Too Cold to Get Naked!

Living up north isn't easy in the winter, but for the past few years, we've had a break. This winter, we've seen 4 major snowstorms, with most of them forcing school cancellations, bringing power outages, and bringing out the idiot drivers in all of us.

Thank goodness March is almost here, but I almost don't want to get naked. The thought of paying so much for my electric bill kills every thought I have about going naked. That, and I'm just plain cold. It takes me a good 20 minutes to take my coat off after I've entered a building.

Florida looks so good right now!

Haven't been around for awhile

Ok, so at this point, I'm the only person reading this, as I haven't posted anything in awhile. Just in case you are, though, I thought I'd give you the naked update:

I just haven't been able to get naked. Lounge clothes, t-shirt/boxers, maybe, but I can't get naked. As an educator, I've been focused on the start of school, and rarely make it home before the sun goes down. In an apartment building that faces a parking lot, once it's dark, I just can't go naked without closing the blinds, and it's just not worth it.

Unfortunately, finances have kept me in a bit of a bind, so even if we wanted to go to a resort, we couldn't afford it. I have, though, started writing some stories. Let me know if you like them.

My Dog is a Nudist, Too!

We have a Shih-Tzu that my mom found a few years ago at the humane society. We swear she must have been neglected by the owner who dropped her off. She was so shy, and would hide if there was even too much noise. We bought a crate to put her in initially until she was house-trained, and she lasted one day; she had pooped all over herself (we think in protest). She still is very standoff-ish with new people and new dogs. We love her, though, and have learned to give her plenty of room and plenty of love.
My wife just can't get over that my dog is a nudist. You know you've seen the people dress up their dogs; my mother does with hers. My dog, though, will just stand there and look at you like you've gone crazy. She won't move, won't budge, won't even lie down. It bugs my wife to no end that my dog just doesn't like to wear clothes!

Simple Nudist or Creepy Guy? reported that a man was arrested for being naked in his hotel room. It sounds ridiculous on the surface, but the room he was in was clearly visible to anyone coming into and out of the hotel lobby, and faced a courtyard where a teen beauty pageant was being held. Part of me says it should have been no big deal, but my instinct says that this wasn't just a simple nudist.

What to do now.....

I like being naked. I don't get to do it too often, and living where I live precludes me from just going naked at home without closing the blinds. Wife and I love to go to the beach when we can, but weather and work have kept us for most of August, and in September, we can no longer enjoy it. If there was a year-round resort close to us, and I could convince her, maybe we could take a day and go.
It's not worth it for a day trip, though, and staying overnight means dealing with logistical concerns. It's not even worth it to convince my wife to go (although I wish it was).

Save Lighthouse Beach

I just heard that apparently, they are looking at closing/moving/shrinking the clothing-optional portion of Lighthouse Beach. I hope it's not true, but if it is, consider signing their petition. If they do this at Lighthouse, they may also consider it at Gunnison at some point. They are both run by the National Park Service.
Apparently, one of the reasons is due to the sexuality of the beach. It's a shame, because I don't think most of us go to check each other out and possibly look for sex, but apparently it happens. If you are thinking of taking an active part in keeping Lighthouse (and even Gunnison) open, you should consider signing the petition and then joining the Gunnison Beach message board, where there are many people openly talking about sexual activities on the beach.
Maybe you like gawking, or even thoroughly enjoying the company of your fellow man/woman. I don't think it belongs on a beach, and if you don't either, it might just be time to speak up.

What is the lifestyle about, anyway?

Transplanted Pilot made a comment:

"Too many nudists want to support anything naked as legit."

Do you really think that anything naked is legit? Or are there limits? I'll take your thoughts....
