Did i tell you about that time we used our portable shower?
It has been one of the best things i have experienced with the VanLife. I have tried outdoor showers before but this thing was something else.
We were away from the city, in the middle of nowhere. We found a place made for us. flat ground, not loose sand, big area, with few trees around, lots of bush, good view but still got a lot of privacy and an open space. Perfect place to have a campfire.
So yes, we had a good setup. Chairs, table, fire burning getting our tea ready. Then, we decided to try out the new portable shower.
The portable shower is a simple bag that you fill with water and has a shower head with a handle so you can open and clse the water tab. It holds 20 liters and it is suppose to get warm with the sun.
We bought it in Kmart just to try it out because it was cheap, and I mean like $10AUD something like that. Easy to carry around and we thought that even if it is not used as a shower, we could always use it for something else like washing dishes, etc.
Mark hanged the bag from the top of the van, it was lying on the side of the van, against a window. Then, on the ground, we placed a mat…ok,it really is a piece of synthetic grass, which not only looks great but works nicely.
It was cold outside and the sun was setting, but we had a great spot and awesome setting. The water was boiling in the fire, then we put some of it in the portable shower. So yeah, we had a hot and relaxing shower.
It was pretty cool. I was the brave one who decided to try the shower first. And it was one of those showers you don’t want it to end. Where I was, I could feel the warmth of the fire, had the sunset as view, and was standing on the (synthetic) grass so didn’t have to worry about having sand on my feet. Just a shower but it was such a great experience #BestShowerEver
