    Call me a pussy but I like the idea of taking a shower when I am on multi-day trips. Being that those are some of my favorite, this is in the mail...

    That's a lot more high tech than what we do.

    We have one of those old sun shower bags. 5 gal. Fill it half with water from the jugs then fill the other half one coffee can at a time with hot water.

    Cool. I have the black shower bag that you hang in a tree and sun light heats up. Works too good, the water can get way too hot, this will probably work better for temp control I would imagine.

    You know my challenge with wanting engine driven compressor... I was thinking about a shell and tube heat exchanger hot water system off of the engine oil coolant but when I saw this it looked simple enough. I will post an update after my next trip! - Good excuse to go! Have a safe but fun one this w/e! :)

    that looks like a nice contraption. i used to have something along those lines for camping, it was basically a big rubber water bag with a hose attached to it. fill it up, hang it in the sun for a few hours and youd have a nice lukewarm rinse.

    im going to have to make sure my gf doesnt find out about those propane ones or ill be forced to buy one...

    I've used the sun deal too... It's just when you are not going to the same camp at night its a PIA. This baby will heat 5 gal from 68-100 in 5 min - so I'm told. I hope I don't have to do a nitros injection to get that time. Even if I have to wait 10 minutes that will work for me!

    Wow, that sounds nice. May have to invest in one of those before hunting season rolls around again.
