  • Is there anyone in southern Illinois?

    I like to go for nude hikes in the Shawnee National Forest. Is there anyone else in this area? I also own 60 acres of rugged wilderness land for private hikes and camping.

    Wow! No replies. I guess I live in a total textile zone! what a shame.

      there are people from illinois on this site, i just think that most people have more fun corresponding on this site than actually getting together with other nudists. that's my take on the lack of posts on this topic. my two cents.....

        I think you are right David. I have tried several times with folks up here but it just does not happen for whatever reason. Oh well, life goes on. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

          I'm not in Southern IL, but West KY is nearby. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

          I think David may be right that some people like to correspond here more than to meet in person. There are a couple of possible reasons for that. One is that it's sometimes difficult to get away from spouse, kids, and job for even a few hours without having to account for the time. Another is that, unless you're meeting someone you already know offline or are going to a place that is explicitly clothing optional, some people are afraid of walking into a law enforcement trap.

          Just my 2?.

            A law-enforcement trap? Is everyone paranoid? Or should I be paranoid?

              i don't think vin is paranoid, but you know how society is wierd about nudity and a parent with kids of their own does not need the kind of trouble that can be had by meeting someone they do not know to get naked in a non-designated nudist area. it just sounds plain questionable. but as long as the two people are meeting at a nudist place or beach, than it should be fine to get together naked.

              as for people being to busy, i can relate....

                There is a safety issue in meeting anyone for the first time, especially in an isolated area (which is all we have in this part of the country). And maybe I am a little paranoid. It wouldn't be the first time someone has called me that. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                  Thanks, David, for your reply. There apparently is such a load of sexual "baggage" asscoiated with nudity that I am afraid we are all suffering from paranoia. It seems to be clear that you cannot disassociate nudity and sex no matter how many rules you try to put in place. Add "family" nudity and you can have a real mess thanks to the prevailing majority mindset of our society.

                  I just got done reading another thread about pedophiles and child porn and I can see where you could have a problem meeting folks outside of a designated public nudist place, but if it is in your own home or on your own private land then what is wrong with that? If I cannot be nude at home or meet privately with another person who is also a nudist then I guess I need to move to a different part of the planet, or maybe a different planet.

                  It seems as if there is no place for us nudists in the textile world except for our "reservations" or colonies. Whatever happened to non-discrimination?

                    yes- I have been wanting to experience social nudity but all the clubs I've inquired of are couples only and my wife refuses to go - I love the outdoors and would be open to getting together with if you're willing to deal with a beginner - chuck in cville

                        I will be spending several days (maybe weeks) in the Mt. Carmel area in the next couple of months. Would love to spend some quality nude time while there. If anyone knows of any venues in the southeastern Illinois or southwestern Indiana area please advise.
                        Thanks!

                          so is that collinsville or caseyville? seein' as how you're so close to saint louis, you should probably check out STLNudism at
                          groups.yahoo.com/group/stlnudism
                          they are open to singles, timid first-timers, etc. it's a pretty active group.

                            Thanks for the info KP. Illinois is just not nudist friendly.

                              well, it does have a few venues, but nothing in that part of the state. i haven't checked out beall woods state park, just south of town, but there might be some opps for nude hiking or swimming. can't say, though, because i've never been there. to get there, go south on route 1 and follow the signs neer keensburg.
