First fill out ballot papers, then hike in the buff – that was the motto on the second Sunday in September, after Michael had chosen eastern Eifel Mountains as his hiking destination at the end of the summer.

Air temperatures there rose to 26°C, and the undisturbed sunshine caused some of the 18 nude hikers to apply sunscreen despite the advanced summer. Those, who no longer had enough sunscreen for their calves and shins, hid it in knee-length socks to prevent sunburn on lower legs.

Almost the whole time, the hiking group had the Olbrück Castle Keep in view, while hiking between angels and grove through meadows, pastures, fields, and occasionally through a forest. The gently undulating green of the landscape was often interrupted by white patches, which turned out to be cows and led to daring speculations about why cows in the Eifel do not have brown or black patches in their fur. We did not find a conclusive answer.

After the 13 km long slightly mountainous tour had been completed, the "Neue Marhof" in Niederdürenbach, directly adjacent to a well-attended swing golf course, was the hip spot for numerous ice cream scoops, hot coffee, or cool refreshments after the hike.
