I viewed the movie “The Bucket List” and it made me think of my own personal bucket list. One of many things I ‘d always desired to do was see a nude resort. I’d swam naked in Lake Mead regularly and a few other locations and enjoyed the feeling of freedom you get being naked.
I chose to find 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 up with the folks at the pool. I truly enjoyed my visit and went back a couple more times. The pool, hiking trails, watering place and property are a great place to spend time. Being naked felt so natural I quickly adopted the notion.
My wife doesn’t share my excitement so my chances to see are reduced. My times at the nudist resort are some of the most relaxing and enjoyable recreation I’ve ever done. I ‘m certainly glad I acted on executing one of the items on my “bucket list.” I found fellow nudists to be an extremely friendly bunch.
Why Did We Wait So Long?
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 finally decided to go. She was really a little fearful of getting naked in public. She had all the anxieties that are discussed on all of the parks’ websites.
When we arrived at Whispering Pines, we were greeted by several nude people at the gate. They seemed so at ease standing there and welcoming us to the park. They smiled and gave directions to the parking area. So off we went into the sphere of beach blondes . We drove past a lot of folks that were naked as well. All of them grinned and waved like they understood you.
After we parked and got out of the vehicle, I began to take my clothing away. She looked at my like I was insane. “Are you becoming naked right now?”
“I certainly am; everyone else is so we should be too.” She began to remove her clothing as a woman pulled into the place 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 a very nice hello to us. I believe this removed all reluctance from Robin. She removed the remainder 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’ve met a number of the friendliest folks at both areas. 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 is the greatest form of outdoor recreation. Sun and air on the naked skin is wonderful 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’d just bought our first RV and were looking for somewhere close to try the new RV. A Web search of nearby RV resorts located very few places to go that were relatively close. I located Lilly Valley in Fort Erie, Canada and thought it seemed intriguing.
When my wife came home and asked if I found around I told her there were a few that were more than 100 miles away, however there was a “nuddie” resort only across the Peace Bridge.
I was astounded when her only reply was “OK.”
I called and made reservations and we were on the way. About 45 minutes later we were there. Lilly Valley has a little gate and several bare 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 nude guys with enough metal to construct their very own battleship. Lilly Valley regulars were at that time into piercings.
As I started 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 enjoy http://kazyz.com 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 children, the owner, and various other individuals. No one paid any attention to any parts except for the portions of the RV.
We’ve been nudists since then. We also felt the demand for AANR so much we became Premier members and then Life members. Now all of our excursions are constructed around going from one nudist resort to another.

Visit our siteTo 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 anticipate, we are on the bare side of the resort?
After about 3 hrs of looking and laughing she came to conditions 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 could be a bit different as compared to various other folks. My 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 subsequent memory comes from sometime after we moved to Ohio (about 1954). We then moved to Louisiana where there we no resorts or camps within a fair driving distance from our home. We did holiday at a few locations in Florida and Texas from about 1956 to 1964. My parents scarcely bothered to get dressed round the house and my mother spent a least a few hours a day, during good weather, sun bathing in our quite large backyard. I’ve been wed a bit more often that I would 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 issues relative to use of public areas by nudist (testified in various legal actions).
I think that one of the most favorable results of my life long experience as a naturist is that I’m very comfortable with all sorts and kinds of folks. I have learned for the most part to just take folks as they come and they do come in all shapes and sizes.
So . . . my first experience was atypical, but now 60 years later I ‘m still at it.
