KIRKSVILLE, Ind. (AP) -- Members of a southern Indiana nudist camp founded more than 60 years ago are worried that the Interstate 69 extension being built adjacent to the rural resort will ruin its peace and tranquility.

The Evansville-to-Indianapolis highway extension will run past Fern Hills Club, a private family nudist resort that opened near the Monroe County town of Kirksville in 1947.

Another article from a Gannett site indicated that the nudists worry that people will see them from I-69, which is elevated where it goes past their camp, at about 1/4 mile distance.

So people who don't mind seeing each other nude are worrying that clothed people will see them from the road???

You can't make this stuff up!

Having been to nude beaches when I was in college, I can guarantee you that people who want to be seen in the nude should never be seen in the nude.

Scarier is that this is part of the proposed NAFTA SuperHighway that will eventually link the Mexican border to the Canadian border. The North American Union nonsense

People should be more worried about the Illegal Aliens, Drugs, Gangs, and Drug Cartels coming from Mexico that this highway will eventually bring

When I was in college in Michigan, those interstate signs were among the most often stolen (and displayed in frat houses).

There is an exit 69 somewhere, which exits onto Big Beaver Road. That has been shown before here on Free Republic. Another double entendre road sign to look for.

I found it on Google Maps. It’s on I-75 north of Detroit, Michigan.

Well, I guess in the mean time they’ll just have to stick it out and hope for the best.

LOL.

I just have to say as an Indiana resident: In all my 40 years as a Hoosier (lifelong), I didn’t even know that place was down there!

I didn’t bother to look it up, but I would say this is probably only an hour or so south of me...

That’s funny.
