NJ top tip and again an efficient set up that not only works but cost involved minimal thumbsup ..................... and if rule numbers 1 to 10 not complied with would simply turn it into a golden shower ops

Nightjar,

I have only 1 x 60lt tank in the van, shower etc. (I do carry 3 x 20lt jerries as - a. reserve and b. to cart water back to the camp.)

My process is turn the tap on to about half way (just enough to spray the water). Quickly wet down and wet a scrunchy, then turn it off.

Shower Gel, Scrunchy and wash top to toe, no water running.

Then turn tap back on same pressure as before, quickly rinse off. (The shower head is on flexible hose, so I hold when doing the legs etc.)

I've placed a bucket under the drain and worked out that I use between 3 and 5 lt per shower. I had plenty of practice out bush in the military having a shower with bugger all water, lol.

Still, in this case at least it's hot water.

My hot water system is only a 10lt and both me and SWMBO can shower with that.

We save gas ($90+ for a refill out and beyond) by not using the HWS, by heating the 10L over the fire. We can have the shower running non stop, SWMBO jumps in first and if she overstays her visit and the water goes cold I just catch a bit of the water, reheat it, tip it back in and have my shower.
We have named it our "American Express" Wouldn't leave home with out it. smile


Happy Hunting, Nightjar.

I hate it when your pegs spin and let the rope go. This design eliminates the the peg from being able to twist. As the load point is always facing the tent.

These Japanese forged steel pegs are the best camping dollars I have spent. They will easily drive into rock hard ground and stay put. The same brand copper headed hammer has a claw to insert in the hole in the peg to simply twist it out... bloody brilliant.
The brand is Snow Peak, not cheap, but will last a lifetime.1522752840_ed789eb9-3fb8-4f55-805f-ba3324756ed6.jpg1522752885_ec21c2fa-7ecc-418d-9220-c9691aab4e86.jpg1522752926_4d73e8f2-b654-4dae-8e41-b3125aaa48cc.jpg

Use a similar set up but use a telescopic painters pole, easy to adjust height and light weight ................ can be used for painting when not camping yikes , plus you may already have one collecting dust in the shed wink Came about as found that cooking at night was a pain with light over stove .............. up high as a floodlight the bugs stay up at the light and not in the fry pan with my steaks sad

GC if you have oxy welded then you should pick up tig welding pretty quick ................ just get the puddle flowing .............. have found cleaning the material well before welding is the trick, and some cheap and nasty alloys are more difficult. Lincoln .................. great units thumbsup

No matter what you are putting up, a tent, awning, cover all tarp, always put a half hitch on the supporting pole.
This moves all the energy / pressure onto the pole, and not the canvass.

Cub campers now use a butterfly nut on top of the poles. There is no chance of the pole coming out once the butterfly nut is in place

The half hitch is there to take the pressure of the canvas and on to the pole.
Putting a nut on the top will only turn the awning into a parachute during strong wind.
