A Wet and Wonderful Addition to Camp

After 4-1/2 weeks of wet wipes and/or wash cloths, my body and anyone around me said, “you sir are long overdue for a long shower”. Truer words were never before spoken!

Many, many thanks to my youngest son for insisting that I take along the old tent shower we used at our Deer Camp many years before. They say the best things in life are free, and this was certainly no exception.

I’ve showered in cheap motels with smaller, less comfortable showers than this one!

What a refreshing and cleansing experience! I May have to use this again…and soon!

Already a neighbor stopped by to ask where I got this tent. His jealousy was apparent, but in no way was I going to offer him a test run! Besides, it came from Gander Mountain, a company that is no more.

Thanks to the abundance and intensity of the Arizona sunshine, an included water bag will heat up 3 gallons of water in just a couple hours; easy as can be.

The shower is even colored correctly to fit right into our camp set-up.

With this addition I feel our camp is complete. Who could ask for anything more?!!? Much appreciated, son!
