I saw the movie “The Bucket List” and it made me think of my own personal bucket list. One of many things I had always wanted to do was see a bare resort. I had swam naked in Lake Mead frequently and a few other locations and liked the feeling of freedom you get being naked.
I made the decision to locate a nearby nudist facility and visit. My wife said she wasn’t interested so I went alone to Mountaindale Sun Resort.
The host was very friendly and clarified the rules and gave me a quick tour. I CAn’t wait to get undressed and join up with the folks in the pool. I truly loved my visit and went back a few more times. The pool, hiking trails, watering place and property are a great spot to spend time. Being bare felt so natural I immediately adopted the notion.
My wife does not share my enthusiasm so my chances to see are reduced. My times at the nudist resort are some of the most relaxing and pleasurable recreation I have ever done. I am definitely happy I acted on executing one of the items on my “bucket list.” I found fellow nudists to be an extremely friendly crowd.
Why Did We Wait So Long?
Our first encounter with social nudity occurred during the Skinny Dip this year. My soon to be wife and I read about it in the AANR Bulletin. We talked about it for several days and finally made a decision to go. She was genuinely a little fearful of getting naked in public. She had all the anxieties which are discussed on all the parks’ websites.
When we arrived at Whispering Pines, we were greeted by several naked people at the gate. They seemed so at ease standing there and welcoming us to the park. They grinned and gave directions to the parking area. So off we went into the world of social nudism. We drove past lots of people that were naked too. All of them grinned and waved like they knew you.
After we parked and got out of the car, I began to take my clothing away. She looked at my like I was crazy. “Are you getting naked right now?”
“I sure am; everyone else is so we should be also.” She started to take off her clothes as a girl pulled into the spot next to us. Robin quit and just stood there as the woman got out of her car and stripped, and grabbed her towel and cooled and gave an extremely pleasant hello to us. I believe this removed all hesitation from Robin. She removed the rest and we walked to the pool area.
That was the beginning of a brand new lifestyle for us. We have been back there and to The Bar-S-Ranch.
We have met a number of the friendliest folks at both places. Now we’re getting prepared to join one as members.
All I can declare is why did I wait so long to get this done? It’s the very best form of outdoor recreation. Sun and atmosphere on the naked skin is amazing to let life’s frustrations go away. Hate to have to pack up and go home. But like I said we will be back as frequently as possible.

The 15 minute Challenge
We had just bought our first RV and were looking for somewhere close to try the new RV. A Web search of nearby RV resorts found quite few places to go that were fairly close. I located Lilly Valley in Fort Erie, Canada and thought it seemed intriguing.
When my wife came home and asked if I discovered someplace I told her there were a few that were more than 100 miles away, however there was a “nuddie” resort only through the Peace Bridge.
I was astounded when her only answer was “OK.”
I called and made reservations and we were on the way. About 45 minutes after we were there. Lilly Valley has a little gate and many nude males met me there and helped direct me on which way to turn to get in. By the time that I got through the gate there were six bare guys with enough metal to build their own battleship. Lilly Valley regulars were at that time into piercings.
As I began to get out of the truck to set up my wife said, “What if I can’t do this?” My answer was it takes 15 minutes to set up, and another 15 minutes to take it down. If you don’t like it we will leave. That seemed reasonable to her so we unhooked the RV. Inside 15 minutes we had met a Postal Worker and his wife, a family with two kids, the proprietor and many other people. No one paid any attention to any parts except for the parts of the RV.
We’ve been nudists since then. We also felt the need for AANR so much we became Prime Minister members and then Life members. Now all of our excursions are made around going from one nudist resort to another.

First Nudist Holiday
I reserved our wedding to coincide with my birthday and didn’t tell my future wife that I’d reserved our room in Jamaica to be on the Nudist side of the resort. To say she was shocked was an understatement. I was unpacking when I heard her scream and I went to investigate and found her on the balcony laughing about some guy who she said was walking around with no clothes on. I said what do you expect, we are on the bare side of the hotel?
After about 3 hrs of looking and laughing she came to terms and from then on we became http://girlnudist.com and have remained so ever since, and by the way we did get married with clothes on.

Click to viewMy parents were nudist. I imagine, given the time frame, I was about two years old when I had my first memory of going to a “nudist camp.” It was someplace in the Bay Area in California. My next memory comes from sometime after we moved to Ohio (about 1954). We subsequently moved to Louisiana where there we no resorts or camps within a fair driving distance from our home. We did vacation at a few spots in Florida and Texas from about 1956 to 1964. My parents seldom bothered to get dressed round the house and my mother spent a least a couple of hours a day, during good weather, sun bathing in our quite large backyard. I have been wed a bit more frequently that I ‘d have enjoyed, but all of my wives have become nudist or at least participated in my nudist activities. I’m an academic and one of my research areas has involved research on the effects of a nudist life style on children (positive outcomes), and legal problems relative to use of public areas by nudist (testified in various legal actions).
I think that one of the very most positive outcomes of my life long experience as a naturist is that I am very comfortable with all sorts and kinds of people. I have learned for the most part to simply take people as they come and they do come in all shapes and sizes.
Thus . . . my first experience was atypical, but now 60 years later I am still at it.
