

I now wonder if people like this could be considered at true Naturists?  I doubt they are nude at home unless it’s in the shower.  But i am not being judgmental, just wondering about these.  Are resorts that are much more open and well known, more welcoming of people.  Or is it just because its in the South and people are still so prudish.  I doubt i”ll find a answer any time soon.

Nude Hike: Nantahala National Forest

On Tuesday of this week i went on my first Naturist hike with a group. Nantahala National Forest was where we decided to do a 10 mile hike and we started around 11 A.M.. I thought it would be a piece of cake for me but in less then a mile i was so winded and tired that I had to stop. NO ONE TOLD ME WE’D BE HIKING UP A FREAKING MOUNTAIN!!! Suffice to say, i elected to turn back so the others could continue their hike in peace and at the pace they had set.  I was truly embarrassed but i knew that i couldn’t keep up with the others who were all seasoned hikers.

After about 20 minutes of rest my pride and determination got to me and i decided to continue on my own at my pace. I surprisingly made it 2 more miles before i had to turn back. I could have gone on much further but i knew that if i didn’t turn back at that point i might miss meeting up with the group when they came back down from the mountain. So i turned back, deciding that I would take pictures on the way.

The pictures truly don’t do justice to the area.  It is very beautiful and peaceful.  My trip down the mountain was quite enjoyable as the wind blew and i could feel the cool wind on my skin.  I was nude going up the mountain and going all the way back down to the river where we first started and it felt great.

I actually squatted in the river for a few minutes to clean my rear end off because after sitting on the trail times my butt crack had leaves and dirt all over it.  I was not going to put back on my shorts without a quick wash up.  As soon as i had finished putting on my shorts I heard someone behind, a family of four out to take pictures on the trail.  I was glad i had my clothes back on at this point.  Even though there is no federal statue or ordinance about being nude on Federal land, we had decided to be respectful and try to remain clothed near the entrance to the trail so as not to upset any families.

After I rested for a few minutes i decided to walk some more to keep myself entertained so i decided to follow the trail to a scenic waterfall called Laurel Falls.  I figured the family i had seen earlier had went that way so i decided to stay clothed.

Laurel Falls was a beautiful scene, even though i had to walk a mile to get to it.  I also caught up with the family i had seen earlier and talked with them for a bit.  After a few pictures we all walked back to the entrance to the trail and they left.

After the walk to the falls i was exhausted, hot, and kinda miserable so i sat down near the road and rested for almost a hour before once more i decided to do something with what i felt would be the last hour before the group returned and we left.  So i decided to check out the camp site i had heard one of the guys mention.  As you can see from the pictures above it was a nice, kind of isolated spot so I sat down and disrobed and spent the last hour naked before the guys returned.

When everyone came back we decided to drink a beer and check out the river a bit.  The beer tasted pretty good and we ended up laughing, joking and taking pictures of the river and each other.

After the fun and games we returned to the hotel, showered, and went to eat at a Mexican restaurant.  After that we sat around the hotel room naked and shot the shit for a few hours.  With one of the guys taking a few pictures of me sitting smiling.  He used my camera of course.

So around 12 A.M. we all went to our rooms and crashed for the night, saying our good byes that night because i knew i was going home in the morning.  I went with two of the guys to Hardee’s for breakfast the next morning and then I headed home.
