Deep Creek Hot Springs Hike

I haven't actually blogged about a specific hike yet. I figure this is as good a time as any. Last Saturday I went on a hike with three different groups to a lovely spot east of Apple Valley in the San Bernardino mountains. Deep Creek is an extremely popular clothing optional hiking destination. I have met people from…Read more Deep Creek Hot Springs Hike

The Wild Child Grows Old

From a while ago....   I’m on a long solo hike. I’m naked - but the good part starts when I forget I’m naked - I just exist. It becomes the default state. The world shrinks to the sun on my back, cool wind across sweat, the relentless pendulum of my legs. The sounds of the birds…Read more The Wild Child Grows Old

Still more from the World Naked Bike Ride – LA 2017

About 40K walked across San Fran in the 2017 B2B. Lots of crazy costumes, maybe 1-200 nudies. We nudies were so dilute some people never saw one. One group was doing a count and had gotten up to 88 when I reached them. Never did find out the grand total. Most of the nudies are ordinary…Read more Bare to Breakers, 2017

Out of the closet and into the frying pan?

  I've been some kind of nudist as far back as my earliest vague memories. I don't know why. My home was in the land of the Church of God, cold winters, moderate summers and vast clouds of mosquitoes. My naked places were full of briars and sand burrs. Yet when my parents were out I'd live…Read more Out of the closet and into the frying pan?

The Wild

  I go to the wild to recover my sanity in an insane world. The deeper the better. My goal is not to see another human being. I'm sure there is another name for this, but I call it deep wilderness hiking. If there is not a human being for a mile in any direction…Read more The Wild
