He might be naked!!!

Privacy in the suburban wasteland is difficult to come by.  As a nudist, privacy becomes very important.

Personally, I don’t care if people see me naked in the back yard.  I just worry that if those people happen to be, and most likely are, regular people, then they might freak out.  I don’t need neighbors to freak out.

I’ve planted shrubbery in strategic locations to try to screen my yard from second story windows but it is still a few years away from being a good screen.  In the meantime, the idea of having to put on clothes to go out in the yard, swim, or use the hot tub really sucks.  Therefore I am at least partially careful about offending.  Otherwise, when it’s 100 degrees and high humidity, I’m going naked whether anyone likes it or not.

It hasn’t been obvious yet that my happiness has been observed until recently.  It was cold outside so I wasn’t naked.  I walked outside to clean up the patio.  The neighbors across the back fence were outside playing with their little girl.  The girl, as little girls do, play very loudly.  I could hear every word she yelled at the top of her lungs.  One phrase she said was, “Don’t look over there, he might be naked!”

Apparently at one time I was the topic of conversation in the house.  Part of me is glad to hear that they know and have not called the police or something.  Part of me is sad to hear that seeing naked people is “bad” for them.  What a wonderful world it would be if we could all just be naked and not worry about it.

These people usually keep their 2nd story window blinds closed in which case I feel free.  I guess they peep.  That’s not my fault.  It’s not like I’m being lewd.  I’m just being comfortable.  If they want to peep.  I’m fine with that.

It’s January now and I’m really looking forward to swimming weather again.

Sleep Naked

I’ve been sleeping naked for countless years now.  There’s no doubt about it that it is so much more comfortable.

Last night it was really cold so I thought I might wear my pajamas.  Big mistake.  They kept getting all bunched up.  The pants legs kept riding up.  Strangely enough, I kept feeling cold and didn’t sleep well.

Finally I got up, stripped down and got back in bed.  So much better.  I was actually warmer because my body heat was allowed to warm the bed around me.

It made me think about all the regular people who don’t sleep naked.  I almost cried for them.  Can you even believe that people wear clothing to bed?  It boggles my mind.  Why?  What’s the point?  I’ll never understand the common humans.  They don’t know what is good.  Maybe they will never know what is good.

Want to make your life better?   Sleep naked.  Encourage your kids to sleep naked.  If they grow up doing it wrong then then how will they ever get a good night’s sleep?   I spent my childhood sweating and losing countless nights of sleep until I figured it out.  I could have done so much better in school had I been properly rested.

I’m trying to help you.  I’m trying to help the world.  Pay attention!

 

Trip Report – Nude Beach Corpus Christi

San Antonio sucks and circumstances came together yesterday so I decided to set off on a spontaneous road trip to get some beach time.  I haven’t really gone anywhere special in a very long time so the time was ripe for a getaway.  There’s a spot that I’ve been looking to check out for a few years but never took the time.  It’s just a little south of Corpus Christi on Padre Island.

I gathered a few supplies together and hit the road.  It took me about 3 hours to get there from San Antonio.  After a quick stop at Subway for a 6″ veggie delight is made my way to the beach.  Traffic was a little heavy since half of the world was going to the beach on Saturday.

Google photo. Forgot to take a picture. New bollards are much larger.

The area is at the boundry of the regular beach and Padre Island National Seashore park.  Bollards are set up in the sand to prevent anyone from driving on that part of the beach.  That effectively cuts off access to the riff-raff.  Park right there.

I brought along my bicycle so I could easily travel a nice distances from the common people who don’t appreciate speedos or nudity for unfathomable reasons.

It was hot but the humid wind coming off the ocean kept it bearable.

I loaded up my bike with water, towel and sunscreen and set off down the empty beach.  At the start there were a few people brave enough to wander more than 10 feet from their car.


About half a mile I ran across one guy on a lawn chair still wearing clothes.  Weird.

At maybe around a mile I was completely alone with nobody as far as the eye can see.  This is special!  One is seldom alone anymore in this crowded world.

There was nothing but beach, sun, and birds to keep me company.  Nice!

I had planned to just get a nice speedo tan this year but how could one resist.  It was a matter of minutes before I found myself naked.

I applied sunscreen and played in the water and the sand for a while.  This is the best thing ever.  I wished I had brought my frisbee to toss into the wind and catch it when it comes back.

Occasionally the park ranger would drive past in his four wheeler.  You could see him coming way in advance.  I either put on my swimsuit or sat in the water and waved.  It would seem unnecessary for him to tell me to get un-naked with nobody else around but best not to push it.  If I was there with a group I might have risked it.  I doubt he would have really cared.

 

After a while I thought I might ride my bike a little further down just to see what there was to see.

Naked bike riding is fun.  I highly recommend you give it a chance.

 

Eventually three hours had passed as I frolicked around.  It was nearing 4:00 so I decided to head back to the car.  I was glad I brought my water.  I was getting rather thirsty.  Love my Yeti cup!  Keeps Ice forever!

I loaded up my car and hit the road for Port Aransas to visit the best restaurant in the world.

If you’re ever in Port Aransas, eat at The Crazy Cajun.  I’ve been going there since I was in school.  They opened in 1980 something and I’m glad to see they’re still there.

 

They have lots of cajun food but you HAVE to get The Hungry Cajun.  For about $16.00 you get corn, sausage, shrimp, potatoes and crab.

MMMMMMMMMM!  The best.

Do it!  Do it now!

 

After dinner I like to go down to the marina and watch the boats come in as the sun sets.

There was a nice little wooden floating covered patio where I spent at least an hour looking at all the boats come and go.

 

 

I considered sitting on the edge and dangling my feet in the water but as I looked down a Sea Turtle was picking algae off the side of the patio.  That would not have been good for my toes.

 

 

The marina is full of all kinds of boats.  I looked at some of the sailboats and imagined myself sailing the Caribbean going wherever I pleased.

Note to self:  Watch YouTube and learn how to sail in case you ever decide to steal a sailboat.

 

 

The sun was setting and I lost my shade so I decided to head to the hotel.

I braved the long line at the ferry and made my way back to the mainland to my motel.  I recommend the Best Western at Ingleside and was lucky that I made my reservation online this morning.  The world is booked up.

I slept well and woke up around 7:00 for the condimental breakfast then headed back up the highway to Mundania.

All in all, it was an inexpensive and enjoyable getaway.  I must do this more often.  Now that I know of a great place to enjoy the beach naked I will do it for sure.  I wish I didn’t always have to do it alone.

Also: Sunscreen is amazing.  Three hours in the direct sun and I didn’t get burned.  I’m impressed.

 

 

Beach Trip!

I woke up early this Saturday morning to a strange buzzing sound.  After walking around the dark house and out in the yard I discovered my neighbor’s air conditioner to be making a horrible racket.  A very loud buzz that can drive a man insane in a few minutes.

Maybe it would be a good day to get the fuck out of town.  I haven’t really gone anywhere in who knows how long.  I spend most of my weekends puttering around the house which is perfectly fine to me because being at home is like being on vacation.

Today I’m feeling like I want go get some sun and water and run around in my speedo or naked.  I decided a spontaneous trip to Corpus Christi and Port Aransas might be in order.  I went online and booked a hotel.  I could have driven there and back in one day but why push it.  Sleeping in a hotel is part of the fun.  It’s a cheap trip.  The hotel, gas and food should cost me less than $200.  Totally worth it at twice the price.

I plan on taking my bike and riding down a blocked off part of the beach where cars aren’t allowed.  I’ll wear my little red speedo and maybe go naked if the beach is deserted.  What fun!

Yes. I’m going alone.  I have two people who I could ask but one would just not appreciate the awesomeness and the other can’t stay overnight.

That’s fine.  I prefer do do as I please and not be encumbered by dragging someone along who is only partially self-aware.

This should be a nice get-away.  Look for the trip report tomorrow.

 

Properly watching Naked and Afraid

I occasionally watch Naked and Afraid on the Discovery Channel.  I’m not a huge fan but if there’s nothing else on, I’ll watch it.  Of course one should be naked while watching so I hope you’re doing it right.

I’m doubt I have the survival skills to last the whole time in such harsh environments.  Still, it might be fun to try it for fun.  I wonder if people get together in groups and go out in the wild and pretend to be on the show.  I would do it.  Too bad I have nobody to go with.  Anyone???

 

World Naked Gardening Day

Today is World Naked Gardening Day.  Unfortunately due to the lack of privacy I was only able to garden mostly naked.  I just wore my tiniest speedos.  One day, as soon as I move to the country, I will be able to garden naked every day.

In a better world, every day would be naked gardening day.

 

Trip Report – Naked Camping

Naked Camping Day One

I had a week vacation coming up and I was in desperate need to get away. Ever since I bought my RV I had wanted to spend a week at a naturist resort east of Austin and now was the time.

Saturday morning I rode my bike the three miles to the lot where I store my RV and drove it home. I needed to do some minor work on it and load it up. Sunday I had to play in a concert so I couldn’t leave until Monday anyway so that gave me time to get prepared.

Monday morning I finished loading and hit the road. It always feels so weird driving off on vacation. It was about a two hour drive that was smooth sailing. I drove down the small potholed roads that approached the park. To get in, you stop at the gate, open it, drive through and close it. A quaint touch!
I drove up to the office to check in. The people there were very friendly. I paid up and filled out the paperwork. A guy rode ahead of me in a golf cart to show me the way to the RV camping area. I asked him which spot he thought was the best. He pointed one out and I pulled in.
I didn’t waste any time getting naked before I leveled out the RV and hooked up the power, water and sewer connections. I put the few clothes that I brought away. I won’t be needing them for a whole week! I noticed shortly after turning the water on that there was an unexplained puddle of water in the bathroom. The water line to the toilet was leaking. I replaced the toilet a few years ago but it looks like I didn’t empty the water from the lines and it froze over the winter. Bummer! That’s OK though. There’s a restroom only 75 feet away for number two and flushing number one can be done with a glass of water. I’ll look into it when I get back.

I also noticed that one of my sweet shiny hubcaps was missing. Great. I must not have put it on securely after inflating the tires. Gonna have to buy another one.

The RV area had a few permanently parked campers nestled under towering pine trees. Being a weekday, there weren’t many people around except for on RV across the way. I waved at them and they waved back. Got to be friendly! I had a quick PB&J while unpacking things from traveling position. I set up my hammock under the tree and started to read my book. I’m reading “Board Stiff“. A Xanth book. My sister got me started on them years ago. I like them because they are light reading that takes my mind off of daily thoughts.

I laid there reading for a while as the pools of sun filtered through the pine branches across my naked body. The wind blew gently. It was the perfect temperature. This is that way life should be. After a while I put my book down and closed my eyes enjoying the silence of the branches blowing and the birds tweeting. No deafening roar of traffic. Thank god! Is a little peace too much to ask?

I read some more. (I’m going to do a LOT of reading.) I hooked up the cable TV but got nothing. Oh well. Then I cranked up the antenna and pointed towards Austin. I ran the channel scan on the TV and got a bunch of HD channels. Cool! I watched “This old House” while I cooked up some Salmon, Peas and Macaroni and “cheese”. I like easy yet mostly healthy food. The Macaroni and Cheese are surprising low in fat. I guess that’s why it doesn’t really taste like cheese. That’s OK. Things taste like they do. I’m fine with that.
The sun was starting to go down behind the tall pines so I decided to take a walk and see the pool and volleyball area. I greeted the people across the way. They were very nice. We talked for a few minutes about our older RVs. It was nice to meet a fellow vintage RV person. Mine is an 82 Holiday Rambler. His is an 89 something. I forgot. He and his wife are from Idaho visiting his relatives in Houston and tripping around. They were getting ready to eat so I walked on.
The pool is very nice looking. It’s brand new. There was a group of people sitting under the shade area talking. I walked on to see the Volleyball court. I was hoping to find people playing because Naked Volleyball is my favorite sport. Nobody there. Bummer. Maybe another time.
There are a lot of sand “roads” snaking around so I decided to explore. Wearing only my flip-flops for foot protection I set off. For the most part I was able to remove my flip flops and go barefoot. I love going barefoot.. A few times the path crossed some sharp stones so I had to put them back on but otherwise I could have gone without.
The paths passed many dilapidated cabins. Most are one-room but some look like real houses. All in very poor condition. Obviously abandoned for a long time. I started a fantasy of becoming a live-in full-time maintenance man here. I could whip this place into shape. I’ve been wanting to move away from San Antonio all my life and do something simple. This would fit the bill. I wonder….
I walked possibly most if not all of the roads stopping to peek in the windows of some of the abandoned cabins. I enjoyed the walk and I think I will do this every day while I’m here. It’s good to get the exercise. I came back to my RV and read some more as I watched the sun set on the trees across a large empty field. It was very pretty and peaceful. The world doesn’t know what it is missing.

I had put on some sunscreen before the walk but didn’t need it thanks to the trees. It made me feel nasty so I decided to try out the nearby restroom/shower building. Might as well not fire up the RV’s water heater and waste propane if a shower is right there. The building is basically cinder block construction. No frills. No windows. Dark and dank. Purely utilitarian but certainly good enough. I’m not a 5-star hotel kind of guy anyway. I appreciate simple things.
It was almost 8:00 and starting to get dark. I brought along some movies so I watched, “Arrival”.

It was 10:00 by the end so I set up my bed and turned off the lights. I listened to Coast to Coast AM that I have recorded as I drifted off to a peaceful sleep.

Naked Camping Trip Report Day 2

I woke up naturally around 8:00 to see the sun peeking over the trees across the field. The blue sky out my window fresh and clean as thin clouds wafted by. I enjoyed not having to get up and go to work. It’s the best thing ever. After thoroughly enjoying just lying there I flipped on the TV. Not much worth watching on a weekday morning but I caught the weather report. A cold front is coming this evening. The low will be in the 40s and the highs tomorrow and the next day in the 70s. Perfect!

I assembled myself some waffles using the flippy waffle iron I brought along and watched a few episodes of “The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.” I’ve been watching a few episodes each camping trip. Eventually I watch them all. It’s a western/comedy/drama/sci-fi from the early 90s I think where they make modern references. I know you’ve never heard of it but It’s good stuff. I fell asleep again while watching. It was really nice to be able to do that.
Eventually it was lunchtime and I was hungry again. Waffles don’t fill you up very long. I made myself a Vietnamese-style sandwich with some unsalted corn chips. Excellent!

I was supposed to go back to the office yesterday and let them know which RV slot I decided on. When I got there, the office was closed so I walked over to tell them. It turns out the slot I took was a permanent slot that someone owns. They just weren’t there at the time. It sucked but it was OK. I got myself together and moved the RV across the road to a sunny spot. Big mistake. It wasn’t long before the sun made being inside the RV impossible. I didn’t want to have to use the A/C so I packed up again and moved to the one next door. Much better!

The temperature had already reached the high 80s and I was hot. I noticed Bill and Terry leaving for the pool. That was an excellent idea! I grabbed my towel, sunscreen and flip flops and headed off naked to the pool. The water was still quite cool in April but it felt good once you got used to it. Once I was cooled off I sat in chair in the shade near Bill and Terry and a guy named Charlie who were randomly conversing. A few hours passed as we talked about various things. One great thing about going to a Nudist resort is that these are your people. At regular campgrounds, nobody speaks to one another. When you are naked, everyone is family. I really like that. I really feel at home now. This is far better than going anywhere else where everyone ignores you. It sucks being invisible in normal life. It’s kind of like where you put on a cloak and become invisible. Here, when you take off you cloak, you become visible again. It has been a long time since I’ve been visible. It feels good.
It was close to 5:00 and we were ready to head back for dinner. I walked back to our area with Bill and Terry and went back to my RV. It was still 89 degrees but being in the shade helps. I turned on my portable fan and was very comfortable since I wasn’t wearing anything.
This place doesn’t allow any charcoal grills probably due to fear of fire. A recent fire in this area wiped out a huge number of trees and houses. Fire bad. They have a small area near the pool with two propane grills that we are allowed to use. “Grilligan’s Island” the sign says. LOL! I don’t often eat red meat anymore due to high cholesterol issues but on special occasions I sometimes indulge a bit. I grabbed my steak, tongs and my phone to use as a timer and walked to the grills and in about 10 minutes my steak was ready.

I brought it back to the RV and microwaved up a sweet potato and some jalapeno ranch style beans. It was a most excellent meal eaten outside in the shade and sun.
After that I went and took a shower to wash off the sunscreen and grime. Moveitime! I’ve also been watching all the James Bond movies in order as time allows. I watched the first hour of “You only live twice” before getting sleepy so I turned off the TV and went to bed. It was still quite warm and getting humid so I kept the windows open and the vent fans on. A cool front is scheduled for sometime tonight. Hope it gets here soon.
Around 3am I awoke to the wind blowing nicely. It’s here! I closed up the windows and turned off the exhaust fans. It was very comfortable under my nice blankie and I slept until morning as the sun rose once more.

Naked Camping Trip Report Day 3
I woke up in a rather cold RV. It was in the 50s outside yet sunny. Perfect! I switched on the heater and the TV. Being close to Austin I get quite a few channels off the antenna. I avoided the broadcast channels which spew annoying news and commercials. The TV seems most happy on the public access Create channel that shows travel, cooking and DIY stuff. The TV knows what is good. I watched a show on Italy, then Japan and then Ask This Old House.

If felt really nice just lying there with nothing I have to do and nobody forcing me to do things for them. I really need to do this more often somehow. Next I watched a few more episodes of Brisco County Jr. and took a short nap.
Lunchtime! I was a bit hungry so I toasted some bread and made myself a tuna salad sandwich with some leftover beans from last night. Perfect.

I read and dozed for a while. It was getting nice and warm now and the wind wasn’t as biting so I went for a walk in the woods. I passed all the little cabins again until I heard some hammering. There was a naked guy working on one of the cabins. I went up and said hello. I asked him about the cabin and he said they lease the land to you and almost give you the cabin if it is in bad shape. If you have a gold membership for at least a year you can lease the land for $95/mo. All you pay for is electricity. Sweet! I may consider this but probably wouldn’t do it as my main house. I really want a few acres to build fresh. It would be nearby anyway so I would still be a member. Nice info to know.

I walked back to my RV and moved my hammock to a nice shady spot and read some more. A couple showed up across the way to pressure wash the outside of their trailer. I watched as they had a hard time getting it to work. Being unable to not be helpful to others, I walked over to see if I could help. The were less friendly than most naked people would be but thanked me for asking. I didn’t want to intrude so I went back and continued reading. The man got in his golf cart and left. I read on. The pressure washer was working now but the girl had it on a tight stream and was only making lines in the mold growing on the sides of the trailer. I could help myself and went over to show her how to set it to fan. She was very happy that I had fixed it for her. I took my leave and watched as she finished cleaning it much more efficiently now.
Some heavy equipment appeared in the beautiful field and delivered a pile of telephone poles. More workers arrived and they started installing them. Apparently the poles supporting the high voltage wires that look recently installed need another one in the middle. That sucks. Now I hear equipment working instead of peace and quiet. That’s OK. I can handle it. I live in San Antonio where the noise never stops. At least they’ll be gone by evening.

The wind was still blowing hard at times and sometimes it was cold. I realized I had not really gotten any sun on this trip because I was avoiding sunburn. A little sun is good for you though so I moved my hammock into the sun for a while. It felt really good with warm sun on your naked body as the cool breeze keeps you from sweating. Perfect! I limited myself to 30 minutes on the back and 30 on the front. There’s nowhere on my body that the sun don’t shine. By the end of the summer I’ll have a great tan without sunburn. That’s much safer. Time it wisely and you get the vitamin D benefits without the burn.

Seeing the naked girl wash her RV reminded me that I wanted to clean my solar panels. I rinsed them off but they needed to be cleaned. I climbed up on the roof with some cleaner and paper towels and spicked up their span. Sparkle Sparkle!

The sun was starting to go behind the tall trees and it is expected to be a cold night so I closed up the windows to keep the residual heat in. Time for dinner so I made myself a nice Spaghetti and “meat”ball plate. The soy-based meatballs are not great and are not really necessary but what the heck. Healthier than meat with no cholesterol or saturated fat. Even the spaghetti is rice and quinoa based rather than wheat. Better for you. I liked it.

I read some more then as it got darker I finished up my James Bond movie then watched a few classic episodes of Doctor Who with Sylvester McCoy. I have a ton of them and have seen most. I watched them on KLRN back in the 80s before they took it away.

It got pretty cold overnight. Glad I brought my electric heater for a little warmth.

Naked Camping Trip Report Day 4

It was indeed cold this morning. With the low in the 40s I was glad I switched on the heater halfway through the night. I had nothing to do an nowhere to go so I flipped on the TV for a bit. I watched a few travel shows again and a couple of episodes of Brisco County Jr until lunch.

After I had a tuna sandwich and some leftover Mac and Cheese I went out for another walk along the trails. There’s no better feeling than walking around naked and not having to worry about freaking people out. In a better world this would not be an issue. If there is reincarnation, I will be selecting a naked planet. This clothes thing is suxor for sure.

The construction guys disappeared early today so most of the day was nice and quiet. They left their dump truck there so I imagine they will be back again tomorrow. Maybe they found something better to do than dig a hole and annoy us. I stretched out in my hammock in a nice shady spot and read. YAY! I finished the book. At the end, the author states that it took him three months to write the book. That’s good because it took me three months to read it. At least it was a book that I enjoyed through to the end rather than wishing it was over.
Curiously, I loaded up the next book on my kindle, “New York 2140“. It’s about a future in New York (obviously) where global warming has inundated the city with 3-4 floors height in water. Life still goes on. It looks like an interesting premise but the first few short chapters are failing to pull me in. I hope it gets better.

I wasn’t as tired today so I didn’t really get any napping done. That’s good. Maybe I’ve finally worked out the tiredness I suffer from so greatly in normal life. It’s Thursday so I still have one more full day to dilly-dally.

I went outside for a minute and a butterfly fluttered around me. I held up my hand and it landed on my finger. That’s a special event for sure. I stood there for quite some time as the butterfly probed my finder with it’s long tongue mechanism. It must have thought I was a flower or something. After admiring it for some time I shook it off. It flew around and landed on my hand again. A special visit for a special person.

Eventually dinnertime came so I had my last piece of Salmon with the other half of my sweet potato and some steamed peas. I went ahead and took my evening shower. Sure feels good to be clean. Time for some James Bond. “Diamonds are Forever”. I love watching movies from the 60s. It was a time when oil was cheap, cars still had chrome, things were still made by hand with style and people still had class.

Naked Camping Trip Report Day 5

The sun peeked through the windows and I woke up around 8:00. I had decided overnight that I was adequately rested and recreated so I should head home today. That would give me the whole weekend to take care of all the stuff around the house that can be done before I have to go back to work again on Monday.

It was still early so I had some breakfast then started to pack things up and clean the RV. Might as well do it now while I was naked than do it at home where I have to wear clothes and be uncomfortable. I had a small vacuum cleaner that I found in someone’s discard pile at the street a few years ago. I fixed it up good as new so I keep it in the RV. It was perfect to vacuum up all the dirt that I had tracked in.

As I was outside disassembling my hammock, Bill came over and asked if I wanted to go with them to the grocery store. I thanked him for asking and told him that I was heading out this morning.

Once I was packed, I disconnected the water, power and sewer; lowered the TV antenna and raised the landing gear and stared my trip home.

I was starving for a good meal so I stopped at a Chinese food buffet where I had a mostly vegetarian meal. Got to keep the cholesterol down. Soon I was on the 2 hour trip back to Mundania. Just out of curiosity, I weighed myself when I got home. I’m down to 165 lbs. I’m telling you, stick with me and you’ll lose weight. A low fat, low cholesterol diet will get you fixed up. I’m on that diet permanently. Damn I look good naked!

Well, it’s back to real life. You can’t escape Mundania. It comes for you. At least you can escape for a little while. I had a great vacation. I will be doing this again soon.
