Skinny Dip World Record

by

A word to the clothed: you won't be joining your fellow equestrian enthusiasts this weekend should you decide to trot up to Bare Backer's Mountain Retreat, a 130-acre nudists' hangout outside of Boise.

On Saturday, July 10, at 3 p.m. Eastern Nudist Time (that's 1 p.m. Mountain Nudist Time), folks at the Bare Backer's Nudist Club will link arms with nudists around the country to attempt a new Guinness World Record for the most people simultaneously skinny-dipping. The American Association for Nude Recreation sponsored a similar event last year, which drew 13,648 participants--or 27,296 total buttcheeks--into pools, lakes and rivers across the country.

 The Bare Backers will also host an open house on Saturday, during which you can check out their solar-heated swimming pool and hot tub (no suits allowed) along with the clubhouse and rentable cabin. Why all this fuss about birthday suits, you might be wondering? On the Bare Backers' FAQ page they answer that question, rather eloquently:

"Without clothes, social class distinctions disappear and we are all accepted regardless of physical size, shape or body condition."

Saturday, July 10, 1 p.m., FREE, To reserve a spot at the skinny-dipping party or get directions to the retreat, call 208-322-6853 or e-mail bareidaho@yahoo.com.
