My Story

I wasn’t raised in a nudist family but I ‘d go skinny dipping as a kid growing up on a farm. When returned from the Gulf War I decided life was too short not to attempt something I was always interested in. So when I learned about a nude beach near where I was stationed I went. I had an excellent time; it was a very liberating experience.

I continued going and made friends. Over time I joined a club and then started going to nude resorts. I found the folks there were so open and fair and non judgmental. I found that there were so many others just like me there and no one was there to check out others, just for the pure enjoyment and enjoyment of relaxing without clothing. I know that may sound hard to trust but that is the truth. We made great friends and my family became members to that club and even now we maintain our membership at a closeby club.

I just wish the public could see that we’re normal, regular folks who just happen to enjoy relaxing without clothes on our time off. My grown daughter has tons of self-confidence about herself and element of the reason is that she knows what real women look like and does not feel insecure about herself. That is a direct consequence of her being raised in a nudist family. I think that if more people tried it they would see what I’m talking about.

Hiking In The Nude

Having experienced public nudity on occasion previously, I’m no stranger to that feeling of once experienced, never going back. Yet, I began seeing narratives about trekking naked outside west and in the Alps, first in Wikipedia, then elsewhere, seven years back.

What a easy, legitimate idea that couldn’t possibly fly on the east shore, or so I believed. I needed to attempt it (bucket list in the event you will). Like skinny dipping in the breeze instead of in the water. So I headed to Vermont where I could locate suitably remote terrain and legality. Well all I can say is that the experience was transforming, like that of discovering the liberty relaxation and peace of nudity for the first time, all over again.

Since that fateful moment, I’ve hiked, backpacked, and camped hundreds of miles on the remote trails of the northeast, in all kinds of weather. I have gone for as long as a week without putting on clothes in the outback during the summertime. I’ve hiked bare for hours at a time in the snow.

I one day hiked in the nude legally and without troubling anyone, in a city (Toronto…CO beach and immediate setting off season in November).

Being in the nude in the wilds is a life affirming outdoor activity which has few competitors in my humble view. It sharpens your senses and your comprehension of your natural environment and those creatures that share this small part of the universe with us. Also you soon understand how fantastically skillful our bodies are, as delivered by our Creator, at adapting the challenges of our surroundings. Sweat management is a breeze. Animals of the woods come closer and accept your presence more readily. I once had a moose cross my course, and pause, not more than three arms lengths in front of me. We stared at each other for the better part of three minutes, both calmly taking each others’ right to be there. Finally I spoke up and apologized to Mr Moose for startling him, the same greeting that I generally use in my infrequent encounters with fabrics. With that he took one closing unconcerned look at me and ambled away, crashing through the underbrush.


Long distance hikers are accepting, even supporting, of my preference. I pick my times and locations, in order to avoid having to describe the various pleasures of hiking in the buff to uneasy parents with children in tow. Section of the ethos of this type of outdoor recreation is acceptance and regard for the feelings of others less comfortable with the idea. I go out of my way to avert “clothed encounters”. Alas, life isn’t perfect and those occasional “sightings” by unsuspecting others, of my unadorned body have been nice and positive occasions. After seen, I never cover up(sends wrong message) Freehiking can be a social or a solo action. It suits my lifestyle and work schedule as it can be tucked into my days off, spontaneously as time permits, most any time of the year.

Nudism encourages creativity. Freehiking is worth adding to your bucket list. – Dan

First Time

I was in the park in a wooded area. It was hidden. I got my clothes away and took a walk. It turned out to be a marvelous experience. I kept doing it.

First-Time Nudist

My first societal-nudist experience was at a clothing-optional hot tub in Quad Cities, Iowa. Before arriving I knew the bath would be Clothes Optional, but I thought that meant that a number of the folks would choose the option of being naked and some would choose the choice of wearing a bathing suit. I ‘d opt to do the latter, although I really had no problem seeing my friends bare.

When I was brought to the bath, I saw that EACH ONE of the people in the bath was nude. WHAT TO DO??? I thought “What the heck. I’ll try it once.” Within 30 seconds I was hooked for life.

I spent the next 17 years seeing every nudist resort and nude beach that I could squeeze into my small vacation time.

Eventually, in 1999 I retired and I have lived for at a clothing-optional resort in AZ (SLR). The host of the hot tub celebration that began all this, moved here three years ago from Iowa.

My First Time

I was a teenage boy in the mid-60’s and I simply got out of the shower. My mother was watching TV in the den and I wondered what her reaction would be if I went around naked. So I went in the room where she was and sat down right across from her. She asked me why I was not dressed and I told her I was more comfortable not wearing clothes. She said that was ok with her if I needed to be a nudist.

I then went in the back yard and sun bathed nude. I’ve been a nudist all these years but my wife doesn’t understand it. I go naked in my home as often as possible, even when her friends visit.
