The Restoration 

Over the last month or so, I have found myself questioning this whole naturist lifestyle. The reason……Twitter. We as naturist enjoy sharing our adventures, outings and thoughts with those enjoying this same choice. However, we are bombarded with request after request from so called “naturists”. Only to find more porn, less naturism. To the point I was actually questioning the honesty and purity of it all. Then, as if the Greek goddess Astrea herself heard my pleas, the answer was delivered to me. Today, as we relaxed and enjoyed this glorious day at the river, we encountered and spoke to many different people. Nothing much out of the ordinary until we were preparing to gather our things and head back home. Over the hill walked the one thing I was desperately searching for. Having never seen them before, it was a father, mother, son (about 6 yrs old) and a little white poodle. The father nude, mother in just a t-shirt and son fully dressed. They walked by as we acknowledge each other and continued …

Block Party -clothes free community in action -sunny naturist 

Community is defined as a unified body of individuals with common interests or an interacting population of various kinds of individuals in a common location. That definition could not be more true of those supporting and living a clothes free life.

We took our place towards the end of a VERY long line when it was time to eat. Our first thought was, there isn’t going to be any food by the time we get up …

Tailgate Olympics Phil and Lynn

As children many of us had visions of growing up and becoming Olympians. The images of Mark Spitz, Carl Lewis and Bruce Jenner fueled these dreams. We saw ourselves gracing the front of the ultimate prize………the Wheaties box! However, those dreams gave way to reality, jobs and family and were soon forgotten. Or were they? On August 22nd the Indiana Naturists, a non-landed naturist group based in Fort Wayne, Indiana, held their first annual Nude Tailgate Olympics. It wasn’t held in Berlin, Los Angeles or London but at Sunny Haven Naturist Resort in Granger, Indiana. As we drove through the gate into this latest olympic complex we were greeted by some of the worlds greatest tailgate Olympians. Each had arrived without fanfare, news coverage or clothing with one thing in mind……having fun. The events in the Tailgate Olympics consisted of Horseshoes, Pétanque, Corn Hole, Body Painting and Tailgating Dish (Olympians need nourishment). Gold, Silver and Bronze medals were awarded in each event and points accumulated to determine the winner of the Grand Champion trophy. Each event …
