The sun was slipping down towards the horizon as we left the town of Saranac, walking on the road out to Forest Hills. After a 2 mile walk, we arrived at the gate.
I punched the call button on the intercom system. A very muffled and distorted voice answered back. After a few confused minutes of trying to understand each other through the intercom. The gate swung open. Unsure as to what we were supposed to do we stepped inside the gate, and after a few minutes the gate swung closed. eventually we figured that we should head up to the office. It was there that we met Terry, the voice on the other side of the intercom.
I had assumed that it was just a bad intercom system, but Terry had a very distinct manner and sound to his voice. Standing next to him as we checked in was Betty. Betty gave us the ten cent tour while Terry checked us in. After that, Terry pointed us to a camp site a little ways from the club house and said good night
We visited a nudist camp, and had some unexpected results!
When my husband Ronnie* suggested that we visit a nudist camp, I was shocked! In time though, I thought the experience was very positive.
Let me paint our picture. Ronnie and I were “hippies” back in the late 1960s. We even went to the first Sunbury Festival in 1972, and may have shed some clothing back then!
Since then though, our lives have been pretty “regular” for everyday Aussies. We’ve just worked hard, raised a family and enjoy spending time with our grandkids.
We’ve probably always held on to some more grounded “hippie” ideals. We like to recycle, get outdoors when we can and have chooks in our backyard. Although I never dreamed of going naked again, at age 62
Nudists in row with planning chiefs over camp site in Ringwood
Avonvale Sun Club operates out of a campsite in Highwood Copse in Ringwood and earlier this year applied for a certificate of lawful use to the planning authority.
If it had been accepted the application would legitimise the use of camping and caravanning by the club’s members when they stay at the site, something they say they have already been doing for a long time.
However it was rejected by the New Forest National Park Authority (NPA) on the grounds that there was no evidence caravans had occupied part of the site for more than 10 years, which would have been a requirement.
Stripped of their right to legitimately camp on site, the naturists are now taking on the NPA by appealing the decision.
The bare cheek! Nudist club members complain about being spied on while playing tennis
There are no prickly bushes to hide behind to conceal their nakedness from people spying on them from the high-rise block at Warlingham, Surrey
Nudists bouncing about as they lob the ball over the net in a game of tennis on the White House Club’s courts will be particularly visible from the top floors of the flats proposed for a nearby road.
The 300 members regularly relax in their birthday suits, enjoying the leafy grounds of their five-acre paradise.
Very rarely do you see a naked woman who is not posing or being objectified and sexualized in some way. When’s the last time you saw a naked women just chillin’, and like… vaccuuming, or gardening; not being a sexual object in any way? A woman being naked just for herself, instead of putting on a performance of sexuality, is hard to find. I’d say Lena Dunham is the closest we’ve got, and my goodness does she make people uncomfortable with her unapologetic, non-sexual nakedness.
Our lack of real-life, non-sexual nakedness makes us all feel Less Than. Women have become obsessed with “fixing” the endless ways in which their bare faces and bodies are wrong, and we are constantly aware of the sexual performance that is expected of us. When we fail at any of the above (and we constantly feel like we are failing), there is shame.
Our Nude Camping Trip To Visit Ancient Petroglyphs
Thoreau reminds us of this simple yet important pleasure. This was our experience on Saturday of our 3-day desert campout, as we walked, without clothes, 6 miles across the desert in the Rodman Mountains Wilderness area. Ostensibly our goal was to locate more ancient Petroglyph sites further from our camp. But in reality the best reward was the au naturel hike itself.
So where are we, and what does it take to get here? The Petroglyph viewing and desert outing is organized as a 3-day campout to a remote part of the Mojave Desert. Our naturist campsite is located about 30 miles beyond the town of Lucerne Valley, adjacent to the Rodman Wilderness Area. This is the perfect location for a clothes-free weekend, and it is but a short walk from there to view the Petroglyphs, rock art left by a race of unknown ancient Native Americans. Note that the last 20 miles of the drive to this site are off highway, but this section of graded gravel road is well suited for passenger vehicles.
Although remote, I brought many amenities along for the campers. This year I added an outdoor shower, camp latrine, and a large screen TV for our camping comfort and pleasure. As with last yearâ€™s trip, we had plenty of stoves, ice, 30 gallons of fresh water, and power for nighttime lights and the all-important blender.
Last morning at Green Haven Sun Club As my last post indicated, we had been camping at Green Haven Sun Club. What it didn’t mention was that I had left home to go there while in a depressive state. I needed to have healing time, something that comes to me largely through sunshine, quietness, and…
