We had a 5 L bucket of water. I got a small saucepan and filled it from the bucket and boiled it up on the stove. Then I emptied it back into the bucket and proceeded to scoop a panful of warm water and dump it directly over my head. Soap up and repeat the process - very refreshing. I used only about 2 litres of water for the whole wash. My wife then reluctantly did the same, only she had to have the saucepan boiled up twice. To this day, she recalls how refreshing it was. It is the most refreshing way to have a shower. But we still don't bush camp unless absolutely necessary - these days it is ensuites or nothing.... To each his own - I am jealous of those who can go out well away from it all and camp, but probably will never get the chance again.



They area funny breed. My missus wont go camping again. Fair enough..that now means I get away by myself. Normally I,ll jump in a river...winter or not. As you say...each to their own but I think many nowadays most dont really experience real camping. So much pressure on many camping spots now as well. Showers aren,t an issue...its the pigs that cant dig a hole or cover there dunny paper whilst camping. Cape York looks like a snow field at time thanks to those that haven't the intelligence to shit properly.

Nothing like a shower after a few days of nothing or at best a "pommy wash".

Too right Dicko, maybe they should read this book...

My only problem with it is that it's Version 4. I'm wondering what was wrong with versions 1, 2 and 3 that they had to update it ? I hate to think.
