Well, it's easy to see that springtime in the AANR-West region is in full swing. As the weather warms, the trees bud, and the daffodils bloom, our minds may turn to gardening, hiking in the woods, outdoor sports, or maybe some skinny dipping at the pool.

If you haven't already tried skinny dipping at an AANR club or resort, now is the time to take the plunge. There is nothing more invigorating and refreshing than the feel of cool water caressing your skin - ALL of your skin. No textiles to disrupt the flow.

You'll also spend less time doing laundry, and you'll save even more time by not standing in the closet for an hour trying to put an outfit together.

Another excellent time to go au naturelle is bedtime. It has been proven by thousands of nudists (and some sleep experts, too) that you sleep better when you don't have a nightgown tangled under your
