I saw the film “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 visit a bare resort. I’d swam naked in Lake Mead often and some other spots and enjoyed the feeling of freedom you get being bare.
I made the decision to locate a nearby nudist facility and visit. My wife said she was not 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 could not wait to get undressed and join the folks in http://videonudism.com/hot . I really loved my visit and went back a few more times. The pool, hiking trails, spa and grounds are a fantastic spot to spend time. Being bare felt so natural I immediately adopted the theory.
My wife doesn’t share my excitement so my opportunities to see are reduced. My times at the nudist resort are a few of the most relaxing and pleasurable recreation I have ever done. I am definitely glad I acted on executing one of the items on my “bucket list.” I located fellow nudists to be a very friendly crowd.
Our first experience 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 eventually decided to go. She was genuinely a little fearful of getting naked in public. She had all the fears that are discussed on all the parks’ sites.
When we arrived at Whispering Pines, we were greeted by several naked folks at the gate. They grinned and gave directions to the parking area. So away we went into the sphere of social nudism. We drove past lots of folks that were naked as well. All of them grinned and waved like they knew you.
After we parked and got out of the vehicle, I started to take my clothes off. She looked at my like I was mad. “Are you getting nude right now?”
“I sure am; everyone else is so we should be too.” She started to take off her clothing as a woman pulled into the place next to us. Robin stopped and just stood there as the woman got out of her car and stripped, and grabbed her towel and cooled and gave a very fine hello to us. I think this removed all hesitation from Robin. She removed the rest and we walked to the pool place.
That was the start of a 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 locations. Now we’re getting ready to join one as members.
All I can declare is why did I wait so long to do this? It’s the top kind of outdoor recreation. Sun and atmosphere on the bare 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.

We’d just bought our first RV and were looking for somewhere close to try out the new RV. A Web search of nearby RV resorts found quite few places to go that were relatively close. I located Lilly Valley in Fort Erie, Canada and thought it seemed intriguing.
I was astounded when her only reply was “OK.”
I called and made reservations and we were on the way. About 45 minutes after we were there. Lilly Valley has a small gate and several naked males met me there and helped direct me on which way to turn to get in. By the time I got through the gate there were six nude guys with enough metal to construct their own battleship.
If you don’t like it we will leave. Inside 15 minutes we’d met a Postal Worker and his wife, a family with two kids, the owner, 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 trips are constructed 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 had booked our room in Jamaica to be on the Nudist side of the resort. I said what do you anticipate, http://videonudism.com/suntan 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 nudists and have remained so ever since, and by the way we did get married with clothes on.

Cradle to Grave
My first encounter may be somewhat different as compared to a few other folks. I imagine, given the time frame, I was about a couple of years old when I had my first memory of going to a “nudist camp.” It was somewhere in the Bay Area in California. We subsequently moved to Louisiana where there we no resorts or camps within a reasonable driving distance from our home. We did vacation at a few areas in Florida and Texas from about 1956 to 1964. My parents scarcely troubled to get dressed round the home 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 married a bit more often that I ‘d have liked, but all of my wives have become nudist or at least participated in my nudist actions. I’m an academic and one of my research areas has included research on the effects of a nudist life style on children (positive outcomes), and legal problems relative to use of public places by nudist (testified in several legal actions).
I think that one of the most positive outcomes of my life long experience as a naturist is that I am really comfortable with all sorts and kinds of folks.
Thus . . . my first encounter was atypical, but now 60 years later I ‘m still at it.
