I am a lady and i think the longest i've gone without a shower/bath is 36 hours :) FACT.

I just can't go any longer, so if i have to have a cold one, i will..... a cold dribble is better than nothing, as proved at Plymouth Volksfest ;)

Generally I like to adopt a max 24 hour rule. This can go out of the window at shows but at worst that'll be fri am - sun pm without one.

In the military if you are on exercise, showers go out the window. Combat showers are what you have instead, baby wipes and deoderant are your friends as is a short hair cut. I adopt the same thing at shows. I have gone about 19 days without a shower in the desert before, that wasn't nice at all :(

I hate not being clean, I have to have one every day where possible.

During one Army operation i never had a shower for over a month but as part of your daily routine you would give all of your hairy bits ,crevises ,feet etc a thorough wash with a face cloth (corner cut of your towel) and liberal doses of non perfumed talk.

Also spent 4 days in a noddy suit (nuclear chemical and biological suit) (charcoal lined) on salsbury plane ,very warm summer digging trenches etc and most of the time with a resporator on which was filling up with sweat.

Was very glad to get a shower after that and would not wish those days on my worst enemy .

As for if your talking about in a camper you can have a good wash so no excuses just like people in hospital having a bed bath

The only problem with them when they came out was they were in a big fuck off tub so you had to try and put them in something a bit more handy and green :D

Do you think we should tell them about the rashion pack bog roll ,folding and corner tare off technique:lol::lol:
