My Experience At A Nudist Resort

I came across a few things lately that reminded me of my time as both a guest and a bartender at a nudist resort in Palm Springs, California several years ago. This place is nothing like most people think other than clothing is optional.

But first, as I was enjoying a Coffee IPA at the Texas Oasis Brewing Company on the patio overlooking Lake Travis, I look to my right. I was curious to see if there were any parks in that area where I could hike and venture around. I decided to check on google maps and found out that the park I spotted is called Hippie Hollow Park, which is a clothing optional park. I just laughed, thought about “visiting” but decided not to….it’s too cold outside! Lame excuse right?

Finding out about Hippie Hollow Park reminded me of the reason I came to visit Austin, I kept getting “signs” in threes. However, I’m not sure what to do about this one. Ha!

I had received an email from the resort not too long ago about the upcoming New Year’s Day bash and I just happened to stumble across a Facebook post recently in regards to someone that recently passed away, who was actually the general manager who interviewed and hired me at that resort. RIP Michael Williams.

So the place I bartended at is called Desert Sun Resort.

I worked there as a morning bartender for about 6 months and I have to say, it was an interesting place to work but I left because I ended up going to school full time and could only work in evenings. I applied for the job as a second job and just had a feeling I was going to get the job because I visited the resort as a guest several times to work on getting rid of my tan lines and to enjoy the mountain views in the pool areas. And well, I landed the job the same day.

Even though I visited the resort as a guest, I was fully clothed as a bartender. It’s a health code for obvious reasons and to be honest I would not want a nude bartender making my drink or delivering my food. There’s just something gross and strange about that.

I’ve met all sorts of people there from bartending and yes, I’ve seen it all! However, as the months went by, I became accustomed to the environment, so nothing came as a surprise to me anymore.

When I would visit as a guest, I wouldn’t pay attention to anyone besides the few people I came across in one of the many pool areas the resort has to offer. But when I was bartending, I couldn’t help but pay attention to everyone. But overall, it’s very chill and definitely not some kind of swinger resort. I actually interviewed at one of those places not knowing what I was getting myself into and it was a bit overwhelming for my taste so I declined the offer for the job.

Desert Sun Resort is actually a sophisticated resort, so pervs and such are not welcomed there. They take privacy very seriously and want you to feel comfortable. You have to go through a mini interview to gain access to the resort, which is nice. I highly recommend the resort and maybe one day I will go back to visit again as a guest.

Hello Austin, Texas!

Yep, I’m here!

The decision to come here was based on some intuitive messages I received during my 9 day stay in Sedona, Arizona. And the decision was made on my birthday.

First, was from a blog I had read, in regards to Austin, that was published by fellow blogger, Mackenzie. Next, was meeting a bartender in Sedona, name Austin. And finally, I had watched the movie, Lone Survivor, in my Jeep the night before Thanksgiving. I was really intrigued by the “lone survivor” Marcus Luttrell, so I googled him and noticed the picture of him on Wikipedia was at a book festival in Austin.

Happy Thanksgiving Day!

I know this holiday is being celebrated in the United States today, but I wish everyone from all around the world a Happy Thanksgiving Day!

To me, Thanksgiving Day is more than just stuffing your face with a whole bunch of festive Thanksgiving food, it’s actually taking the time to give thanks to everything and everyone you are thankful for with deep appreciation, even though this should be celebrated every day. However, it’s a well celebrated holiday here in the states, so let’s go with that.

So, what am I thankful for with deep appreciation?

Camping in My Jeep and Some Intentions

Hey everyone!

I thought I would give you all a little tour of my Jeep, Ringo, and where I’ve been camping for the past week. I’m not very good with the vlogging stuff but, to be honest, I don’t want to. Ha! I’d like to stick with blogging.

So, I did leave California once again. I wanted to be practical and “responsible” a couple of months ago by going back to picking up the same job and the same shit I left a year ago, only to be reminded of why I left the first time.

Blogging Milestones

Today marked my 200th blog post. Yay! I was also reminded of my 1 year anniversary with WordPress.com. Double Yay! And I’ve gained almost 400 followers. Triple Yay!

I wasn’t sure what to expect over the last year when I pulled out my credit card to pay for this blog but all I remember is that I was completely drunk off wine and I just wanted to write because a lot of weird things were happening to me and I wanted to share my thoughts and experiences.

Astrology, My Natal Birth Chart and Some Randomness

I’ve been wanting to blog about this for a while but didn’t because I felt caged in the hermit mode type of energy that sits in the corner and feels sorry for itself. Plus astrology was just one of those spiritual aspects I’ve wanted to pipe down on. But recently, I’ve picked it back up.

So now that a huge astrological shift has happened, I can feel it, big time! It’s Jupiter returning home into Sagittarius! I have been waiting for this transit since October 2017 and it has finally come.
