German Has A Different Way Of Relaxing

By Wyatt Earp | September 11, 2010

Hello, I’m Gunther. I enjoy skiing and long, .

A German man’s habit of taking naked walks to reduce his stress levels backfired when his latest escapade triggered a police search and closed down a rail line. Police in the western city of Solingen said Friday that a woman out walking her dog saw the man, who jumped onto the train tracks and fled. She found his clothes nearby and reported the sighting to police.

Police closed the rail line for 1 1/2 hours Thursday night and sent up a helicopter to try and locate the man. He eventually turned himself in, saying he panicked after being seen and fled home.

After gaining back some of those lost pounds, I started walking again last week – five miles a day. Maybe I should start walking naked? I could lose weight and reduce my stress!

    I had to quit jogging last fall due to plantar fasciitis. I started jogging again this spring and I thought the PF came back. Evidently it was “gouty arththropathy (which I just found out this week). I get to start jogging again Monday. Yaay!

    My long naked walks usually end up in short naked runs. I’m in no shape to outrun cops these days.

    Spare us, Wyatt. As a public service, I don’t even wear shorts away from the house.

    Maybe the dude should consider looser pants.

    Picky – I was cycling for a while – at least five miles a day – but when I gained back some pounds, it was easier to walk first, then ride. I wish I could jog/run, but my knees are crap thanks to cross-country and lacrosse.

    Richard – I usually chase the naked guys by running the other way!

    Robert B – I wear shorts all the time. Wore them to Wyattpalooza. I have decent legs.

    Mrs. Crankipants – Never know who (or what) you’ll run into.

    Old NFO – Who cares? Heh.

    RT – Or a nice kilt?

    Wyatt, my knock knees would drown out a conversation while strolling.

    Robert B. – Well, you’d never get lost in a crowd!

    Now Wyatt, think about it. You walk naked in a public area and what happens is someone calls the police. Ergo, stress level goes up as you have to run on your bad knees.

    Stick to walking in shorts except in January. Good story btw. My own naked walks are from the bathroom to the bedroom. That way I don’t scare anyone since the woman is asleep.
