On the two trips I mentioned we had no other people in the camp sites. On a trip in early September there was only one couple in their late fifties on another site. We were able to set up a fair distance from these people, and spent our first day nude in our camp. On the second morning my husband rode through the camp grounds on his mountain bike, and when he came back he told me he must have caught the gentleman off guard as he was sitting in a lawn chair and had not quite had enough time to cover up the fact he was nude with a towel.We spent the day nude as usual. Late in the afternoon my husband spotted the gentleman walking his dog down the road, he was wearing shorts and sneakers. I disappeared in to our trailer but my husband just sat in his chair and made no attempt to cover up. The gentleman stopped talk to my husband for a few minutes and left. I watch as he walked only a short distance stopped, remove his shorts, and carried on walking now in the nude.My husband told me that the man told him that his wife and him picked this camp ground as it gave them the chance to be out nude, and that seeing we were of the same mind set was just wonderful. We spent four more days at this site and ran in to these people several times, them and us always nude. I think this activity is more prevalent then most people think.
I have mainly been a back yard nudist, however, I have long practiced skinnydipping in our local parks. Again like most in this post, I find the week days to be the easiest to practice my skinnydipping. On fairly rare occasions I will venture out of the motorhome nude for short jaunts to the trash area or down to the waters edge. Much more often I will stroll around wearing only a towel. I have plans to attend my first clothing optional area this spring and may come away more likely to spend more time outside in the parks close to home, perhaps carrying the towel rather then wearing it 🙂 Nudity – enjoy it with abandon but tempered by discretion.
We have been nude camping for over 20 years. ANC35228 if you use some common sense picking and setting up your camp you can be nude the entire time your there. We spent 14 days on one trip nude. We only dressed to go get wood, drop of payment for the site and two trips out for supplies. Like I said I think this is a great way for newbies and home nudists to get outdoors and enjoy them selfs without the crowds. As well as camping my wife and I like hiking in the nude, and I like to ride my mountain bike nude. Anniebare we have had people make comments to us while camping, hiking and I get them all the time because I ride my bike, mid week day mornings, on the country back roads around the area we live. None of the comments we have ever heard, were negative about our nudity. The comment made to you I would not take as negative. We believe lots of people like the nudist idea, they just need to stop thinking and start doing. The most common statement we hear is “I wish I had the guts to do that ( be nude)”. To which we reply,” What’s stopping you”. We can, and are, changing perceptions of friends, family and even strangers who see us enjoying some form of nudism. Being a little bolder with our nudity, in a none offensive manner, gets people thinking and talking about nudists. Anniebare, your being topless may have started a discussion where these guys, decide they too have to admit to enjoying being nude at home, and that if, like you, they want to be nude out camping, why not.
One day about 15 years ago I was camping at a lake with my dad and some friends. I was around 12-13 at the time and it was the middle of the week and not very crowded. One day me and my friend were walking back from the general store at the lake and took a short cut through some trees and ran into a nudist couple that were about in their 30s and their young son. Once they saw us they covered up in towels and kinda looked embarrassed. While my friend was drooling at the sight of a nude women, I thought it was no big deal and it would be a cool to hang around on the beach and soak up some sun without any clothes. We went back there the next day cause my friend wanted to see the women again but they were gone. Maybe moved somewhere else or left all together, but whoever they are I would like to thank them as they probably got me started on nudism.
