Travelites, Inc., founded in 1987, is a non-landed social nudist club, based in Columbia, South Carolina.
Affiliated with the American Association for Nude Recreation and The Naturist Society,Travelites
is an active club whose members enjoy get-togethers at members' homes (some have pools, hot tubs, volleyball
courts, trails), area lakes and rivers for boating, canoeing and swimming, as well as at landed nudist
clubs in our area and in other states. Travelites also plans clothed events such as being a part of
community service projects, outings to restaurants, museums, and the zoo.

sincere people. It's great having so many best friends. Based in South Carolina, our members come from
numerous states and range in age from infancy to well past retirement.

so bring the entire family. Families, couples, and single men & women of good character are invited to
join. Come travel with good people to great times.
|World Naked Gardening Day & Mexican Fiesta - Report
Members from North and South Carolina gathered in the Midlands for the 2013 World Naked Gardening Day and Mexican Fiesta. Wildflowers as well as miniature morning glories were planted. They should start to sprout in 2 weeks.
The hot tub was perfect after a dinner of tamales, refried beans, and a casserole of ground beef, chilies, tomatoes, and shredding sharp cheddar plus
for dessert, we had individual lava cakes and black raspberry ice cream. It was a perfect day. As folk departed, Mother Nature watered the newly
planted seed with light rain. The wind prevented us from doing battle with the pinata; it will remain a decoration in the guest house for a year.
The Auction proceeded slowly with email bids from NY and California as well as local bids. Ya'll have until Sept. to raise funds for the Naturist Action Committee (NAC), AANR Education Foundation, American Nudist Research Library, and Sistercare, a charity for abused women and their children. Update is below for the auction.
Our next event is May 18th - Introduction to Nudism & Kids' Games for Adults. You are welcome to co-host or host it at our property or your own. We have the collection of jacks, balls, coloring books, hula hoops, pickup sticks, etc. and would be happy to bring it where necessary.
The Auction continues as of 5/10/13. We usually have bidders from VA, ID, CA, NY, Canada, TN, OK, and TX as well as the Carolinas and Georgia. The auction will continue till Sept. 7th.
Below is the update of the bids for the annual auction that benefits NAC, AANR Ed. Foundation, American Nudist Research Library, and Sistercare, a charity for abused women and their children. In past years, bids have come in from across the US . We’ll gladly ship merchandise, but you’re responsible for the postage.
