Spring Break - Trial Baloon - Getting There

Postby Bare_Truth » Fri Feb 17, 2017 12:10 pm

Before long it will be spring break and most colleges schedule that break about the same time. The Gulf Coast being the general region of destination for quite a few, an idea has been floated and this post is intended to test the waters to see what interest there might be and what suggestions might be offered to use this opportunity.

We here in Missouri, ("we" being a loose coalition of naturists in south central Missouri), would like to investigate the possibility of providing a stop over for those who might be in transit to various spring break destinations. Given the number of people who have had enough of the harshness of winter and also in need of a break from their studies. and are taking advantage of spring break albeit the distance and expense of the travel and lodging may be difficult, we thought there might be an opportunity to help out the clothing optional travelers. Introducing this here on CNV is with deliberate intent as this is still in the brainstorming stage, and we do not wish to find ourselves hosting a debauch instead of a recreational stop over for those hold Christian naturist compatible values.

However as none of us are currently college students our first problem is that we do not know when spring break occurs this year but after sorting the data found at https://www.studentcity.com/plan-a-trip/overview/when-my-spring-break we find that the earliest spring breaks start February 25th and the latest appear to end March 26 With the distribution of starting dates being:
Feb 25, ........ 3%
March 4, ..... 28%
March 11 .... 50%
March 18 .... 19%
And in each case the break appears to last about a week.

Expressions of interest in this as well as suggestions and considerations we need to make would be appreciated.
I never met anyone that I could not learn something from.

Baretruth,

You might want to consider what is already available in the Florida panhandle area, with the possibility of working with them, building on existing infrastructure:

http://www.baybares.com/ Bay Bares is a 40-acre campground near Panama City.
http://www.riviera-resort.com/ Riviera Naturist Resort is near Pensacola.
http://www.hiddenlakecamp.com Hidden Lake Resort is also close to Pensacola (a bit north of Riviera).

http://tallahasseenaturally.org Tallahassee Naturally is an official AANR Travel Club, and an affiliate of The Naturist Society. We lease a private lake every weekend and organize trips to secluded wilderness areas. Membership is about 75 adults. has always maintained about a 15% student membership--reportedly the highest in the nation. Some of the students go home for the summer; others are here all year. There has frequently been a student on the board of directors, and the club offers substantial student discounts.

We offer two events mainly for students. Our annual College Greek Athletic Meet occurs shortly after Spring Break, and attracts some students from faraway campuses. And during the warm months, we offer Full-Moon Skinny-Dips. Check our calendar for dates. For meeting place and time, contact PAULLEVALLEY@peoplepc.com or (850) 222-1886. Students from Florida State University, Florida A & M University, Tallahassee Community College, and Valdosta State University attend these. The full-moon swims are free. You can expect a campfire, marshmallows--sometimes a drum circle.

If you attend Florida State University, we even have a group on campus called Naturally FSU. It is today the only officially recognized student naturist group in the nation, and the fourth that ever existed. We are not nude on campus.

The club's private lake is also available for skinny-dipping and sunbathing every weekend year-round. Sunday is usually the bigger day. From April through October, the last Sunday of each month is a picnic, so bring food to share. With a $22 annual membership, students can get in for $5 a day or 75 for an entire year. (Non-members pay $15 a day after their first visit.) There is no charge for overnight camping. Tell your friends that their first visit is free. The first visit is also clothing-optional for women.
