Once, on a hot summer day, we went for a hike in the woods of Delaware Water Gap. We just picked a random trail on the map and had no idea what lied ahead.
Blackberry bushes provided a sweet start! But in about an hour after we left the road, we noticed some houses in the middle of the woods. Who would live there without proper road access??
Right, no one! Those were haunted houses!
What was especially weird that there were some gardening tools and equipment around, as if the settlement was abandoned in haste.
There is definitely an interesting story behind all that, perhaps a car with several bullet holes in the door could provide a clue as to what might have happened…
The door was invitingly open, but I don’t think it is going anywhere!
We left the place puzzled; in a few minutes we were more keen on pretty plants around us,
and soon the trail brought us to the Delaware River.
We couldn’t find a proper trail to get down to it, so we had to go through the bushes and ferns. But we managed to get a nice spot for a lunch break and just needed to make sure we would remember where to go back to the trail.
Wait for the next blogpost, those Pennsylvanian woods will only get queerer 😉
In the season of the World Naked Bike Ride across the Northern Hemisphere, there is another chance for active naturists to become also naturist activists: Bouncing Buns 7k Trail Race in Pennsylvania for American Cancer Society on the 23rd of June, Saturday next week! 7km is the longest distance that I’ve seen for a naked or clothing-optional race (correct me, if I’m wrong), it’s good to be challenged, moreover for a good cause.
The event is organized by Pretzel City Sports and you can register for the race at their website. Your $30 registration fee will support American Cancer Society, and afterwards you get an opportunity to hang out at Sunny Rest naturist resort, where the trail race will take place. It’s a great opportunity to run just the way you like. The event is clothing optional, and we’ll certainly opt for the style of the [original] Olympic runners 😉
If you plan to stay in the area and wouldn’t like to wear anything on your sweaty self after the race, there is a couple more options besides Sunny Rest: a family-friendly nudist camp Beechwood Lodge and gay campground ‘the Woods‘.
Hope to see some of my readers there!
