Bathing while camping?
 
Ok campers, I am getting personal? :shocked:

Do you bathe when you go camping? I ask this because I have camped with many people that tend not to, just fresh clothes and they are done. I have to shower everyday, cant stand not too. We have camped with other people, luckily for me in their own tent :), but they didnt shower the whole time.

Is it common for you not to shower while on a camping trip?

I finally have a shower in my trailer that I can ACTUALLY use without becoming Hudini to get clean so I am thankful for that :10001:

I will use public showers but dont like to for obvious reasons.

I'm like you. I have to have a shower every day. I always have one before I go to bed. I don't care what time it is either. Now that I have a shower in the trailer, which for me is small but I manage. One of the first things I look for in any campground is how clean the washrooms are and I always where my flip flops.

I always take a shower on the trip, but not always every day. Alot depends on if its hot and sticky, then heck yeah. But if its cool out, i can wait till the next morning. The problem using the camper shower is the dang tank fills up so fast. I have seen others run their grey water hose out in the woods, but I dont think your supposed to do that.

Sounds like a chapter from deer camp.

I'll use a public shower if I am camping more than 3 days

I hear that outback, exactly what I was thinking. Few guys at deer camp for a few days will make you cry

We usually take showers daily as well. The only time we dont is when its not real hot. But after sitting by the fire all day, you smell like a smoke bomb and I just feel dirty

Every Day!
 
I have to shower everyday, no questions asked. Like someone else stated, I take one no matter what time, just cant go to bed without a shower.

I usually take one daily, but sometimes while camping the day gets away from me. If it gets late, I will skip it, but generally take one the next day. I DONT go the whole trip without one

cassiem 02-07-2008 10:06 AM

Well, I am glad to hear that most of you shower regularly :10001:

That is a plus in my book. Its not fun to be snugglin with a sweaty/dirty man, I will say that much :shocked:

I am so glad to see we are all clean campers here. I am not gonna hang out with yall if you dont shower :)

We use to tent camp in the backwoods(state land, no campgrounds). So a shower wasn't an option. Most of those trips where 3-4 days. We would try to find a lake, river, stream to clean up one or two days.

Staying in campgrounds I shower everyday. We also backwoods camp with our camper now, and I will shower at least once over the weekend. It's hard you can only take so much water with ya, and the gray tank is only so big. I try to leave most of the water for the wife and kids on those trips.

You dont stand a chance in the shower if your dry camping, I think I recall you having 4 women in that camper....No chance :whip:
