Dude.

You live in CA. This is a thing in CA, haha. Nude anything (esp in Nor Cal) should not be surprising. People bike ride naked through Berkeley, I kid you not. Ocean beach? Nude people. Half Moon Bay beaches? Nude people (often wearing a fleece on top, and nothing on bottom, which is particularly weird.

I don’t partake myself, but it’s amusing that you live in CA and are surprised by this!

That is very bizarre. I’ve done alot of hiking and camping over the years but have yet to run into that! I would think hiking naked would not be very comfortable!

I probably would have had a heart attack, but something like this isn’t standard where I live. I would not participate. I am naked at home, and that’s about it for me.

Yeah, I’ve heard of this. It’s not just CA. It’s a thing. But I don’t think it’s really my thing. I’m all for skinny dipping and have about as much modesty as a 2 year old. But nude hiking seems like it would just lead to lots of bug bites, scratches and chaffing. Not my cup of tea. I actually wear long pants when I hike. But more power to them! Keeps life interesting. And glad it didn’t freak you guys out!

Haha.  Yeah…I wouldn’t want to hike naked.  I like hiking at high altitudes (above the treeline) and I can only imagine the sunburn….and bug bites.

I don’t have a problem with naked people, but it seems like naked + outdoors = lots of bug bites lol.

@Kandiss16: Exactly!  If I’m gonna be nude, I’ll be in the hot tub lol.

@ANGELaaimt:  Oww!  It hurts just to think about this!

I feel like I get injured enough when I hike fully clothed, I can’t imagine doing it while naked! Sunburns, bug bites, scratches! Ouch.

I get poison ivy very easily, to the point where I just avoid going outside in the summer whenever possible. So being on a hike naked…every inch of my body is itching just thinking about it…

@Kandiss16:  Hiking is SWEATY. Being naked and sweaty sounds awful for me (except for in the bedroom I guess, ha!)

I just went hiking yesterday and I can’t even imagine this. If the hike is challenging (like you said it was), wouldn’t any sane person want 1) support; 2) sweat-catchers, and 2) something to repel both the sun and the bugs? Good grief. I wear minimal clothing out, but that still means sports bra, tank top, and tennis skirt. And of course a backpack to carry my food and water.

Oh lord now I’m picturing a naked person with a big hiking backpack strapped to them, with the two front straps done up at chest and waist. Terrible. WHY DID YOU GIVE ME THIS MENTAL IMAGE.
