I can empathize with the desire to “build your own” but I propose a twist – how about getting creative with joint ventures? I think that nudists both young and old could stand to benefit by learning from history. It seems that in recent decades many of our landed clubs have taken on a kind of “country club” mode of operations and nudists across the generations have been fixed on various forms of “nude recreation”. The specific outlets and forms of recreation obviously vary between the young and old and according to personal tastes but nonetheless it has been mostly about recreation. It wasn’t always this way – many landed clubs were started by a bunch of idealists who worked hard to establish “intentional” or “demonstration” communities of like minded individuals. My friend Melissa (of Barely Melissa fame) has recently suggested that nudists and naturists should return to more of a focus on health as we did in yesteryear and that’s a good start.
