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)

Deep Creek is an extremely popular clothing optional hiking destination. I have met people from…Read more Deep Creek Hot Springs Hike

Bare to Breakers, 2017 (NSFW)

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 (NSFW)

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
