Kick Off Summer, And Your Clothes With National Naked Hiking Day.
Yes, it really does seem that there is a "national" or "world" holiday for everything. For instance, today is American Eagle Day, National Ice Cream Soda Day, National Vanilla Milkshake Day, and my favorite... Hike With A Geek Day. Which actually brings me to my point, not only is tomorrow the first day of summer, but it's also National Naked Hiking Day!
That's right, every year on the first day of summer, we celebrate, or not, National Naked Hiking Day. It's technically an unofficial holiday, according to VeryWellFit.com, but I think it's one we can all get behind (ugh...prepare yourself for some really bad naked puns). Now, unlike the skinny-dipping story I did the other day, I would imagine the subtleties of naked hiking are a bit more pronounced.
When you're skinny-dipping, you're mostly under water. The only real danger comes getting in an out of the water, or an errant sunfish or perch looking for a small nibble. But if you're hiking naked, you are baring it all. And not just to the bears! There's poison ivy to contend with, biting insects, and getting sunburns where the sun don't shine.
But if you're still gonna go for it, and want to show how buff you are in the buff, then you may want to see if you can do it on private parts (ugh) of someone's land that you know. Otherwise, if old Johnny or Jenny Game Warden finds you, you may have a fun time trying to explain why you think this is a good idea. You may be exposing yourself to more than just the elements.
I suppose you could just say you saw it on the internet. And as we know, everything you read on the internet is true, right? So, do your thing. No shame. And just maybe this time, with no clothes.
