    Default Showers...

    Weak sauce on the showers closing each night at 12am...so basically if you wanted to stay til the end each night, you couldn't bathe. Definitely appreciated them stayin open til 2am last year...bring it back.

    Seriously. I bailed early each night because I can't sleep if me and my tent mate are not showered - the smell in that small of a space is overwhelming, and unhygienic.

    Yea the shower thing was kind of a bummer. I could have sworn they were open until 2AM last year. Even being open until 1 would have been fine. I didn't manage to catch the showers open until Sunday :/

    I used baby wipes thoroughly on Friday and Sunday mornings. Saturday, we drove into Palm Springs to one of our groups aunts houses to shower, sit on some comfortable furniture and have a good meal.

    I just happened to be sleep deprived and somehow woke up by 8 each morning...didn't wait in line Friday or Sunday night, and a tiny line on Saturday. It was great.

    yep...they were definitely open til 2am last year. then on sunday night, the asshole, redneck guy that runs the showers told us that the shower he was standing by is closing down but the one across the field stays open til 2am...of course, after walking around to each other one, they were all shut down. how bout keeping them open til 2am and then opening at 8am instead of 6am? shit's ridiculous...

    I knew that there was a reason I refused to use those things.

    That's the one thing about camping that has always pissed me off--damn showers not being open when I NEED a shower.

    Friday I didnt have any line at all, and Saturday I waited about 10-15 minutes. On Sunday the shower lines were sooooooooooo fucking long though. Luckily Mark, mvanwinkle, told me there was a hose with a spray nozzle near by. So I just gave myself a freezing cold spray shower. I think I might do that everyday next year, rather then ever waiting in line.

    this is true, it was in the shower trailer nearest the camping groups. Big BIG ups to the guy that was operating that particular shower trailer. He just walks up and says to everyone standing in line that had been told about it: "alright, which one of you assholes did it.?" then he laughed and went and cleaned and sanitized it. Dude was actually super cool to me everytime I encountered him. I felt bad cuz he told 6 or 7 of his chairs got stolen, but either he was getting PAID for his work or was just used to all the BS that can go down with some portable shower trailers at a festival.

    Definitely weak that they closed early. Nothing keeps the party going like a cold shower after drinking in the sun all day. Well, maybe cocaine, but I prefer the cold shower...

    Yea, that is how I "showered" on Friday and Saturday, and I'm just going to believe I didn't smell too badly.
