Thanks again for being part of it this year. Olive Dell Ranch is open all year, so come by again and do some hiking, running, camping, or just relaxing by the pool. Next year the Beer Mile and Bare Burro will be Saturday April 27 and Sunday April 28. Look forward to welcoming you back then.
Not Too Wet, Still Wild
Despite being the coolest and dampest Bare Burro ever, over 250 people turned out for the annual event, with over 200 of them participating in the run. There was about 5 minutes of rain, 10 minutes of sun, and just as many happy smiles as always.
This was a highly competitive year, with 25 finishers coming in under 30 minutes. That may not sound too fast, but when you consider it’s a challenging and technical trail run with LOTS of hills, it’s very impressive. We also had new course records set. A first time participant set the fastest time by a woman at 24:28, placing her 1st for women, and 5th in the overall run. And another first timer set the record for running barefoot at 32:42. Full race results can be found on the Olive Dell Ranch website.
This year photos were taken at the finish line, and for all award winners. If you haven’t received the low res watermarked photos yet, you can request them HERE. If you received the low res versions and want to purchase the high res, just click the Buy Now button below. It’s $7.50 for the photos.

A Top Ten Thing To Do Nude – Visit a Nude Beach
Since we get to do lots of nude things (hey somebody has to do it), we thought about the Top Ten Things To Do Nude in 2010.
Two of the Top Ten Things involve beaches:
#2 Go to a Nude Beach and Learn To Surf
July 25, 2010 for the Black\’s Beach Surf Event
There’s a nude beach close to just about everyone. As for surfing, you can try body surfing, boogie boarding, board surfing, wind surfing. The point is to get out, be active, have fun and see how great it feels to enjoy nude recreation. If you happen to live (or visit) Southern California, we offer nude surf lessons in the summer. So make plans to visit a nude beach this summer. It’s time to expose yourself to something new.
Anyone and everyone is invited to participate in the Blacks Beach Nude Surf Event on July 25, 2010
#6 Compete in the Blacks Beach Nude Surf Event
Every summer there is a nude surf event at Black’s Beach in San Diego. Thousands of nude people on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Warm water, sunshine and a surf event where anybody and everybody is welcome to participate. There are prizes for the winners, t-shirts, a beach bbq, fun, games and a chance to create memories for a long, long time. The date is July 25, 2010. Location is Black’s Beach in San Diego, and you can see a short video about the event here. See you there!
We’re happy to see that the Terra Cotta Inn in Palm Springs just celebrated their 15th birthday – in their birthday suits of course.
It’s a challenge to keep any small business going for 15 years. It’s lots of hard work, long hours and dedication. You’ve got to have a good product, great services and develop a strong and loyal base of customers. Full credit to owners Tom and Mary Clare that they’ve done all of that – and made it look easy.
If you’ve never been, Terra Cotta is a boutique nudist resort in Palm Springs, California. It’s got beautiful gardens, a sparkling pool, oversized Jacuzzi, tranquil waterfall garden, outdoor massage pavilion and very well appointed guest rooms. They serve breakfast each morning, and Tom’s famous bow-tie afternoon wine and appetizers.
If you’ve been before you know all that. Now the only thing you need to figure out is when you’re going back for nude rest and relaxation, and congratulate and thank Tom and Mary Clare for 15 great nude years – and wish them (and all of us) many, many more.
Had a great labor day weekend. Due to schedules it ended up being four days off. Weather was good, ocean water in California was remarkably warm, and that end-of-summer glow added some emphasis on how great it is to be able to surf naked, play frisbee, walks miles along beach and experience freedom. It’s an unlikely solution to all the troubles that confront the world, but if more people would take off their clothes and dive into a warm ocean, that would be a lot less stress, and a lot more people realizing how much we share – rather than how different we are.
Burning Man Naked Freedom
Another year that I missed Burning Man, but it’s on the calendar for the future. I see Burning Man as a celebration that being different is actually totally normal. A place where you can invent, express, explore and exhibit who and what you are. Sometimes clothes and paint and props are part of our expression, and sometimes they aren’t. Burning Man seems to encourage and accept everyone. In a world that has come to believe that hurling insults and fearing others because they’re different is normal – maybe the community that emerges every year on the playa – is the world order we need to pursue.
So some year I’ll be there, but for this year I’ll think of the fun of swimming naked in the ocean, enjoying the smiles on hundreds of naked people as they do the same, or the energy of a naked water volleyball game in the late summer sunshine.
I saw this article in the paper and thought it was totally appropriate. Mind, Body, Relaxation, Nudity. They all go together nicely.
Nude yoga, or naked yoga, is trailing through the US like wildfire. More common in the underground yoga world, naked yoga is now being practiced by celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow and Nicolas Cage.
But that’s not it. Celebrity stars Halle Berry, Jennifer Lopez, Rita Wilson and Naomi Watts have all been catching on to the heat wave of naked yoga.
Reports the Hindustan Times, “The technique involves practicing conventional yoga postures without a stitch on.”
Adds the Times, “Exponents claim it liberates people from their inhibitions and helps unification of the mind, body and soul.”
Nude yoga clubs, studios and social networks are popping up across the States and Canada. Nude classes being profiled are offered under class names or catagories like ‘Sensual Candlelit Nude Yoga,’ ‘Bare Energy Yoga,’ ‘Naked Yoga Basics,’ Goddess Pelvis Ritual for Women’ and ‘Lovers’ Workout’.
