Ponder away...
I think there was a poll for this somewhere. Can't find it at the moment but I suspect some folks may prefer the RV park shower for better water pressure? Or maybe they don't want to dirty their RV shower? I know I use mine in the RV all the time, I prefer to stay in the bus and look out the skylight and either see the moon or sun, depending on when I take my shower that day.

I saw him in the lake at GC@CL - with a bar of soap and a long handled brush. Just another one of those things you never forget...

I have been in coaches where the shower was used for storage more than for showering, that and in parks where there were no sewer, only dump stations, many use shower.

When we first got ours, there was an issue with no hot water, so i used the park shower, in NM with snow on ground, i wont take a cold shower. I have used the park showers if i thought our gray was filling up, in Florida some of the state parks have no sewer hookups, so i used the park.... Larry seldom uses the parks, he just hates them..... After so many years tent camping, it is ok with me. If there are all favorable conditions, i prefer the rv shower..... But When island tenting we had a black solar shower bag left in sun to get hot..... Had a portable shower enclosure made of pvc and tarps.....





Diane toftSFM#64....... (The Original Fast Talking Sliding Finger Mutant) and is retired, duh!

Steve, your ponder deserves a story, and a first hand one from me.
Our CG has no restrooms. Everyone "brings their own".
I was having coffee with the boys on the deck in front of the office when a gi-normous Newell with a stacker trailer pulled up. Through the open office door we heard....
"You don't have restrooms? We must have them!"
"Your RV is not self contained?"
"Yes, but the bathrooms are my wife's wardrobes."

I had one of those black solar bags sometime around 1979... boy, those were the days.

Sitting at the Honda dealer in Pharr. Express service oil change for CRVMutant. 4,490 miles. She will be a happy toad. No longer a newby. Then it's off to the beach. Annie wants to visit the beach shops as part of her count down to BD Friday the 13th...

I may have to look a luau shirt cause there's a big luau brewing April 18th at GC1.2 Redux @ CL. Be there or be square - Aloha!

That's that same 2 karat diamond found there last year. It's the Arkansas Department of Tourism 2 karat Seed Diamond to keep visitors coming... really not necessary cause the GC is attraction enough. Visitors can witness the wonders of Curiosity - or come any time of year to see where it all happens!

Make sure you get it large enough, I hear there may be copious amounts of food!

Say, did you catch ZZ top on Jimmy Kiemmel a few nights back? They're launching a new tour, maybe we could get them to drop in!

Ya know Paul Byrd opened for them before... back in the day - when he and I both had hair.

Uh, I guess I'm not entitled to have opinions since I lost my belly button about 9 years ago during tummy tuck surgery following 150# weight loss. My surgeon offered to give me a few one, but I declined.
