i love the showers. i can understand some women leaving their shower bag in the weeds around the showers but don't leave stuff in the shower. i've almost stepped on someone's razor more then once. plus, i like to be able to set my stuff down when i'm showering. kind of like the headlamp caution. just be courteous and safe. i really don't want to ruin my fest by stepping on a razor one night when i'm showering without using a flashlight.

another courtesy reminder - please plan your shampooing to a time when the showers are NOT busy. When there's a line, a quick few minutes wash is appreciated.

Better yet, leave your razors at home! Shaving takes much longer than shampooing.....or do it at your campsite with a dishpan of water.

Totally agree with not leaving your stuff at the showers so we all have space for our stuff. But I gotta say I don't think it's fair to ask people to plan their shampooing around busy times. Hair washing is a regular part of showering for most people. Sometimes I shave at my tent. If it's not busy at the showers, I do it there but it literally takes me 10 seconds per leg (I'm not worried about missing a hair here and there). I think as long as people do their shower business pretty quickly when there's a line, it's all good.

We have two preschoolers who do not understand the concept of hurry so unfortunately, we have to take quite a bit of time in the shower. Believe me when I say it stresses us out that people are waiting and we are taking too much time.

i understand parents with kids. kids have the glorious ability to not understand time constraints. i don't care about hair washing either. i just don't like the trash and the misc things left around the showers. thats a whole other story.

Ditto about the stuff left lying around the showers. Jeez, people, pick up your stuff! That goes for the dishwashing area too. I made the mistake of using a sponge once that someone had left there, and boy did I pay for it...

Where can you set up a solar shower?

That can be tricky to accomplish. If you're camped in a crowded area, you won't want to flood the neighborhood by setting up a shower! The other challenge is getting the water warm. The camping areas are heavily wooded, so it's hard to get the bag warm, because the sun's rays don't really poke through the tree cover.
