Yes we're going alone. We're gonna try it by ourselves first time around. Thanks though.

Well, you will hardly be alone at Hippie Hollow.
I find it rather comforting to see familiar faces when I revisit my favorite campground.
it can be much more fun to socialize with friends from Christian Naturist Village than experience the park in isolation from others.

Sadly, Travis County forbids people from bringing their children to Hippie Hollow.
Naturism is a movement that puts children at the forefront of our hearts and events. It is not an "Adult Activity".
And in the particular case of Hippie Hollow, the solution to misbehaving adults was for the county to concede defeat and ban children, rather than aggressively arrest the drunks and perpetrators of crude behavior.
I hope it is a positive experience for you, not sure what you'll find there.

We're doing the first time as test of the waters so to say. I realize there will be others there. :butbut: there's an old cliche that goes something like alone in a room full of people. For our first time, we'd like to be able to take things at a pace of our choosing. For some reason, It's more fun for us to try something new without pressure(not saying y'all would be that way). If we find we really like it, we just might then be a tad more social with it. I guess it's always been how we do it in my house.

Y'all have been awesome. I already have made some strides with some of the thoughts and thinking points in these forums. Pending this june, you may have two converts on your hands.

Go for it! I completely understand about being "alone" among strangers. Hope it's a blessed time for you both, and even if I did happen to be there whenever y'all were there, I'd just be another stranger alone. :)

Again, welcome, NudeDude92. While there is no command to go nude in the Bible (except the one-time command to the prophet Isaiah), nor is there any general command not to. That knowledge, with the known benefits of natural nudity, is enough for me to embrace it.

Hey, NudeDude92 you had raised a good issue.
On your profile page, With respect to Naturism for a Christian, Nude Dude 92 wrote:I would like to do it, and I have dabbled in it, but I am not yet convinced.

Frankly, I do not know of a superior website to support a Christian in investigating naturism. And Likewise that goes for others who might be inclined to express their interest even if they are not Christians. The ambiance here is pretty laid back, and while biblical and christian viewpoint is key to the approach here, no body is going to deliberately try to push such views on anyone here. It is more like a John 6:44 sort of thing.
Quoting Jesus, in John 6:44 John wrote: 44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
So it sort of works out like that both for naturism and religion here. So to the extent you are drawn to the two main themes here, folks here are only to happy to be supportive and answer your questions, offer advice, make suggestions and be supportive, friendly give advice when it is sought, and even offer a hand of fellowship and even extend invites in appropriate situations, especially as we get to know you and you get to know us. We're not doing a hard sell here on anything but there various degrees of fellowship as you grow into the mainstream here. Honest lively discussion is available here but not pushed on people. We are pretty much always willing to help where we can, you will find that is pretty much true of most nudists/naturists. Folks here are pretty open so, pretty much, what youi percieve by reading, is what you get. And from what I percieve of you from what you write, I think that you will find a home here.

I hear you. Honestly, the more I practice nudity in the home, the more I wish it were normal for more people. I hate keeping secrets.

Dateline: April 14, 2018. It's 35 degrees and snowing in KC. Doing outdoor chores the last few days. The enemy in my closet just became my friend. Brrr! :dizzy:

And here it is due t6 snow all day and Number 1 Son's band partner is trapped by an ice storm at a rest stop on the plains.

Grateful for a working furnace.

Me too! We are having a cold snap, getting as low as 40 degrees overnight and had to fire up the space heater to knock the chill off.

Over here, we're have a brief warmer spell. Two days of 70+ °F weather (delightful). Hoping Arkansas finally realizes its middle of april and stays this warm....

Well.... my report of hippie hollow. Since for some reason I am unable to post in the travel reviews section.

We just got back from a trip to Austin for our anniversary. (3 years! PTL!) While there we went to hippie hollow. My thoughts are as follows: I had no issues being nude in public. Once my shorts came off, they didn't go back on until we left. My wife on the other hand while she enjoyed swimming nude the old creepy fella there and the three clothed dudes who came for a peep show didn't exactly make her feel comfy. :dislike: As such she was back in her bikini bottom at least twice while out of the water. The weather was sunny, but very windy, and as a diver, I didn't exactly appreciate the high wind waves that were whacking the shore, and making it difficult to rest in the water between dives, so that's a downer. :argh: We are both willing to go again, but there is one thing I really wish they would do about the place and that's make it nude only not C/O. I feel like this would deter the majority of gawkers, and make it more appealing to people who don't appreciate feeling like they're being treated like some porno show live.

In short: final score: :dislike: 2.5/5 stars. It's a good place, but I'm not in love.

Glad you got your wife to go. Voyeurs are the big downside to public spaces. Since she enjoyed being nude, you might get her to go to a resort where the population is controlled and management maintains behavior standards.
