How else would you recognise him ?

 Ive seen him interviewed a few times....so maybe his face  ;)
Walking for me is an antidote to all that rushing around in life that sometimes happens.

Oh dear, what a shame, never mind

The worst thing that happened to me this year was in Kent when I walked for about 150yds along a narrow and overgrown path with my arms up in the air due to tall stinging nettles. One nettle stung me under the arm! The nasty little barbs pierced straight through my baselayer, it was so painful!

I'd not heard of the Naked Rambler until just now.

A few weeks ago, my wife and I were walking along the Greensand Way in Kent when we saw what we first thought was a naked hiker coming towards us. As he got closer, we could see he was wearing Speedos and boots, so definitely weird but not naked. I've just googled 'Naked Rambler' but I don't think it was the same person.

.... he was wearing Speedos and boots, ....


Was it Bigfoot Mike?:

..... I wander across the Cairngorm plateau in mid winter wearing my Speedos.


 :D

No expense spared in pursuit of a bargain ;)

I donít actually wear Speedos. I was just using them to make a point.




Actually that could sound worse than wearing them :-[
