Every shower I take in our 17 is a sponge bath with a rinse. I like to count and see how many seconds of water it takes me to wet down, then for the rinse off. I can usually do it in about 45 seconds worth of water and our shower head is about 2 gallon per minute.

Here in the buggy Midwest we have to live in insect repellent most of the year in the woods, I hate climbing into bed with that stuff on. We use our shower all the time and can still go for quite a few days before needing to empty the grey water. I do keep a bucket along that I can empty some grey water into and walk it to the toilet to extend our capacity when necessary. Ranger at Yellowstone taught me that trick

Great idea, I wonder if the guys on the Honey Wagon could expand their service and sell beer - perhaps Granvile Island Honey Ale.

There are honey wagon services available in Quartzsite, AZ over the winter snowbird migration.

In one pipe, and out the other?

I quaffed one of those Honey Ales at the brewery in February. Next time I stay in Vancouver, it most definitely will be on Granville Island. Great hotel for a decent price, lots of cool things to shop for, and lots of great libations and nosh.
