RE:Caught Hiking Nude

I love being nude outdoors, so nude walks in the country is a great way to achieve this. I do usually try to pick areas where you dont tend to come across many other people, but it does happen sometimes. It isnt technically illegal to just be naked in public in England so i usually just carry on as i am in just my shoes. Some people will say hello, others may want to chat a little longer. Im sure it is easier for a nude woman or couple than say a single guy.

More power to your elbow, your last sentence is so very true, I don't see it ever changing either.

RE:Caught Hiking Nude

I think that the term "caught" is missed used in this context. I would suggest that better term would be encounter. As someone who has hiked nude for decades i have had hundreds of encounters, with only one of tose that I would consider to be negative. That was during a group Solstice hike on the AT in VT. The first of the group who were a couple of the women and a male meet a middle aged female through Hiker, who didn't approve of the lack of clothing. When I encounter others hiking I greet them with a friendly hello etc.. As for being "caught" I have been caught in the rain while hiking nude.

Agreed, the term "caught" is often used, as if we were being bad. It's not just in this context but in general. This is not a hand-in-the-cookie-jar event, it is, as well noted, an encounter with a textile who may or may nto approve. When I first started freehiking, I kept shorts handy and would scramble to get dressed. Then I realized that I was not in the wrong (except in places where it is expressly illegal) and I didn't need to jump around on one foot while I tried to put on shorts. These days, weather permitting, I hike naked where it's accepted and with a kilt where it's not.
