Work up from that..

We might get some funny looks when we stroll into the local DA buck naked as it's not a naturist camp! hugegrins

Ha! Has anyone here been to a naturist camp? We spent two nights at a site in Croatia that had a naturist section at the one end of the complex. But in truth, although that was where their pitches were, they shared all the beach and site amenities with the rest of us... An enlightening experience!

We wandered onto a naturist beach once Al.

The experience wasn't enlightening, it was terrifying!!!

I didn't have to pretend I wasn't staring at the nubile young females, 'cos there weren't any. The youngest was about 50, and 18 stone was considered quite slim in that company!!!

One couple of ladies were playing volleyball, but once under way they couldn't stop running, as the rolls of fat were oscillating too much! One of them was in imminent danger of being knocked out - by a vicious uppercut from her own boobs!

I don't even want to think about the rear view, but I have never looked at an old cart horse in quite the same way since!

It was a seriously traumatic experience, after which I needed intensive counselling at the nearest bar! Nude young bodies can be beautiful as M. Rodin ably demonstrated, but when they get fat and flabby they are best kept hidden, for fear of putting small boys off their food and terrifying the odd stray dog!!

Sounds like your experiences were similar to mine Dave.. We had the added trauma of a cycle track running parallel to the beach, used by all the nudists. Once you've seen a group of blokes slowly cycling past nude it's a sight you won't forget..
However when a dozen female cyclists with an average age of 20 or so went past us that was when Mrs Al decided it was time we moved on...

This really made me laugh! hugegrins I imagine you must be young, and in good shape? Or maybe like him indoors who thinks anyone bigger than him is acceptable for barbed remarks! Of course, he also enjoyed your post and his favourite sport in the Olympics is the  ladies volleyball for some reason....... scratch head

Nope - old and wrinkly like my details say. shrugg

Still young enough is spirit (if not in the flesh) to also enjoy the ladies volleyball - apart from the ghastly whining American woman who did the commentary.

"Goooooood seeeeeeeerve!"   Somebody please pass the chuck bucket??

Quite ruined my concentration . . . . . . on the game! Whistle1

I started reading Paulmolds list with a sneer. "Look at this pile of stuff" I said to my dearest. But. Oh dear! Not only do we have 99% of the list in the van we have added a rechargeable vacuum cleaner. And a few radio 'essentials' for my other hobby. Oh and spare batteries. And battery powered PIR lights for night time trips to the loo. And a drive away awning. And a foldup seat, nearly forgot that. I NEED it all!
Most of the non food items stay in the van (apart from cleaning) all the time.
And I use a watering can. Less room than a 25ltr drum?
