It's time to talk about our plan for personal hygeine on the road.
Since we aren't planning on staying in any hotels that cost more than $30/night1, we are more limited in how often we will have access to showers. I originally thought that I would be fine going two days without a shower but I think I may be fooling myself. A shower every other day sounds much better, don't you think?
The question is, where can we shower? Here are the options that I'm aware of:
- Campgrounds (if they have shower facilities available - not sure how common this is)
- Community swimming pool showers
- Using our solar shower if we are in a remote enough area
- Cheap motels
- Truck stops2
1 Excepting the occasional splurge on a $50/night hotel, of course. :)
2I'm not so sure that I'm interested in this option. I'm worried about the cleanliness as well as the overall cost; I've read that it's $8-10/person and with two of us, we could have just stayed at a KOA.
