    HM LW Showers

    Looking for some ideas, show us what you made in the way of packable Home Made/cobbled together Light Weight showers.
    Thanks!

    Carrying a shower sounds like a great concept but in general they are extremely impractical. If I was to do it --> I'd fill my Ortlieb pannier with water, hang it up, and use a tube to deliver the water via siphon. Personally I try to find a shower at least every three days or so. I use baby wipes for quickie "pit cleaning".

    water in a folding bucket and a sponge works well, as does
    bringing in your toiletries , and doing a quick sponging off
    where you buy a cup of coffee and hot breakfast.

    I have used these before and they work well. Heat up quite fast if you have time (day off), but you can also add warm water to them if you want to shower quicker.
    Be the person your dog thinks you are.

    A portion of that will work, all I will need is the hose, valve and the head pluged on to a collapsible water carrier. Thanks!
