Were I trying to persuade someone to accompany me to one of those clothing-optional vacation spots, I doubt that “Think what you’ll save on baggage charges!” would be much of a selling point:
“If more air travelers take a stand and a nakation in 2010, it could send a message to the airlines using checked and unchecked baggage fees as a way to charge the vacationing masses more money in this tight economy,” Erich Schuttauf, executive director of the American Association of Nude Recreation, told USA Today. “All you’ll need for the week (sunscreen, cap, sunglasses, shoes and toiletries) can fit in a small carry-on that will fit under the seat, avoiding even carry-on bag fees.”
But then you’d have to explain to them why you have a 10-day round-trip ticket and only one bag. And explaining things to airlines or worse, explaining things to the Transportation Security Administration will put you in a bad mood before you even take off, so to speak.
Oh, well. Carry on, my wayward sunworshippers.
