    Branch not included?

    Am considering this shower, or the double burner model. As depicted how long of a shower does one get? Adequately hot to melt most of the dirt off of a TW rider?

    It can get very hot and a 5 gal pail of water is plenty for a real good shower.

    Heat water in a pan on stove or campfire to slightly over desired shower temperature.
    Pour into a re-purposed 1 liter plastic seltzer bottle (wife likes Trader Joe's), with a modified cap: Drill several 1/16" holes in cap.
    Hold over head and squeeze.
    Then shampoo, lather all over, then douse again.
    Amazing what only a liter of water will do...most of the time...if I remember to wear a hat while cutting firewood with a power saw!

    On short overnighter or weekend trips I just baby wipe off.

    On longer trips I just use a 1 liter water bottle with some holes punched in the cap. I used to use a 5 gallon water bag but it took a ton of effort to setup ad get hot water on and many places I go dont have readily available water so id have to use what I was able to bring on the bike.

    Take some black PVC and put it on the roof and let the sun heat it up. During the day while out riding. Small hose and a couple valves, KISS method.

    Water filled car or truck inner tube used to work well for me. It can get plenty hot enough most of the time.

    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Just fill your Tdub tube up with water and air like a tractor. Now you are set for that added traction needed and can take a (littletommy) shower when you are done. Just remember your mini air compressor to fill your tire back up with air or a new shower.
    PS: Don't use tire sealers such as slime when using for a shower, you could scare all the campers away.

    That all sounds a lot better than rolling in the snow to get clean. rolling-in-snow.jpg

    However the times I used a solar heated shower bag I seemed to miss the peak temps, water had cooled by time I was ready to clean up my act at end of day.

    I used to back pack a lot. Baby wipes was the easy method. wipe the smelly places and the face and hands everyday. Then a shower every few days. I used to have these 2 1/2 gallon black plastic jugs. Fill them in the am. Let them set in the sun. Use a rope and pull up into a tree. Then take a shower. Could get a couple of showers from one. My brother and I did this method up in the mountains in Wyoming several time.
