The World of Nude Recreation As Told By You

The Nudist Traveler
At 10 years old my only interest was clothes. I traveled all over town on buses to every shopping avenue and widow display. I had discovered that the right clothing could change my mood.I found the general public in a state of greyness and clothes made me happy, that's why they call it obsession, I guess.
Later on I studied making clothes and found if I made a beautiful article I could make others happy, specially women, so I did. I designed for a large population of ladies and their smiles gave me much happiness. In the study of art I found also that clothes weren't important, that form was, and this is why I love being naked.
My body was given by a high power and I should be ashamed by its display and naturalness, I think not! I think it's great for social gatherings, as you meet folks who are new.

At a very young age I built a fascination with the body, people and relatives were having health problems and only considered doctoring as the cure and never thinking of how they treated this body they inhabited, or their relationship to it. I felt that all my thinking came from inside this container of mine or body as they say.
On examining myself for any distinct change in the outer layers because it gave message to what was going on inside, I had to take care of myself. Doctors I didn't trust, and money seemed to be their focus.
I would be naked in my bath for hours, ate food but shunned the blood of animals. It looked foul, sunned as much as possible and avoided work as much as possible. Being a kid, of course, and never ashamed of my body, it held the world for me.
After a time I gained interest in Art. Renascamento and Michelangelo interested me and his depictions of heaven and his Pieta and his anatomical forms, and now older I still feel the same.I lost all shame and its falsity.

I was in Osaka,Japan, to design textiles, the work long and of high detail. One evening, searching the hotel, I came upon a bath house. I peeked and saw a sparkling room of white tile, tile tables were set up all over with large pools of ice water in the floor. I entered and there were men speaking of the day's gains.
Respectfully, I was told, strip and shower, of course I did. It was a great 3 hours, nude and speaking to Japanese nudists about profits and loss after a scrub massage and miso soup. They told me to come back the next night for poker and sushi Sunday. What great nudists they were nightly.

Cross Country Travel
Recently my best friend and I made a cross country trip to visit various historical sites. Among these were San Antonio (The Alamo), Tombstone, and the Hoover Dam/Bridge.
We had two great experiences during this trip.
First - we rented a car for two weeks from Budget. I used my AANR membership to get us about $100 in savings! This alone was worth the membership!
Second, we spent two nights at Mira Visita Resort in Arizona. What a GREAT place! The food was great, the rooms (we had a two room suite) very good, top Internet access, and a new pool they call the "conversation pool." It works!
My buddy is from Sweden and had no issue with my desire to spend some time nude. But by the time we left Mira Vista, he was sold on the nudist resort for complete relaxation! I might even get him to join AANR soon!
I just wanted to write a short clip of our adventure and say to everyone - use the benefits of AANR, and visit resorts that are out there.
What a great trip!
In 2002 the Wildflowers nonlanded club was having a raft trip down the Grand Canyon. I decided to try to go on that trip of a lifetime. Since my wife had died I had been eating lunch at Mike's at the yard, a hamburger place at the stockyard in Petaluma, Cal. They had the best hamburgers in Sonoma County with such delights as the stinky breath burger (covered with a generous handful of roasted garlic, a cheese burger (bleu cheese instead of American cheese)plus all the other usual things, onions, tomatoes, pickles, etc. Just great burgers.
I asked a waitress there if she would like to go on the raft trip. She said it sounded like a fun thing to do. I said I would give her all the information about the trip the next time I had lunch there; I didn't mention to her that it was a clothing optional trip at that time.
I went home, got on the computer and printed out all the information on the AANR Web page including the FAQ's and put them in an envelope. The next time I went to Mike's for lunch I gave her the envelope and told her to take it home and read the information.
The next time I saw her I asked her what she thought. She said she was still interested but didn't think her boyfriend would like her going nude around other people. I told her she ought to go and just surprise him with her all over tan when she got back.
Unfortunatly, the trip was sold out and no one had canceled so we didn't get to go. She was a student so she couldn't go on the Mexican cruise.
