Sunrover visitors welcome

We are no longer renting out our future Northern California retirement house. Fix up time started spring 2016. In January a large tree fell across the back yard and the top of the tree landed in the pool. Luckily, our house was not hit, but the pool fence and a dog fence were demolished. We […]

Truly Nude and Super Natural by John Mollan

Nude, clothing-optional or textile? This a question that many a nudist has to resolve before using a beach, hot springs, or resort. Don’t you wish that next time you visited a nudist club, that the people you encounter there would actually be nude? Are you tired of attending nudist events to find the majority of […]

Gathering at the creek

August 7-9 weekend turned out great for those who managed to find our way to J & L’s farm near Lebanon. I arrived on Saturday early afternoon, and finding no one around the house I went to the faint sounds I heard coming from the direction of the creek.

J & L got this wonderful […]

State Capitol Tour

On December 10th, several members from both Bare Spirits and Sun Rovers met at the State Capitol for a tour that was led by Mike H. The capitol building was decorated gorgeously with plenty of trees, lights and many school choirs were there to sing Christmas Carols. After taking a wonderful tour and spending a […]

Widmer Brewery

On January 3, 2015, Don and I met up with several members from Sun Rovers and joined them for a tour of Widmer Brewery in Portland. Mary planned a surprise reunion for Don with his nephew and niece and Don’s nephew gave the tour for the group. We learned a lot of interesting information and […]

Trip to Lake Como, Florida

In November 2014 Don and I took a trip to Florida and had the opportunity to visit Lake Como in Lutz, FL. I’m sad to say we were not able to enjoy all the amenities as it seemed Florida had a different type of weather planned for us. We did stay at the motel and […]

Yearning for sun......

Yearning for some warm sun on my nude bod I took the redeye to Orlando, picked up a rental car and drove south to Kisseme and to one of the premier sun resorts Cypress Cove – where I had been two years ago during the spring meeting of the Nudist Clubhouse. This was a fun […]

The Ice Cream Social

While in California during June 2014 I attended my first River Dippers event. River Dippers is a Naturist Society affiliate. They have gatherings at natural locations to take skinny dips, but they also meet at host houses like our travel clubs do.

The Ice Cream Social is held at a member couple’s private residence and […]

...before the Internet

I was recently going through old files while cleaning house and in one file generically called “Correspondence” I came across 4 responses to inquiries I had made about joining a nudist club – in 1982. I remember joining ASA for one year, but I had forgotten that I had written clubs for information. I guess […]

Mountaindale Cabin Crawl and Jam

The June 22 BS event was at Mountaindale Sun Resort. Though the weather was not primo, it was warm enough and dry enough on Saturday to do the Cabin Crawl naturally. For those who have not been to one, a Cabin Crawl is a multi-course meal served at several of the resident’s cabins. You travel […]
