My first Experience with Nudism At The Grateful Garcia Gathering Where Nudists Roam Free!

Nudism In Wisconsin – Garcia Style
Wisconsin Nudism – My first experience with nudism and with being around nudists was in the summer of 2012 at the Grateful Garcia Gathering in Wisconsin. I hadn’t really given that fact much thought until my buddy and I finally arrived at the gathering in Wisconsin. It was my first festival and I really didn’t know what to expect.
Within the first few minutes, it became quite clear that this isn’t your typical music festival. Nudists roamed wherever they liked. Piercings adorned areas that are typically hidden from view and painted naked breasts were abundant. Although this was very unexpected, I can’t really say it was unnerving in the slightest. This was a music festival – a place of freedom and love.
The first night was hit with a very violent storm. A few tents were destroyed and some of the vendors’ merchandise was damaged, but overall everything was handled quite well. My Buddy and I didn’t have our tent set up yet, so we met up early in the morning after finally drying off and slept in the car.
After that tumultuous night we decided it was time to set up camp. We had brought a large 10×10 canvas tent that neither of us had set up before. As you might imagine, we had quite a bit of trouble setting it up. Two of our camping neighbors, a husband and wife, who had just shown up that morning came over and enthusiastically helped us out. I didn’t think much about the couple until later that night when I walked over to their campsite. As it turns out, the husband was a nudist.
He was very open about naturism and the fact that he was a nudist. When he was a child, his mother could never keep clothes on him. To him, the freedom of being naked was so appealing that it was almost irresistible. Despite him being naked, the conversations between us weren’t awkward at all. He was simply expressing himself, just as anyone else does through their choice of what they wear or hairstyle, just that in this case he was completely nude.
Nudists are too quickly labeled as being sick, perverted, exhibitionists and the like. In reality, these people are just like anyone else. They simply enjoy being naked! Everyone should visit a nudist resort or a nudist beach at some point in their life, even if they wish to stay clothed. Visiting such a place can be seen as a lesson in tolerance, open-mindedness, freedom and the human spirit.
