    Shower trailers will not be on the rally grounds until Wednesday, July 11th.

    Early set-up people will need to use the one (yes, there is one) shower. Or you can ask a friend with a hotel room to use theirs... Or ... there are plenty of water spigots also.

    We could bring a hose and sprayer to wash the dirty masses

    Tnx Sue,

    I can only take one shower at a time so I'm good to go.

    I almost want to show up early for one of two reasons:

    - Charge a "modest" fee for using the shower in my hotel room

    - Watch all of the "early arrivals" who didn't really want to volunteer freak out when there is a several hour wait for the shower.

    Hot Showers

    The anticipation of this rally just keeps building. First, Sue lets me volunteer for early setup. Then, I find that there are no shade trees. And now, I learn that I get to shower outside. WOW! It doesn't get any better than this! If we don't have adventures, our stories get boring.

    Remember, the difference between adventure and adversity is attitude.

    I was just thinking; everyone has the option of using the ponds on the rally site. Look out for geese before entering, and watch your step!

    Just the right attitude to have. However, since I bought a cover, if you camp close to me I will share some of the shade.

    I'm looking forward to the adventure which is less than 2 weeks away.

    True but then again I doubt the facility wants thousands of campers taking outdoor showers. (gray water issues).

    I never have a problem scoring a shower at the rally because I go at "off hours", i.e. the middle of the night.

    With shower trailers there is usually an attendant and the trailer is closed for a period of time so the attendant can get some rest, do service etc. There is a huge difference between 48 showers that are available 24 hrs and 48 showers that are open from 8am to midnight, hence the question about hours.
