Birthday Walk

A wonderful day

The Free Range Naturist

2022-05-10 Tucson

It is a Birthday. It begins casually, leading to a brunch on a sidewalk café in an eastside strip mall. The food is good, but all of the hanging plants and wrought iron won’t escape the fact that we’re eating in their big parking lot.

Afterward, I use a door panel and the other cars next door in that parking area, to get out of my pants and into my hiking kilt. With the addition of toe shoes, I’m nearly ready.

We are near the base of scenic Mt. Lemon Highway, a long meander up into the Catalina Mountains. It starts in desert and finishes in alpine conditions at 9200 feet. Our destination is a beautiful 20 mile drive from the restaurant.

About half the way, we pull off into a familiar small parking lot on the side of the road, at around 7000 feet. This was the…

cave, London, 18 October 2022


steve ritter

With its ever-evolving character as a vintage shop, workshop, art space, event space and meeting place, the only thing certain about the layout of cave in Pimlico is it will be interesting. When I arrived for this evening’s life drawing it was being prepared for an imminent new exhibition. I would be modelling in the farthest small gallery space.

Small the gallery may be, but it is accommodating. I would be posing with my back to one wall flanked by heaters, while chairs occupied every available centimetre around the other three. All seats had been filled by the time the last artist arrived, so they sat cross-legged on what remained of the floor.

Short poses were the order of the day. We began with three of 3 minutes, followed by three of 5 minutes. Two poses of 10 minutes each came next, and finally one pose of 15 minutes took…

Clothes Free on a Railway Line


Rambling Naked

Have you ever gone to a train station in order to take off your clothes? I did this on a foggy day in October. However, it was a small train station on a branch line and it was early on a Sunday morning. No one was out except a few joggers.

But one after another. I had it in my head that I must walk in my birthday suite on a track bed. So I looked for a railway line in Google Maps that I thought was suitable for this purpose. Now all that was missing was someone to document it photographically. As before I found someone on the Internet. This time it was Elisabeth, a sixty-year-old lady, 160 cm tall, fat, with glasses, brown hair and a permanent wave. She was obviously excited to spend a day with a bare man and seemed to be expecting something more.

What (not) to do when you encounter a naked hiker?

Hiking Naked is Good

Naked Diaries

There are some rules of engagement in our society that don’t make much sense to me. One of these rules is about having to wear clothes in social settings. I can think of a number of reasons why this is so, but still all these reasons don’t explain in a satisfactory way to me why we absolutely need to wear clothes all the time. Why is nakedness considered indecent?

Also, why do people love beaches? I mean, swimming is nice, as well as the refreshing feeling of a swim on a hot day. I understand it if being on the beach is related to work or survival, or maybe just to watch the ships pass by. What I don’t understand is how it is relaxing to spend the day on a hot beach in the hot sun while on vacation. I’m really trying to consider it, but no. I don’t…

Art is true

The Shaven Circumcised Nudist Life

Long pose sessions for Hesketh Hubbard Art Society at Mall Galleries have a way of turning into a test of endurance. I’ve written previously about some of the localised dynamics that must be negotiated or tolerated. Artists this evening were considerate, respectful, attentive and kind, right from the outset. The fact that it ultimately became […]

Bare Practitioner Pride!

Good thoughts!

ReNude Pride

Bare Practitioners Trail entrance!

As bare practitioners (same gender loving naturists/nudists) we wholeheartedly embrace, encourage and endorse the following character traits of our community and our culture:

Acceptance: of our body and clothes freedom nature and our sexuality.

Belief: in our inalienable and natural right to determine and to be ourselves.

Confidence: in all of us to be what and who we basically and honestly are without any apology, guilt or shame.

Dedication: in advocating and supporting these principles for everyone, no matter who they are and where they live.

Pride: our shining star!

As bare practitioners we all know that we are entitled to and experience our pride throughout the entire year. Confidence and self-expression are not limited and/or restricted to just the month of June, annually. Pride month is when we, as both a community and a culture, remind the the rest of humanity of who we all…

Work Naked Day

I like working naked too

…(the first Friday in February), was started by Lisa Kanarek in 2010 as a way to celebrate the freedom to work from home at a time when that was very unusual.

Fortunately, I’m in semi-retirement, which means I don’t have to go to the office any more. My wife still enjoys going to work and bringing up the youngest, so housework is my new job.
Today, Feb. 04, 2022 on #WorkNakedDay #WorldNakedDay2022 I did the housework in my birthday suit (like most of the time).

Nude Across America Pt.23 Leelanua Peninsula

A lovely walk in nature

The Free Range Naturist


Just so you know…Part 24, Lake Shelbyville, was published out of sequence, by the fingers of a sleepy naked guy on a couch. Once it is done….

We’re looking for a secluded place, a spiritual experience, fewer people, certainly no crowds, solitude. I figured that it would be up here in this part of Michigan, as I remember it. It feels down right crowded today, in the height of the summer season. Things have changed. There is plenty of countryside, but it is all private lands. People are packed in otherwise.

The public lands are near. Big Bear Dunes, again as I remember, are fun and there may be a spot just south of them, down the coast of Lake Michigan, where people don’t go, much.
