Pack Just the Bare Necessities for a Nudist Cruise From L.A. to Mexico

January 18, 2003|Steve Harvey

This is a good time for those who like to travel light, extremely light. I wrote the other day about an ocean cruise for nudists, organized by Bare Necessities Tour & Travel of Austin, Texas, that leaves the port of L.A. in March for a 10-day jaunt (streak?) down the coast of Mexico. And now comes the announcement that Castaways Travel of Houston is organizing a nude airline flight, departing for Cancun from Miami on May 3.

I swear I'd be tempted to take a nude flight out of LAX. At least the security screening would be quicker than usual.

*

Just wondering: Is it really a nude flight if you wear a seat belt?

*

Speaking of exhibitionists: Mary Ann Ruiz of Chino spotted a listing evidently intended for those who like to be the center of attention (see accompanying).

*

Not the best seatmate for a nude flight: Sylvia Sullivan of Thousand Oaks says she was driving to Big Bear when she saw a sign that seemed to announce that an annoying individual was ahead (see photo). Sullivan added: "A single friend of mine said, 'I've dated a few of those, but they didn't advertise.' "

*

Collecting all the evidence? Sandra Walker of Temple City noticed that a trash company had an unusual request regarding her payment stub (see accompanying).

*

Big Brother of the business world: Ed Hirsch came upon a grocery store's sign that seemed to warn there was no escaping it (see photo).

*

Holy rollers: On the subject of what Jesus would drive, Floyd Ross of Ontario doubted that it would be an SUV. Ross (along with several other readers) pointed out that in the Bible, "Acts 1:13 names the 12 Apostles, and Verse 14 says, 'These all continued with one Accord ... ' "

*

Leaving an imprint: The police log of the Coastline Pilot said a resident went outside to raise holy heck with "a speeding vehicle. When officers arrived, the driver claimed the man banged his shoe against the car window."

*

Just say neigh! An Ontario mansion became a brothel recently for a scene in the unreleased racehorse film "Seabiscuit." Columnist David Allen of the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin reported: "Tobey Maguire, Jeff Bridges and Chris Cooper were here for two days for the brothel scene. My fingers are crossed that Seabiscuit wasn't involved. It's so hard to find heroes in the world of sports anymore."

*

miscelLAny: For your what-will-they-think-of-next file, Patrick Derby of Manhattan Beach saw a magazine ad for a real "breakthrough product": a storage box "with no assembly required."
