Bare to Breakers 2018 – final (NSFW)

That was the walk that was! I almost didn't do it this year. The day before our flight to San Jose I spilled boiling water on my left foot. That left a nasty blister the size of a silver dollar which of course popped the minute I put socks on. But I coated the wound thickly…Read more Bare to Breakers 2018 – final (NSFW)

Fish Canyon Narrows (NSFW)

Just north of Castaic Lake is a hike that takes one from pavement to spectacular wilderness in just a few miles. Let's head north on I-5 from Los Angeles. We leave the San Fernando Valley and climb through Newhall Pass. We continue beyond, passing through Santa Clarita and Magic Mountain and then Castaic Lake. The freeway starts to…Read more Fish Canyon Narrows (NSFW)

Saline Valley

Back in late October 2016, I went with a group to Saline Valley Hot springs. This is quite possibly the most remote location in California that can be reached by vehicle. There are several ways to get there but the only two I'd dare try without a full-up 4WD truck caravan are the North and…Read more Saline Valley

For a detailed description of last year's event, click here: Bare to Breakers 2017 There is a semi-almost-not-quite informal Bare…Read more Bare to Breakers 2018 – preliminary (NSFW)

Deep Creek Hot Springs Hike

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

Still more from the World Naked Bike Ride – LA 2017

This ride seems to be the gift that keeps on giving. The WNBR-LA is my most viewed blog post yet, by a wide margin. More photos are rolling in and some are too good not to share. There are all from the "LA World Naked Bike Ride" Facebook page where you will find the original photographer and…Read more Still more from the World Naked Bike Ride – LA 2017

Get Naked, Go Hiking

I love hiking naked. I enjoy the sensation of the sun and the wind on my full body. Love the way it liberates my soul and brings me into direct contact with nature. My ancestors of a hundred thousand years ago had this as their birthright. Today's world, in its perversity, would deny me this. (Just…Read more Get Naked, Go Hiking
