It absolutely was my first experience at a “Landed Nudist Club”.

It was at a pastoral facility now called Drake’s Ridge in rather rural Southern Indiana. I arrived early Friday evening with strategies to camp Friday and Saturday nights. I had a Nissan pickup with a high-rise cap which I ‘d outfitted as a one man sleeper for camping. It turned out to be a warm late spring day as well as the weather looked like it was really going to be showery. I checked in, and was assigned a spot to camp. I instantly undressed before I did anything else. After all, that was why I was there.
When I has finished setting up my “campsite” I strolled around the grounds a bit. There weren’t a lot of folks there yet, but the ones who were, were quite friendly. was open, but being early in the year, the water was plenty cold, despite the warmness of the evening. As it got dark, I wasn’t really prepared to go to bed yet. I noticed that there was smoke coming from the chimney at the lodge.

It was still drizzly, but not chilly whatsoever. Still, I believed that a fire might be fine to drive off the dampness. With that thought I got a book from my things and headed for the lodge. Inside there were several chairs and sofas in a semi-circle round the fireplace. I put my towel down on one (nudists consistently carry towels to sit on), sat, and opened up my book. People drifted in and out, and I spoke to a number of them, including Ellen, the owner/manager who was still waiting for people to come and check in. She turned out to be rather active in the national naturist organizations, and was also a political activist who had done a lot to further the cause of nudism in different legal arenas.
It was during this time that a van pulled up outside and in came a family. They consisted of Mother and Dad with three kids. There was a 13 or 14 year old girl, a boy of 11, and a younger girl who appeared to be about . Overhearing their conversation with Ellen, it was evident that they were regular members, and had a long-lasting camper already set up. The kids were obviously fidgety after the car ride, and the parents looked like two people who had worked all day before starting on their weekend excursion, in other words; tired. It wasn’t very late yet, so the parents sat down on a couch opposite me and began to relax. The children, on the other hand were in no mood to take a seat. As kids usually do, they had their own program. “Mom, can we go to the frog pond?” After a moments thought she replied, “That’s good, but take your clothes off first.”
I was instantly struck by several ideas. First of all was, “What a truly odd thing to hear a Mother say to her children in a public place. The 2nd thing was, “That makes lots of sense.” It wouldn’t matter a bit if the kids got wet and boggy playing in the rain. They would rinse right off. Here was a Mom who wouldn’t have a lot of laundry to do after the weekend. My third realization was a feeling of belonging. I was eventually in a world that made sense to me. I was one of a group who had managed to lay aside the artificial, and live in a way that was comfortable and natural.
