Hot Showers on the Road (Part 2)

Hot Showers on the Road (Part 2)

One of the most common questions I get asked,
“Where do you shower?”

Part Two….

Here are the Two Cheapest ways to get a Hot Shower while on the road.

Since I prefer being clean and showering everyday, I’m always looking out for a shower. I’m a little picky that way and here is the easiest way to maintain good personal hygiene while on the road.

The cheapest showers can usually be found at campgrounds. Surprisingly, most campgrounds I have come across are Free. And, you don’t have to stay at the campground in order to use them.  Just in case they are coin operated, be sure to keep a few coins in your personal hygiene bag at all times.  Oh, and keep this in mind…Most showers are closed between noon – 2pm for cleaning purposes.

The 2nd cheapest place I have found is in small communities & towns with public swimming pools. When you approach the front counter, be sure to let the front staff know that you are a traveler who is just passing through and only looking for a hot shower.  They will give you the “Traveler’s Discount” which is quite cheap.  So, how do you find the public pools in small towns? Easy! While you are entering the town, go the the Visitor Center, they’ll be more than happy to guide you.

There are other methods of maintaining good personal hygiene and I’d love to hear about your experiences, please leave a comment below! 

 

Hot Showers Every Day! Living out of a Vehicle

Hot Showers Every Day! Living out of a Vehicle

I had to pass this information onto you because I thought it was a brilliant idea…

There’s a guy in the USA who has been living out of the van for the past few years.  He’s gone and purchased a Gym Membership from 2 of the biggest national fitness chains who have gyms in almost all major cities.

He’s found that he needed two memberships from the 2 separate gyms because each establishment doesn’t always have their gym in the city he is visiting. But he always able to find one or the other, not only allowing him to have a hot shower whenever he wants, but he gets full use the gym, track, swimming pools, sauna and other benefits…. while traveling!  

He’s worked out his “costs of living” and according to him, both memberships have more than paid for themselves in benefits in just a little over 3 months.

Great idea on his part!
