Autumn Nudity

There's always a refreshing feeling that comes with being bare in nature during the Autumn. It can perhaps be the lack of humidity and the crispness present in the air. It is the cooling temperatures that come with the new season and the eager anticipation of the approaching Halloween festivities, especially if you plan to celebrate clothes-free.

Hiking bare is always one of my favorite Autumn activities. Foremost is the fact that it can usually be free from all the pesky insects (such as mosquitoes and lyme disease bearing ticks) that thrive in the summer weather. Another reason is when Autumn arrives, very few of my naturist/nudist friends complain about the heat. An excursion along the natural trails and walkways are rarely opportunities for suffering from heat exhaustion or sunstroke.

What I like best about hiking this time of year is meeting other nude groups out on the trail. People are always at their friendliest when hiking clothes-free. Once everyone is bare, there's no chance of anyone concealing anything, hence, less judgment and no need for assuming pretentious attitudes. Everyone is naturally exactly "who they are."

Earlier this month, Aaron and I hosted an Autumn bare hiking expedition for our family and friends. This is the fifth consecutive year that we've done this and every year, there's always a new and exciting challenge that we've had to contend with. This year, our major setback was due to Mother Nature. Hurricane Joaquin was slowly moving up the East Coast of the United States. The weather conditions were wet and the air was chilly. We switched our outing from the first Saturday of the month to the second weekend. 

Although the following Saturday was somewhat warmer, the temperature and conditions were far from ideal. We persevered with two other bare couples on a modified schedule. Everyone else "bailed" on joining us. We were few in number but our spirits were enthused about the company and the hike. Instead of our planned hike in the mountains of rural Virginia, we re-located our adventure to a trail closer to our home and sitting on the property of a fellow bare enthusiast. He wasn't able to join us but gladly gave his permission for us to use his land.

It was a chilly and wet outing. Truthfully, it became extremely windy during the early afternoon. But being the brave, nude fools that we are, we didn't surrender to the weather but "carried on" with our bare mission. We hiked for approximately two miles before we decided to return to the parking lot and have our "picnic lunch" inside the SUV. Soggy sandwiches had no appeal for any of us.  

As we were headed back home, Aaron and I both agreed that despite the poor attendance, the hike was a success. Count at least one more day of being naked with family and friends as a bonus before the weather changes for good!

Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!
