    I frequently just heat up a gallon of water on the camp stove. Using a cup, I get head wet and shampoo my hair and wet wash cloth to clean up the rest.

    But then I've also been known to just wade out into the lake and take a cold bath. If I was really dirt.

    I was also about to suggest if you have a trailer with a living quarter, but no shower you could use the sink couldn't you? Just plug the sink up and let it fill up then dunk you head. You could then put the shampoo on and dunk your head again and be done. Isn't that a possibility? I do that in our sink sometimes when I wake up late for school. You could always swim later if you wanted to wash your body.

    Lots of good ideas on how to clean up. BUT . . . The Main Point is to get out and DO IT! Go riding. Go camping.

    Let the details take care of themselves and just go have fun!

    ^^Precisely . Come spring, I may go out on my own if my family won't go with me.

    AMEN smrobs!

    I'm thinking I might load Mr. Big up for a camping trip this week just to see how it works out.

    Hey, a guy can dream, right?!?

    My dad and I are going to look at trailers with living quarters inside them so that we have somewhere to sleep. I found one that's really nice with a shower and all but if that one gets sold I have another one that doesn't have a shower but a toilet, sink, bed, storage, and ect. That's why I was asking if you could just fill the sink up and dunk you head. I guess I shouldn't worry about that though. I totally agree with what Smrobs said.

    Hello, when we first started camping with our horses, we used a tent. We next used two vehicles, one to pull the trailer and one to pull a pop-up camper. Now we have a truck camper that goes in the bed of the truck that pulls the trailer. We bring pretty much anything we might need, even a laptop so we can watch movies, lol. Not really primitive camping anymore :)

    I just made reservations for April and May in Ebenezer Park, Jasper, Texas and I already had reservations for February! We will be camping in the Brenderup and washing up at the park's facilities. Really nice bath house with private showers with a lock. I would love to have a LQ but I don't so I make do but I like to be clean. It is hot and humid in Texas and hot humid and sweating like crazy is not a good comfortable feeling. We camp out but we eat out while there at least once. The entire group goes over to The Stump Restaurant ! Can't wait. Haven't been to Ebenezer since October and I can't wait til February gets here!

    I've never been horse camping, but hope to do it this summer. Is there anything special you have to teach a horse - other than a tent is not carnivorous?
