Rocky Mountain Naturists Swim and Pot Luck

For those who don't know, there are at least three organized clubs in the Denver Metro area, including the Rocky Mountain Naturists, Mountain Air Ranch, and Front Range Naturists.

The Rocky Mountain Naturists have a meeting at least once a month. Their next Swim and Pot Luck meeting is Saturday, April 5th, from 5pm to 10pm. They reserve a whole health club pool and members bring dinner to share. The location is convenient, located near I-25 and several bus routes in south Denver.

They have a lot of information on their web site at

Mountain Air Ranch Hot Tub Down for Maintenance

If you are thinking of going to MAR to enjoy the hot tub this week, think again. The hot tub was pulled out for maintenance and will be out of service until at least this weekend. Bob, Bill, George, and Glen pulled it out of the ground on Monday to repair a leak and other needed work. All of the jets are being replaced as well as a lot of the plumbing. Bob hopes to have it back online this weekend. So, a couple of 70 degree days were lost in the hot tub this week.

The sauna (with showers) and clubhouse are still available. Wildflowers are not up on the trails yet, but should be soon. I should have pictures in about two weeks.

In Search of All Things Nudist - A Nudist Typeface Font

So a gentleman named Craig Oldham has come up with
a typeface that has a nudist theme. Actually, its
a typeface with either fig leaves, pixelation, or
censor bars, so I'm not sure that its really nudist

Anyway, you can find more at

As a nudist, I prefer this font:

Nudism on Prime Time TV

If you watched "New Amsterdam" last night on its series premiere, the main character was swimming at the YMCA when his partner (police) arrived to talk to him. She remarked that the "Y" was closed, he said yes, and she remarked "and you're naked....", which he replied "Yes.". Good moment; the matter-of-factness of it was very well done. Nice to see prime time TV not getting stuck on tittilation, and just accepting nudity as a part of life.
For nearly 80 years, swimsuits at YMCA's were forbidden, but those rules changed back in the early 1970s. Too bad. Does anyone really enjoy wearing a wet bathing suit?

Nudists are good for the economy

Pasco county in Florida reported record hotel tax revenue in January 2008. Pasco is home to several nudist resorts, including Caliente and Paradise Lakes, as well as some nudist residential communities.
In Colorado, nudists pay lodging and sales taxes in six different counties, as well as property taxes on the resorts, hot springs, and hotels.

Yesterday (Saturday), temperatures in eastern Colorado were in the seventies, and nudist resorts saw a lot of business. Mountain Air Ranch had over 40 visitors, even with the swimming pool closed for the season. The staff at MAR even pulled out the snow shovels to move the rapidly melting snow off of part of the pool deck to make room for more lounges. The hiking trails at MAR were used by some, although there were some rapidly melting snow drifts still remaining in isolated spots. Glen has already been at work on trail maintenance.
