It has been four years that this two year project has been going strong. Happy Birthday TheFreeRangeNaturist.org.
We’re gonna keep goin’…naturally.
Thanks for joining us on our adventures, for following and all the thumbs up. We hope that you are becoming more and more liberated, too.
The site first published on the 14th of July, more or less. We hope that you all get to celebrate “International Nude Day” and/or “National Nude Day” and/or the culmination of “Nude Recreation Week” this Sunday!

P.S. A two part solstice hike story in the White Mountains is coming next week.
I just took off my robe. I noticed a change in posture.
Yesterday, I was walking around the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show in my wrangler denim jeans. I had my hands in my pant’s pockets, which is a slouch.
